I express my sincere condolences to the family of the deceased. As a member of a family raising a dog, I feel a great sense of responsibility. I should have maintained close supervision at all times, but my carelessness led to a horrible incident and I am reflecting deeply. I will make sure this does not happen again. I apologize for causing trouble. May he rest in peace.”

However, we have decided to forgive them because we were close neighbors and the opposite would not bring my sister back. My sister’s son wants to mourn his death peacefully. We do not plan to take legal action against Choi Siwon’s family. We do not want to be compensated. My sister’s son is around the same age as Choi Siwon. They are both young.
