Naver – isplus.joins: Cha Tae Hyun reps “I returned the golf betting money right away…will step down from all variety shows”

Cha Tae Hyun’s apology:

I’m sorry.
I’m Cha Tae Hyun
First of all, I’m so sorry.
I did not play golf overseas as It was reported but It was a fun game between us within the country, and the money was returned right away at that time.
It was just an act of fun between us but I am so embarrassed to see myself in the group chatroom.
I think, as a public figure who received so much love, it is something that can not be tolerated.
I’m sorry to my fans and the viewers who loved 1N2D for disappointing them. I am really sorry to have caused damage to other members.
That’s why I will step down from all variety shows.
As a father, I feel so sorry for my kids and family, I will reflect on myself. I’m sorry.
