Star News quoted a spokesperson from JTBC in the matter, “Kim Min Gwi’s role will be reduced starting this week’s broadcast (July 31st). We will also edit his scenes as much as possible.”
Previously, Kim Min Gwi’s agency Big Picture Entertainment shared, “He admits to his wrongdoings, and sincerely apologizes to the many people who have been hurt by his immature judgments and behaviors.” They continued, “Regarding the claim that Kim Min Gwi broke the COVID-19 quarantine guidelines, that is not true. He was notified to stay in self-quarantine on May 22nd, and while in self-quarantine, he felt abnormal symptoms and underwent a COVID-19 test. After he tested positive, he focused on getting treatment. He is now fully recovered.”
Now the actor himself has shared a handwritten apology on his Instagram handle in the controversy.
It all started on July 24th when a user claiming to be Kim Min Gwi’s ex-girlfriend took to an online community and shared a post alleging that the actor cheated on her several times. In the post, the user also shared evidence and stated that Kim Min Gwi has flouted quarantine norms during the COVID-19 outbreak after testing positive for the virus.
