Beast member’s father passes away
“It was unexpected, and Jang is devastated,” a spokesperson from the agency said.
Jang was accompanied by his mother and younger sister as friends and family paid their visits.
The funeral service is set to take place today in Namyang, Gyeonggi.
Jang made his debut with Beast in 2009 with the EP “Beast is the B2ST.”
Last year he rose to prominence by forming a sub-unit duo with Hyun-a from 4Minute. The two called themselves Trouble Maker and released a single by the same name.
The EP was a hit and the performance by the two idol group members was regarded as one of the hottest of the year with the two enacting steamy exchanges on stage.
Last month, before the release of “Midnight Sun,” the group staged a fan meet in Tokyo.
