Channel A officially apologized for mistaking Hong Jong Hyun for the late SHINee member Jonghyun.

The December 21 airing of 'Straightforward Show' covered Jonghyun's death and his funeral. During the segment, a photo of actor Hong Jong Hyun appeared on the screen instead of the SHINee member. Informed about the mistake near the end of the show, anchor Lee Nam Hee delivered an apology on the spot.

We sincerely apologize to Hong Jong Hyun, Jonghyun, his family, and fans."

A staff member from Channel A also stated to News1, "There was a mistake during the editing process on the day's broadcast. We realized the mistake during the live airing. We have apologized twice. Once again, we apologize to Jonghyun, his family, and fans, as well as Hong Jong Hyun. We offer our condolences."
