When the news broke, Park Yoochun was on a plane headed to the States for a layover after a successful independent JYJ tour in South America and the news did not reach him until much later.
More recently, the Korean media reported photos of a tearful Yoochun dressed in sweats and slippers upon his arrival in Korea.
Upon hearing the news of the funeral service, his fellow JYJ members as well as CJES labelmate Song Ji Hyo did their part to offer condolences to Yoochun and the family.
Fellow group members Kim Jaejoong and Kim Junsu were the first to arrive at the funeral location in Seoul. Upon their arrival, they offered their deepest condolences to the family and paid their respect to his father.
Additionally, Kim Junsu’s twin brother and singer JUNO also attended the service dressed in a black suit, looking somber and grave.
Fellow label mate Song Ji Hyo was also present, offering her encouragement and condolences to Yoochun and paid her respects to his father.
The father of Park Yoochun & Park Yoohwan has reportedly passed away due to a chronic illness, and Park Yoohwan has currently cancelled all of his filming schedules for his new drama, ‘Strongest K-Pop Survival’.
We offer our deepest condolences to Park Yoochun, Park Yoohwan, and their entire family. May their father rest in peace.
