A Spanish magazine outrages fans by mocking Jonghyun's death in a satirical comic on the K-pop industry

Jonghyun, Jonghyun
Spanish weekly magazine, El Jueves, has outraged K-pop fans with inappropriate content. 

According to a Twitter user, CintiaDero, El Jueves recently published a satirical comic strip about the K-pop industry. It touched upon sensitive topics of sexual abuse, exploitation, and depression in the K-pop scene. It also criticized the K-pop idols' styles and performances, as well as their fandom. 





The part that angered fans the most is how El Jueves mocked the death of SHINee's Jonghyun. The character with pink hair resembles "an idol that killed himself at age 27 after not being able to cope with the pressure of the industry." His bubble reads, "At 27! Just like my buddies Jimi Hendrix, Janis, Jim Morrison, Kurt...!"

Jimi Hendrix, Janis, Jim Morrison, and Kurt (Cobain) are artists who have died at the age of 27. 

Other characters in the comic are seen saying, "Call security...! A nobody is trying to sneak into the '27 Club'."



The comic also often uses the word "Pinypons" to describe K-pop stars. Pinypons are plastic toy dolls. The nicknaming seems to imply that K-pop artists are plastic, mass-produced dolls. 






In reaction to the comic, K-pop fans have created a petition on Change.org to shut down the magazine. Around 28,000 fans have left signatures as of this writing.

Instead of everyone just getting upset on AKP comment box, I strongly suggest, one of the AKP admin can start a petition: Draft a letter of complaint thru AKP, we can sign a petition and send to the magazine. We have Spanish readers, I am sure they can get the email address for the media to raise our complaint. This can be done from all AKP readers/members on behind of Kpop and Jonghyun's. We all sign the potition form to demand a apology for their nasty journalism, then they know Kpop fans are not to be messed around with. Sorry, my English is not strong so I cannot draft the letter but I am happy to sign the Petition.


Update: Petition is up to sign now!!!

Hohliu, your suggestion was good but unfortunately, the way you asked was very patronising. Telling people to stop complaining and demanding that they do something that you are unwilling or incapable of doing yourself is kinda lame. " Stop complaining and do that thing for me ". Yikes

Wow, each day we hit a new low as human race.Moral and ethics are lost on us. Who in the right mind can think that somebody's death is an appropriate theme for a satire. What the heck??? They deserve to be shut down. This is horrible and beyond disrespectful. And to refer to Jonghyun as "nobody????" He maybe was not known to the whole world but he was never a "nobody." First of all he wass somebody's son, brother, friend, before he was a celebrity.

But they're not making fun of his death tho? They're using it to show that even though Jonghyun died, a member of one the biggest groups in Korea, the industry has seen no change to remedy one of the many factors that led him to kill himself. If anything, they're making fun of the industry but not him actually dying. I do understand if you don't like him being called a nobody, but again, they're not making fun of his death. Did you read the comic? Or are you going off the original's tweets emotions?

In a way, it is a COMPLIMENT to K-pop Music. Five years ago, nobody in any EURO nation would have bothered to have a CLUE as to how to 'rip up' some deceased K-pop Idol. NOT saying that you have to like it though.

You don't even have to be a fan of Kpop to know this is just fucked up. Not to mention, idol life wasn't the only thing affecting Jonghyun. This article could have made a real statement about the downsides of the K-pop industry, but their lack of research and petty attitude towards this piece makes them look 0% credible.

This is one of the worst, most racist things I've seen in a long time. One of the worst panels is this one:

Not only is it offensive to the K-Pop industry, but it's completely offensive to the fans too. It makes us look stupid and naive. "But I will get all the merch if you manufacture another one just like him." Not one K-Pop idol can just be replaced by another. It just doesn't work like that. From another news source, I also found this:


The comments about the Spice Girls are absolutely racist too. I don't know where any artist would get the idea that this was ok. And I understand that "you can tell these (idols) apart by their hair..." jokingly means that they look the same, a common phrase non-K-Pop fans say. But that is offensive to everyone. I hope nothing like this happens again. So horrible.

this is not funny. I still remember the day he died and I did not forget that. Basically every show business is cruel and hard to deal with. Its not just Kpop. With fame there is a lot about depression, pressure and more. I also once read that depression is in its highest state at the age of 27 that's why they call it the club 27. A lot of people don't overcome that.

To be honest I'm not mad at Western media reporting the news. When they get it wrong... I understand that they get a lot of facts wrong, they get a lot of simple things wrong. I think they should definitely fact check and image check but I'm often more disappointed than angry.


This comic wasn't a simple mistake. I mean, it was a mistake, but the author and artist actually thought it was a legitimately good idea. I still don't know if I should be angry or if I should still just be disappointed; how pathetic can you be to put your time and effort into something as shitty and cruel as this?

I'm Spanish and this magazine is very famous for it's outrageous and political jokes that are always in bad taste. I agree that it shouldn't be considered humor, but it's useless trying to get the magazine closed. They have had hundreds of controversies in the past and haven't closed yet, so they're not going to close because the K-pop community gets offended.

I'm Spanish. First of all, i would like to say that i don't like this or any other type of black humor, like this magazine always does. Nevertheless, to say politically incorrect things is part of the freedom of expression of every human. That's why i'm against the shutdown of magazines like El Jueves or Charlie Hebdo, as much as i don't like what they do. And that's why El Jueves won't shutdown. It doesn't matter how many people sign the petition. Spanish laws protect that freedom, just like the laws of most of the european countries, and the laws of the Europe Union.

this piece was terrible BUT it did get the desired effect, be it satire or something else. It got your attention and it alarmed and disgusted you. What it says about the entertainment industry and how idols are treated like products just look at the video of a ceo beating an employee posted on akp then the who east light issue, the over sexualization of idols+ boyfriend fantasies that prevent dating edawn hyuna. Plus how mental health here in Korea is still treated like a joke

And yeah what it said about fans is sadly true. As a Korean man i don't understand why fangirls are so possessive over idols and blind to reality. They complain about their idol not getting good treatment like music deals etc, yet still support the company. It's like apple fans they see hear and read about the company's anti consumer practices and downright screwing them over but instead of protesting by not giving them money they keep buying the stuff so the company never changes. Example sm did something where people had to buy 1k$ phone to get into the venue instead of voting with your wallet =boycott they keep buying stuff encouraging them to keep fucking you over companies understand one thing Money don't give them money they will change, keep giving them money and they won't change.

Also im surprised this waz covered as this magazine was eons old and now akp talks about it

I think they hit a nerve with most Kpop fans tbh. They aren't just outraged because Jonghyun was mentioned, they are outraged because it highlights their part in his pain and eventual decision. Fans fuel the very industry that put the immense pressure on him. Fans who continue to buy up every piece of merchandise they can find, funding these companies to keep doing the same thing they have always done.

Okay, I'm from Spain, let me explain. First of all, you won´t even touch their hair with that petty petition, they are El Jueves, a satirical magazine since 1977, which had mock, the govermnet, the royalty, religion to entertain and inform, they had been sue a million times so they don't give a fuck, they are probably laughing at you because you confirmed their imaged of fandom they portrait in the comic, crying little babies. They never said that suicide was funny, or ok, they were talking about the preassure of the industry, they don´t investigate in depth beacuse they don´t want it, they need a magazine a week so they wont stay a month researching every detail of the situation about the suicide. And to the people who are saying they are racist i don´t see how, i really don't, maybe I'm racist too. So grow a little, don´t get triggered so easy and just let it be, because you are only proving them how inmature and stupid you are.

I mean, if they pretty much let the catalan separatist criticize, insult, adoctrinate and call beasts at the rest of the spanish population (and we have it even worse the more than 50% that doesn't want the independence), do you honestly think they're gonna act for that...? .-.

I actually agree with the points this magazine is trying to get across, believe it or not some people are THAT naive to not realize how it works, but the way they dehumanized Jonghyun is just going WAY too far. Also, let's not lie to eachother, the magazine won't close just because our feelings got hurt. These sort of magazines feed off controversy and we just have to deal with it.

Um, in other simple words here, it truly appears that both Korean and international Shawols were rightfully offended after hearing about the problematic comic. And with that being said, instead of either being silent or just considering delivering a very half-hearted apology, well, I believe that it's best if the Spanish magazine in question can just go ahead and deliver a very, very, very sincere apology and vow to NEVER EVER EVER EVER let anything like this happen again sometime in the very near future.

They were dead wrong here.

Mocking Kpop I can understand because people make fun of what they dont know all the time. But mocking a suicide victim is beyond me.

I read some posts on twitter about racism toward asians in the cartoon. I hope everybody who is going to weep and cry about some unknow failed cartoonist displaying racism in a spanish newspaper in an unknown part to Spain even to spanish people will fight as much when their *faves* #bias display racism. Because selective outrage is why no one takes anything seriously these days. Even the death of a young man whose country's lack of mental health lead him to kill himself.

That being said, I wonder who reads that news paper ?? No one under 45 probably.

Hello there. I'm from Spain. This magazine is like the Charlie Hebdo one in France, it's satirical. Try reading it ironically...


They are basically saying that an industry as massive as the Kpop one is exploiting the artists and that fans are the ones supporting that industry. They talk about how idols are mass produced as objects and sexualized for their fans. Really read what is said there, it's an aggressive critique on how things are and the fact that a 27yr old guy committed suicide because he couldn't cope with the pressure.

First of all, how do they plan to shut down a magazine they don't read? 2nd, I think everyone missed the point of the comic they made. They weren't making fun of Jonghyun's death, they were using to explain how harsh the kpop industry is and how it pushes people to certain extremes like sucide. If you had a problem with the interaction between Jonghyun and the other passed artist, then that makes more sense, but that's really it.

They're right though, even though the fans mourned his death, they're the same ones fueling the industry , so their is no insentive for the entire industry to change, meaning it'll keep happening again.

If you want to do a satire on K-Pop, you can do it. BUT you should not mock the SUICIDE of a person in it and then present the fans as stupid, because tell can't tell them apart (Because every group has 48 members, am I right?) . That's just ignorant and really rude and oversteps the boundary of what satire is allowed to do.

We don't care. Us who truly and profundly love Jonghyun know that his light is still shinning no matter what. Love can never be overcome by hate.

What he brought to our lives is SO ENORMOUS that a mockery as stupid and unthoughtful as this, is nothing compared to the thousands of happy days spent thanks to him.

They won't win. What we experienced with him could never be taken away from us.

So, those demons can get lost.

Ps: he didn't even try to enter "Club 27" as he was already 28 in Korean age....

Idiocy at its best. The producer of this piece of crap: why bother to keep your brain in your skull when you don't even use it. Not sure if it's a lack of culture or manners

WTF is this? Sure the artist has a valid point that there is depression and idols are often "manufactured" etc but this is an insult, not a satire. Those are real people he's talking about and he has no right to dishonor them for "satire." This is not how you criticize and industry, this how you spit in the face of idols who work their asses off and kind fans who supported them. How did this even get approved?

Sorry, but everyone mocks the dead: comedians and other entertainers, friends, relatives, and every type of published and social media. This has gone on forever. No amount of anger or petitions will stop it.

This is awful. How could they do that to them. They are not fake plastic dolls. They are real people who care about their fans probably more than themselves. And they don't have to like k-pop, but they don't need to do this.And suicide is not something to be made fun of. Oh, and they SO do NOT look the same.

No, you don't get to generalize like this. If a magazine accepts to publish something like this they are responsible for their lack of empathy and respect, don't blame it on all Spaniards. As a Spaniard myself I am very upset about the fact someone from my own country has written something like this and went to sleep without the lightest remorse. So don't you dare say we are racist. My country has racist people, like all countries, but you don't get to say we are racist as if we were more racist than anyone else.

Instead of everyone just complaining on AKP comment box, I strongly suggest, one of the AKP admin can start a petition: Draft a letter of complaint thru AKP, we can sign a petition and send to the magazine. We have Spanish readers, I am sure they can get the email address for the media to raise our complaint. This can be done from all AKP readers/members on behind of Kpop and Jonghyun's. We all sign the petition form to demand a apology for their nasty journalism, then they know Kpop fans are not to be messed around with. Sorry, my English is not strong so I cannot draft the letter but I am happy to sign the Petition.

OK that's it. That's why things like the Charlie Ebdo magazine incident happens. (And now I'm beginning to believe they can be justified).

NOT saying that S.KOREANS (or K-pop Fans in general) have to like it, this type of twisted 'humor' that is actually intended in a vicious manner. BUT also, S.KOREANS are NOT 'in charge' of SPEECH in any EURO Nations either. It seems to be getting 'stylish' to TROLL K-pop Fans in general. I would say that this current 'Spanish Incident' is NOT worth getting 'worked up' about it overall. Mostly, it indicates that K-pop Music is seen as increasingly *successful* in EURO nations. Which, that gets resented as some kind of 'foreign invasion' and 'cultural destruction' situation ... And also, HENDRIX, JOPLIN, MORRISON, PRESLEY, COBAIN, and others, who 'die strangely' ; seem to quickly become tremendously 'overblown' by News Media. In terms of their actual reality as music performers. These people become 'LEGENDS' who were somehow 'stolen from us' unfairly. When actually, they DRUG OVERDOSED and died stupidly. And speculation centers on what they MIGHT have accomplished IF they had lived (the 'perfect song' of course). More likely, if still alive, they would be OLD and FAT DRUNKS, and insufferable loud mouths like say MADONNA (USA).

I know some may not like your comment even thru it is true. In UK, there is no news on Kpop news as it has no public interest except Psy's Gangnam Song. UK prefer their style of rock and indie music. I was surprised when I read this has featured in Spanish magazine. Not just the terrible sucide content but to be even feature in the magazine, it shows there is public interest in Kpop culture. That is growth. Kpop is growing steadily. The KDrama has more EU fans day by day. The music is on a slower pace.

Maybe these 'suicides' occurred because they were sick of dealing with close-minded, boring, dullards like yourself.
