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.
