Suzy apologizes to photo studio mistakenly tagged in Yang Ye-won controversy
On May 19, Suzy (While You Were Sleeping), through Instagram, writes an apology to the studio that was mistakenly mentioned in the government petition involving YouTuber Yang Ye-won’s sexual harassment issue. She stated, “I recently learned about a studio receiving damages due the change in ownership and studio name, which was (included])in the recent government petition that I signed in support for. It felt like there was more damage done because I had showed support of the [petition], and so I’d like to relay my apologies to the studio. Even though it was about doing something good, it’s definitely my fault for not looking carefully. Even now, I feel like I must let people know that this studio does not have anything to do with this issue, which is why I am posting this. But still, apart from this, I hope that those who are seeking for the truth to be revealed about this case continue hoping for that.”
