“It’s not that Jonghyun-hyung brought us down or anything, that’s not it. That’s something that many other people are worried about, including his family. It is sad that we can’t see him currently but I know that my hyung is waiting for me and [cheering me on]. I will do my best to show the best side of me soon.”

Lastly, Key just wants his fans to treat him as they always did and that through their love and support, SHINee will not disappoint them.

“I wish you guys will treat me as you’ve treated me all this time. I want you guys to love me like you’ve always loved me and treated me like you’ve always treated me. If you support me and my members, we will not disappoint you guys.”
