Pilates instructor sorry for insulting singer

Celebrity Yang Jung-won, who is best known as a Pilates instructor, apologized to singer Jun Hyo-seong on Friday for talking behind her back during the online radio show “Bae Sung-jae’s 10.”

Yang took part in the live show as a guest on Thursday, and she brought up Jun when she and the show’s production crew were talking about gums. A song was playing during a break in the show at the time, and Yang made her comment thinking that her voice not be heard on the air.

The Pilates instructor said that she thinks Jun, who is widely known for showing her gums when laughing, underwent surgery to prevent her gums from showing too much. Yang then showed signs of embarrassment upon realizing that her comments were also broadcasted.

Yang is facing harsh backlash for making inappropriate comments about a fellow celebrity. She posted a letter of apology to the public on her Instagram account.

The episode that Yang participated in was slated to be aired on the radio the following day but with the controversial comments cut out.
Yang generated buzz when she starred in the MBC reality program “My Little Television.”
