T/N: Fabien Yoon acted as the French Priest in “Dr. Jin”
Fabien Yoon apologized to JYJ fans.
French model and actor Fabien Yoon recently wrote via his Twitter page, “To all the JYJ fans, I apologize if you were hurt by my tweet. That wasn’t my intention. I just simply chose the wrong words. I was only trying to express my personal opinion on the Dokdo issue.”
“I apologize if I hurt any feelings,” he said. “I will act more prudently in the future. Please support ‘Dr. Jin’ until the end.”
Ahead of this tweet, Fabien shared a photo of a rice wreath that a Japanese JYJ fan sent to Jaejoong, who is currently filming MBC drama ‘Dr. Jin‘. Along with the photo, Fabien had written, “It’s good to see the support, but can we stop saying that Dokdo is their land?“, causing controversy amongst fans everywhere.
There is a recurrent territorial dispute between Japan and Korea over Dokdo/Takeshima, an island that sits geographically between the two countries.
Fans who saw Fabien’s tweet responded with, “It’s just his opinion,” and “He apologized, so let’s just pretend this never happened.”
