CSJH The Grace’s Dana Apologizes For Her Behavior During Live Broadcast


CSJH The Grace’s Dana has apologized for her behavior during a recent Instagram live broadcast.

On November 27, the singer was criticized for showing her middle finger while speaking with fans, holding out a knife, and driving while using her phone during a live broadcast on her personal Instagram.

Furthermore, Dana also shifted the blame on fans for her solo album’s poor results and pointed her finger at the other CSJH The Grace members as the reason why the group hasn’t released any new albums.

During the live broadcast, she had responded to fans, “I can’t [release more albums] because the response during ‘Touch You’ was bad. If you guys had worked hard and [got the song] up to No. 1 on the Melon charts, I could’ve released another solo album. It’s not Melon’s fault, it’s your fault.” Dana had previously released an SM Station track entitled “Touch You” in 2016.

Dana eventually posted a public apology through SM Entertainment on November 28. Read her full statement below:

“Hello, this is Dana.

“First, I’d like to genuinely apologize for causing such an inconvenience.

“I’m deeply reflecting on the fact that I caused others to feel discomfort and offended by my inappropriate behavior and comments, along with my actions that were excessive enough to be dangerous.

“Everything is due to my negligence. I apologize once again.

“Many of you sent me your heartfelt support after seeing my changed appearance, so I’m sorry for disappointing you, and I feel ashamed. I will be careful and make sure that something like this doesn’t happen again.

“I bow my head in apology once again.”

Dana debuted in 2001 as a solo artist and later joined CSJH The Grace. She currently stars in the Lifetime reality program “Wings Again Dana” (literal translation), which focuses on her weight loss.

i haven't watched the IG live, so it can very well be that there is context that explains this...but the screenshots look alarming...is everything ok with her??

oh dear

i would've brushed it off if she just stuck the middle finger, but the fact that she showed a knife and was using her phone while driving .. doesn't sit too well with me

Yeah...
Also the people who were watching and commenting on her IG Live were probably only her fans, so putting them down like this was not her brightest idea. :/

(P.S. welcome back OP, i missed your posts ^^)

When I saw the whole thing go down, I thought she was having a mental breakdown tbqh. Regardless of anything, I hope she is safe and gets the help she needs.

c/p from asianjunkie:
i mean she didn't lie but she also made sure to kill her career (or whatever was left of it)

oh yikes, honey, no. we don't drive and use our phones. the other shit wasn't false but it wasn't smart either. I can't help but think about the kind of pressure recording your weight gain and loss puts on a person, esp in a country like Korea.

I seriously hope that show will be full of positive vibes and self-acceptance... she does not seem to be in a good mental state for anything else rn

the first (two?) episode(s) came out already. I have them on my watch later list, but I'm kinda tentative about it from the trailers.

Sis needs to blame SM, not her fans.

ooh, messy.

but also, filming a show about your weight loss seems like a lot of pressure.

i'm seriously worried for her mental health. i hope someone is looking out for her

She really does not seem stable, its alarming. I hope she is getting some form of help, even though I think we all know how mental health is looked at in SK.
