The poem includes the following lines: “Itaewon 173-7 / In that narrow alleyway / Do not even put flowers / Do not even stack the flowers,” “How scared they must have been at that night / How upset they must have been at that moment / 304 young and healthy children / How long has it been since they left us and became stars in the sky” and “I am ashamed of the idle irresponsibility of the adults / Who led you to a futile death again / Now I can not even lay out my sadness or excuses.”

Following the posting, many people joined in mourning the victims by sharing the poem on their social media.

On the 31st of last month, Jung Woo Sung also posted a black image without any captions to express his condolences to the Itaewon surge victims.

156 people were killed and 152 were injured in a terrible accident in Itaewon on the night of October 29th. The memorial altar set in seventeen different cities of South Korea runs every day until Saturday, November 5th — the last day of the week-long national mourning period.
