Justin Bieber - Justin Bieber Issues Apology To South Koreans For War Shrine Visit

Troubled pop star Justin Bieber has apologised to his South Korean fans after visiting a Japanese war shrine last month (Apr14).

The Baby hitmaker paid a visit to the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo, Japan, which honours the country's war dead, including leaders who committed mass atrocities throughout Asia during World War Ii.

The shrine is controversial across Asia and the singer received a backlash for his insensitivity when he posted a picture from the shrine. He swiftly removed the photo and issued an apology, concluding with the sentiment, "I love you China and I love you Japan".

The message has incensed South Korean fans, who believe they deserved an apology too, and Bieber has now addressed them in a new message on Twitter.com, writing, "found out that when i was in Japan I hurt my fans in Korea when visiting that shrine. That was never my intent. I love Korea. I'm sorry... I would never do anything to hurt my fans. I love all people. My heart goes out to the people of Korea at this time. love you... I understand the responsibility of my position. I love all people..."
