Fans encourage Super Junior's Leeteuk to stay strong after the death of his father and grandparents
The K-pop idol Park Jung Soo, also known as Leeteuk from Super Junior, lost his father and his grandparents recently to a tragic car accident. In response, fans have reached out to console him and encourage him to stay strong.
Leeteuk's three family members were driving in a car together when they were hit. They were hospitalized, but unfortunately passed away. Leeteuk is currently completing his mandatory military service in the South Korean army, but he was released as soon as news broke. His sister, Park In Young, also put her music on hold to rush to the hospital where they were being treated.
In response to this tragedy, fans have been tweeting #StayStrongParkJungSoo and #StayStrongLeeteuk to show their support for the artist during this difficult time. One fan tweeted out a copy of a recent letter Leeteuk's father wrote him that demonstrates just how close the two were:
Our condolences go out to Leeteuk during this hard time.
