Hi, this is Siwon Choi.

I wish to express explicitly that I have no involvement with regard to the controversy surrounding the Korea Youth Committee’s Youth Pay. Furthermore, I have never been appointed as an ambassador for the Korea Youth Committee’s Youth Pay. While I have received an award at a ceremony organized by the Korea Youth Committee, this was in recognition of setting a good example for the youth, as intended by the committee, and is unrelated to the current controversy.

I want to make it clear that I have had no involvement in the Korea Youth Committee’s Youth Pay or any individual’s political activities.

Among those implicated were Ra Seon-wook, Kim Won-hoon, Cho Jin-se, and Oh King. Suspicion also lingered over Lee Cheon-soo’s potential involvement, casting a shadow on the credibility of the platform.
