5 members of SHINee were planning to perform the best stage for the debut in Japan, but JONGHYUN couldn’t participate in the LIVE Stage because of high fever. Thus SM staff decided to open the LIVE Stage with only 4 members. This decision is made for JONGHYUN’s health so we ask for your understanding regarding this matter.
Also relay of ‘SHINee JAPAN DEBUT PREMIUM RECEPTION in LONDON’ in FACEBOOK SMTOWN will be postponed due to the situation. However, our staff will upload some parts of the LIVE Stage (video) as soon as possible (photos will be uploaded continuously).
We hope everyone can cheer JONGHYUN up and wish him all the best for a speedy recovery.
Thank you for reading and all your understanding.

Jonghyun’s fever was not as bad [due to a stomach bug] and he performed Japanese Unplugged version of Replay @ Abbey Road Studio 110619
“Ah, it’s really not as bad as people are making it sound. We were talking to the staff in Abbey Road Studios earlier, and basically they said he has a stomach bug (‘: Apparently another member had it yesterday, but they’ve recovered now but passed it onto Jjong. It sounds like a 24-hour thing, he’ll be racing around again in no time ^^
Plus he did actually appear on stage for the last song. He looked tired and didn’t smile as much as usual, but he put his best into that one performance and oh my days did he make me cry.”
