Why Will ATEEZ San Not Attend The Fan Sign?
On the 28th of May, KQ Entertainment, the agency that manages ATEEZ, came out with a new statement. The statement announced that member San’s grandfather has passed away. Reasons for his death were not mentioned in the statement. Due to this loss, San will be with his family during this time. This means that he will be absent from the ATEEZ fan signing, an online event. It is supposed to be held on Sunday – the 30th of May. San will be traveling to his hometown in the city of Namhae.
The ATEEZ fandom, known as ATINY, is well aware of the fact that San is very close to his grandparents. In fact, the young idol has spent more time with them than he has with his parents. There was another event that ATEEZ had planned on the same day as the fan signing. It was called – MAP THE EXTRAORDINAIRE ATEEZ WITH PERRIER. This event has been canceled for the time being. It will be rescheduled for a later date.
