He sang this for Jonghyun
Happy Birthday Jonghyun! I love you and miss you! ❤ ❤ ❤
I hope everyone can celebrate the day you were born since it is a very important day and be happy! 🙂
Thank you for supporting me in this and taking part in the memorial for our Jonghyun. All the letters are beautiful and your words of support for me that were included in the emails were much appreciated and I hold them in my heart, really. Thank you for the patience while it took me a bit long to do this and I changed the date a few times.
This is the song he made for us to give us comfort during his death and here is a video with translations below.
“I can’t just watch you be the same as me”, really hit me. You see, he loves all of us so much. Please try to be happy for him and get better. Don’t fall down the same path he did. I often get the question as to why did he do it, didn’t we or SHINee or his family mean anything to him, etc. I get it, I ask myself those questions too. Nothing could ever justify what he did or make it less selfish but I do forgive him and I understand he wasn’t in his right state of mind. People make depression out to be some mental disorder, in reality, it’s a feeling that tries to tear you apart and it gets worse and worse to the point you fall down the same path Jonghyun did. It consumes you if you let it and it weakens you if you’re not strong enough to fight it. Please don’t be the same as him, please may no more Shawols kill themselves. I know you’re strong enough to be okay. I always tell people, there has to be darkness to see the stars. Overcome your darkness and see the shining star that Jonghyun is now.
Hopefully, this memorial won’t be sad but it brings you peace.
Here is a beautiful letter from Annalee:
I still don’t know how to write this, a memorial, a tribute. I still don’t know how to write about you in the past tense. But I want to participate in a memorial, to make sure you are remembered, to make sure everyone knows how much we love you.
To start off with what I loved most about you. I wasn’t sure what my answer to that was. There are obvious answers, such as your talent, your voice, your smile; there are deeper ones, such as your courage, your support, your compassion. I loved how you always encouraged others, and stood up for what you believed in, even if I didn’t always agree. I loved how you sought to help people, how you looked after your brothers, mother, and sister. And there are little things; I loved how you always fixed your hair in front of any reflective surface, I loved how you got excited over matters, the way you looked at your brothers. But to say I loved any of these most can’t be done. It is a hard question because, when you love someone, you love them as a whole; you overlook faults, and even small eccentricities become dear, so pinpointing a reason or a trait that mattered most, I can’t decide. I love you because you are Jonghyun, one of the bright, shining stars that made my life so much better, who brought me joy just by seeing you, who worked so hard and achieved so much and yet remained humble (mostly, as I still remember the comment about how your heart didn’t flutter, you made other hearts flutter 😉 ).
The second, to name a favorite memory of you; that was easier, for I saw you in person in Chicago, and despite how dreamlike it seems over a year and a half later, that night is easily one of my most important memories of you and your brothers. To sit there in the same room and see you in front of me, surrounded by people who loved all of you the same way I did, I am grateful I had the chance to experience. I will cherish that night in my heart, and continue to cherish every new memory as well.
So, my love, this concludes yet another letter. I only want to add, thank you for your life, and for giving so much of it to others to make them happy. Now I know you are, too, and far along in the future, I will see you and tell you myself.
As always, I love you, Jonghyun. And I always will.”
Here is a beautiful letter from April:
Trans of Taemin’s acceptance speech read by Leeteuk: “Hello, this is Taemin. I thank you so much to be able to receive this award at Seoul Music Awards. I am spending my days well as I rest while traveling and experiencing new things I had never done before. Running without pause until now, I had really gained experience and lots of memories, but looking back now at the memories I wasn’t able to make back then feels good. To fans who gave us such big love, and to those others who gave me attention, thank you so much. Please wait just a little bit because we will be back soon looking our best. And thank you so much, Teukie hyung, who is helping me to receive this award despite being busy. Happy new year and look after your health since it’s cold. And lastly, to our Jonghyunnie hyung watching from heaven, I am so sorry and thank you so much, and thank you, Onew hyung, Key hyung, Minho hyung. Thank you, Father in heaven.”
My baby is too precious, my goodness! ❤
Hello, I hope you’re all well.
The new date for the memorial I’m hosting on here will be Sunday, January 28th. Thank you for your patience since this is a bit difficult for me. If any of you wanted to share your thoughts or feelings and messages to him by emailing me with the subject “Jonghyun Memorial” then you still have time. It’s a few days away still so don’t rush. I understand it’s difficult. Thanks to those who have shared their feelings and submitted their letters to me as well.
Yes, I see them and read them. I’m sorry for not responding if you were expecting a response, one was so beautiful I was even at a loss for words and brought me to tears. Also, it’s good to hear often from my friends and followers here that I bring much comfort to them and inspirational sayings. It makes me glad to know I can be some strength.
Day thirty-five, your last gift to us came today. Thank you! Seeing the music video was hard and I wasn’t ready but did it anyway since I knew I would see clips on social media and I wanted to help with streaming. I guess this is really goodbye, isn’t it? We can’t get anymore real than this, it’s impossible to continue to deny reality. I wish you were alive to see the success of your album and the recognition you’ve always wanted for your talent. Why is it people show they care when it’s too late? People and things are often taken for granted but the truth is, anything could happen. A person could die for whatever reason and the world may end any minute. People with a lot of money are careless with it, people put work before loved ones, people forget to appreciate the simple things such as the beauty of a sunset or simply a bird in a tree. I hope people stop taking things and those in their lives for granted.
I want you to know that I never took you or SHINee for granted. I love and appreciate every moment I have with you boys in my life and whenever the day comes for the group SHINee to rest as well and the boys go their separate ways, I’ll hold onto the memories like I have of you. The album, especially the song “Before Spring Comes”, was a punch in the gut and it all hurt way more than I could have ever imagined. I’m still not okay quite yet, am I? I wonder when I’ll completely recover from this and not be sad when I think of you at all. I’m still upset with you at times, I’m sorry. When this album came out, I just thought “such a waste”. But what’s done is done, it was your choice and I have no choice but to accept that. It’s been such a bittersweet day. It’s the first time I had feelings of sadness mixed with happiness during a comeback. I hope you’re doing well. As always, I love you and miss you ❤
