Various fan pages dedicated to the idol star have announced they've come to an end.
On August 20, one of Onew's most popular and long-running fan pages named onewsama_ announced to its followers, "CLOSE 2008.08.19 - 2017.08.20. Thank you for enjoying my posts throughout the long 9 years even though they were lacking. Goodbye."
Another fan page with the name ontherecord_jk also announced, "2012.09.09 ~ 2017.08.21 CLOSE. I was happy during our times together. Thank you."
timeto_onew also announced its closure, "151001 ~ 170821 CLOSE."
According to fans, several other fan pages such as jongyupics and onjong_bot have also shut down. Many netizens believe Onew's recent scandal had the greatest impact in the closure of the fan pages.
Meanwhile, the investigation on Onew's alleged sexual harassment is ongoing. The scandal is expected to continue bringing detrimental effects to the promotions of Onew as well as SHINee.
