Seventeen’s Seungkwan Pays Tribute to Late ASTRO Member Moonbin on Instagram

Seventeen’s Seungkwan (real name Boo Seungkwan) paid tribute to late ASTRO member Moonbin.

On the 20th, Seungkwan followed Moonbin’s Instagram account through his own account. Prior to following Moonbin’s account, Seungkwan only followed Seventeen’s official account and the group members’ accounts. However, after Moonbin passed away, Seungkwan followed a total of 14 accounts including Moonbin’s.


Moonbin and Seungkwan were known to be close friends in the entertainment industry as they were born in the same year of 1998. Moonbin expressed his gratitude to Seungkwan by sharing a cake gift he received from Seungkwan on his birthday in January.


In a February interview with GQ Korea, Moonbin expressed his affection for Seungkwan, saying, “Seungkwan is the first celebrity I became close with outside of ASTRO members. I don’t like going out, but thanks to him, I’ve been to many places. I have many memories with Seungkwan.”


Moonbin was found dead on the afternoon of the 19th at his home in Cheongdam-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul. The police are investigating the cause of his death through an autopsy.

Moonbin’s funeral hall was set up at Seoul Asan Hospital, and the departure was announced to be at 8 a.m. on the 22nd. As of 9 p.m. on the 20th, all ASTRO members including Rocky, who had left the group, were reported to be present at Moonbin’s funeral hall.
