Kang Daniel apologizes for disparaging ‘Street Woman Fighter’ dancers and making remarks that lacked gender sensitivity

Singer Kang Daniel, who was recently embroiled in controversies over his absurd remarks about ‘Street Woman Fighter’ dancers, released his official apology.

On July 20th, Kang Daniel posted an apology on his Instagram account, saying “First of all, I want to apologize for the issue related to the private messages”. He continued, “I’m sorry for causing unnecessary misunderstandings when I exaggerated the meaning of ‘I was nervous and trembling’. I admitted that my response in the situation where I should have been alert to the possibility of gender conflict promotion and expansion was imprudent.”

He added, “I’m sorry that this whole process hurt my fans, who always care for me and worry about me. From now on, I will be more cautious in my remarks and actions.”

Earlier, Kang Daniel mentioned Mnet’s “Street Man Fighter” while exchanging his private messages with fans on the paid communication service Universe. Kang Daniel, who was the MC for “Street Woman Fighter”, said, “I’m really close to the male dancers and I also have lots of experience in that scene. That’s why I can be the MC. To be honest, I feel very comfortable being on the show with male dancers… because I don’t get sucked of my energy”. He added, “It was scarier when I did ‘Street Woman Fighter’, so I like the current show better. I was really scared and nervous back then. The female dancers also wore bold eyeliner and makeup.”

When some fans pointed out that his remarks were inappropriate because he was having sexist attitudes toward the dancers, Kang Daniel reacted, “What’s wrong with saying that I got scared? Imagine yourself reading a poem in front of 60 men. It’s scary, right?”. Since fans continued to criticize him, Kang Daniel mocked them, saying “What do you mean I’m having a sexist attitude? I’m at a loss for words. I’ll skip them. Block, bye ppyong! People like them would get mad when they see stand-up comedy shows. Let’s just live comfortably. Life is already tough.”
