SM Entertainment’s SHINee member Key shared through his social networking Instagram account the reason why he didn’t attend the Japanese promotions last September 24 and why he has been on a break in posting on his account.
“Hello this is Key. To everyone who cares about me and my group, I don’t know how to say this, but.. I wasn’t able to attend during the Japanese promotions on the 24th due to personal reasons. 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. 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,” he said. “Please support me and I will see you with a smiling face! Thank you.” -translated by allkpop
