Troubled reality star resigns
“I sincerely apologize for causing trouble, and if my appearance on TV programs causes discomfort to some people, I believe that is enough a reason for me to step down,” the 45-year-old stated in a press release on Friday through the law firm Next Law.
“I will clearly answer all questions at court to resolve any confusion [regarding the recent scandal] after resigning from the variety
programs in which I appear.”
The former National Assembly member has starred in various popular reality TV programs, including “Wednesday Food Talk,” “Kang Yong-suk’s Gosohan 19” and “War of Words.”
Kang’s adultery case was publicized when the blogger’s husband filed a lawsuit against him in January, demanding 100 million won ($85,000) in damages.
