"Hello, this is Seo Ye Ji. I sincerely apologize for the fact that I’m conveying my feelings so late through these written words," Ye Ji wrote.

"Once again, I sincerely bow my head and apologize for the fact that I have disappointed you greatly. All of this stemmed from my immaturity, and I will work hard to behave more carefully in the future and show you a more mature version of myself."

Ye Ji was swept in controversy in April 2021 after news outlet Dispatch released a series of texts from her demanding that Jung Hyun ask for modifications to the script of the drama he was filming at the time, Times. Jung Hyun's leading lady was Girls' Generation's Seohyun and Ye Ji allegedly wanted Jung Hyun to limit his romantic or intimate scenes with Seohyun.

Ye Ji's agency released a statement claiming that similarly, Jung Hyun had also made similar requests to Ye Ji and that their conversation was typical of lovers jealous about physical contact with others. In May 2021, Ye Ji's agency confirmed that she would no longer be a part of the K-drama, Island.
