Exactly one year ago today, SHINee's Key left a heartfelt message on a fan's Instagram post encouraging her to stop self-harming referring to his own personal struggle. Today the fan, (Instagram name locketpower) posted an update on her progress and thanked Key for all of his support. She wrote,
"Dear Key Kibum, thank you. Thank you so much for existing and us Shawols are so thankful and blessed to have you as our idol. Thank you for supporting me, even though I'm still not fully recovered, I can honestly say that without you I wouldn't be where I am today."
Key in turn, liked her photo update.
Over the past year, friends of "locketpower" recruited fellow Shawols on Instagram to document their friend's improvement and prove to Key that his comment truly helped.
