Hyung, be happy.
Just 6 days prior to his passing, he posted a notice on his fanpage, telling fans he would be taking a break from streaming to focus on his health, as he had been in the hospital recently.
I’ve been in and out of the hospital due to lymphadenitis (infection of lymph nodes) for the past two days, but today I’ve also gotten severe body aches.
I hope it’s not Coronavirus.
I don’t even have strength to hold a mouse, so I am leaving a notice through mobile. It’s a very difficult time for everyone, so hang in there…!
