Well hello there.
Nicole, 17, Canada. Trying to find my way to Korea.
This blog is mostly kpop, but also my personal blog.
I mostly reblog SHINee and EXO, but other groups will probably appear too.
Feel free to follow! Follow me and I'll check out your blog. ♥
the same jonghyun who, when people complained about internet war being too ~homoerotic~, changed his twitter icon to him and taemin and basically said “thank you to those who liked me even if you don’t like me anymore. peace out dude”
the most douchebag thing to date he’s done!! is told this fan who sent him a private ufo: “cry out loud once. look at the mirror & shake it off. i’ve cried like that before & others will have times like that too. cheer up. you’re not alone.”
most douchebags have Intense Feelings after watching childrens movies. jonghyun is one of them, of course. after watching rise of the guardians, he said, “but the biggest reason of life ‘the world gives back as much as you give’ doesn’t change even when you grow older. it’s not important whether there really is or isn’t a santa who gives presents to kids who don’t cry. what matters is that in order to receive santa’s present which was prepared by my parents, i tried to be a nicer kid and i got a present. in that moment, santa does exist. i have to keep my will, determination, and belief as i live.”
jonghyun is a huge douchebag and he’s really superficial and pretty much an awful person. don’t become this person’s fan because he will ruin your life.
it kinda felt like a good time to bring this back + add on to it, so:
when university student kim eun ha was trying to get an open letter she wrote about the intolerance, abusive and bullying she’s faced at her school, jonghyun changed his profile photo on twitter to a picture of her letter, ultimately revealing his support of the lgbtqia community. now, the dude doesn’t deserve a cookie for being a decent human being but it was the way that he approached eun ha privately with respect and concern over both: a) not wanting to draw negative or overwhelming attention to her and b) not wanting to steal any spotlight from her, that stuck out the most.
when shinee’s manager yelled at fans to stop taking photos of the group after a performance jonghyun “yelled" back at them to keep on taking as many as they wanted to.
when jjong played a rough copy of “gloomy clock” for iu she loved it so much that she asked him to personally sell it to her. jjong immediately denied her offer for cash and told her that he’d give it to her for free, essentially.
he vehemently (like…really) went out of his way to both promote and show how proud he was of taemin when he debuted as a solo act. he even cried about it apparently like taemin was a baby bird flying free from his nest for the first time or something.
when onew hurt himself during “everybody” promotions he did his best to take care of him at a recording (both explicitly and quietly).
he always goes out of his way to promote labelmates, examples being: f(x) during their “red light" promos (he also promoted then via twitter for "electric shock" and "rum pum pum pum" and krystal once stated that he bought 10+ copies of their "nu abo" mini), toheart when they debuted, exo, henry, redvelvet, tvxq, ect. he’s also given nice compliments to taeyeon and chen, and given sweetshoutouts to sunny/her radio show.
