Spectrum have released a tribute song and music video to their late member Dongyoon.
The song called ‘Dear my‘ was the final song that had been recorded with Dongyoon before his sad and unexpected passing in July this year.
It is a beautifully wistful ballad track which was produced by member Jaehan with lyrics partly written by Kim Dongyoon himself. The lyrics express the group’s gratitude and love towards their fans.
The accompanying music video recalls the moments the members all spent together with Dongyoon.
Listen to Spectrum’s ‘Dear my’
The day before the song and music video were released, the remaining members released a handwritten letter that they had written together.
Read Spectrum’s letter below
“Hello, everyone, this is Spectrum. It’s been so long since we greeted you like this. Are you guys doing well?
We are eating fairly well, sleeping fairly well, and are doing well while practicing to show you all a good image, without illnesses. We are doing well like this, but how about you guys? We can believe that you’ve been doing well without getting sick, right? We miss you, everyone.
And we have some joyous news for you.
Tomorrow, September 6 at 12 PM KST, a song produced by Jehan called ‘Dear. My‘ is being released.
Some of you may have heard a small part of it in the past.
In ‘Dear. My‘, there is a letter from Dongyoon that he never delivered to you. It is also the last song that the child who is now shining in heaven recorded. This song is only meant for you all, and also contains our feelings of hope that you all will never forget our Dongyoon.
Please listen to ‘Dear. My‘ a lot and love it a lot.
The seven rays of light that Spectrum showed the world have not faded yet.
Just like it was from the beginning, as long as the name Spectrum exists, we will always shine as not 6 rays of light, but 7 rays of light.
We hope that you all will walk with us on the road where the 7 rays of light shine down.
We love you, and thank you, everyone.
Sincerely, Donggyu, Minjae, Jehan, Hwaram, Villain, and Eunjun.”
