So, Park Kyung was not at K-Con LA.
The reason given was, you know, personal reasons.
And that’s that. Really, folks, speaking from experience: Just let that kind of thing lie. Personal reasons = none of your business.
I know people mean well when they say things like, “I hope he’s OK!!” But I doubt very much that Park Kyung missed a well-publicized event that he was scheduled to appear at just because he doesn’t like traveling much. Zico wound up in charge of the English, for God’s sake.
At times like this, having well-meaning people telling you that they hope EVERYTHING IS OK THINGS ARE OK YOU’RE OK RIGHT? I NEED FOR YOU TO BE OK can be a real burden when everything is NOT fucking OK. When my father broke his hip, and then had a heart attack, and then died, hearing that kind of thing from people made me want to throw up and punch them in the face, all at the same time.
(And because he lived in California, everyone up here in the Seattle area assumed I must be going down there to drink margaritas and surf in the beautiful sunshine. California is a Magic Fairy Kingdom where nothing bad ever happens!!!)
Last time stuff like this was happening, it turned out that Park Kyung’s grandfather died. Whatever is going on this time around, it’s not about you and your needs. You have to be really sensitive and think twice (or maybe three or four times) before you go posting on his social media or anything, all right?
ETA: I got a query over at BlockB.com from someone pointing out that Park Kyung has actually missed several events. While technically this is true, typically these absences have been announced in advance and have been due to the shooting schedule for Problematic Men.
