So heartwarming to see Korean fans helping out Shawols who couldn't pay their final respects to SHINee's Jonghyun in person.

Following confirmation of Jonghyun's death on December 18, SM Entertainment set up a public venue in which fans could pay their final respects to the SHINee singer. However, since the venue is located at the Asan Medical Centre in Seoul, international Shawols wanting to leave a message to Jonghyun won't be able to do so without travelling to Korea.

But thanks to the efforts of a Reddit user, international fans wanting to leave a message for Jonghyun can now do so.

In a heartwarming new Reddit thread, Redditor (and thread starter) ThisGuyKpops stated that they have contacts in Korea who can leave behind messages for Jonghyun at the Asan Medical Centre. As a way to help out international Shawols, ThisGuyKpops has offered to translate messages dedicated to Jonghyun sent through by fans, all of which will then be put onto sticky notes on a big wallpaper by their friends in Korea and passed onto the Asan Medical Centre to be with the SHINee singer.

Here are some of the comments left by international Shawols for Jonghyun:

  • "You did good. We’re all proud of you. Rest in Paradise."
  • "I'm not original enough so can I just use the last lines of End of a Day? "수고했어요 정말 고생했어요 그댄 나의 자랑이죠" and "thank you for being a part of my life" if that's not too much of a hassle/still fits on the sticky note."
  • "I’m proud and thankful for everything you did for all of us."
  • "'The most beautiful thing in all the world is right now. This moment. You. Don’t ever forget that' is what you told us, and now us back to you. Thank you for all you have done for us."
  • "Jonghyun. The man who I fell for 6 years ago, and whose music brought me so much happiness. You've done well."
  • "Jonghyun, I hope you're happy among the angels and the stars. Wherever you are, know that you did good and you made so many people happy. You did good. Sleep well, love."
  • “In your next life, wherever you are, i’ll let you know that i’ll love you again. I promise”
  • "The song is ended, but the melody lingers on. Rest well."
  • “You’ve done well and we will always love you—우리 블링블링 종현.”
  • "Jonghyun. You inspired so many lives and gave a voice to those who couldn't speak themselves. The world is a better place for having had you in it and I hope you've found your happiness."
  • "You endured a lot, Jonghyun. I'm proud of you. Thank you for everything."
