To everyone who has been looking after my team and I, hello this is Key. Although I’m not sure how should I deliver these words across..Previously on the 24th, there was a schedule in Japan which I was unable to attend due to personal matter. On the 23rd. my closest grandma passed away. As she is the one who raised me up, who loved me, I’m trying hard to cope with the fact and I still don’t realise that she is no longer around. However, I thought that it just didn’t feel right for me to announce this before through the company and leaving the two major concerts; SMTOWN and the 1st concert of our tour, so I’m only talking about this now. I will keep in mind that grandma will be looking at me working hard from heaven, and I will work hard for the remaining tour. Everyone please keep giving us lots of support and I will meet you with a smile! Thank you.

anyone who is a fan of shinee knows how close key has been to the grandmother who raised him. he has always credited her for who he is and couldn't even speak about their bond without tearing up. i can't imagine anything worse than losing her on a day that was supposed to be his happiest. please send kibum and his grandmother your love.
