Red Velvet’s Irene Issues Apology After Accusations About Her Behavior

Red Velvet‘s Irene is apologizing.

The 29-year-old girl group member posted an apology following a since-deleted Instagram post by an editor and stylist, which described a rude encounter with a celebrity that left her in tears.

The post included the hashtags “#psycho” and “#monster,” which are also the names of Red Velvet and sub-unit Irene & Seulgi songs, leading fans to speculate it was about Irene.

Irene later wrote a note on her Instagram.

“This is Irene. I am sincerely sorry for hurting the stylist with my foolish attitude and careless words and actions. Getting to this spot involved help from many people who worked together with me, but my immature actions caused great hurt and I regret that and am reflecting. I’ve been looking back on the past because of this, and I’ve felt very embarrassed because of my lacking words and actions and I once again feel how precious the staff are. I will be more cautious about my actions in the future so that this does not happen again. I am sincerely sorry to the fans who support me and to everyone who has been caused concern because of this,” she said.

SM Entertainment, her agency, also released a statement.

“This is SM Entertainment. We are conveying our statement about the stylist’s online post regarding Irene. Irene personally met with the stylist this afternoon and sincerely apologized for deeply hurting her with her careless attitude and emotional words and actions, and she feels sorry for causing concern with her immaturity. Our agency feels responsibility for this incident, and we do not forget the hard work of all the representatives and staff who work together with our company and our artists. We will work hard so that this does not happen again to the people we work with. We once again apologize for causing concern to many people.”

Irene and member Seulgi released several songs over the summer, including hit “Monster.”
