Shortly after, fans took to Seulong’s Instagram account to share messages of support.
Please don’t blame yourself for the accident…
I know nothing we say will comfort you, but I hope you heal so that we can see you soon…
Oppa, you did nothing wrong… Don’t blame yourself. Cheer up!
It’s wrong to jaywalk, but people always come first when it comes to the law… so I wonder how this will end…
I know saying we’re cheering you on won’t help you heal your heart, but please don’t be traumatized. The pedestrian made a mistake and that’s what led to their passing. It’s not your fault, so take care of yourself and come back to us when you’re all better…
Seulong debuted back in 2008 with 2AM, and he is now active as a singer as well as an actor in both musicals and dramas.
Deepest condolences to the family, and may the victim rest in peace.
