Fantagio has confirmed the news of ASTRO’s Moonbin’s passing, which was previously announced by the police.

In the early hours of the morning on April 20, Fantagio released the following statement:

"This is Fantagio.

First, we apologize for having to convey this sorrowful and heartbreaking news.

On April 19, ASTRO member Moonbin suddenly left us and has now become a star in the sky.

Although it cannot compare to the grief of the bereaved family that had to part with their beloved son and brother, his fellow artists and the staff here at Fantagio, who have been together with him for a long time, are also deeply mourning the departed amidst tremendous shock and sorrow.

It pains us even more to have to convey this sudden news to the fans who have given their unsparing love and support to Moonbin. Because we know all too well just how unparalleled the departed [Moonbin] was in his love for his fans, whom he was constantly thinking of, the grief is all the more overwhelming.

In order for the bereaved family, who has fallen into great sorrow due to this sudden tragedy, to be able to respectfully mourn the departed and say their goodbyes, we entreat you to please refrain from speculative or malicious reports.

In accordance with the wishes of the bereaved family, the funeral will be held as quietly as possible, with family, close friends, and agency colleagues in attendance.

Once again, we express our deep mourning as the departed walks his final path".

  2. RIP Moonbin
    Mataas ang suicide rate among K Artists. Ano ba ang root cause? Too much pressure? Stress? It's so sad a lot of them died so young.

    1. 4:07 nasagot mo n girl ang question mo. Too much pressure and stress. Iadd pa ang depression. Nkakalungkot and awa tlga ang mga idols sa totoo lng. Super taas kasi tlga ang pressure sa knila. Not to mention pa na ang totoxic pa ng fans nila or ng netizens.

    2. Mataas talaga ang suicide rate sa SoKor. Lalo na sa mga k Artists, stress, pressure, yung ibang too much online hate. Medyo taboo topic pa sa Sokor ang mental health. Kaya halos hindi sila nag oopen up about their mental health.

      Delete
    3. I think it's probably the stress and pressure from in the industry they're in. I personally know someone who's suffering from depression and has suicidal thoughts because she is hardly given the spotlight in the local showbiz industry.

    4. Mataas ang rate kahit hindi kpop artist. Too much pressure ang kabataan dun na maging successful.

    5. Not a K-pop fan pero napansin ko nga in the past years , ang babata pa and mostly mga superstars, Sabi nga ng iba it’s lonely up there. Nasa iyo na ang lahat pero ano ang kapalit? Sabi nga sa lyrics ng BWN “'Pag ito ay nakamtan mo na
      Bakit may kulang pa?” Fame and money aren’t everything.

    6. Depression. May shelf life ang pagiging kpop idol. Dapat may Plan B and C ka.

      Delete
    7. Peer pressure, the fans, their own government demand them be squeaky clean, one small mistake and you are done being their idol. Parang you are walking on egg shells kaya yon iba sa depression talaga mapunta. And some of them thought that offing their self is the only solution, its quite sad.

      Delete
    8. Pressure from their family as well, parang cycle n yan eh. Ung mga students jan umaattend p ng cram schools until late at night, parents expect so much from them.

    9. 5:36 kung maka confirm naman kpop artist ka? im sure may buhay yan outside their careers.

    10. 12:12 beh, matagal na pong know ang pressure and stress sa kpop industry. Lalo n kung fan ka n during 2nd generation. Sadyang nagbubulag bulagan ang iba and lalo n ang Sokor about this case. So u dont need to be kpop idol ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿฅด

      Delete
    11. 12:12 ang daming documentaries about kpop industry te,hindi sa nagmamagaling pero totoo naman yung karamihan nga dyan hindi na nakikita yung pamilya sa sobrang hectic ng schedule, grabe pa yung bullying. yang mga yan yung literal na na BOX ng entertainment industry hindi eme emeng na box daw yun pala rebranding lang ang gusto.

      Delete
    12. 12.12 may basehan naman sinabi ni 5.36. it’s the same with Sulli. hindi lang naman K artists. kahit Youtubers sa kanila may nag.suicide dhl sa sobrang bashing ng K netz. mahirap ang competition sa korea!

      Delete
    13. Di lang artists. Sokor has one of the highest suicide rates in the world. Pressure din sa studies and work.

      Delete
    14. 12:12 Kung maka sure ka dyan girl akala mo nman alam na alam mo and yet here you are disregarding the real facts. Majority of them ay walang tlagang buhay outside of their career. Kulong tlga sila sa isang box and maraming evidences and documentaries proves na depression, stress, pressure, and toxicity kills them (like 3:43 said).

  3. Grabe ang dami ng nag suicide na kpop idol pang apat na to

    1. Bata pa kasi sila pag nag aaudition. Walang muwang and akala nila super cool maging idol. Pag nag mature na ayun, realization hits you. Grabe ang life nila, under scrutiny 24/7.

  16. Korean entertainment industry has to do something. Kulang kse tlg sla ng advocates of mental health given na taboo prn sya. They focus much more on setting unrealistic standards lalo n ung mga idols they always strive to look "perfect" kya konting mishaps lng halos isumpa n sla ng Knetz.

  18. SK has a high suicide rate hindi lang sa Kpop artists. If you look at data madaming students nagcommit ng suicide because of the pressure/stress. Although this is heartbreaking especially at a young age when there’s so much ahead of you. But we don’t know the real reason or how much he has suffered. May he RIP. As a Kpop fan, my heart is broken. ๐Ÿ˜”

  19. Grabe din naman kasi ang competition at pressure sa Korean entertainment. It's a huge business.They start young and train for years, have a few years of fame, and the only way you can sustain being in the limelight is to transition into acting which only a few of them get to do. Sa Astro si Cha Eun Woo ang super sikat and I think wala masyado activity ang group nila. Plus yung mga high expectations pa ng pamilya nila.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sobrang expected to be always perfect at napakataas ng standards nila sa entertainment industry kapag hindi nameet, depression bagsak. Parang end of the world na agad if not successful

    ReplyDelete
  21. For me I don’t think it’s suicide naman. Over fatigue siya at na affect na heart niya Alam mo yun sobrang pagod? Or Pwede din na go got kasi Wala siya iniwan na note e. Usually diba nag Iiwan sila ng letter. He wasn’t feeling well daw when he was in Bangkok sa sakay na daw plane pauwi bigla daw nahirapan huminga.

    4. I believe this. May upcoming concert sila ni Sanha sa Busan, d sya nakasipot sa rehearsal kaya pinuntahan ng manager. Na admit na din sya sa hospi due to over fatigue and stress.

    5. He was on hiatus for a few years due to “illness” So maybe he had health issues noon pa.

    6. Sabi ng cops “posible” suicide . Wag mo sasabihin sa akin mas marunong ka pa sa pulis. Opinion ko ito. Besides lets wait for Final
      Investigation and sabi ng company stop mga investigation sila nga hinde nila masabi If suicide e.

    8. 9:54 teh for 3 months lang yun kaloka yun few years. from nov 2019 to feb 2020 lang yun.

      & to the one naman na nagsabi concert sa busan, no, they were s'posed to have concert sa macau on 22nd, sat.

      San nyo ba napupuklot yun info nyo kaloka.

      & may point naman si OP dahil wala pa naman official statement. It could be physical illness since sa last bkk con nila nagkasakit sya, na hold nga yun flight nya pero since negative sya sa covid na push through pa rin, pero you can tell na masama talaga pakiramdam nya the whole concert. Then a week lang pahinga may concert ulit sa macau dapat, in between break nun malamang everyday rehearsal pa yan sila.

  22. Hindi lang sa kpop industry sa buong Korea actually.grabe Kasi pressure sa kabila.in terms of studies social status beauty standard bullying. Maganda lang sa kdrama Ang Korean culture pero in reality

  23. This is so shocking because Moon Bin always smiles. He looks so happy every time I see his videos. I see some particular kpop stars whom sadness can be seen in their eyes but I’ve never seen that in him. Gosh. May he rest in peace.

  24. OMG! Moonbin! Why?!

    So sad! I thought he will just rest cause I believe I read somewhere that he is ill. For sure sad and Astro especially Eun-woo cause they are so close!!! Waaaahhhhh!

  25. hindi masyado sikat ang group nila, si cha eun woo lang bumubuhat sa pangalan ng grupo. paano pa kaya yung nagtrain ng ilang taon pero hindi naka debut

  26. South Korea's society is problematic as a whole. Yung education na lang nila eh.. after 10hrs sa school, may special classes pa sila.. halos 12mn na nakkauwi yung mga bata, may assignment pa.
    Lakas ng pressure sa kanila.

    Kaya mahal ko Pilipinas kahit maraming sira ulo dito eh,, sobarang forgiving ng society natin.

    1. I agree. Marami rin sa nagsu***de sa knila ay matatnda na ayaw maging pa bigat sa anak nila. Kasi alam nila success hinahabol ng anak so pabigat ba sila at gastusin. Pangit ang culture na success pera ang habol. Satin mas ok oero sumobra kahit palamunin ok lang

  28. Madami dahilan kung bakit ang ibang kpop idols dumadaan sa depression gaya ng pressure, bashing, no freedom gawin ang gusto nila, na-eexploit din sila sexually at iba pa.

  31. I can still remember how Shinee members were crying when Jonghyun was laid to rest. Tapos today si Moonbin naman. I can’t imagine the pain.

  32. Hello! Please let us not speculate wala pa po kasing nilalabas officially about sa cause of death nya. At the last concert po nila sa bkk, nagkasakit sya pero he was tested negqtive sa covid kaya nag push thru naman yun concert. Nag sunod-sunod rin kc yung sched nya since fancon d2 sa manila last march 25. So until wala po lumalabasna official statement, ket us not conclude anything

    ReplyDelete
  33. They have a supposed concert in Macau last April 22, but he died on the 19th. & marami pang naka line up na concert leg til june sa asia & latin america leg. He even endorsed many labels like samsung taiwan, clinique kr recently. Ok rin yun fam nila, i mean when it comes to support system maraming nagmamahal sa kanya. So i don't think he really did end his own life
