He also posted the link on his Instagram Stories as well. It is well-known among ASTRO’s fans that the song was Moonbin’s favourite and he had sung it on a broadcast.

Moonbin's death

After Moonbin's death his agency Fantagio Music had released a statement saying, "On April 19, ASTRO member Moon Bin unexpectedly left our world and became a star in the sky." It asked that people "refrain from speculative and malicious reports" so that his family can pay their respects and honour him in peace.

Moonbin's journey

Moon Bin, who performed as Moonbin, was a member of the group ASTRO and also performed with a sub-group called Moonbin & Sanha. He joined Fantagio's trainee programme at an early age and was an actor and child model before debuting with ASTRO in February 2016.

Prior to his passing, Moonbin and Sanha had been set to perform at the upcoming Dream Concert -- one of the largest K-pop joint concerts in South Korea -- in May. The group had also been in the middle of their Diffusion Fan Con Tour across Asia and had launched an official fan community page on Weverse.

The ASTRO group enjoys a massive fan following on social media with over 5 million followers on Instagram. ASTRO originally consisted of six members. Earlier this year, member Rocky's exit from the group was announced following the expiration of his contract with the agency. With Moonbin's death, it has only MJ, JinJin, Cha Eunwoo, and Sanha.
