Rapper Microdot wrote a letter of apology and explanation after his parents’ prison sentences were confirmed.

On May 1, Microdot posted a lengthy apology letter on his Instagram.

“Hello. This is Microdot (Shin Jae Ho).

When the news of my parents came out in November 2018, I spoke carelessly without a full understanding of the situation and therefore hurt the victims, and I apologize for that.

I’m ashamed of myself for being careless at that time and still deeply regretting it.

I can’t turn back the time with words, but my parents’ faults are my faults and my parents’ regrets are also the regrets that I must bear as a son.

I cannot fully fathom the suffering that the victims and their families went through all this time.

That is why for the past year and a half I have done everything I can to understand the exact facts, and though I might be lacking, tried correct my parents’ mistake.

By April 24, 2020, when the final ruling was made, I had reached an agreement with nine victims as the son of my parents, but I couldn’t reach an agreement with the other four victims and my parents were sentenced to prison.

I would like to once again apologize to those who have been hurt by my parents and those who have been hurt because of what I lack.

I will always be careful not to repeat the same mistakes in the future, looking back on my insufficient actions.

From Microdot (Shin Jae Ho).”

안녕하세요. 마이크로닷 (신재호) 입니다. 2018년 11월 저희 부모님에 대한 뉴스기사가 보도 되었을 때 상황을 정확하게 파악하지 못하고 경솔하게 말을 내뱉어 피해자분들에게 상처를 드린 점 죄송합니다. 그 때의 경솔했던 제 자신이 부끄럽고 지금도 깊이 반성하고 있습니다. 어떤 말로도 시간을 되돌릴 수 없지만 저를 낳아주신 부모님의 잘못은 저의 잘못이기도 하며 부모님의 반성 또한 자식인 제가 가져야 할 반성이기도 합니다. 피해자분들과 그 가족분들이 긴 시간 느끼셨을 고통을 제가 감히 다 알 수는 없을 것입니다. 그렇기에 저는 지난 일 년 반 동안 정확한 사실관계를 파악하고 부모님의 잘못을 바로 잡기 위해 많이 모자라지만 모든 노력을 다했습니다. 최종 판결이 내려진 2020년 4월 24일까지 부모님의 아들로서 아홉 분의 피해자분들과 합의를 하였으나 다른 네 분과는 합의점을 찾지 못하였고 부모님께서는 실형을 선고 받았습니다. 저희 부모님으로 인해 피해를 입으신 분들과 저의 부족함으로 인해 상처받으신 분들께 다시 한 번 죄송하다는 말씀을 드리고 싶습니다. 미흡했던 저의 행동들을 되돌아보며 앞으로 같은 실수를 반복하지 않도록 항상 주의하겠습니다. 마이크로닷 (신재호) 올림

Meanwhile, Microdot’s parents, who were indicted on charges of borrowing a large sum of money from acquaintances and then fleeing the country, gave up their appeal. Microdot’s father was sentenced to three years in prison whereas Microdot’s mother to one year

According to the Cheongju District Court, the couple submitted an appeal release to the court on April 29, meaning they did not appeal the final trial’s ruling. As the deadline to appeal has now passed, their prison sentences have been confirmed.
