On December 21, Girls' Generation's Sooyoung wrote to Instagram, "I was so proud the voice I heard next door in the basement practice room became a voice that filled an entire concert stadium. You worked really hard. That day when you were sitting across from me, my eyes were on you for a long time. I didn't want to act like a sunbae who thought she knew everything, so I didn't really say anything to you... but I should have. I was always amazed by you, and I was also jealous and shy. You were precious to all of us, and it's regretful that you're gone. What more can I say. You did well, and you worked really hard."
f(x)'s Amber wrote, "Because of you, I was able to laugh. Because of your advice, I could dry my tears. Because of your courage, I could gain courage. When I was embarrassed, you didn't judge me. You tried your best to understand my imperfect Korean, and you embraced me. When people joked you and I were twins, I was honestly really proud because I wanted to become a great person like you. Thank you. I'm so thankful I was able to be your dongseng. I'll become an Amber who you can be proud of. Jjong oppa, you did well. I love you."
Super Junior's Yesung also said farewell by posting audio of Jonghyun's "Y Si Fuera Ella" from SHINee's 1st album 'The SHINee World'.
'Show! Music Core' PD Huh Hang expressed his feelings on Jonghyun's passing, sharing a set list from the music show. He wrote to Instagram, "The 1st artist for 2018's first 'Show! Music Core'. I keep thinking of Taemin's sincere eyes when he greeted me and asked me to watch over you last week. You really worked hard. Please rest peacefully."
On December 20, fans in Taiwan also posted a message for Jonghyun on the Taipei 101 tower that read, "Jonghyun, thank you. Because of you we were really happy. Jonghyun, we hope that you're an average person in your next life. You'll always be a star, but you'll be shining in a different world."
Rest in peace to Jonghyun once again.
