On Monday, we reported that Seo Min-woo, leader of K-Pop boy band 100%, died late Sunday, March 25. He was 33 years old. In a statement provided by his record label, TOP Media, Seo Min-woo (often referred to as just “Minwoo”) passed after suffering cardiac arrest in his home in Gangnam, Seoul, South Korea. Early Tuesday, March 27, the rest of 100%, singers Rockhyun, Jonghwan, Chanyong, and Hyukjin shared a statement via the TOP Media Twitter. You can read that, in English, below.


Minwoo’s passing comes at a dark time for K-Pop fandom: In December of last year, Jonghyun of boy band SHINee passed of an apparent suicide. He was just 27 years old. While the cause of Minwoo’s cardiac arrest is still unknown, it’s really heartbreaking to see such incredible talents gone so young.


We will continue to update this story as new information becomes available.
