IU gave a heartwarming speech dedicated to Jonghyun as she won the Digital Daesang at the 32nd Golden Disk Awards.
Among those who were touched by her words was Red Velvet’s Yeri.
Yeri and Jonghyun were known to be best friends and she seems to have taken his death the hardest. A heart wrenching video of her crying at Jonghyun’s funeral showed just how close they were.
Yeri was not able to hold back her tears as soon as IU started singing. She had to be comforted by her group members, Akdong Musician‘s Lee Suhyun, and TWICE’s Nayeon as she turned her back away from the audience.
