SHINee appeared on SBS' radio program 'Cultwo Show' on October 24, and Jonghyun revealed that he once tweeted something about a phone contract fine and the very next day, the fine disappeared.

To elaborate, Jonghyun said on the show, "The day after I posted my opinion about the phone contract fine onto Twitter, the 2 million won (~1,900 USD) fine no longer existed. However, I don't think it changed because of me. The day before, the topic came out on the news, too, so people knew about it. I think young people found out about it because of my tweet."


The DJs asked if he had any interest in entering the political world, and thankfully for fans Jonghyun replied, "Nope. It's okay. I want to continue being a singer."

why pay a fine of $1000 to use a older phone when you can buy a new phone with that money!

It was a 1200 dollar [?] fine on people who use a 2006 or older home phone because it causes something to some frequencies between signals. It was to become a law but i guess they reduced it or just removed it between the news came out and Jonghyun's tweet
