Shinee sent out a heartfelt message to their late member Jonghyun who died in December.

As the group wrapped their final show of their Japanese tour, they took to Instagram to share that Jonghyun was not far from their thoughts while they took to the stage without him.

Sharing an image from back stage, they wrote: ‘I know you were here love you jhong.’

The band have also officially confirmed they will continue performing as a four-piece.

Last week as they began their Japanese tour, they gave a nod to Jonghyun, with Onew telling the crowd on the first night: ‘Everyone, it’s been a while [since we last met]. I’m very nervous to be seeing you after so long. We’ll do our best till the end, so please watch over us.’

Key added: ‘The members all worked hard in the short amount of time we had for this show. We may be lacking in some aspects, but we will work hard till the end.’

Taemin then shared at the close of the show: ‘The memories of my time with Jonghyun are precious to me. He’s like family to me, so I will never forget him and I will always keep him in my heart. From now on, I will try to be a stronger Taemin, and we will try to be a stronger SHINee.’

Jonghyun died on 18 December 2017 when he took his life in a hotel room in Seoul. It later surfaced he had been suffering from depression.
