The K-pop star took to Instagram on October 29 to leave a message for his grandfather, with a bunch of lovely photos.
The post is lengthy and Jackson's words are emotive. He has a lot of love and respect for his grandfather.
From a translation on onehallyu, the message says:
From when I was little
I could only go back to my old house in Shanghai once every year during the summer holidays.
I still remember it's already very late every day when grandfather comes back from the hospital after work.
After he comes back, he sees that I'm watching Journey to the West alone.
Although grandfather is already very exhausted, and he needs to work early in the morning, he would spend time and make a golden cudgel with newspaper to play with me.
The golden cudgel made out of newspaper is ultimately still made out of newspaper, it broke after using it to hit for a few times, so everyday he would make a few of those to let me play with them.
Grandfather was not just a dedicated doctor, professor.
He was also a loving good grandfather, good father and good husband.
Even when he was 93, he still woke up every morning and turned up for work at the hospital.
Because of you, I understood what's perseverance,
And also because of you,
I understood the spirit of being able to go through whatever suffering,
For the sake of the things I like.
I'm very proud that I could be your grandson,
And I will forever remember the things that you taught me.
We'll do our best to take care of grandmother.
At the same time, on behalf of our family, I would like to thank family and friends that were here today.
And also very thankful to all the leaders.
And also very thankful to all the medical staff that treated and took care of my grandfather.
And also very honoured and thankful to The People's Republic of China's former premier Zhu Rongji
And the current Central Political Bureau Standing Committee, Han Zheng for sending the memorial flower basket.
Dear grandfather, go well.
You will forever live in our hearts.
We'll always miss you. We love you.
