“Hello. This is SM Entertainment.

“We are announcing the news of the album release to fans who love Jonghyun and Jonghyun’s music.

We intend to release the album that we completed with Jonghyun last year, which was planned to be released in the new year.

Jonghyun’s album will be released under the title ‘Poet | Artist’ online at noon on January 23, with the physical album released on January 24. A music video that was prepared together with the album will be released at the same time as the music is shared online.

Jonghyun loved music more than anyone and tried to to communicate through music, and we hope that his feelings will be conveyed to everyone.

Additionally, all the profits from the sale of this album will be given to Jonghyun’s mother, and will be the foundation for the establishment of an organization to help those who are living in difficult circumstances.

Thank you.”
