Earlier today, Aoora came out and formally apologized for their behavior on twitter. Aoora tweeted in English,

AA apologize for what we did in KBS music bank yesterday. We were immature and senseless being such a big stage with all senior artists… we’ve respected for all times… Especially, we AA bow our head in apology to 현우 선배님 (Hyun Woo sunbae) who have been greatest MC in Music Bank for a long time… AA regret and reflect for what we did and promise that we will show you decent behavior… AA will do our best not to disappoint somebody who have cared for us.”

Aoora sat down with Newsen to discuss his past and the road he’s taken to follow his dream.“In high school, I was a model student and the president of my class. We weren’t well off so I studied even harder for my parents. However, I really wanted to do music,” he said.

He continued, “The school I went to had a system where if you don’t attend for 3 days in a row, you are automatically unenrolled from the school. I thought to myself that I have to take the road I want, and ripped up my school uniforms and stopped attending school. My teacher tried to persuade me and gave me 2 months to make my decision. However, in the end, I was unenrolled. I wanted to focus on my musical studies.”

Aoora’s affection for his parents were revealed when he stated, “It was then that I wanted to start helping out our household financially. I wanted to become a [music] producer in the future, so I started taking up part time jobs in the field of video-editing or music. My family is very supportive of me now. My mother was still upset about me dropping out of high school, so I took the GED and got into college.”
