HIGHLIGHT member Son Dong Woon delivered his apology to fans who criticized him for his marriage announcement.
On July 6th, Son Dong Woon turned on a live broadcast on Instagram for the first time after his marriage announcement to communicate with fans. He carefully said, “I thought a lot about how I should meet you all and that’s why I’m doing a live broadcast”.
Upon seeing his weary face as if he had had a hard time, some fans expressed concerns. Throughout the live broadcast, the male idol also showed signs of nervousness, such as touching his head continuously. The comment section was full of both supportive words and criticism, and Son Dong Woon read all of them.
Looking a bit nervous, the HIGHLIGHT member confessed, “I’m feeling very sorry to all of you right now, so I think I need some time”, adding “I just put more burden on the members and the company. That’s the first thing I’m sorry about and I want to apologize to them.”
He continued, “I will do my best to work harder and perform better in the future. I will strive to meet everyone more and for a long time”.
After apologizing to fans, Son Dong Woon left a message, saying “I hope everyone is doing well, eat well and have nice sleep. I think I’ve made it sounds too heavy, so I’m sorry for causing such a heavy atmosphere and I promise that I will return with better news next time”.
In fact, Son Dong Woon hosted the live broadcast because he had been criticized by some fans after announcing his wedding earlier on June 27th.
At that time, he uploaded a handwritten letter, saying “Thankfully, I have met someone who understands me and cares for me a lot. I wanted to continue being with this person from now on. Therefore, we decided to hold our wedding in September. The person I will marry is not someone with the same job as me, so I plan to quietly have a wedding ceremony with only our families and close friends. I’m so sorry that I cannot personally share this news with you sooner and have no choice but to keep it a secret.”
After then, opinions were divided among fans. Many sincerely congratulated Son Dong Woon on his new start, but some expressed disappointment, saying his marriage would affect the group’s activities.
Meanwhile, Son Dong Woon will hold a wedding privately with his non-celebrity girlfriend this September.
