Six years have passed since the late Jonghyun of SHINee passed away.
On the 18th, SM Entertainment remembered the late Jonghyun by posting a photo of him on SHINee‘s official Instagram with a short message, “I will always love you.”
Jonghyun was found in a state of cardiac arrest at a residence in Cheongdam-dong, Seoul on December 18, 2018. He died at the age of 27. The late Jonghyun, who debuted as a member of SHINee, was not only an excellent vocalist, but also active in writing and composing lyrics. He participated in the production of many songs, including SHINee’s “Juliet”, IU‘s “Gloomy Clock”, Taemin‘s “Pretty Boy”, and Lee Hi‘s “Breathe”.
He was also active as a DJ and novelist. He met radio listeners as a DJ for the radio show “Blue Night”, and also published the novel “Skeleton Flower”. The bereaved family established the foundation “Shiny Foundation” in 2018 using the deceased’s copyright fees to support the activities of artists devoted to cultural and artistic activities.
We hope this message finds you surrounded by the love and support of friends and fellow fans during this challenging time.
In times like these, words often fall short in capturing the depth of our emotions. Jonghyun was not just an icon; he was a source of inspiration, joy, and solace to countless individuals around the world. The impact of his artistry and presence will forever remain etched in our hearts.
Please know that you are not alone in your grief, and the KDOM family is here to provide support and comfort in any way possible. Let us lean on each other and draw strength from the remarkable community that Jonghyun helped create.
