SEATTLE (AP) -- The sister of a man imprisoned in North Korea welcomed an apology from Dennis Rodman after his comments suggesting the man may have deserved his arrest.

Rodman traveled to North Korea to celebrate the birthday of leader Kim Jong Un.

Terri Chung of Edmonds, Wash., said Thursday it's good to see Rodman recognize the gravity and urgency of Kenneth Bae's plight. She says, "It's nothing he can make light or play games with."

She's still worried about the fallout from his comments made on CNN that Bae may have deserved his arrest 14 months ago while leading a tour.

Chung wants everyone to know how precarious his situation is. Rodman said he had a stressful day, had been drinking and shouldn't make political comments.
