Reports state that Yohan passed away on the 16th of June. News of his passing reached media outlets a day later. His family is in a state of shock, and has requested privacy in these difficult times. A statement from Yohan’s agency, KJ Music Entertainment, reads: “The family has pleaded that media articles about Yohan’s passing, such as those making speculations about the cause of his death, be refrained out of respect.”

Yohan, who turned 28 in April, debuted with his group, TST, on January 4th, 2017. The boy group, consisting of members: Yonghyeon, Wooyoung, Ain, Junghoon, and ‘K’, released their latest single, ‘Count Down‘ back in January, 2020.

There has been no official comment regarding the cause of his death. Fans of the group, too, are in mourning. They are joined by the rest of the K-Pop fandom collective, as fans are refraining from trending any information pertaining to their groups out of respect to Yohan and his family.

We at IndigoMusic.com convey our deepest condolences to his family and loved ones. May you rest in peace, Yohan.
