His agency, Fantagio, expressed deep condolences and sorrow, saying, "We cannot compare our sadness and shock to the grief of Moonbin's loving family and siblings who have lost him, but Astro members, our Fantagio artists and staff, who have been with him for a long time, are deeply mourning for him."

As he always loved and cared for his fans more than anyone, it is even more heartbreaking for us."
