On July 12, NUEST member Baekho, whose father recently passed away, uploaded a handwritten letter to the groups official fan cafe.
He wrote, Hello, this is Baekho. First of all, I want to thank all of you [for sending me your condolences]. I couldnt believe that something like this happened, and I didnt know what to do.
People around me tried to get me back on my feet, and many artists and employees from Pledis Entertainment traveled a long distance just to be with me. I was able to gain strength thanks to all the words of comfort that my fans have given me. I felt thankful and sorry.
Thanks to all of you, I was able to send my father away on his last path. I think he wouldve been really happy if he knew how much strength people had given me.
I have only received love from my fans. I think it would be difficult for one person to receive this much support in their life. I dont know how to pay back all this love. Thank you, and Im sorry these are the only words I can say right now.
