Key HAS continuously made an appearance on BoA's reality show, but for an unspecific period of time, he was nowhere to be seen in several of the episodes. It was then revealed that his absence was due to the sudden death of his fellow SHINee member. Key took a break for about a month, and BoA finally reunited with the labelmate on the March 5 broadcast.
BoA stated, "I'm about to go meet Kibum (Key's birth name) for the first time in a while. I missed you Kibum."
In her interview, BoA shared that she saw Key's Instagram post and said, "I read that he wants to be treated indifferently so I knew I should just treat him the same. I actually feel more comfortable knowing that Key wants that."
As Key's wish, BoA did not ask any questions or act differently when she met him. The two then enjoyed their final trip to Jeju Island together.
