The actress apologised on her Instagram account on March 20:
Hello, this is Go Min Si. First and foremost, I apologise for writing about sad news and causing a stir with pictures of underage drinking. I’m sure some of my supporters hoped that the girl in the picture wasn’t me, and others hoped that I would quickly admit the fact.
I’m not going to deny it. I’m the guy in the picture. Stuff like this, I believe, should not be forgotten because I was young and naive at the time and it’s all in the past. I am aware that people can suffer indescribable injuries as a result of this. I acknowledge that my previous acts were incorrect, and I accept full responsibility for my actions.
Words cannot always explain anything, and it would be difficult to completely convey my sincerity, but I apologise profusely to those who have been harmed as a result of this. I’ll make every effort to pursue a more mature and moral course.
