Jin Ha, a pachinko actor, apologized for photographing elderly women without their knowledge and closed his Tumblr account.
Jin Ha, who played Solomon in the Apple television+ drama ‘Pachinko,’ has been involved in a controversy after it was discovered that he had previously taken images of elderly females without their permission and made suggestive remarks about them.
Between July 2010 and September 2011, Jin Ha posted over 100 photographs of elderly women taken on Korean subways and buses on his blog, and these photographs have sparked debate as they spread via Korean internet communities.
Jin Ha issued an apology on his personal website on March 26th, in both English and Korean.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to talk about my mistakes.
I completely accept all the criticism I have received. It is true that my Tumblr account, “Korean Flowers in Bloom,” which I’ve had since 2011, should never have existed. I trespassed on the privacy of the women in the photos on the account, and the comments I added to the photos were inappropriate. I regret my actions and am sincerely sorry.
I did wrong in taking those photos and uploading them online 11 years ago. Furthermore, I failed to take into consideration the negative impact and left the account as it was for many years. I sent a request to Tumblr to delete my account and they have now done so. “Korean Flowers in Bloom” no longer exists.
Once again, I apologize to the women in the photos that I took. I also apologize to those who felt uncomfortable at the content of my Tumblr account. I can only be grateful that my lack of judgment in 2011 has been criticized by more clear-eyed readers than me. Thank you again for giving me the opportunity to rectify my mistakes.
I should have been better from the start, but even if I realized too late, thank you for helping me realize what I’d done wrong. I will work hard and study in future so as not to repeat the same mistakes.
