I think you’re magical
I think you’re wonderful
Because of you, my heart is colorful
In this black and dark world, the moment I try to close my eyes
You make my life colorful

thank you. i miss you. and as always, i love you with my whole heart 🌙💛

I would like to thank SHINee for this 2018. I hope they know how brave, how strong they are; how incredibly thankful we are. They knew that it was going to be difficult for us, and although they must have feel beyond sad they managed to comfort us, embrace us, telling us “we are here”. They didn’t have to, you know? But they did. We’re always thankful, we’re always proud.


(2014) TAEMIN - The 1st Mini Album ‘ACE’:
There were dreams and goals that I had in my mind from the day I dreamt of becoming an artist. Although I had to go through many obstacles, I learned that I should always believe in myself. Strong faith has been the motivation of energy that keeps me going. As my effort for the dreams has made me become who I am today, I will continue to strive for higher goals with faith.

(2015) JONGHYUN - The 1st Mini Album ‘BASE’:
Just like my body’s stretch marks were a part of my growing pains, we will move on endlessly while enduring the pain, under the belief of my growth and this world’s growth. Because the pain creates the room for take-off, I thank you for the “stretch” that pushed me forward. As always, I need you.

(2018) KIBUM - The 1st Album ‘FACE’:
This is not defeating an impossible nor pushing limits. This album assures my capability within us and this will continue. All my actions are the truth of me and all for you.


To our beautiful Jonghyun,
It’s been a year now without you and I still find it hard to believe that you are really not with us anymore, My heart is still broken and I miss you so much.
I’m so thankful for all the beautiful music and memories you gave us before you left, I will cherish them forever.
You did well, you worked the hardest
