Jeffrey Tung apologises for blunders during hosting duties

10 Sep – "Idol Producer" alumnus Jeffrey Tung recently apologised for his hosting blunders at the red carpet of the 19th Chinese GQ Men of the Year Awards, which he blamed on his inexperience.

As reported on ET Today, netizens recently took to social media to list all of the awkwardness and mistakes the singer made at the event - including the lack of interview with Allen Deng, who was previously dating his current rumoured girlfriend Jin Chen; his tendency to make awkward comments to stars like Dong Li and Li Xian; and removing a sponsored product from an executive who was trying to promote it.

Jeffrey took to social media following the event to say his sorry, writing, "No matter how many times you rehearsed it before, it is not the same when you experience it on stage. Once again, I apologise to everybody for my shortcomings."

He also thanked the media and fans for their encouragement, and that he will gladly accept all comments and suggestions.

"I will continue to work hard," he added.

However, some netizens are still unsatisfied with the apology, saying that it was not inexperience that is the problem, but Jeffrey's own lack of research.
