After episode 2 of the TV series Penthouse 3 was premiered on June 11. Many international netizens have harshly criticized, they think that the character Alex – Logan Lee’s brother (park eun seok) is portrayed as racist, cultural appropriation.
Soon after, on June 12, the actor posted the following sentence in English on his TikTok account to officially apologize. The following content:
“Regarding the drama “The Penthouse” character Alex, I’d like to let everyone know that none of the appearances that were driven by the character were falsely intentional to harm, mock, disrespect, or discourage the African-American community. I’ d like to apologize to the people who took offense by the character’s appearance.It was more admiration of the culture than mockery, but now I’m aware that the approach was more CA [cultural appropriation]. .
Again, I’d like to apologize to those who took offense; I as a minority myself should’ve known better. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to grow in awareness.
I hope you have the sincere in your hearts to give the benefit of the doubt, that Alex’s appearance was rather a character approach who admired the culture and wanted to “be” like, not reluctantly portraying mockery.”
After the post, many viewers expressed their sympathy with Park Eun Seok, and asked the director or NSX Penthouse to officially speak about this serious issue.
