A’st1′s Sung In Kyu passes away at the age of 24 after fight with cancer
Sung In Kyu, former member of disbanded DSP Entertainment group A’st1, has passed away on the 22nd after his battle with cancer at the young age of 24.
The singer’s wake is currently being held at the funeral center of the Asan Hospital, where family and friends have gathered to pay their respects. Sung In Kyu previously revealed his diagnosis with thymus cancer through a touching letter to his fans back in 2011. Since then, he had been fighting his battle with the disease through continuous chemotherapy treatments.
Park Jung Jin bid farewell to his fellow member on his Twitter, writing “In Kyu, a dongseng who I promoted with as a member of A’st1 has passed away today. He must have had a difficult time undergoing chemotherapy but he always answered the phone with a cheerful voice, that was the kind of person In Kyu was. I hope he will be able to close his eyes in peace now in heaven.”
Sung In Kyu made his debut as a member of A’st1 back in 2008. The group promoted songs like “Dynamite” and also sang the OST song “Yearning of the Heart” for the hit drama ‘Boys Over Flowers‘.
May he rest in peace, and our hearts go out to all his loved ones.
