His father had unfortunately passed away on July 4, and the idol had rushed down to Jeju Island, his hometown. On July 11, he uploaded a handwritten letter to NU'EST's fancafe, thanking his fans for all the support.
"Hello, this is Baekho.
I want to first say thank you. When something that I couldn't even dream of happened, I didn't know what to do and I didn't know if it was real. The people who helped me up at that moment were all the people who loved me, and the thoughts of all the fans.
There were many people who came the distance, such as Pledis Entertainment's many employees and artists, to stay by my side. I was also able to gain strength from all the love that fans sent me carefully, and I was so grateful and sorry.
Thanks to you, I was able to send my father on his last journey. If my father knew so many people were giving me strength, he would have been very happy.
I have only received from my fans. I have received love that I can't believe. I have received trust and condolences that most people can't receive in one lifetime. I don't know how to give it all back. Thank you.
I'm sorry that this is all I can say right now. I will be back soon."
We wish the best to Baekho and his family once again.
