'Esquire' magazine tells the story of the Shiny Foundation, formed by the late Jonghyun's family

Jonghyun, Jonghyun

In next month's issue of 'Esquire', the magazine will be sharing the story of the Shiny Foundation, a foundation formed by the late SHINee member Jonghyun's mother and his family. The magazine hopes to raise awareness for the Shinin' Foundation, which recently launched on September 6. 

The foundation's goal is to provide aid and comfort to young musicians in similar shoes to the late Jonghyun. Read about it below:

"Even in my sick eyes, I see too many young people hurting," said director Lee Eun Kyung of non-profit foundation corporation '#Shiny''. Director Lee Eun Kyung is the mother of the late Kim Jonghyun, who left this world on December 18, 2017. The Shiny Foundation is a foundation created by Jonghyun's family. A small opening ceremony for the foundation took place on September 6 in Chungdam-dong, Seoul. The foundation was created so that a mother who lost her son would be able to comfort the shadows of young artists who walk the same path as her son, whom she believed would walk toward the light like his group name SHINee. The foundation plans on aiding youths who struggle due to a lack of management. It also plans on founding scholarships in partnership with arts high schools. But the main goal of this foundation is to build a mental counseling treatment center meant to comfort the souls of young artists who will undoubtedly suffer small and large scars from promoting in the entertainment industry. Each December, the foundation seeks to hold a commemorative art gala for the late SHINee's Jonghyun. Director Lee Eun Kyung said, 'Even now, I suffer painful experiences from hearing a song containing my son's voice, playing in public. Still, I am thankful because even though my son has gone from this world, there are those who love his music.' The late Jonghyun is gone, but his music is still left in this world. The Shiny Foundation will operate with funds from Jonghyun's composition royalties. We still remember the late SHINee member Jonghyun, who always shined brightly."

Look out for the full story of the Shiny Foundation in the October issue of 'Esquire'.

"아픈 제 눈에는 지금도 아픈 젊은이들이 너무 많이 보여요." 재단법인 '#빛이나'의 이은경 이사장은 어렵게 말문을 열었습니다. 이은경 이사장은 2017년 12월 18일 세상을 떠난 고 #김종현 군의 어머님이십니다. 빛이나는 김종현군의 유가족이 힘을 모아 만든 작은 재단입니다. 9월 6일 서울시 청담동에서 재단법인 빛이나의 조촐한 창립식이 열렸습니다. '#샤이니'란 이름처럼 빛을 향해 나아갈 줄 알았던 아들을 잃은 어머니가 아들과 같은 길을 걷는 젊은 문화예술인들의 그림자를 어루만져주고 싶어서 만든 단체입니다. 소속사가 없어서 힘들어하는 청년 예술인들을 도울 계획입니다. 예술계 고등학교들과 함께 장학사업도 진행하려고 합니다. 무엇보다 대중 활동을 하면서 크고 작은 상처를 입을 수 밖에 없는 젊은 예술인들의 영혼을 달래줄 수 있는 심리상담치유센터를 설립하는게 주요 목적입니다. 매년 12월이면 샤이니 김종현을 기리는 빛이나 예술제를 개최할 예정입니다. 이은경 이사장은 말했습니다. "아직도 어딘가에 가면 아들의 목소리가 담긴 음악이 흘러나오는 아픈 경험을 하고 있습니다. 그렇지만 아들이 떠났어도 종현이의 음악을 좋아해주는 분들이 계시니 늘 감사하게 생각합니다." 김종현은 세상을 떠났지만 종현의 음악은 세상에 남아있습니다. 빛이나는 김종현이 남긴 음악의 저작권료를 바탕으로 운영됩니다. 우리는 여전히 밝게 빛났던 샤이니 김종현을 기억합니다. _ #종현 #쫑디 #혜야 #하루의끝 #우린봄이오기전에 #숨소리 #한숨 #좋아 #데자뷰 #shinee #jonghyun #inspiration #moon #lonely @shinee #esquire #esquirekorea
