Singer Nam Tae-hyun, who caused controversy by using Philopon, bowed his head again.

Nam Tae-hyun said, "Hello, I'm Nam Tae-hyun. I made a big mistake, but I spend each day sincerely reflecting and repenting. I bow my head once again to apologize and thank everyone who is worried and curious about my news."

He continued, "After being discharged from the rehabilitation center and finding a space in the same building, I am continuing to strengthen my determination to quit medicine. In the process, my mind and soul are improving a lot, although slowly. Here, I am gradually improving my wrong lifestyle and way of thinking. “I plan to work harder to blend in with the world as I go out,” he announced.

In addition, “After much thought and consideration, I finally realized that what I ultimately have to do is ‘music.’ Of course, there are parts that are scary and daunting, but what I can do to repay those who wait and support me is to create comfort and joy, not controversy. “I think it’s music I can offer,” he said.

Nam Tae-hyun said, "That's why I'm putting even more effort into preparing an album that contains all my stories. Since I have to do everything from start to finish on my own, I'm raising production costs little by little by working part-time, so it may take a while. But these songs are “When I come out into the world, I will come back with good results that will satisfy those who have been waiting.”

Lastly, he added, "I will occasionally update you on the status of my work. And I will continue to reflect on myself more, feel remorse, and live with an apology to those who have been hurt."

Last January, Nam Tae-hyun was sentenced to one year in prison and two years of probation on charges of using Philopon.
