JYJ’s Yoochun and his brother, actor, Yoohwan
It was indeed a sad homecoming for JYJ member Park Yoochun after making a history as the first KPOP group to perform in Chile and Peru when he heard that his father passed away during their layover in LA en route to their flight back to Korea on March 14 due to chronic illness.
I felt very sad seeing his teary airport photos that day and I texted my friend(Jhing) who is a certified JYJ(Cass) fan, with YC as her bias and talked about the news. She of course felt much worse than me and I told her that this would make the bond of JYJ members much more stronger. I just couldn’t upload those sad pictures of him.
Come to think about it, YC’s father did wait for their tour to finish and died after when they were on their way back. He must be very proud of his son and he will always be watching him up there.
With this, I was really expecting that my bias Kim Hyun Joong would pay his respects to Yoochun’s father since JYJ are one of his closest friends in the industry(he has a few that considers). I read that he did attend the funeral and had been looking photos of that. Last night, somebody had uploaded a video of him that shows him going into the elevator to go up the funeral hall with his bodyguard, Mr. Jeong. Here is a GIF of that video.
Several celebrities visited the funeral hall to condole with Yoochun and his family but due to media restrictions only a few were named.
