Having talked over the phone the day before, TVXQ Hero JaeJoong in shock over sudden death of close friend Park YongHa

With the sudden news of Hallyu star Park YongHa’s death on 30th June, Dong Bang SHin Ki member Hero JaeJoong is amongst the stars who are in shock of the news.

Amidst news that Park YongHa was found, hung, in his apartment on 30th June, it was revealed that Hero JaeJoong was one of the people he spoke to before he hung himself. According to Hero JaeJoong, who is now in the States doing recording for a worldwide album, they had conversation like how they did usually. JaeJoong even told him, “When I returned to Korea, let’s go for a drink.”

Hero JaeJoong’s representative told the media, “He was of course shocked at the news of Park YongHa’s passing. Park YongHa is a friend whom JaeJoong would meet often in Korea and Japan.”

It is known that things have been hard for Park YongHa recently after the health conditions of his father, who is down with cancer, worsened. The funeral for Park YongHa is currently being held in a hospital in Seoul.


Another news source quotes:

Jaejoong said, “I really want to visit the room where Park Yong-ha coffin is placed now, what should I do. How could this happen to him.” he stopped as he’s burst in tears. “Yesterday (the 29th) we’re talking on the phone. We’re supposed to meet when I return to South Korea…”

A representative of Jaejoong said, “The relationship between Park Yong-ha and Jaejoong was more than just a close relationship. They tell each other everything. When Jaejoong heard about this sad news in America, he’s totally clueless and was bitter to know nothing about the incidence. The most heartbreaking thing is that he will have to stay in United States and won’t be able to visit Park Yong-ha’s coffin.”

Since Jaejoong and Park Yong-ha both pursue activities in Japan, they have established a close relationship. Staying in a foreign country, they started to share thoughts and opinions which then built close friendship between them for years.

    WHAT ?

    • I know you cassies should be anticipating JaeJoong’s album, but shouldn’t you be tactful and not asking about his album here (though it’s mentioned mildly in the above news) for this entire report is concentrating on Park YongHa’s death?
      JaeJoong definitely wants support for his upcoming album, but certainly not on a post about his dead friend. Please be tactful. Thank you.
