ATEEZ‘s San‘s grandfather has passed away.
On Friday, May 28, KQ Entertainment announced that the idol’s grandfather had passed, though the cause of his passing hasn’t been stated.
It’s well-known among ATEEZ fans that San spent more time with his grandparents than his own parents while he was growing up, and he had a very close relationship with his grandfather.
To give San time to travel to his hometown Namhae and be with his family during this difficult time, he will be absent from the online ATEEZ fan signing scheduled for this Sunday, May 30.
The “MAP THE EXTRAORDINAIRE ATEEZ WITH PERRIER” event that was planned for the same day will also be postponed to a later date.
