CNBLUE member Lee Jong Hyun's agency FNC Entertainment have issued an official statement regarding recent reports that the idol was involved in KakaoTalk conversations with Jung Joon Young where he watched illegal hidden camera footage.

The agency said they got in contact with Lee Jong Hyun, who is currently serving in the military, after the reports on March 14, and he confirmed the truth. The statement also read:

"He is reflecting and is [aware that] he deserves criticism as he watched the videos via KakaoTalk, had inappropriate sexual conversations, and inappropriate conversations degrading women as reported. He would not have been an idle bystander if he had proper sexual understanding, and he is regretful about this. He expresses his deep apologies to those who received pain due to the immoral and inappropriate conversations he had without a sense of guilt and also to everyone who has been disappointed.

Feeling embarrassed and horrible, Lee Jong Hyun accepts the criticism of the public regarding his wrong sexual morality and values and is deeply regretful and criticising himself. He will be careful about all of his words and actions as a public figure, and he will reflect and accept the consequences of his wrongdoings."
