2AM's Jo Kwon responded to the controversy over his Twitter post regarding the passing of 2PM's Junsu's father.
When the news was announced on January 20th, Jo Kwon had tweeted,
"My heart breaks for Junsu hyung whom I have known for a long time. Everyone please pray for Junsu and his father."
Furthermore, he wrote,
"As time passes, we often experience times of hardship. As I have always felt before, I have once again learned to be thankful. Please enjoy a great Lunar New Years with your parents. And also, be thankful for this moment."
This second part was at the center of controversy for Hottests, who felt that Jo Kwon's tweet seemed insensitive towards Junsu and the death of Junsu's father.
On January 22nd, baffled by the controvery Jo Kwon posted,
"It has just come to my attention that my Tweet has become a controversy among fans. I have reread my post to see how it could have become misinterpreted by Hottests. The thankfulness I'm referring to in my tweet was written with those precious people in mind, who have always been there whenever hard situations like this arise."
How, and why, would I have put those words up with malicious intentions? I was suprised almost to the point of being scared by the harsh comments."
Ultimately, Jo Kwon has deleted all tweets regarding the passing of Junsu's father.
