You were so beautiful and radiant, and I'm sorry that I wasn't able to do anything for you and couldn't be of any help. I'm truly sorry. I should have helped you in at least some small way, and I'm really sorry. I'm so angry and I hate the world so much, but I really hope that you'll be happy. I'm sorry. Thank you."
Former After School leader Kahi also wrote on her Instagram saying: "Another sun has set today... sigh... although we need to protect our children, we also need to protect our idols... never forget... that someone is always praying for you... RIP".
