SHINee members opened up about the death of their bandmate Jonghyun last year, on MBC’s “Radio Star” on Wednesday evening.
“It was painful to hear ‘Are you OK?’ from everyone we met (after the incident). So we requested (our fans and people around us) through social media to treat us the way they used to before,” said Key. “That was how we could acknowledge (Jonghyun’s death) quickly and go back to our lives.”
“Not everything can be OK. But if our fans think of us as performing with Jonghyun on stage, I think we will be able to enjoy ourselves better,” said Minho. “We wanted to point this out (through this talk show).”
