Home » Lee Hyori scandalizes herself about animal fur + her apology

On the 6th of October, Lee Hyori made a statement that it is easier to hug and love animals instead of wearing them. Due to the weather getting colder during this season, she publicized her observations on how department stores are filling in with fur coats and other clothing. Although acknowledging the fact that she used to wear them before, Lee Hyori revealed that she has learned her lesson and urged everyone to love the animals and join volunteer work with her.

However, just days after her public statement, netizens found recent photos of her sporting a leather jacket, starting up controversy.

On the 7th of October, Lee Hyori updated her Twitter account with an apology saying, “Everyone, I am not a perfect person. I’m just an ordinary being that worries over ten thousand times until I take action about something that I trust is right. I’m a person who tries to do things one by one. Rather than rebuking, please teach, help and support me a lot.”

By the end of her update, she also expressed that, “This is a night where I feel ashamed of myself, whom can’t throw away the leather jacket she likes and still salivates over the scent of pork cooking at a meeting with friends.”

Lee Hyori’s public apology via social networking site Twitter did not only catch the attention of her fans, but also by fellow singer Uhm Junghwa who also expressed her support.
