“I met you when I was 19 so it’s been nearly 5 years now. When I called you after practice and complained about how hard it was you always listened and I could meet up with you over drinks comfortably and talk to you openly.
Oppa, you always gave me advice and scolded me. I don’t know why but I depended on you a lot. I liked you a lot and I told you all the time that you were a good person. You were always someone amazing, and someone I had to learn a lot from. I used to see you often when I was down or bored but after I was in this controversy I couldn’t call you..I admit I was embarrassed ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ but I should have.
I should have called you and kept badgering you to meet up. I regret it so much that I’m going crazy. I had no idea that you were having a hard time. Even as I’m writing this, I can’t believe it I want you to say it’s all a lie and come back to life. Oppa this really isn’t right. Whenever I said I wanted to die, you would scold me. Why would you die. I really don’t understand. I’m so angry. How can you be like this. I want to go back in time just a day and beat you out of doing this if I have to.
I know I can’t, that’s why it makes me even more sad and crazy. I always complained about everything to you and I didn’t know what you were going through.
This whole situation is terrible…I miss you oppa..I’ll come see you soon. I will come quietly so it doesn’t cause you harm…I’ll see you soon..it must be cold..just wait a little bit oppa.”

R.I.P. Jonghyun of SHINee i go to Korea often and depression is a topic not often discussed, therapy is almost taboo cause of the country’s “just get over it” attitude. Hope this a wake-up call to the whole industry over there.

I did not know him personally but my thoughts and prayers go out to Jonghyun and his family/friends. I also hope this sheds light on the fact that mental health is equally as important as your physical health. If you or someone around you needs help; reach out! Let’s spread love!

“It was a cold day when I first went to Korea and visited a broadcasting station.
That’s when I heard the song ‘Hot Times’ for the first time.
I treasure the memory.
Thanks to this performance, this song, I wanted to stand on stage faster and practice harder.
Thank you for giving me strength.
You were the first senior that I met in Korea.
No words can express how I feel right now.”

“Jonghyun would always laugh brightly.
Even just a few days ago, you greeted me with a smile when we met at the gym
I was even jealous of your bright smile… I can’t believe it…
I didn’t know you had so much pain
So much that you couldn’t wipe away with your smile…
You loved singing even while exercising… I hope you won’t hurt anymore and are happy…
My prayer goes to you. R.I.P”

I still remember clearly the sparkle in his eyes while we talked about which parts of songs we liked and why we loved an artist or a song.
That’s why I feel more empty.

As a fan and someone who loved music together, I pray he’ll rest in peace.”

“I never became friends with him but I kept running into him at the gym. He would always smile and hi first and care for me so I would linger around him and talk to him because I wanted to get close to him. I was always happy going to the gym at the thought that maybe he would be there again and trying to think of what to talk about with him….and my heart breaks at this unbelievable tragic news. You did very well. I won’t forget how warmly you welcomed me. I wanted to become friends with you hung. I hope you rest in peace.”

58. Monotree’s Hwang Hyun
“We really weren’t a great fit. Our thoughts never aligned and we fought emotionally beneath the surface. You bothered me and I got frustrated. I didn’t understand why you wanted to work with me still for every album. Do you know how angry I got because of ‘Lonely’ this year? ㅎ I wanted to make up with you over drinks sometime but you really are a jerk you make me feel sorry until the end. I never knew I’d miss the days we made small talk at the studio. I’m sorry. I should have done better by you. Rest in peace. I’ll see you later. You did well.”
– Hyun Hwang
“Jonghyun the passionate musician and amazing artist has left far away. Working with him was always a new challenge and I learned a lot during those precious times. I wanted him to call upon me more but you left to such a far away place so suddenly. I truly hope you can rest in peace in that place.”
