“My father was suffering from a long-term illness and few months ago, he was rushed to the hospital when it suddenly worsened. Upon hearing the news, I immediately flew from New York to Korea to visit my father, and it so happened that other members were to return to Korea after a week in order to attend an event set up in Korea. I watched after my father for a week and thankfully he got better, so after consulting his doctor I was able to attend the scheduled event. He had the illness for almost 20 years, and it wasn’t something that could be dealt with immediately, so after seeing that he got better, I could settle my mind and return to performing.”
