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.

Jonghyun Found Dead, Suicide Suspected
(source) the story is still developing and im honestly too shaken to say anything right now, i've never felt so punched in the heart he was foundu in an apartment in cheongdam with the gas turned on and coal on the stove top, unconcious. the police were called, found him at 6:10pm (a little less than an hour ago), he was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. i am so sorry to his family, his fans, and to everyone who was touched by his talent and inspiration. i can barely type at the moment because im so upset but i hope for whatever reason he chose to leave us, he is now in peace. update: he texted this to his sister just before he was found "Send me off please. Tell everyone I've worked hard. This is my last greeting." Please don't believe the translations saying he said 'I've really suffered' or 'it was so hard' because thats NOT what he said. Here is his korean message: 나 보내달라 - send me off 고생했다고 말해달라 - tell me i worked hard 마지막 인사다 - this is my last greeting source This is so important: I know it is hard to believe at times, but when you're feeling most hopeless please remember it will pass, there are people who love you, it is your depression trying to convince you there arent. you matter, you are loved. *edit* its been shared that he booked this apartment at noon today, this was not his home but a rental specifically for this purpose. the police worked so hard to quickly find where jonghyun was and rushed there with emergency crew. they truly did all that they could and it must have been so ard on them to know they were just too late. my prayers too all the rescue workers and police involved. you're heroes.
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.
What Did You Love About Jonghyun?
Hey Vingle Fam^^ Today has been a very dark day - for a lot of us especially. The news of Jonghyun passing hurt me to the core as I am sure it did to most of you who watched and loved him like I did. So, this 60 minute interaction is for him. I couldn't help but think that this would be a way to help us come together and share the things we loved the most about him. HERE IS THE TASK: Say what you love about him. It could be his smile, the way he treated others, or even when you saw him in dramas. ANYTHING. I am going to compile all of these into one card. All of your comments will go into this card to send love to all of us and most importantly, the other members of the group and who knew Jonghyun. They won't see this but that isn't the point right? The point is that we need to show love for each other right now, more than ever. So...comment away!

In Honor of Jonghyun
It was a sad day yesturday and all of us were emotional messes. In light of what happened an amazing person created a petition for the Mental health for Artists. You can go to the site and look through what its all about. I signed the petition earlier today along with others that I know. The support for this is amazing, look at that number! We all care about the Idols we love and the ones we listen to. To show support and to have them know that we are here for them, through thick and thin, through begining (and even when we find out about them) all the way to the end. Lets show our love! Alright so its the end of the day but I wanted to share how many people have signed all day! (334,658 )Great Job everyone lets hope the petition gets its notice from the companies so it can happen Fam tag! @Eswee  @ezzygomez24  @EvodiaEbraheem  @shellyfuentes70 @StefaniTre @SugaKookieV  @Seera916  @sukkyongwanser @SimplyAwkward @sukkyongwanser  @starbell808 @Alyessiazavala  @Alijah @AngelaDarkness  @JaxomB  @JJiBin @jademarie4567 @VKookie47  @VeronicaArtino @BTSxEXO @Banitu @BabydollBre  @KarenGuerra93 @KassandraSosa @KendraReeve @KellyOConnor @kitkatkpop @KimFergus @KokoroNoTakara @KassieXiong @KimFergus @MaelstromVIP  @MsLoyalHeart  @MaritessSison @MelissaGarza @IsoldaPazo @imiebegay14 @inuyashagal  @twistedPDnim  @TracyLynnn @tinafalcon22 @tigerlily84 @Taekookimonster @QueenPandaBunny  @RedChord @WinKonVI @pharmgirlerin  @Lelulgc @jjrockstar @Gaarita100 @FromBlue2U @Yugykookie97 @kpopandkimchi
