Later the same day, Hyunwoong deleted the message and posted another photo while thanking fans and apologizing for worrying them.
“I’m so sorry for worrying you. To be honest, I feel empty in my heart and that is so large every night, I think it’s grown a lot and gotten worse than I realized. Reading each of your comments has been a great source of strength for me, and it made me realize that I really shouldn’t have had thoughts like this. I won’t make you worry again. I’ll show you a smiling Kim Hyun Woong. I’m so, so sorry for worrying you, and I’m so sorry to my family, friends, fellow members, and fans,” he wrote.
Fans after reading the post were glad that disaster was stopped; many are encouraging for better treatment of idols and for people to stop harassing them online.
14U disbanded in May this year based on mutual agreement of boys.
