Channel A uses photo of actor Hong Jong Hyun instead of SHINee's Jonghyun

Channel A has used a photo of the wrong Jonghyun.

The 'Straightforward Show' reported about Jonghyun's funeral procession on December 21, and used Jonghyun's song "End of a Day". However, a photo they used showed actor Hong Jong Hyun instead of SHINee's Jonghyun.

Near the end of the show, Lee Nam Hee said, "While we were introducing Jonghyun's song 'End of a Day', we accidentally used Hong Jong Hyun's photo instead of SHINee's Jonghyun's photo. We apologize deeply to Hong Jong Hyun. We will work harder to create a better broadcast."

However, the mistake didn't go over too lightly. Netizens were furious and demanded to know how they could have made such a grave error. NBC Chicago had made a similar error yesterday, but the backlash seems to be worse because Channel A is a Korean channel who should already know the difference.

If you or someone you know is at risk of self-harm or suicide, seek help as soon as possible by contacting agencies specializing in crisis intervention and suicide prevention in the United States and abroad.
