1. [+594, -15] Why haven't we fixed the laws on allowing Koreans living abroad to come back to the country for medical treatments? Is it because all of the children of major politicians live abroad too?

2. [+481, -7] The reason she's apologizing after 6 months: YouTube demonetizes your channel if you don't have channel activity for six months so she's coming back because she's out of money

3. [+208, -6] I'm disgusted with Koreans living abroad only coming back to use our medical system for their own gain. Too many thieves of our taxes!!! Let's please vote in the right people to fix these things next year. And goodbye to all these beggar YouTubers.

4. [+191, -7] So she was talking all that talk about contributing to health insurance when she never did? She lies every time she opens her mouth. She benefitted from our medical system without paying a cent for it.

5. [+51, -5] She's only apologizing now that her Englishman husband is basically unemployed ㅋㅋ but now that the UK is getting vaccinated and restrictions are easing, she'll get to create content over there and piss the rest of the Koreans off even more

6. [+44, -0] YouTube stops your income after six months of inactivity so she's only coming back now. How can her apology be taken as genuine after knowing that? The public isn't foolish enough to believe it...

7. [+43, -1] How unbelievable that she timed her apology to the six month limit placed on YouTube accounts!

8. [+31, -0] Even if she paid all of the health insurance contributions that she's behind on, the government will have spent wa~~~~~~y more money on her to treat her endometriosis ㅋㅋㅋ she basically got all her treatments and ran back to the UK again

9. [+27, -0] All this beating around the bush when all she needs to do is admit that she came to Korea for cheaper treatments

10. [+23, -0] I knew she'd release a video after six months ㅋ YouTube stops your income if you don't upload anything for six months ㅋㅋ

1. [+1,000] When they first came to Korea for treatments, it was when the UK was suffering spiking cases and under lockdown while Korea was seeing a decline with normalcy still in place... A lot of people chose to turn a blind eye to the couple making YouTube videos here while taking benefit of our healthcare system, and it wasn't until they broke the rules during their birthday party that people started speaking up, only for the couple to blame the local health center, threaten with lawsuits... Well, now that they're all treated in Korea, they're back in the UK now and will be getting their vaccine. They took a six month break and both of them are back with YouTube updates. I do admit that they received more criticism than they deserved but they also have done a lot of disgraceful things as well.

2. [+143] It's okay for people to misunderstand things and make mistakes. However, when faced with the correction and criticism of those mistakes, you should've listened. Instead, you treated everyone like hate commenters and threatened them with lawsuits. Honestly, if you were truly reflective of your mistakes, I feel like you would've put out your apology in the beginning of this controversy. This feels... off ㅋㅋ..

3. [+86] Wow, it really does take six months for apology videos. I expect Englishman to put his own up in a few days too ㅋㅋ

4. [+1,300] Why are foreigners saying it's okay on behalf of the Koreans who were the ones paying the taxes for it ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+151] How are foreigners so clueless?

6. [+90] The magic of six months. I like how she ignored everything and stayed silent on the differences of her Korean and English apologies and the national health insurance issue.

7. [+300] Who are these foreigners accepting her apology on our behalf? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

8. [+419] I do feel bad for you but I don't think I can go back to liking you as much as I did before

9. [+210] So no feedback at all on why there were differences between their Korean and English clarifications ㅋ and Josh made all those lawsuit threats which only angered the public even further only for them to admit that it was their mistake in the end

10. [+97] I really don't understand at all why the foreigners are always like "oh my sweet little baby" whenever someone apologizes. Gabie is not some 3 year old child. She's a married adult who broke the law and lied to her channel subscribers, even threatening them with lawsuits, only for it to be found out that she was in the wrong all this time. I notice a lot of foreigners claiming that Koreans are too harsh on public figures who make mistakes and blaming us for being little minded people, as if they're the bigger person for choosing to accept these apologies. These comments are borderline racist against Koreans. How do you expect us Koreans to not be angry when their apologies were written differently in Korean and English and they still choose not to clarify why that was? These foreigners speak so easily because this doesn't affect them. It's not even any of their business but they keep acting like they feel soo bad for her and that they need to accept her apology on our behalf.

11. [+316] I make less than 2 million won a month... it's very difficult for me to pay all my health insurance taxes for you...

12. [+185]
The person apologizing: Korean
The people accepting the apology: Foreigners
The people who paid the taxes: Korean
The people who didn't pay the taxes: Foreigners
Is this a comedy? ㅋㅋ How hilarious 🤣

13. [+571] Six months ㅋㅋ like clockwork, really

14. [+544] It's scary how they all come back right at the six month mark

15. [+325] It really pisses me off seeing foreigners accept this apology when they have no business accepting it on our behalf ㅋㅋ
