Love Alarm and Sweet Home actress Go Min Si has been swept up in a controversy involving underage drinking.
In a now-deleted post from an online café on the web portal Daum, screenshots of Go Min Si were shared. They show a group of friends in a bar posing for the camera and drinking alcohol.
The screenshots were taken from Go Min Si’s Cyworld post dated May 29, 2011. Born in 1995, she was 17-years old in Korean age at the time the photos were taken, meaning she was still a minor.
Go Min Si took to Instagram to address the issue and offer an apology. She admitted to being the woman in the photos, adding that she understands it is not an issue that can be excused by her young age.
Hello, this is Go Min Si.
First of all, I apologize about my underage drinking and the pictures from then having caused you concerns. I also apologize for uploading this disturbing post.
I know some of my fans may have wanted me to deny that I am the person in the pictures, while others may have wanted me to come clean and admit my fault if the pictures are real. So, with no excuse, the person in those pictures is indeed me. And I am aware that this is not something that can be let pass and washed away, simply because I was young at the time or because I have been immature in the past.

She resolved to take responsibility for her actions, and she apologized to those who were hurt by what she did.
I also know how disappointed and hurt my fans are going to feel because of this. I take complete responsibility for my past and I continue to reflect on my wrongdoings. Sometimes words cannot deliver everything I feel. But even if the sincerity fails to reach you, I am really sorry for all the inconveniences I have caused.

She ended by expressing her resolve to become a more mature person, “Going forward, I will strive to become a better, more mature person.”
