The rapper also took to his Instagram account to thank everyone who congratulated him.
“Despite the sudden news that was announced today, I would like to thank everyone for their sincere wishes and congratulations! I promise to make better music moving forward!”
Mad Clown debuted with “Luv Sickness” in 2008 under Soul Company but he only gained fame after he joined Starship. His collaboration with label mate Soyou from SISTAR for “Stupid In Love” (2013) was considered a turning point in his career as the track ranked first on all 9 major music charts, including MelOn, Mnet, Olleh Music, and Bugs Music.
He recently collaborated with singer Kim Na Young for “Once Again”, an OST for “Descendants Of The Sun“.
We hope to see some wedding photos soon on his Instagram. Congratulations to Mad Clown and his bride-to-be! :)
