K-Pop Icon BoA Writes Emotional Letter to Jonghyun Following His Death

BoA is mourning the loss of her SM Entertainment labelmate and friend Kim Jong-Hyun, known as Jonghyun, the SHINee member who tragically died on Monday (December 18).

Following late boy band member’s funeral this week, the 31-year-old “My Name” Korean pop superstar penned a letter to Jonghyun on her Instagram on Thursday (December 21).

“To Jonghyun, who always came to see me in the waiting room at every concert. Why did we always talk about work during our short meetings? Why did we only think about how we could better our work instead of wondering how we’re both living?” she wrote in the emotional letter.

“Today, I couldn’t believe I was in the same place as you, but I couldn’t see you. I wish you would’ve told me at least once. Still, I don’t blame you. The beautiful lyrics and melodies you created will comfort a lot of people and remain in their memories.”

BTS, Girls' Generation, NCT & More Pay Their Respects Following Kim Jong-Hyun's Death

BTS, Girls’ Generation, NCT and more Korean pop acts are paying their respects after the tragic death of SHINee‘s Kim Jong-Hyun, also known as Jonghyun, who was found collapsed on Monday (December 18).

The entertainers were spotted by news cameras arriving to the late singer’s wake. BoA and EXO also reportedly attended.

The four members of SHINee will reportedly be officiating Jonghyun‘s funeral ceremony in a role called “sang joo” (or “chief mourners”), which is traditionally held by the closest male relatives of the deceased. As Jonghyun did not have male siblings, the boy band is stepping up to act as his brothers.

SM Entertainment has also set up a separate memorial for fans.

“In accordance with his family’s wishes, we have set up a separate location for fans to remember and pay their final respects to Jonghyun, who has created many precious memories together….We ask that you send him warm thoughts, so that Jonghyun, the best artist, may be able to rest peacefully,” the agency announced in a statement on the group’s official message board.
