KUALA LUMPUR: South Korean singer Baek Ji Young has spoken up about her actor husband Jung Suk Won’s recent detention for alleged drug use.
According to a news report by Soompi, Baek had teared up as she talked about the incident during her concert at the Olympic Park in Seoul.
She said: “After I found out by reading the news yesterday, the next 24 hours felt like 10 years.”
She apologised on behalf of Jung and added: “My husband has committed a grave error. As his wife, spouse and companion, I am reflecting remorsefully (on his mistake) along with him.
“I don’t know how long it will take, but sometime in the future, we will show you that we are living well together.”
Last Thursday, Jung was arrested at Incheon Airport on suspicion of drug use. Released from police custody the following day, he confirmed in a statement from his agency that he had admitted to the charges and would be cooperating with police investigations.
Baek reaffirmed her commitment to her husband. “I thought back to the wedding vows that you take when you get married,” she said.
“As a wife who will love him no matter what, in difficult times, in happy times, for richer, for poorer, I plan to stay by his side. Please look upon us with forgiving eyes.”
