It is well-known that Taeyeon and Jonghyun have been close friends for many years, having known each other since their trainee days at SM Entertainment. Following the SHINee singer's death on December 18th, the Girls' Generation leader has now shared one final message to her friend.
In a new Instagram post, Taeyeon shared a series of photos she took from Jonghyun's final solo concert that was held at the start of December. The Girls' Generation leader also included a lengthy goodbye message to her close friend, writing about how much she missed him, how she wasn't there for him, and how much she loves him.
Here's a translation (from AllKpop) of Taeyeon's message to Jonghyun:
"That was you, and if another you existed, everyone will still love you. I want to like you, love you, and encourage you. I want to hug you once more. That's what I could've done but I hate myself for regretting like this after losing my chance.
Our unfortunate, precious Jonghyun. Our Jonghyun, who I feel like will answer Yes! in a high tone if I call right now on the phone, I miss you so much. I'm sorry I didn't embrace you enough. I love you and thank you.
I remember you telling me about how you wrote 'Lonely' with me in your thoughts. We are very similar and alike. We know those feelings.
Kim Jonghyun, the most special, cool, fantastic artist in my life, I miss you so much and I want to hold your hand.
Jonghyun ah, you are the best. You worked so hard. I will make sure you're not lonely."
