Taipei, Oct. 22 (CNA) Taiwanese bestselling writer and film director Giddens Ko admitted Wednesday that he has cheated on his girlfriend after he was photographed entering a motel with another woman.

"In the world of love I am not a good man. I am terrible," Ko said at a press conference after a local magazine published the pictures of him and the female, a local reporter, that day.

Ko said he had apologized to his girlfriend but had not been forgiven.

However, Ko, who is single, also expressed grievances, saying he felt awkward having to explain his private life to the public only because of having been followed by paparazzi.

Such embarrassment might be what he deserves because of his infidelity, he then said. "I feel painful and awful," he added.

The 36-year-old is best known for his novel "You Are the Apple of My Eye." In 2011, the namesake movie became a blockbuster in Taiwan and surpassed the 2004 Hong Kong film "Kung Fu Hustle" to become the highest-grossing Chinese-language movie in Hong Kong's history.
