Later the same day, Hyunwoong deleted that post and posted another photo, this time he thanked fans and apologized for worrying them,
“I’m so sorry for worrying you.
To be honest, I feel empty in my heart and that is so large every night, I think its grown a lot and gotten worse than I realized.
Reading each of your comments has been a great source of strength for me, and it made me realize that I really shouldn’t have had thoughts like this.
I won’t worry you again. I’ll show you a smiling Kim Hyun Woong. I’m so, so sorry for worrying you, and I’m so sorry to my family, friends, fellow members, and fans.”
Fans were glad to read his message and happy that disaster was averted, many are advocating for better treatment of idols and for people to stop harassing them online.
In related news, 14U disbanded back in May earlier this year, the agency stated that it was based on mutual agreement.
