SHINEE: Already 3 years, that a star joined the sky

It has been three years since JONGHYUN, member of the group SHINee, passed away.

On December 18th, 2017, the late JONGHYUN passed away. He was 28 years old. This sad news came as a shock to the audience as he was a member of Korea’s most beloved idol group.

SHINee’s JONGHYUN made his debut with the band in 2008. He has performed in many hit songs including “Replay“, “Ring ding dong“, “Lucifer“, “Sherlock” and “View“. He also released his first solo album “BASE” in January 2015. Having worked as a singer-songwriter thanks to his talents as a producer, he was recognized by the public as a true artist working with EXO, IU, Lee Hi and Son Dam-bi.

JONGHYUN’s account, which actively communicated with fans via Instagram, was recently converted to a “memorial” account. When you click on the letter, a description of the memorial account appears, along with the phrase “Remember”. If it is converted to a memorial account, no one can log into the account and the message will remain the same.

Internet users visit his account to leave comments, full of heart on the occasion of JONGHYUN’s birthday.

“Shiny,” a non-profit public service company run by JONGHYUN’s bereaved family, didn’t hold a separate memorial service, but set the stage for young artists with a “festival of light or art”. It will not take place this year due to the re-proliferation of Corona 19.

Three years have already passed, but the music and stories that JONGHYUN left behind remain with us to comfort us.
