Kangta apologizes and cancels the release of his new song

On August 4, Kangta took to his personal Instagram account to apologize and announcing some important decisions related to his work. His statement reads as follows.

Hello, this is Kangta.

I want to bow my head and apologize for causing deep disappointment and pain to the fans who have loved and supported me for a long time with a personal matter. Also, I want to apologize once again to those who have been hurt by me and those around me, as well as those who were unknowingly brought up during this.

As I have been active and loved for a long time, I should have also been better with my personal life as well, and there is no room for excuses here and everything is a result of my own lacking and negligence. Henceforth, I will look back on past times and deeply reflect on my actions, doing my best to become a more mature person.

I will be canceling the release of my new song, which was scheduled for today, and for my musical and concerts, as they are activities that have already been planned and are matters that I cannot make decisions on by myself, I will do my best to go in a direction that minimizes the damages.

Once again, I deeply apologize for causing concern to my fans.

I am sincerely sorry.

Except his apology doesn't actually address anything lol

Don't apologize to use, apologize to the women you cheated on.

boiii!! see, it wasn't worth it. everytime things like these get exposed you would think that men would get the message but nah.

Idk, as someone who was cheated on and as someone who knows absolutely nothing about Kangta, I don't really think there was a need for him to cancel everything. Like sure, postpone the song and concerts etc if they're right around the corner but cancelling them completely seems overkill.
He fucked up but everyone involved is physically fine. He just needs to properly apologize to the women he actually hurt, not his fans. Hopefully he learned his lesson and actually puts in some effort to become more mature.

‘Hopefully he learned his lesson and actually puts in some effort to become more mature.’

The cynic in me thinks if he’s 40 and still acting this way, he probably is never going to grow up imo

lmao you're probably right, I guess I'm having an unusually positive day and want to believe that people can change.
His career should be enough motivation for him to stop acting like an ass, if there's a new cheating scandal whenever he's supposed to release new music (which in turn will result in cancelled plans) then he's not going to bring in any money and he might not be able to renew his contract.
Although I have no idea how popular he is these days. Even as a kpop legend I would imagine that he needs to keep doing something in order to stay relevant...

What kind of forty yr old dude hasn’t even matured yet? Not even apologising to the women he cheated on or properly acknowledging what he did is peak childish behaviour. He’s only apologising to his fans bc they’re the only ones keeping him relevant.

I’m glad he flopped on himself. This whole thing was a true self-drag.
