TWICE flew to Bangkok, Thailand in June 13 for the second leg of their World Tour. Fans noticed that one member,Jeongyeon, did not join the group and wondered why she booked a flight the next day instead.
Jeongyeon's sister, actress Gong Seungyeon, shared on Instagram that their 8-year old pomeranian passed away which answered fans' questions about Jeongyeon's absence.
English translation (by prettyrapstar23):
"Our beloved Bbosong went to heaven on June 13th.
Thank you very much to everyone who supported and prayed for Bbosong.
She's been sick for a year...
For all those times you held on, thank you and sorry...
I hope you're not hurting there anymore.
Thank you for coming to our family because of you we were happy.
We will never forget our Bbosong for the rest of our lives.
I love you. Let's meet again."
TWICE members and ONCE know how precious Bbosong is to Jeongyeon. When her dear pet started getting hospitalized last year, there were few instances when Jeongyeon was seen crying during group's official schedule. The members comforted her and visited Bbosong too at the animal hospital.
During their concert at Bangkok on June 15, Jeongyeon broke down when they performed their ballad song "After Moon". She couldn't hold up her tears and could barely sing her parts.

As the concert went on, Jeongyeon was able to compose herself as Thai fans chant her name loudly and the members cheer her up.
