The first tweet, which was posted on November 3, 2014, reads, “The completed version of‘Tough Cookie’ has a running time of 4 minutes and 16 seconds,”
However, in the following month on December 31st, Zico tweeted a photo of a yellow ribbon, the official support campaign symbol for the Sewol tragedy, with a caption that read, “Even if sewol(time) passes, let us not forget that one Sewol. Don’t forget, never forget. 4.16.”
The third and most recent Twitter update by the idol star was a message regarding the length of his newest single, which reads, “My new single ‘Well Done’ has a running time of 4 minutes and 16 seconds,” an uncanny resemblance to the first tweet.
Yoo’s father stated in the interview, “She was really looking forward to attending Block B’s concert after coming back home from the high school science [Sewol Ferry] trip because we promised to let her go as a birthday gift…”
Mr. Yoo further commented that the news of his daughter’s passing during the tragedy was somehow reported to the Block B members. He then stated that his daughter’s favorite member, speculated to be Zico, paid a visit on the day of Yoo’s funeral with a handwritten letter to her.
“He [Zico] stayed for about an hour and a half. He and I talked and cried together for the whole time before he left. He said that he lost a very valuable and precious fan and shed a lot of tears… he cried a lot,” said Mr. Yoo.
Yoo’s father also told the interviewer that when Block B’s concert was postponed due to the tragedy and was rescheduled for several weeks later, he and his wife were invited to attend the concert as special guests. Yoo’s father and mother attended the concert with a framed photo of their daughter in their arms and enjoyed the show.
“My daughter was able to watch her favorite oppas at the concert she’s been dying to go to,” stated Mr. Yoo, “By the end of the concert, in the photo we had of our daughter, she looked like she was smiling.”
