Remembering Jonghyun's Incredible Kindness
I can't offer any new words about this tragedy, other than Jonghyun had one of the purest and most beautiful souls we've been blessed with in our lifetime. I'd like to celebrate three acts of kindness he showed to his fans, which doesnt even represent a fraction of what he's done for them. He was an angel, a prince, and a gift. 1. Sharing a story of a young man suffering because of Korean society's standards as well as his sexuality. “I support you who are rightly exclaiming that difference is not wrong. I do not think you need comfort or concern. You are that strong. I hope health and warm is with you for this end of the year.” - Jonghyun 2. Shows up at a fan's workplace after learning she worked about a million jobs, and helped her finish her shift and encouraged her to follow her dreams of being a radio producer. 3. When a fan starts to cry at a fan sign, he writes a note and gives it to his manager asking him to deliver it to the fan and... “I briefly made contact with Jjong and he mouthed out the words ‘Don’t cry’..even when I was getting Jinki (Onew)’s autograph, Jjong poked me in the arm when he had a break from his line and told me not to cry..I was really having a mental breakdown so I couldn’t tell SHINee all I wanted to say that I planned and went back to my seat to wait, then Jjong wrote something and a staff member brought the note over for him..” I'm sure you understand that I don't have many words and all I can say is, thank you Jonghyun.
