Bodybuilder Hwang Chul-Soon took to social media to address the incident.
Hwang Chul-Soon has created a large following during his bodybuilding career. He has sculpted an impressive physique but has been involved in some incidents over the years. Recently, a report came out that he slapped a woman in an attempt to stop her from taking pictures. The woman was taking pictures on her cell phone at the time. Chul-Soon has apologized for the incident.
The initial report stated that Chul-Soon pushed the women after they wanted to get a picture with him. The bodybuilder recently took to social media to address the inexcusable incident.
“Hello. This is Hwang Chul-soon. First of all, we sincerely apologize for causing inconvenience to many people.
Most of all, we decided to reconcile with the parties involved and to stay as brothers and sisters. The assault charge was also closed. We know that violence cannot be justified under any circumstances, and we admit our wrongdoing and sincerely reflect on it. Separately, many articles are distorted from the facts and exaggerated. On the 30th, around 1:30 a.m., I sent my companions out in front of the restaurant located in Yeoksam-dong, and I was alone waiting for the driver. At that time, I saw someone filming me, and I asked if I was filming in a situation where I was clearly aware of the filming. If I had accepted the filming, I could have simply requested to delete it and finished it, but when I said no, I took my phone and checked it, and as a result, I had my image intact. I am very sorry for the responsibility for the broken cell phone in the process. And when the acquaintances of the person concerned stubbornly protested, he had an argument with acquaintances of the other party. In the process, I burst into tears and slapped a friend on the cheek.”

Last month, it was reported that Hwang Chul-Soon was arrested in Gangnam-gu, Seoul after allegedly assaulting two men. The acts of Chul-Soon come after his recent success and fame. It seems as though he has not been handling it well.
This is not a surprise. In Asia, there is much attention drawn to someone like Chul-Soon. This is not an excuse for the reports that are coming out, especially when it comes to treating women. Chul-Soon has apologized to the woman and hopefully this means incidents will no longer happen.
“Again, I am aware that this is a big mistake, and I bow my head a hundred times and apologize to the person concerned. I was not able to control myself even more because I was in the midst of going through trauma from voyeurs and malicious comments. I’m really sorry for causing a scandal. There were similar cases in the past, so we were careful in everything. There were problems during the brawl, but I’m not really the ignorant person who assaults the apologizing fan as in the news. The day before, he gladly took photos of the fans who asked for photos in the same place and paid for the food as well.”
Hwang Chul-Soon has built a physique thanks to his ability to mix nutrition and exercise. He is a well-known Korean bodybuilder with many fans all over the world. This is reason alone to stay out of trouble and remain on stage.
