The music video taken from SMTOWN live concert in August features all SM Town artists, including BoA, Super Junior, Girls’ Generation, SHINee and EXO.
SM Entertainment has released the music video for “Dear My Family” featuring all members of SM Town, including the late Jonghyun. The SHINee member was seen opening the performance with his ad-lib.
Footage from the six-minute video was taken from “SMTOWN LIVE TOUR V in Japan” in August last year. It also features BoA, Super Junior, Girls’ Generation, EXO, Red Velvet and Jonghyun’s fellow SHINee members.
The song has been announced as the final release of “SM Station 2” this year. All the earnings from this song will go towards UNICEF as charity. “Dear My Family” is an R’n’B ballad track that was produced by Yoo Young Jin in 2001.
Jonghyun passed away on December 18 after being found unconscious in a residential hotel. Police believe that he died from inhaling toxic fumes. The late singer was gearing up for his comeback before his death and reportedly had done filming the music video for his comeback song.
An insider who worked with Jonghyun on the set of the music video revealed that his new song “had a bright vibe. He seemed the same usual on the music video set. I couldn’t feel at all that he was struggling all this time.”
Gregory Hwang, an SM Entertainment Producer Director from BeatBurger, recently uploaded on Instagram the idol’s never-before-seen dance practice video, where he was seen dancing shirtless to an upbeat song. “The guy who made the choreography isn’t picking up so I’m just going to upload it. My boy is so good at dancing,” so Gregory wrote in the caption.
Following his sudden passing, some of Jonghyun’s and SHINee’s music returns to multiple Billboard charts.
