The pair have been close since starring on the variety show together. Unfortunately, Jung Joon Young was unable to find out about Kim Joo Hyuk’s passing in time to attend his wake and funeral.
He wrote, “Our hyung, I greeted him yesterday early in the morning. Please rest in peace Joo Hyuk hyung whom I love. I still can’t believe it, but I will try to live thinking of you as always smiling and watching over us. Thank you and I love you so much. There is so much that I want to say but I will tell you when I go visit you in person again. I miss you hyung.”
Meanwhile, “2 Days & 1 Night” recently aired a special “in memoriam” episode in honor of Kim Joo Hyuk. The cast members recorded final goodbye messages to their beloved member.
