On July 12, NU’EST member Baekho, whose father recently passed away, uploaded a handwritten letter to the group’s official fan cafe.
He wrote, “Hello, this is Baekho. First of all, I want to thank all of you [for sending me your condolences]. I couldn’t believe that something like this happened, and I didn’t know what to do.
“People around me tried to get me back on my feet, and many artists and employees from Pledis Entertainment traveled a long distance just to be with me. I was able to gain strength from all the words of comfort that my fans have given me. I felt thankful and sorry.
“Thanks to all of you, I was able to send my father away on his last path. I think he would’ve been really happy if he knew how much strength people had given me.
“I’ve only been receiving from my fans. I think it would be quite rare for one person to receive this much love and support in their lifetime. I don’t know how to pay back all this love. Thank you, and I’m sorry these are the only words I can say right now.
“I will see you all soon.”
