Memorial space for Moonbin to be prepared at Namsan Fortress National Cultural Heritage in South Korea

A space to commemorate the late Moonbin, a member of the group Astro, will be prepared at Namsan Fortress National Cultural Heritage in South Korea.

On the 4th, Astro’s agency, Fantagio, stated, “We deeply empathize with the sorrowful hearts of Arohas who want to cherish Moonbin for a longer time. As a result of careful consultation with the bereaved family, we have prepared an external memorial space.” They continued, “Although Moonbin did not practice Buddhism, at the request of the family, we have prepared a ‘Moon Space’ in a designated area within Namsan Fortress National Cultural Heritage. It will be operated from 5:30 am on June 7, 2023, with plans for long-term operation. We sincerely hope that it becomes a space where visitors can comfort their hearts, receive solace, and find peace.”


The agency also requested, “Please refrain from leaving food and flowers, except for letters and notes.” They explained, “The temple is located in the mountains, making it difficult to preserve items intact due to insects and foreign substances. We plan to install boards for attaching notes in the Moon Space and regularly collect and carefully preserve them. We would appreciate it if letters could be placed in the letterbox provided in the Moon Space.”

The memorial space for the late Moonbin, prepared by Fantagio on the rooftop sky park of their headquarters, will be open until midnight on the 6th and then closed. Letters and gifts placed in the memorial space will be collected and delivered to the family.


Moonbin passed away on April 19th at the age of 25. Astro members, including Moonbin’s younger sister, Moon Sua, as well as Cha Eunwoo, MJ, Jinjin, Yoon Sanha, former member Rocky, and many other colleagues in the entertainment industry, have visited the memorial space to express their longing for the late Moonbin.
