EXO Does Special Performance For Jonghyun, Says Final Goodbye Together With Fans

They performed this song especially for Jonghyun.

During their concert in Fukuoka, Japan on December 22, EXO left a message and paid a special tribute to SHINee‘s Jonghyun, who tragically passed away just a few days earlier.

“Jonghyun who was full of passion for music and the stage has left our side. Jonghyun was a true artist, we love and miss you so much. We will remember you forever.”


During the show, Suho had opted to not perform his solo stage of “Playboy”, a song composed by Jonghyun for EXO. Instead, towards the end of the concert, Suho stepped out to deliver a personal message for Jonghyun.

“Jonghyun who was a brother, a colleague a senior as well as a composer to EXO left this world a little while ago. I’m sure those who are here are hurting as much as his fans and EXO is hurting. I’m sure he (Jonghyun) knows this as well… I will sing “Angel” hoping that our beloved Jonghyun will be at peace and comfort. This will be the last song of today. Thank you.”

After his emotional message, EXO closed out the show by singing their song “Angel” for Jonghyun and wishing him hope and peace.
