Shawols upset after The Rose uses photos taken from Jonghyun's IG for their new MV

The indie rock-band "The Rose" recently released a music video for their new song "She's In The Rain".
Natalie Morin writes that the song is a "beautiful serenade for lonely hearts" that "reminds listeners that they are never truly alone".
However, Shawols worldwide noticed that in a scene in the music video the polariod pictures that are hung from the room are actually pictures taken from Jonghyun's instagram.

Twitter user view_0525 shows in a tweet that (at least) a total of 12 of Jonghyun's pictures were used.

Shawols around the world are now trending the hashtag #더로즈_해명해 (The Rose, explain) in hopes of getting an explanation of why Jonghyun's pictures were used and if they have been allowed to use them. The hashtag is now trending in Korea.

OP comment: I saw comments about this a while ago and it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth to use his pictures in a music video for a song about feeling lonely? And if it had been some kind of honoring wouldn't they have announced it?
