'Hello, this is Baekho(Dong-ho's nickname).
First of all, I would like to say thank you.
I never dreamt of this to happen, so I didn't know what to do or believe whether it was real.
What helped me up at that moment were the people who loved me, and the careful thoughts from all the fans.
There were many people who came the distance and stayed by my side, including PLEDIS Entertainment's employees and fellow artists.
Also, I was able to gain strength from all the love and support that fans sent me. I was so grateful yet sorry.
Thanks to you, I was able to say goodbye to my father on his last journey.
If my father knew how many people were giving me strength, he would have been very happy.
I only received your unbelievable love and not gave back to you guys.
I received trust and utmost comfort that one could not ask for his lifetime.
I don't know how to give it all back. Thank you.
And I'm sorry that this is all I can say for now. I will be back soon.'(Credit= 'realbaekho' Instagram, NU'EST Daum Fan Cafe)
