Astro Moonbin Cause Of Death

Moonbin made his comeback with the ASTRO unit group with Sanha and they were scheduled to host a fan con tour. However, the organisers have now issued a statement and said, “With heavy heart, we would like to inform you that the 2023 Moonbon & Sanha Fan Con Tour: Diffusion in Jakarta to be held on May 13 is cancelled. After long discussion and consideration, we have to cancel this event due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control that we could not avoid.”

“It appears that Moonbin took his own life,” the police said in a statement obtained by the outlet.

“We are currently discussing the possibility of an autopsy to determine the precise cause of death.”

Moonbin was the older brother of Moon Sua, a member of the K-pop girl group Billie.

Moonbin had also been scheduled to perform at the Dream Concert in Busan, South Korea next month as part of the ASTRO spin-off group Moonbin & Sanha. The duo shared an EP titled ‘Incense’ back in January.

ASTRO released their third and most recent studio album, ‘Drive To The Starry Road’, last May.

Earlier this year, ASTRO’s Rocky confirmed his departure from the K-pop group. Their agency, Fantagio Music, explained in a statement at the time that the band would “continue on as a five-member group in the future”.
