“I have no words to say. I apologize,” said Governor Nam. “It is my fault for not properly instructing my son. I feel devastated and responsible as a father.”

When he was asked by reporters why he cancelled his official business trip, he answered, “I thought it was important for me to perform my duties as a governor faithfully.”

He avoided giving direct answers by saying, “I don’t think it is time for me to speak of my political plans. I will be talking about that later on. For now, it is time to fulfill my duties as a father and a governor,” when he was asked whether he will be running for the upcoming local election.

I will be cancelling all my schedules and heading back on the earliest flight to Korea. I sincerely apologize,” while he was during his business trip in Germany.
