RIP Kim Jonghyun💜

So if you didn't know by now the SHINee Community, no. The K-Pop Community has lost a beautiful soul today.

When It Comes To K-Pop I Only Listen To BTS. But A While Back I Became Interested in SHINee because of the Friendship Between SHINee's Taemin & BTS' Jimin. So Little by Little I was learning/getting to know SHINee and honestly even though I am not really a real SHINee fan this news breaks my heart.

To know that Jonghyun was depressed (and who knows for how long) not only breaks my heart but brings a huge dissapointment towards Korean Entertainment Companies. Most Companies ignore or simply dont know when one of their Idols have depression because the moment they do they either hide the Idol until he is better or fire/let go the idol so that they wont have to deal or go through the process of helping the Idol get through their depression. For Jonghyun to have to go through this breaks my heart. I honestly hope & pray that his family, friends and the fans get through this a best as they possibly can. To Any of my Followers or SHINee fans here on Vingle I am truly sorry for your loss and know that your beloved Jonghyun is in a better place❤

And Like one of your beloved fans said... Today the K-Pop Community Lost A Beloved Star But The Sky Has Gained One More❤ May You Rest Peacfully Kim Jonghyun❤

ASTRO Promotes Tampons/Pads and I Am Here for It.
Yep, ASTRO is officially the brand models for Secret Day, a company that makes feminine hygenie products aka menstral pads wooooo!!!! 'Secret Day' explained, "They were selected because they have this sincere image of a considerate boyfriend who understands their girlfriend." And I'm pretty sure you get photo cards too? Maybe? In which case, I'm looking forward to that time of month LMAO. Why do I think this is really groovy? Because periods have always been a thing that have been ~gross~ and make men feel ~uncomfortable~ (tbh its the mark of a truly awesome man if he's cool enough to go buy you pads when you need them) Having men promote the product, especially idols that are meant to be role models, might help guys realize that they should be understanding and if they have a special lady in their life, they should be there to get through the tough times (some of the commercials include ASTRO giving out chocolate which, at least in my personal case, is NECESSARY during that time of month hahahhaa) I think this is a really cool idea! And here's the behind the scenes: This comes right after a story that spread all through Korean news sites: A girl was sitting on the bus when she got her period unexpectedly, there was a small blood stain on her leg and a man who was standing next to her saw it. He "accidentally" spilled the strawberry milk he was drinking near her seat and apologized, giving her his jacket to cover the milk stain. “I’m sorry I spilled it. You can take my clothes and tie it around you before you leave,” he said! A boy's friend posted about it online, the girl responded thanking him, and now that boy is a national hero lol! Boys who are man enough to understand menstration are my favorite boys hahahahah
I Don't Know What To Title This
I just wanted to share something I've been thinking about and I hope it helps some of you too. First I was shocked and I was deeply upset about the passing of Jonghyun, as the shock begins to subside of course I am still upset but it is transforming into a sad acceptance rather than me constantly wishing it wasn't real. But then I felt an emotion I didn't expect: anger I made the mistake of clicking one video on youtube that showed some idols entering the place of mourning and I was livid. The amount of camera flashes and zooming in to get the best angle of their dispair made me sick. Because I'm not on youtube often suddenly all my recommended videos were this kind of thing - all different news outlets all diffferent angles. The thumbnail making a big deal over certain idols, and using this tragedy for money. I was so angry. But then as I was watching the funeral procession, and watched Key, Onew, Minho, Taemin and others walk Jonghyun's body out of the hospital I realized something. It felt somewhat cathartic and therapudic to cry along with the crowd and to be able to watch it. I felt a sort of release and a sad sense of calm came over me. Watching other people, especially ones I recognize and respect, be in such pain like I was, helped release some of my emotions and I felt so much better. So while I'm still so angry at the news sites for sending hundreds of reporters and for making money off of this tragedy, I did get something positive from their video (I only watched it once) so at least there is that. So if you were feeling the anger I felt, remember that everyone grieves in different ways and watching these videos might help someone release and calm their emotions. I hope you are all doing okay, and I love you all.
Jail Time for Big Hit Blackmailer + Calls for Reported to Resign!
So, first part of the controversy is this: A CEO was sentenced to one year in prison for "blackmailing Big Hit Entertainment, threatening to reveal information to the public about alleged illegal marketing by the agency." Basically, Big Hit used a company 2 years ago to do marketing for them, then suddenly the company (that was financially struggling) came back and said they were going to release this ~secret~ about Big Hit unless they paid them a lot of money (approximately $291,000) Big Hit was like, wtf, and they said they have nothing to hide (the 'secret' was related to illegal marketing allegedly) They said: “Big Hit has nothing to hide, so as soon as we became aware of the situation, we filed a report with the police and actively cooperated with investigations.” “If Big Hit’s reputation ends up being damaged by these claims and reports, despite the our immediate handling of the situation by filing a report and cooperating with police, then there will be no entertainment agency in the future that can take appropriate measures in the face of blackmail.” “We’re very sorry to the BTS members and ARMY for the alarm that was caused with this issue. We will do everything we can and carefully manage our business partners and contractors to prevent something like this from ever happening again.” The CEO was found guilty for blackmail and was sentenced to a year in jail. Now, for the second part of the controvery: There is one reporter, Jeon Won, who works for a site called xsports who hates BTS with a passion. She heard the report about the marketing company finding "illegal marketing practices" and posted about how that is PROOF that BTS bought their Billboard award and that they should return it, that BTS are cheaters. *eye roll* Here's what she wrote: “With the accusations of illegal marketing practices, BTS’ eligibility for the ‘Top Social Artist’ award comes to suspicion. The winner of the award is determined by the hashtag votes and BTS has received more than 300 million. However, some netizens are now questioning the legitimacy. If the marketing took place with the use of part-time employees (to increase votes), then it’ll be fair for BTS to return the trophy.” You can hear her voice here from a press conference. She's the same reporter who clamined that BTS cheated on winning awards on music shows and she also announced one of their comeback dates before Big Hit did (which is a shitty move as a reporter). Now #엑스포츠_전원기자_사과해 (XSports_ReporterJeongWon_Apologize!) is trending WORLDWIDE. Since the "illegal marketing practices" were found to be lies, that means her only evidence that the Billboard Awards were bought is not true people want her to apologize but so far all that has happened is her article has ~disappeared~ Glad BTS won this round but jeez, when will people learn?!
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.
