Infinite Doesn’t Disappoint with Newest MV “Tell Me”

To Jonghyun

Jonghyun

(Jonghyun on the red carpet at KCON LA in 2016)

To a boy-to-man who I’ve watched for the past six years, this is my dedication to you.

As a musician, I resonate with your passion for music, for creation.

My sister and I grew closer together over your music.

I admire your vocal dexterity and ability to play with color.

I appreciate your appreciation for the softer dynamics of the volume spectrum.

I love your eloquence when speaking in interviews.

Listening to you as part of SHINee and as a solo act is  a joy.

Your inclusion of rich harmony was never unnoticed.

Lyrically, your writing was as inspired and as sensitive as you were.

On social media, you were outspoken and passionate about your causes: politics, mental health, LGBT issues.

Even in death you were achingly honest.

You were always enough. And it was okay that you made mistakes. It still is.

You did work hard. And you deserve to rest.

I promise to share your story and help others who are like you.

Thank you for being you.

수고했어요. 정말 고생했어요.
