2PM's Wooyoung says he used to be in the similar depressive state as the late Jonghyun

Wooyoung, Jonghyun, Jonghyun
2PM's Wooyoung revealed he saw his past self in the late SHINee member Jonghyun.


On January 15, Wooyoung had an interview with TV Report at a cafe in Gangnam in light of his comeback with the 2nd solo album.


When asked why he lacked solo promotions compared to other 2PM members and took 5 long years to make a comeback, the idol star mentioned Jonghyun's death and stated, "I recently heard the unfortunate news about Jonghyun. I believe he made such decision because he was struggling far more than me, but I deeply understand him and I believe there are a lot of celebrities who are going through similar situations. I, too, was in a similar situation 5 years ago."

Wooyoung continued, "It (Jonghyun's depression) seemed like my own story. At the time, I wanted to overcome in any way possible. I only thought of the 2PM members. I could've ended it but I thought I couldn't just end it this easily. I held on thinking about how I need to finish strong."


He then shared how he overcame his depressive state, and said, "I found a way of my own. I learned to draw, I tried scuba diving, and I relied on hyungs that lived longer than I have. I overcame by reading books and watching documentaries."
