"On January 19th around 18:15 PM...I got a call from Hee-Chung's best friend.... I had a "Bad-Feeling" when I saw his name on the display of my mobile....And it was....He said with a tearful voice....." 

Just now...Hee-Chung's heartbeat stopped....." ..... I answered, "What did you say??? Really??? Are you serious?????????" ..... I just couldn't believe his words... As I visited Hee-Chung some days ago and I even received his e-mail around 11:00 AM... Suddenly, he has gone.....and we will miss him forever...


I have respected Hee-Chung's attitude towards drums & the underground scene. Probably these words could be a "HINT" to describe his character/personality.... "He was thinking about Drums 24 hours" "Drums CRAZY !" "Drums ADDICTED"...... That's him.....


I remember how proud he was of playing at OBSCENE EXTREME ASIA in JAKARTA. And he really enjoyed the whole festival. I shared a hotel-room with him so we talked a lot before falling's an unforgettable memory... He was very happy about the recording session in a small studio in JAKARTA after the festival. For him, playing drums was much more interesting than usual sightseeing!


But a terrible disease had been sneaking up... KOREA 2-days shows in October 2013 was a tough job for him... He was struggling with an intense pain in his shoulder.... things getting OBSCENE EXTREME ASIA in TOKYO 2014, I'd like to say, it was a miracle to play such extreme drumming in his condition......But he made it. What a man!!! And his last show in March 23rd at GIFU.....he appeared with a bandage....he looked like a "Broken Bone" patient..... So when our set had started, I announced to the audience, "our show might be stopped....coz our drummer's condition is extremely bad...hope you understand..." and....he made it!!! Simply it was INCREDIBLE!!! He was a SAMURAI!!!


After 9 months of stressful, painful fighting in a hospital...unfortunately, his "BODY" went to another world...but his "SPIRIT" is always with us...He did not give up hope until the last moment....He was always talking about the plan after his "COMEBACK". I was (and still am) very proud of being your band-mate, Hee-Chung ! You were (still are) the MAN!!! THANK YOU !!!
