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.
