South Korean actor Choi Philip apologized for his offensive words toward a TV program that spotted “entertainment soldiers” coming out from a local massage parlor. Choi said it was a “slip of the tongue.”

Choi tweeted Wednesday that he “uploaded thoughtless words last night before watching the program and is sorry for all the inconvenience caused.” The 33-year-old actor explained that he misunderstood the purpose of the program, thinking it was to disclose the private life of celebrities.

According to “Hyeonjang 21 (On the Spot 21),” an investigative TV program on SBS, two celebrity soldiers were busted last Saturday at a massage parlor in Chuncheon, Gangwon Province. Massage parlors in Korea are viewed as seedy, since many of them offer sexual services.

Shortly after the program was broadcasted on Tuesday, Choi wrote on Twitter: “What the hell is Hyeonjang 21 doing? Why are they trying so hard to disclose privacy? F-----s.” The message has been removed from his account.
