sm entertainment

i just saw the news about jonghyun’s album being released on the 23rd. and i know a lot of people are shocked and unsure, but i’m glad that it’s coming. not because i’m greedy for new music (even though i always welcome shinee music) but because it’s what jonghyun wanted. he finished the album. it isn’t some half done sloppy work because sm wants to make a quick buck.

jonghyun finished it. and it will be beautiful because jonghyun is beautiful and music is beautiful and his being is beautiful.

and his legacy is beautiful too.


   After Jonghyun passed away I immediately felt as if I should have something close to me. Something that could represent him and maybe make his passing less painful. I believe a lot of people have felt this way, which is why a large amount of Shawols are getting tattoos in honor of Jonghyun and SHINee. I hate needles, however, so even though I wanted to join in I knew I wouldn’t be able to handle it.
   I searched for an object that could maybe help me mourn in any way. I went online and found this beautiful sterling silver birthstone and moon ring. Because we all know how much Jong loved the moon I thought this was perfect, and the birthstone is an April diamond jewel. 
   If you would like to purchase this ring please visit TDN Creations. The artist’s name is Trang Dai and she handcrafts all of her jewelry. The price was around $50 and while that may be a bit more than some people can afford at the moment, it’s cheaper and less painful than getting a tattoo. 
   I’m not trying to plug or spam people with an ad, I just wanted to share my love for this ring and let people know it exists. It’s beautiful and delicate, like Bling, and the crescent moon and April birthstone remind me of his timeless existence. Rest in Peace, Jonghyun. 

You know what I’m sick of?

“EXO/BTS did this, won this, learned this, when will BTS ever? When will EXO ever? When will your faves ever? Your faves can’t relate.”

BTS/EXO are NOT the only groups capable of doing what they’ve done. Any group can work their fucking asses off from the bottom and make it to the top. ANY GROUP. This is not a “my group is better than yours thing.” I’m sick of it. I’m sick of EXO L picking on ARMY. I’m sick of ARMY picking on EXO L. I’m sick of fanbases picking on other fanbases. Focus on your groups and stop trying so hard to destroy others. It’s not cute. You’re not helping your group any. Your group would probably not like you and think you’re problematic if they knew what you were saying. There’s just no fucking point. So stop it. Just shut up. And for the saltiness…here are some sweet photos of BTS and EXO together. Bye.

I am so shocked and lost for words man. Jonghyun has passed away and I legit teared up. Shinee is one of the reasons I started listening to Kpop and Jonghyn is an incredible talent. This is so heartbreaking man. 

Man depression and mental health is something I wish countries like South Korea would be more open about and recognize as a serious problem.

My heart and prayers go out to his family, his friends, his members and all of the fans. This is such a devastating loss man


I’m honestly heart broken. As someone who struggles with mental illness and suicidal tendencies, I always fall down a little more when I see things like this. I wish more idols/models/musicians in Korea talked more about their mental illness and the pressure of being in the industry.

Prayers for his family and friends.


So, I’m sure everyone is still tired and down about Jonghyun’s death. I’m currently still trying to hold up. But I want to FYI some of you guys about something.

As we go out with the rest of the week, many people will be returning to their regular work/posting/life. And some idols will be going back to work and promoting again. Now, this is what I want to say: Please, with all my heart, do not misunderstand and/or hate those who will be doing this. Everyone and I mean everyone has been very respectful and caring about this situation. However, we all cannot be depressed/down forever. As time goes on, so does life. Idols need to go back to work and people need to move on. I know it’s gonna take a while (maybe even longer) for some of us to move on, but we shouldn’t be nitpicking at those who already are trying to move on.

I already have seen some people getting sensitive about some posts. For example: Monsta X’s upcoming Japanese MV. As a Monbebe I’m happy for the upcoming music, but I am as well apologetic on behalf of Starship and their Japanese record label. Not the boys since they’ve done nothing wrong. As a Shawol however, I understand that the boys and maybe the company cannot control when and how their promotion will be present. We all have to know that they need to work and that life goes on.

Other things will be going on and we cannot help it. Many have notified that a lot of idols will be cancelling schedules and promotions on behalf of Kim Jonghyun. However, they will not be delayed for long. It’s almost impossible for idols to cease so much work all at once. They may be inactive for a few days, but do not expect any longer. Especially since it is with so many idols. Many people are presuming groups and soloists are going to cease schedules for the remaining of the week or for another week, it’s possible but not highly. It’s going to hinder sponser schedules and businesses. Their work is their life-line, so it cannot be stopped for too long. I understand with many of Jonghyun’s close friends and SHINee themselves. But, other idols need to get back to work and continue with what they’ve started. Some may even start tomorrow. Hence, I pray no one tries pointing fingers and calling out idols as “inconsiderate”, “rude”, “horrible”, etc…

Also understand that some of us fans are trying hard to move on, so there are gonna be a few jokes and smiles. This does not mean we are being inconsiderate or rude. We are trying to bring the positivity back and reassure everyone that there will be better days. We are also following what Jonghyun would’ve wanted us to do: be happy and not let our emotions control us. Do not and I mean DO NOT, go calling out people and calling them inconsiderate. They are only trying to continue living and move on.

It’s been very very very tough. Tears have been shedding, hearts breaking, and minds shaking. But we shouldn’t be pitying ourselves, others, and Jonghyun for too long. It’ll only hurt more. In due time, things will be okay, not the same but okay. And maybe with this, I am sad to say, many people will learn a lesson that those with depression/mental illness/suicidal thoughts, are not to be taken lightly. Instead of mourning our hearts out in sadness, let us mourn with strength and newborn mindsets. Jonghyun has done a lot for people. Let’s do the same and bring back positive energy and understand that Jonghyun wanted us to know and believe that he did amazing and we too can do just as much.

For those who are still struggling or feel the need to vent out your sorrows, feel free to talk to me. I’ll listen to you and try my best to comfort you. If you don’t want comfort but just wanna vent, go right on ahead. I’m here to listen. I know depression, I know the feeling of losing someone you love, I know loneliness, I know betrayal, I know sadness. I’m not gonna judge you. Not at all. But understand this:

No one can be happy all the time, however, no one should be sad all the time.

Let us use time to allow us to move on. Others may be faster than others, but it doesn’t mean we don’t still feel the emotional pain of losing Jonghyun. There may be others who weren’t familiar with him but respected the situation and are going back to regular living. Some who were huge fans but are trying to let it go and move on. Whatever the case please don’t blame them and misunderstand. As I said, we all can’t be sad for too long.

This was long but I hope many read this and understand. I’m hurting too. But I won’t let my sadness consume me. Let’s all do the same and allow Jonghyun to move into the Heavens without regret. I’m sure he’d rather see you all smiling than constantly mourning in sadness for him. ^^

Please reblog if you’d like to share and tell anyone who is still mourning that it’s gonna be okay. We lost a shining star physically, but not mentally and emotionally. Jonghyun is forever embedded into our hearts and memories.

Shawol’s Hwaiting! SHINee Hwaiting! Everyone, Hwaiting!
