Minzy couldn't hide her grief-stricken state; she simply held onto her mother Kim Eunhee and cried without saying a single word. Kim shared, "Grandma really adored Minzy. She would empathize for Minzy's hard work as a celebrity."

A representative from YG shared, "Minzy has been really shocked and sad since hearing the news," and, "If necessary, we might adjust 2NE1's schedule."

As a traditional dancer she created a new "Solo traditional performance," and had been close to the heart of the Korean people for a while. She passed away at age 81. Gong had undergone a stroke in 1998 and had since been fighting off her illness. Her funeral was held at Glory Culture Center. She will be buried on the 12th.

Minzy always had a special spot for her grandmother in her heart. During broadcasts she would comment, "My grandmother's health is not the best right now but she still supports me and watches me on TV." She also posted on her Me2Day a photo of her with her grandmother, saying, "My grandmother always squeezes my hands and tells me to stay strong <3."

Internet users replied, "Rest in peace," "It's such sad news," and, "2NE1 just made their comeback; I hope everyone can shake it off and show us their awesome selves on stage."
