VIVIZ will not be attending some of the upcoming scheduled events during their U.S. visit, but despite the cancelation, fans have voiced concern for the members’ well-being.
On April 22, VIVIZ’s agency issued the following statement:
Earlier today in the morning, Moonbin’s funeral took place. It was held privately per the family’s wishes with no fans or journalists allowed to attend. The members of VIVIZ could not attend the funeral as they were seen departing the airport on April 21st for scheduled events.

The agency was criticized for pushing ahead with the schedule despite the current situation. SinB was unable to attend his funeral due to her schedules.
