“We lost a bright light, who was genuinely contributing to his family’s, friends’, and fans’ life, and that bright light is gone,” said CedarBough Saeji, assistant professor of Korean and East Asian Studies at Pusan National University.

Saeji, a self-described Moon Bin supporter, said that while there was talk about the strains of Korean culture and the country’s celebrity industry, it was also necessary to recall the young star’s successes.

“Moonbin was a dancer and singer with extraordinary talent. He had recently started to write some of the content for Astro as well. Also, he had been appearing in a number of well-liked web dramas. If he had persisted in his profession and developed more as a performer, there is absolutely no telling how far he may have gone, Saeji stated.
