Jin Ha, who plays the grandson Solomon in the recently released Apple TV+ series Pachinko, on Saturday (March 26) released an apology statement - both in English and Korean - for posting inappropriate photos on his Tumblr account, including surreptitiously taken images of older Korean women.

The apology came after online criticism of the actor for posting over 90 “creep shots” of the women that were taken in public without permission on his “Korean Flowers in Bloom” account on the US-based microblogging website from July 2010 to September 2011.
