He continued regarding BTOB, “I am the first member of our team to go. I am very thankful as the members cheered me on telling me to not get hurt and return healthily. They will work hard on BTOB team activities even when I’m not present. They said they will [work] so our concert can be held in an even larger venue, so I am very thankful. I hope they will also be healthy.”
Eunkwang then said to fans, “Thank you so much for supporting me until the day I leave. I read so many messages of support, and I was really touched,” and concluded, “I will return as a great man who is even more upgraded and can share good music with you. Thank you, and I love you. Always be healthy.
Eunkwang shared more of his thoughts through a letter on Instagram.
