It has been nearly five months since his official departure and now INFINITE is gearing up for a comeback for the first time without Hoya. During their comeback showcase for their new album “Top Seed,” the remaining group members performed their new songs and talked about Hoya’s departure.

Dongwoo talked about how sudden the news was to him and how he managed through it and how he reacted the first time.

“I first heard about Hoya’s departure when I was at Sunggyu hyung’s house.

As soon as I heard the news, I cried for an hour while I was on the phone with Hoya.

All the members have different thoughts and aspirations and I respect his decision. Everyone has a path they want to choose.

Now that we’re 6 members, I feel like we’ve been through lots of hardships recently. All these emotions are included in our new upcoming album’s [songs].”

All four of the SHINee members uploaded handwritten letters about Jonghyun‘s passing to their official Japanese website.

After a great deal of contemplation, the members have decided to proceed with their Japanese concert tour “SHINee WORLD THE BEST 2018 ~ FROM NOW ON”.

They carefully expressed their thoughts through letters written to fans.

“Hello, this is SHINee’s Onew.

I don’t know what to say first. I want to thank everyone who has supported our group constantly. I also want to apologize to our fans for making them worry as well.

I thought it was not possible. I thought we could not do the concerts. However, that’s when Jonghyun hyung’s mother said to never give up. She said that we are people who give hope to others, hope to people who are having trouble somewhere.

If I can give happiness, spread happiness, even if i’m a lacking individual… I decided that we had to do the concerts and I will work hard to do my best. I lack in a lot of ways but I will do everything I can within SHINee to show the best.

Even if the progress is hard, I will do my best to show you guys the best.

Jonghhyun will forever be a SHINee member in my heart and also in the fans’ hearts.

The fact that we will forever remember is something that will never change with me and you guys as well. I will work towards showing my best self in all SHINee’s future activities.

Thank you very much.”

— Onew

Handwritten letter by Onew.

2Key

“Hello, it’s SHINee Key.

Thanks to everyone who worried for me, I’m slowly trying to go back to my daily life.

There were times when I cried and my heart hurt because of all the memories I had with Jonghyun, but I want to try moving on by thinking he’s still with me.

I know everyone is hoping for SHINee to continue and I contemplated about it a lot. But I don’t think it’s right to wait until my heart is completely healed.
With everyone’s worries in mind, we have decided to proceed with our Japanese concert.

I’m sure Jonghyun would have wanted us to continue, and I think it’s important to keep our promise to our fans and put on a good performance.

This year marks our 10th anniversary since our debut.
Thank you for always supporting us and worrying about us.

We will pay you back with a stage fit for SHINee.

I love you and thank you.”

— Key

Handwritten letter by Key.

3Minho

“Hello this is SHINee’s Minho.

The members have thought long and hard individually on the topic of SHINee’s Japanese concert and we have come to a careful consensus.

I am writing this letter to deliver my thoughts carefully and calmly. Even as I am writing these words many feelings and thoughts cross my mind but I will attempt to deliver my feelings as carefully as possible.

I am sure there will be those who are happy with our decisions as well as those who worry for us. I do not know what the correct course of action truly is but I choose to believe what I am doing is right and plan to keep our promise to everyone.

I believe that the moments we shared with our fans and the staff are the most precious and happiest memories SHINee has and that it is simply irreplaceable.

Nothing can replace Jonghyun and we worry that our stage may not be complete without him but I believe he will be there with us whenever we stand on stage before all of you. And I will sincerely put all of my heart into preparing for our stage.

As Jonghyun and the rest of us have promised, we will remember that you were there for us whenever we felt weak and wanted to run away and we will continue to sing for you. The amount of pain we have to bear is more than anyone can imagine but I believe you will give us strength to work through this all.

We will be thankful for all of those moments and continue to perform for our fans and Jonghyun with all of our hearts. I think we will get through this cold winter thanks to the warmth of your support and cheer. Thank you.”

— Minho

Handwritten letter by Minho.

4Taemin

“Hello this is SHINee’s Taemin.

To be honest, I wasn’t confident about the concert at first. However, I wanted to keep the promises I made to our fans and I wanted to be with SHINee even in the far future.

I looked back at all the times where I was the happiest and most at peace. I realized those times were when I was with the members and the fans. This thought made me fall in love with SHINee and the members even more. So much so that I did not want to give it up.

I know what the future holds in store for us will not be easy. But I will do my best to make sure SHINee is not forgotten, that it shines that much more. The members and the fans have given me so many beautiful memories and I will be thankful in guarding those memories.

I want us to be loved as SHINee and I want to get up on that stage confidently to show Jonghyun who will be watching us from above.

I am sorry to have concerned all our fans. Please watch us carry on. Take care of yourselves in the cold and happy new year.”

— Taemin

On a recent episode of SoyouxHani’s Beauty View, Soyou revealed the diet plan she used to lose 8 kg and it’s INSANE.

She revealed to Hani that she stayed on an extreme diet for a month for a bikini photoshoot with Elle.

I barely ate for one month. The whites of four quail eggs and half a cup of milk was my meal.” 

— Soyou’s drastic diet plan

It’s not safe to follow this drastic method and Koreaboo does not recommend doing so without speaking to your doctor.

Four quail eggs is roughly 64 calories only, plus another 57 for the (skim) milk.

“Even though I saw you off on your last journey..I still can’t believe this is real..the Jonghyun I’ve seen for the last 10 years was always bright and passionate.

You were an amazing person that gave laughter and joy to people around you..I respected that you sang with everything you had on stage and loved that when you were the most humane and warm person I knew off-stage.

I always thought of you as such a strong and awesome person..I feel stupid for being so limited in the way I saw you and I regret it..I was so close to you yet why couldn’t I see that side of you..why couldn’t I be there for you..how hard things must have been..

I only found out now that you were enduring pain I can’t even imagine all alone..I’m so sorry..and you did so well..don’t hurt anymore and I pray that you can rest in peace..to the ever shining Jonghyun oppa..I will remember you forever..”
