BUSAN, April 23 (Yonhap) -- The mayor of Busan, South Korea's largest port city, on Thursday offered to resign and apologized for sexual harrassment.

"In a short meeting that lasted five minutes, there was unnecessary physical contact with a person. I bow my head to apologize," the city's mayor Oh Keo-don said in a press briefing.

"As a public servant who takes responsibility, I will live my remaining life repenting and taking responsibility for this mistake. I'm at fault for everything," Oh said as he cried.

Oh was elected as the city's mayor in the 2018 gubernatorial elections.
