The news presenter prompted fury in both China and South Korea when he said that it's 'fortunate' if South Koreans look at it from their point of view.
The channel has since issued an apology to Chinese people through South Korea's Embassy in China.
The news channel's statement called the host's comment during a live broadcast 'wrong and rash'.
South Koreans too have criticised the gaffe online, saying they were shocked that a TV host could say such words.
