The K-pop world was shocked when it was confirmed that Jonghyun had died on December 18. As tributes pour in from fans and fellow idols around the world, we thought we might celebrate the life of SHINee's lead singer by taking a trip down memory lane and taking a look at his most memorable moments.

From his stunning live performances to being a complete goofball, here are Jonghyun's 23 most memorable moments:
