SHINee is keeping their promise that the late member Jonghyun would forever be part of the K-pop group. In the final part of The Story of Light album, Jonghyun is the subject of one track, and his voice is featured in another.

The Story of Light Ep.3 is the final installment of SHINee comeback album. Overall, the third part contains a lot of Jonghyun's memories. In the title track "Our Page," Onew, Key, Minho, and Taemin recall their time with Jonghyun.

The R&B song has a slightly medium-tempo and electric piano melody. The band's frequent songwriter Kenzie, along with the four SHINee members, wrote the lyrics of the song which is all about their memories with Jonghyun. The emotional "One Page" music video already garnered one million views in less than 24 hours since posting on YouTube.

In the English-translated lyrics of the Korean song, the four SHINee members sing the lines: "As five layers stacked up, holding hands and crying together/All the memories/It's so clear/I don't want to forgot it/I can't forget it." The band also teases that there are more to come for SHINee. "This is not the end of our story. Let's be together until the end," the band assured.

Onew, Key, Minho, and Taemin earlier open up about their struggle following Jonghyun's death. The young Korean singer committed suicide at the age of 27 in December 2017.

During the promotion of their new album, the boys confessed that they feel the pain of losing a friend whenever they are asked if they are doing okay. Members Key and Onew also admitted that they underwent counseling and post-traumatic stress disorder treatment.

The group appealed to the public to treat them the way they used to be to help them cope with Jonghyun's death. SHINee has stressed that they don't plan to look for Jonghyun's replacement and fans should always remember the band as a five-member group.

Meanwhile, Ep.3 also contains the romantic song "Tonight," "Retro" that has a groovy vibe, and the ballad song "I Say." Most importantly, the mini-album also include the special track "Lock You Down" which features Jonghyun's vocals. Many fans can't still believe it but are thrilled to hear Jonghyun voice once again.

"I never expected to hear him one last time in their new comeback...OMG...This was so unexpected when I was listening to it. Made me cried instead of yelling out of excitement...But yet it made me happy to hear them as 5 again <3," a fan commented.

SHINEE's three-part Korean album The Story of Light marks the band's first EP since Jonghyun's death. The first part was dropped on May 28 with the lead single "Good Evening." According to the boys, it says something about what others think of the band.

The Story of Light Ep. 2 was released on June 11 with the lead track "I Want You." This is all about the SHINee members' view of themselves. Finally, the last part was out on June 25 with the lead single "Our Page."
