Jung Joon Young returns to Korea and admits to his crimes

1. [+7873, -56] Things to look out for: Let's see how well he pretends to be sorry (t/n: It was previously reported that Jung Joon Young messaged his acquaintance, "I'll be back from pretending to be sorry" right before heading to his press conference in 2016)

2. [+7672, -57] Because prosecutors gave Jung Joon Young a slap on the wrist during his last hidden camera scandal, they made a monster like Jung Joon Young today. As a public figure, it's also an issue that they allowed this psycho, hella bastard, who did trashy things to come out on TV again. From now on, celebrities like him will be kicked out. 
↪ [+143, -0] He was originally a monster, he just became more of a monster~ 

3. [+2530, -65] I didn't like him since a long time ago.. TV needs to come to their senses and they need to stop allowing dimwit-like bastards from coming out... Bastard...

4. [+1587, -45] Human trash

5. [+935, -215] It's delicate times.

6. [+546, -7] Look at his expression. He's not sorry, he's mad. It's exactly that expression that's saying he got into shit because he has bad luck or he's saying what wrong did I do. 

7. [+530, -14] Wow in a day, the situation changed from Seungri to Jung Joon Young. I thought if you probed more into Seungri, Yang Hyun Suk would come out but it's amazing how they cut the tail, Yang Hyun Suk 

Original Source (SPOTVNEWS via Naver): Jung Joon Young, "I acknowledge all of my crimes...I'll drop everything and reflect forever" Letter of apology

Here's the translated apology statement (cr. Soompi): 
I write to you in shame and guilt.I, Jung Joon Young, once again realized the seriousness of this situation after returning to Korea on March 12. Although it’s already late, I apologize through this letter to all the people who showed an interest in me and gave me a second chance.
In regards to what is being said in relation to me, I admit to all my crimes. I filmed women without their consent and shared it in a social media chatroom, and while I did so I didn’t feel a great sense of guilt.
As a public figure, it was an unethical act worthy of criticism, and such a thoughtless action.
More than anything, I kneel and apologize to the women who appear in the videos who have learned of this hideous truth as the incident has come to light, and to the many people who must be angry at the situation over which they cannot contain their disappointment and astonishment.
I am withdrawing from all the programs that I was appearing on, and I will suspend all activities in the entertainment industry. I will now set down all my activities as a public figure that are not self-reflection, and I will reflect for the rest of my life on my immoral and illegal actions related to the crimes.
More than anyone else, I apologize to the women who have experienced great suffering due to my actions, to the many people who must feel anger even more so than disappointment, and to the many people who made me into a public figure and cherished me.
I will sincerely take part without any falsehoods in the investigations that will begin on the morning of March 14, and I will accept punishment for my actions.
I once again deeply apologize. I am sorry.

Jung Joon Young
1. [+5508, -73] Is he pretending to be sorry again?

2. [+4617, -62] It seems like a letter of apology his entertainment agency constructed, it's not words that would come out of his thoughts

3. [+2019, -42] A person doesn't change easily 

4. [+1243, -44] The saying "condemn the sin, but not the sinner" is all lies, how can you not dislike him after he did things like this?

5. [+1034, -48] Don't kill yourself and receive your punishment

6. [+739, -16] Everyone... Why is every news article about Seungri and Jung Joon Young? Jang Ja Yeon's case.. They're covering it up again. They're doing witness statements. Everyone, if you don't know the name, you're being brainwashed by the media right now..
