“[Iron] is denying the charges, but it’s been proven that he hit the victim in the face with his fist on September 2016.
It’s hard to confirm his statement that the victim asked him to hit her.
We will not be accepting [Iron’s] claim.
He is guilty of all charges.”
– Seoul Central District Court
“[Iron] does not acknowledge his crimes, and refuses to come to an agreement with the victim, so we ask for 1 year of imprisonment.”
Iron uploaded a handwritten letter of apology on his Instagram.
“Hello, it’s Jung Heon Chul.
First, to my peers… and to everyone who supported me, I would like to express my sincere apology through this letter.
I caused heartache to those who trusted me through the recent array of unpleasant news…
And I wasn’t able to acknowledge it until just recently.
I thought it was cool to act however I wanted without regret, instead of calculating this and that.
However, I recently looked back to realiz that my actions were hurting those around me and those supporting me.
You were burdened and hurt just by the fact that you trusted and supported someone like me…
I made the past days of those who loved my music into trash..
I only knew how to act cool and pretend to be a man, but now I am embarrassed by my disappointing and childish actions.
I contemplated a lot whether I should express my apology to everyone whenever the unpleasant news arose, but
It didn’t feel like it was the proper way to approach you guys, so I was unable to apologize to everyone..
All of the situations that happened so far was because of my insults.
Although it won’t be enough, I would like to express my deepest apology to everyone who had trusted and supported me, as well as everyone who were hurt by my actions.
I now realize my current situation and I will aim to live a full life that is not embarrassing.
I sincerely apologize for causing heartache to everyone.”
