You Did Well, Jonghyun.

It is with a very heavy heart to say that our beloved SHINee member, Kim Jonghyun has passed away on December 18, 2017. He had committed suicide by carbon monoxide. He had sent a last text message to his sister who, in turned, called the police to save him. Unfortunately, he went into cardiac arrest and was unable to be revived.

SM Entertainment has long since released a statement regarding his death – all activities have been ceased and they are to have a private funeral with family, friends, and colleagues only. There will be a separate one for fans to attend and give condolences to.

Right now, his suicide note, along with the text message he had sent to his sister (along with the apartment they found him in), has been surfaced and is currently being passed around Twitter, Facebook, and all the other news sites.

Don’t be a disgusting piece of shit and spread this around – without warning the contents.

All I can say about his suicide note is that he had a lot to say about how the Korean entertainment treats their depressed idols. In short, like garbage. Continuously, the Korean entertainment has brushed aside depression and are always “surprised” to find out when an idol commits suicide. However, Jonghyun, for as long as he could, tried to fight against his mental illness and he tried to help those who are like him by being a voice for them, along with the Korean LGBT.

While we here at Korean Beef always teased him – calling him Donkey Kong – we always had a very soft spot for SHINee. We love SHINee very much. We were there since the beginning when they asked to Replay for their Noona.

To say this affects us, or at least me in particular, is a vast understatement. I hope Jonghyun finds peace and I hope he’s free from his torment.

Please, if you’re having trouble coping in this world of ours, please check out this site, find your country, and call the suicide hotline. There is absolutely no shame in that. If you have friends, family, please talk to them and use their support.

As someone who’s been diagnosed with clinical depression for 13 years (officially diagnosed, that is), I cannot begin to tell you how important it is to understand that you have people around who love and care about you. Reconnect with some friends. Reconnect with some family. We are all here to support each other.

You did well, Jonghyun. Rest in peace.
