1000 Years Always By Your Side by SHINee.

So I’m going to be honest with you guys. I don’t watch this video very often and that’s because it really makes me sad.

Watching it reminds me too much of the loss of Jonghyun, but part of the reason why it affects me so much is because it’s such a moving video.

The plot involves a father who has already died and is trying to make his son, who is dying from a terminal illness, happy before he dies.

SHINee is nearby throughout the action, and at the end, they travel with the man to the afterlife. It’s a real tear jerker, and I love the Victorian costuming.

When the video came out, SeoulBeats wrote a really good article discussing how this video fits into the Japanese belief system surrounding life and death. I suggest you check it out to get the deeper meaning of the video. After reading, stream the video released below, and come back tomorrow to meet #10.
