What did he say? Now, what are fans saying? Check out his apology here!
Now, AllKpop want to release something and it was his apology. If you haven’t read my post that I posted literally two minutes ago you should check it out before reading this. Psy sent it his apology to MTV News and here’s what he said:
“As a proud South Korean who was educated in the United States and lived there for a very significant part of my life, I understand the sacrifices American servicemen and women have made to protect freedom and democracy in my country and around the world. The song I was featured in — from eight years ago — was part of a deeply emotional reaction to the war in Iraq and the killing of two innocent Korean civilians that was part of the overall antiwar sentiment shared by others around the world at that time… While I’m grateful for the freedom to express one’s self I’ve learned there are limits to what language is appropriate and I’m deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted. I will forever be sorry for any pain I have caused anyone by those words.”
“I have been honored to perform in front of American soldiers in recent months — including an appearance on the Jay Leno show specifically for them — and I hope they and all Americans can accept my apology… While it’s important we express our opinions, I deeply regret the inflammatory and inappropriate language I used to do so. In my music I try to give people a release, a reason to smile. I have learned that though music, our universal language we can all come together as a culture of humanity and I hope that you will accept my apology.”
As I said before, the fans reaction is highly depends on what website it was released. This just so happened to be AllKpop, so of course the fans are more forgiving compare to sites like E! Online. Fans on AllKpop are blaming the American media for digging some bad stuff up and that it happened eight years ago. Stuff along those lines. I want to be a journalist and to see this you have to wonder if they boss told them to do it, or they did it on there own. This hurts me because I want to be a journalist for America and S. Korea, so will S. Koreans will not talk to me because of this incident is going to hurt my credibility and I’m not even out there yet, So, don’t blame to whole American Media, just those who report about this.
Do you guys accept his apology?
