She then apologized, “In particular, I want to bow down and apologize to those who suffer from autism spectrum disorder, family members, friends and officials.”

Regarding the video, which made her embroiled in controversy, she admitted, “I produced situational contents by taking advantage of Woo Young-woo’s characteristics, but I didn’t think deeply about the fact that Woo Young-woo’s behavioral characteristics were caused by autism spectrum disorder, unlike general dramas. My fault is that I didn’t consider it enough.”

Misunjjang added, “I feel ashamed and sorry to think of those who may have been hurt by me. In the future, I’ll think and act more carefully before producing contents. Once again, I sincerely apologize.”

After being criticized for making fun of autistic people, Misunjjang apologized through a comment, “I’m sorry if I made you feel uncomfortable. I wrote ‘Woo Young-woo disease’ because I thought it was a trend in which people imitate specific famous figures like ‘IU disease’ or ‘Chuu disease’. I was definitely wrong as I didn’t think carefully about this part.”

Currently, all of the above-mentioned videos have been taken down from Misunjjang’s YouTube channel.
