Below is Onew’s full text:
“I have a goal.
For other companies as well, I hope for trainees, people preparing to debut, and even the celebrities, to all be healthy. I want to do a type of community service that is mentally and physically healthy, so I am now registered as a board member (of a yoga group).
I have talked about (yoga), saying it is healing for me, and I’ve always wanted to show it. My colleagues who have gone to the sky and their families, I hope such incidents will not happen again
As I am personally doing this kind of work, I might be misunderstood, receive criticisms, or get uneasy. However, I hope that you can believe in me even a little bit.
I’m also uncertain and apologetic for being like this, but I just hope everyone will be happy. It’s enough for you to understand my intention, even though I’m showing a selfish side by asking you to do so.
I’m sorry, and thank you.”
