Singer Byul’s father, Kim Ho Sang, passed away earlier this morning at Yonsei University’s Severance Hospital in Seoul. Kim suffered a medical accident which paralyzed his entire body in 2002. His passing comes several weeks before Byul and Haha’s November wedding. 

According to Byul’s agency, Byul and Haha are already a legal couple, having signed and submitted their marriage registration last month. As such, it’s been reported that Haha will stay by Byul’s side as chief mourner throughout the wake and funeral. A representative of Haha’s agency confirmed, Haha will fulfill all his responsibilities as the chief mourner until the funeral on the 17th.” 

Meanwhile, Haha and Byul will tie the knot on November 30 at a wedding hall in Seoul. 

We offer our deepest condolences to Byul and her family.
