Last year, Jung Yong Hwa was suspected for insider trading when he acquired 400 million won (approximately $347,000) worth of FNC stocks, with which he made a profit of 200 million won (approximately $173,400) when FNC recruited a major celebrity shortly afterwards. After undergoing a prosecution inquiry, Jung Yong Hwa was acquitted of charges.

On Life Bar, Jung Yong Hwa said, I am so sorry to the people around me, and am particularly sorry to my mother.

Jung Yong Hwa, who left for Paris soon after the incident to film a drama, continued, Im so grateful for those who believed in my innocence and allowed me to continue on with my work. I know people might see this as a bad thing, but during that time I just stayed at home to avoid facing the issue. I just hated the fact that I was mixed up in all of this.  I threw myself into my work, so I didnt have any friends at the time.

Jung Yong Hwa finished by stating, As these shocking events were unfolding, I felt so sorry and thankful towards the fans and people around me who believed in me. I have realized that there are many times I have forgotten to be grateful and have needlessly gotten annoyed at my busy schedule. However, because of these events, I have found myself to be truly thankful again.
