Editor Speaks Out After Red Velvet Member Irene Apologizes for Her Alleged Behavior

The editor and stylist who accused Red Velvet‘s Irene of mean behavior is now speaking out again.

After the 29-year-old girl group member issued an apology for her actions, the editor who accused Irene of words like “electric needles” spoke out again in a lengthy post on Instagram Story to clarify some details.

In the post, she referred to Irene as “C” and her agency, SM Entertainment (which also issued an apology statement), as “B Company.”

“I’ve already been hurt and I won’t ever forget the pain. However, I wanted a direct apology from C in order to protect my dignity as a human being, and I met C together with people in charge from B Company. It took some coordination and time for yesterday’s meeting to happen,” the editor said.

“After I first uploaded my post, I didn’t take any action because I also needed to make rational and wise decisions in every moment in preparation for this situation. The biggest reason was that I didn’t want to create a larger misunderstanding, and I didn’t want to add fire to the rampant speculation and chaos. I thought that there was no need to take rash action because immediately after the incident, I received an apology from someone from B Company who had hired me and the managers who had been there, and they acknowledged her wrongdoing,” they continued.

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 stylist wrote that she was left speechless by the star’s words, described as “electric needles,” who apparently had a reputation from what she had heard from others: “It was over 20 minutes that felt like hell in that unfamiliar room…even when I thought about it for a while, I couldn’t understand her actions. After I collected myself, I wanted to talk to her properly, person to person, and receive an apology. However, she just disappeared. I recorded it in case something might happen. I should take action toward her,” she wrote.

The post also 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.”
