SHINee's Minho kindly explains to a child why Jonghyun is not here and introduces him as a 'good uncle'


On March 3rd, SHINee members appeared in an ODG STUDIO video to sit down and review their K-Pop careers with children.

Onew, Key, Minho, and Taemin each sat down with kids who were born after the boy group had made their debut on 'Kids Review K-Pop Star's Career.' Each pair watched different performances and listened to various songs by SHINee.


All the kids were impressed with SHINee's performances, while the members were often hit with a reality check on how many years had passed since their debut. While watching the performances, one child asked Minho why one member was missing. 


After watching the old performances with five members, the young girl quickly realized that the performances after 2017 only included only four members. She stated, "Oh, there's one person missing?" Minho sadly replied, "Yes, one person is missing." The girl asked in response, "Who? Why? Left the group?"

Minho then calmly and carefully introduced Jonghyun by saying, "He's uncle Jonghyun...um..he's not well.. so..." The girl said, "oh, then he's not a bad uncle," to which Minho replied, "yes, he's not a bad uncle, he's a good uncle." Then continued to explain about the first song SHINee released as a four-member group.

After seeing the video, SHINee fans couldn't help but feel sad inside and share the sorrows with the SHINee members. Many netizens praised Minho for how he handled the question by introducing the late Jonghyun as a good uncle to the young girl. Fans were clearly able to see the sadness in Minho's facial expression and fans were touched as well, as they reminisced back at the time when Jonghyun was with SHINee.
