I have something to tell everyone today, so I am sharing this letter after a lot of thought.


I have promised to marry the person I love, and I will become a father in September. I am happy to be welcoming a new member to my family, but I am more sorry to my fans who will feel confused due to my sudden news.


I should have told you about this sooner, but I am sorry for the delay in sharing this news as I was very worried about this.


I feel a heavy sense of responsibility because I feel like I'm putting a lot of pressure on the people who have always helped me and supported me with all of their hearts.


I sincerely apologize to those who have been hurt or feel very confused by this.


To my iKON members, fans, and parents, the people who have become necessities in my life even though I am lacking, I will strive to become a person who will not bring shame to my fans or my parents.


I will also do my best to not become a distraction to our fans and the iKON members who are waiting for iKON's activities."

1. I’m not even a fan, but I’m shocked… Where is his conscience?ㅋㅋㅋ

2. I congratulate you on getting married, but I hate you because you cheated on your fans

3. It’s not a matter of getting married or having a baby, it’s about him informing us a month before the baby is born

4. I guess a lot of fans will leave the fandom

5. It’s like EXO’s Chen 2.0

6. Oh my God… I kept thinking he was trying to do well when I watched him on Kingdom, but what’s going on..??

7. Seriously… what about the fans?

8. I feel the most sorry for the fans who respect, support and wait for their comeback

9. Only the fans are pitiful

10. I’m so shocked, how old is Bobby????


Reminder, you may know your idol birthday, favourite colour, food, etc.. you may know their story. But you never know about their personal life. You only know what they want you to know. And they are human; they have all the right to go on a date, be in a relationship and have their own family. You don't own them. Unlike western pop, where to celebrate can speak freely about their love life, Korean society doesn't allow idols to do so. Idols will receive a lot of hate, and it might be the end of their career, so don't be surprised if your idol suddenly announces he will get married or have a baby.
