It's what happens when a hater like kizaru_hijin decides to be a spiteful and disrespectful troll. He actually called Jonghyun stupid for committing suicide, but then pretended to be a shawol just to get upvotes. Can you believe the nerve of this guy? Jonghyun deserves way better than this.

most likely anpanman with her multiple accounts like longan_lychee, bangdaejae etc, one of the most disgusting sexists this world has ever seen. she always wished male celebrities to die, because according to her, they were all criminals and rapists, who could avoid every punishment because they were famous.

even when jonghyun died, she made fun of his death, thats how disgusting she is...

but when she realized that no one likes such a disgusting hater, she tried to act nice, just for some likes and now, she uses his death for some likes, while she couldnt care less about him or any male celebrity.

she called herself a shawol a bit later, when he died, but just a few weeks before, she asked for shinees disbandment, because of onews, according to her a rapist, small accident...

and yet you, one of the most disgusting sexist piece of shits who wishes all male celebrities to die, made fun of his death with your longan_lychee account and loved how han seo hee used his death to get some attention for herself, just like you loved it, how she made fun of top, while he was suffering after his suicide attempt, which you called fake too and that he just said that to get some attention...


you should learn when to stop trying so hard to seem nice, just to get some likes, when youre one of the most disgusting sexist trash we have ever seen here. according to you all male celebrities are criminals and rapists, still quoting your own words.

you also proved countless times how you are longan lychee, starting with the moment you created this anpanman account and reported me for "harassing" you for many years, when your account was just 1 day old(which we all can still see even now, if we take a look at the forums, where the dates are written, of the day of when this account was created and when you made your report), not to mention your stupidity with mixing up your accounts and accidentaly replied with anpanman to comments directed to longan lychee, and also instantly upvoting yourself all the time...


seeing how you still use his death for some likes and attention, while you were happy that he died, shows, that youre just as disgusting as you always were and always will be...

Hi everyone, I hope you're all having a fantastic day and if not I hope it gets better! Now I'm sure you see the wall of text above, right? Yep, you got it, that's a delulu right there, the absolute worst kind. It's hostile, deranged and probably looks like a blobfish in real life.


"How can we stop this rat face delulu, noobs!?" You may be wondering and I'll tell you how, It's simple! All you have to do is just I G N O R E that bad vibe, negativity bringer and go about your day 😄


OR whenever the weirdo who you JUST KNOW has black dirt under their fingernails comments or replies, just copy and paste my blobfish paragraph each and every time 😏 It'll be fuming, eager to furiously type up a reply with it's teeth clenched and tears streaming down it's cheeks 😂

I hope all those who were closest to him are surrounded by love and support right now. Sometimes these anniversaries can feel like they hit as hard as when it happened.


I'm still heartbroken over the whole situation one year on, but today I'm making an effort to listen to some of his work with SHINee and appreciate the talented and passionate individual he was in life, his bond and creative chemistry with SHINee, and all those things beyond his illness and his troubles. I just hope if he's out there somewhere still, it makes him happy to have his music live on.

Gosh, it's been a year. Where did the time go. I have Shinee's songs on my playlist but I can't listen to them. I tried, but the sadness and sense of loss are still great. Same with Chester. My teenage, pink glasses wearing self is still mourning their loss. An adult me is just sad at the thought of years ahead without them. I should've gone to their concerts when I had the chance. This will forever be heartbreaking. You did well Jonghyun. You did really well.

I know that most people were fans of SHINee because of Jonghyun’s death. Which makes me very disappointed that it took someone death, for them to start “stanning” them. I was an ARMY before I tried getting to know them. Him and Taemin were my biases, but I was listening to more of Jonghyun’s songs. I cried in class when I was listening to one of his songs. When I found out that he died, I was in my first period class. I cried a little bit, because I didn’t want to draw attention to myself. I cried a lot when I got home, though. Unlike other people, who started to be a fan, I stopped trying to get to know them. It was because of his death, that I stopped stanning them. I only stan Taemin now. It would hurt too much for me to know more about the group as a whole

WHAT WAS WRONG WITH KIM JONGHUYN? NOTHING, HE WAS SIMPLY GIFTED.


Late K-pop star Kim Jonghyun showed all the signs of being gifted, a type of personality that has only recently been studied by psychologists. Gifted people share most of these characteristics: very high intelligence, with a different way of thinking (use of concepts more than linear thought, perception of complex relationships), heightened capacity to appreciate beauty and wonderment, aware of things others are not, craving for sharing ideas (engage in intense intellectual discussions), inner urge to fulfill their own expectations (guilt and low self-esteem when goals are not reached, even if nobody else knows), great sense of humor (subtle meanings, intricate puns), self-taught, perfectionist, extensive vocabulary, remarkable abilities with numbers and language, learn new things rapidly, long attention span, wide range of interests, high degree of energy, can easily multitask, know things without learning. They are self-disciplined, tolerant of complexity, imaginative and original, highly curious, artistic, creative, perceptive, flexible and adaptable.


They are often seen as quirky, eccentric, non-conforming, too sensitive, too intense (making them ‘’burdensome’’, as Jonghyun said about himself), prone to question authority but sticking to the rules if they accept them as logical. They are unable to switch off their thinking, they are introverts and need periods of contemplation; they are their worst critics and tend to dislike themselves; they long for understanding. People are often hostile towards them and find their behaviour tiresome. Very lucid, overly sensitive, they tend to isolate themselves to prevent getting hurt, can feel socially inadequate (often with a vague sense of inferiority), are friendly but have no close friends (or maybe one), are often depressed, and feel extremely lonely.


According to his parting letter, Jonghyun seemed to have known about being gifted, but his doctor was incompetent. He needed guidance; the use of mainstream psychology and medication does not help; being gifted is not an illness, and should not be diagnosed and treated as a mental issue, as the source of the unease is mostly due to an unconventional mode of thinking. Jonghyun bravely opened up in his songs, his book, in some interviews (especially on the TV show ‘’4 Things Show’’ in 2015), but he wrote “I wanted people to notice but no one did. They’ve never even met me so of course they don’t know I exist.” He claimed "Acceptance Over Understanding" as his motto, but to a gifted person, that is not quite enough.


Entertainment agencies would unknowingly be attracted to this type of personality (intelligent, perfectionist, disciplined, multi-talented). While gifted people make up about 2% of the population, there is probably a concentration of them among young artists, and fame could be the hardest thing for them to handle. One can only hope they can be made aware of how special and precious they are.


So what was wrong with Kim Jonghyun? My guess is that, among other things, he was exhausted, and probably hated himself for not performing as well as he could in his own eyes. Extremely lonely, he had been too long in his ‘’JONGHYUN the Idol’’ mode, and could not see his way back to being simply Kim Jonghyun, the man he wished people would know and love.
