Super Junior's Kyuhyun not only left us impressed but also emotional as he sang the late SHINee member Jonghyun's solo version of "Y Si Fuera Ella" in the latest episode of The King of Mask Singer.

When asked about his song choice, Kyuhyun explained it was a tribute to his friend. "This is the song that our Jonghyun released as a solo track for the first time. I was a trainee for only two months, so I didn’t know many people. After debuting, we were really friendly, and we were in a unit group together."
"The incident occurred while I was serving in the military, and I cried a lot. I thought, ‘I’m older, why couldn’t I approach him first and express my thoughts'," he said while holding back tears and recalling the day of Jonghyun's passing.
"One day, I wanted to perform his song on a television program and tell him, ‘Hyung worked hard to sing your song, Jonghyun. Are you listening?’ I believe that he enjoyed [my performance]." You did well, Kyu. Jonghyun must be proud.
