Kai Ko was placed under administrative detention for 14 days under the suspicion of drug use in Beijing.
A couple of days ago, after his relase, he immediately held a press conference to apologise with his parents and manager Angie Chai. He was seen bursting into tears when apologising during this press conference.
According to an article in Hktopten, yesterday afternoon, he held another press conference in Taipei, but this time his parents did not accompany him. Only his manager did.
He again publicly apologized over the incident and said that he has set a wrong example. He frequently repeated: "I am very sorry". However, he did not cry this time round.
When asked about his current relationship with Jaycee Chan (Fong Cho Ming), Kai Ko said Cho Ming was a very kind person. He has always taken care of him.
He said, "He has also given me a lot of positive energy. Perhaps we both have made mistakes, but I believe he is a good person."
He even said that they would still be good friends after reforming.
As for disappointing his fans, he said that now he has not thought about wanting people to like Ko Chen-Tung. He only wanted to make himself better and better.
He said, "I beg them not to follow from my negative behavior. I hope to deliver a positive message. I am very sorry."
Speaking of his drug addiction of over two years, he stressed that he first came in contact with drugs two years ago.
He stressed that at the time he did not face any pressure or have any negative emotions, it was just a stupid choice.
Aside from his Beijing and Taipei apology press conferences, Kai Ko also conducted an online apology session on Weibo, Facebook and IG.
The Weibo reaction was the most enthusiastic. Although he only wrote, "Sorry everyone, I definitely will be even better", over 400 million people have posted messages. Most were of encouraging words.
