Not long ago, The Rose posted an explanation on their Twitter regarding the situation. They have also removed the music video on Youtube.

The management explained that when they were filming the music video, they were trying their best to portray the meaning of the song 'She's In The Rain'. However, at the same time, they apologized for being unable to notice that the props used in the music video set that belonged to JongHyun. Concluding the official statement, they once again apologized to both the family of JongHyun, SM Entertainment and fans.

Despite that being said, some were still unhappy about the explanation as they felt that the production team did not think much about the props they had used.

On the other hand, some other netizens also told others to not think on one side and truly analyze the message which The Rose was trying to deliver.
