SHINee’s Key shared some exceptionally sad news with his fans this weekend. Key’s grandmother passed away on his birthday.
The message that he sent out on this Instagram along with a picture, “To everyone who cares about me and my team, hello. This is Key, I don’t know how to say this, but.. I wasn’t able to participate during the Japanese promotions on the 24th due to personal problems. My grandmother passed away on the 23rd. She took care of me with love when I was growing up, so I am still in shock over the fact and can’t believe that she is gone.”
He continued his message with, “However, I felt that it was wrong to tell this news through a company announcement ahead of SMTOWN and the first concert of the tour, so I am just telling you this now. I know that my grandmother was watching me from heaven and will continue strongly through the rest of the tour. Please support me and I will see you with a smiling face! Thank you.”
Our deepest condolences goes out to Key and his family.
