On April 11, a broadcasting writer for MBC revealed on their personal Facebook that snacks meant for SHINee's Jonghyun and sent in by a Polish fan were consumed in his stead by the company's writers, stirring up some controversy.  


The person wrote, "A fan of SHINee's Jonghyun from Poland sent a lot of presents to MBC.  It seems that this innocent fan believed writing 'MBC address to SHINee's Jonghyun' would get it to Jonghyun.


However, this sincere present was unfortunately delivered to our manager of the same name as Jonghyun, and I bring this sad news that it went into not a snacking Jonghyun but the writers' stomachs.  The Polish fan girl must be 10,000 times more upset than I am when I get on the wrong bus.  I'll enjoy the snacks.  I'll enjoy the snacks."

As soon as this was posted online, it was screen captured and uploaded onto fan cafes and online communities under "Gift sent by an overseas fan for SHINee's Jonghyun was pocketed by MBC writers," causing some controversy.


Netizens wrote in response, "The fact that the present was intercepted in the process is absurd itself, but it is even more ridiculous that the writer would even post this.  Do you have any sense?" "Isn't Jonghyun a radio DJ for MBC?  They could have definitely given it to him," "I feel sorry for the international fan who sent the present," and more.  


The writer's Facebook post has since been deleted.  What do you think about this incident?

How could you sit and say you feel sad about the other writers actions then go and say that you'll eat them well. HYPOCRITE TO THE MAX.

Okay I feel sorry for the fangirl, but honestly how could she be so stupid enough to send a gift to MBC instead of just sending it to Sm Ent?!?!

@verutzza Yes but he also works for Sm Ent, it would have made more sense if she would have sent it to them, they are HIS 'offical' company instead of a place where he works...It's like sending flowers to someone who you like at work but instead of sending it to the actual person you like you send it to their boss/coworkers, like that's just plain old stupid...

This situation of K-pop fans 'gifting' (via mail) their favorite K-pop group is, in general, a *bad idea.*  And especially gifts of *food,* because they've had incidents of where fans have given food to K-pop Idols that was 'poisoned' (not deadly) somehow.  Unless the gifting takes place in an 'invite only' situation (a Fan Club), accepting of gifts can create problems that the K-pop Idols don't need.  Crayon Pop had a 'charity incident' that created unanticipated problems for them ... AKP Article (red GO button) Search = "crayon pop apology" ... Article dated Aug-27-2013 ... MBC TV should have a policy that 'food gifts' are thrown away.  Other gifts could be evaluated by an 'outside' charity firm for appropriate action.

K-pop fans, instead of 'gifting,' should purchase a Music DVD of the K-pop group. Keep it for themselves, or gift that to a local friend. THAT would be appreciated FAR MORE by the K-pop Idols than any mailed gifts of any type.

Actually, most firms (like MBC TV) have 'general conduct' policies that apply to employee conduct. My *guess* would be that the MBC TV employee doing this 'food eating' could be *terminated* from their job in this situation, if their identify became known to MBC TV.

Yes, it's clearly Jonghyun "SHINee"on the Letter from Poland fans.. It said that They give it to the Manager of the "Same Name".. Isn't it Ridiculous? Are there Anyone Other that Named "SHINee's Jonghyun"??

Isn't it dangerous to eat substances or food from an outside source?

Damn... I feel bad for the fan after sending those goodies overseas, how much she paid for the carrier to deliver it. How could MBC misunderstood that? Is their manager an IDOL, geezz.. where is the common sense and yet they posted this stuff online? WOW. JUST WOW. MBC needs to apologize to the fan..
