  • SBS doesn’t even apologize. They made the most malicious reports
  • There are still so many people who don’t apologize and reflect on their wrongdoings. I’m already thankful even if they make an apology like that
  • Apologizing is the right thing to do
  • MCB and SBS, what are you doing? JTBC already deleted all the videos about speculations of drug-related behaviors but the M and S companies haven’t done anything
