On Jan. 11, Jay released a statement on Weverse apologizing for comments he made on Korean history during a previous live broadcast.
Hello, I’m Jay from ENHYPEN.
Today I was surprised by the response from the fans after the live stream. Whatever the reason, I sincerely apologize for making ENGENE uncomfortable. My comments on a subject as important as the history of Korea were careless and based solely on my personal impressions. It wasn’t a subject I should have talked about with my limited knowledge. This incident reminded me that I still have a lot to learn. While I don’t want to belittle our proud history, I think viewers could have felt that way, and it was my fault. We’re sorry. From now on I will be more careful and learn more to become an artist that ENGENES can be proud of. I am always learning a lot from you.
Jay is a Korean-American member of ENHYPEN. The idol debuted with the group in 2020.
