"I hope that all the fans also find comfort and stay in good health. The reason that I ended up writing this letter is because, even though I know everyone is mourning and grieving for my son, I’ve seen that there have been groundless rumours starting in a small minority of online communities.

“These kinds of rumours are so difficult for me to see as a mother, and I am also worried that because of these false rumours, many people will suffer damages, and the fans who have been grieving for my son might suffer heartbreak. I don’t want my son to become fodder for gossip, and I entreat you to please not start any more rumours or spread unconfirmed facts. I don’t want the fans whom Bin loved so dearly to live on with broken hearts. I sincerely thank all of you for your heartfelt mourning,” it ended.

Moonbin's death

Moonbin's death continues to be a shock for the entire K-pop industry. Confirming his death, previously the agency had said via a statement, "On April 19, ASTRO member Moon Bin unexpectedly left our world and became a star in the sky." It also asked people to "refrain from speculative and malicious reports" so that his family can pay their respects and honour him in peace. A few weeks ago, a long-term memorial space was announced by the agency to honour Moonbin. It's situated at Gukcheongsa Temple.
