Several days ago, a user by the name of 'I'm Bum' entered the Solitary Key room. (You can read more about Solitary rooms here.)
Read his series of messages below:
"There's really one for me.
How can I prove it's really me.
I'm not such an early adapter as you might think.
Why are you asking me to do these things.
I'm not the kind of early adapter who does those things.
Here. (Posts a photo.)
I'm just gonna be here for a little bit and then leave.
Why are you all so full of doubt.
I never posted that on Instagram.
Just wait up.
It's chaos because you all keep posting pictures.
I just came to see if this really was here.
I came in because I was excited so are you going to be crazy like this? I'm dying it's so hectic here.
How many times do I have to prove it's really me... TT.
Do I have to take a screen cap of my Insta and show it here...?
If I lie about this, I would be a bad person wouldn't I.
(Posts another photo.)
Until I leave, please just use it as chat. I can't read through at all.
I'm going to count to ten, so everyone, please stop posting for a moment.
10, 9, 8, 7, oh, it worked.
I'm doing well, and I'm eating well.
I just came because I saw that this was here~ And I don't get to see you these days so I wanted to talk~
Honestly, I really just wondered if there was a chat room for me and looked it up, and to tell you all that I'm doing okay~
Mm, everyone be well, and I should leave now.
Be well, thank you so much, I love you always.
Goodnight. (Exits chatroom.)"
The surprise Kakao chat room visit happened sometime in late January, and afterward, Key posted the two photos above onto his Instagram. Fans were then able to learn for certain that the owner of the ID 'I'm Bum' really was Key.
Fans were truly touched by Key personally letting them know that he is doing well, after last month's tragic news. They commented, "Cute TT", "So kind...", "Kim Ki Bum, earth's kindest generosity boss", "Bum, I'm always so thankful TT. He has absolutely no tone keke", "I can't believe I wasn't there but I'm glad Ki Bum is doing well, I love you", "SHINee, you guys are probably in Japan about now, please don't get hurt and do well preparing for your dome tour!", "I was one of the fans who succeeded in life by being there", and more.
Do you hang out in any of the 'Solitary' rooms?
