On July 31, Lee Tae Gon appeared on JTBCs Please Take Care of My Refrigerator, where he opened up about his experience being investigated for assault.
MC Kim Sung Joo brought up the incident, asking, This is a sensitive question, but how did you survive during that time?
Lee Tae Gon responded, I think I pushed through by mental willpower, for the sake of my future. This was the first time I regretted being a celebrity. I was so stressed and angry, and I didnt have any way to release these emotions.
