[Profile] Jonghyun, beloved main vocalist for SHINee

Jonghyun’s untimely death came just a week after he wrapped up his solo concerts, a testament to his successful career that extended beyond the boy band SHINee.

Born on April 8, 1990, the singer was picked up by talent scouts of S.M. Entertainment in 2005 during a singing contest.

After three years of training at the talent agency, he debuted in 2008 as a member of the five-piece boy band SHINee with the EP “Replay.”

Jonghyun stood out as the main vocalist of the group, captivating fans with his powerful voice and dancing ability. He demonstrated his skills outside the band as well, such as through S.M.’s project group S.M. The Ballad.

In 2015, he launched his solo career with the EP “Base,” followed by his first studio album “She Is” the following year.

Jonghyun was successful as a solo artist. He received the bonsang award at the 2016 Golden Disk and was nominated for the best male artist award at the 2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards.

The singer was also recognized for his songwriting, which began with the lyrics for SHINee’s hit song “Juliet.” He wrote the lyrics and melodies for most of the songs in his solo career.

The prolific artist released the special album “Winter Wonderland” in January, followed by the compilation album “Story Op.1” in September.

Jonghyun was a radio DJ as well, hosting a show on MBC radio from 2014 to April this year.

His death came as a surprise, as he had just wrapped up solo concerts from Dec. 9-10.

SHINee is to hold a Japan concert in February 2018. In addition, Jonghyun was to appear on JTBC’s “Night Goblin” that was to be aired Sunday.

The singer had posted on his Instagram account lyrics from a song by Dear Cloud, including “persistent scars and sighs of exhaustion, will they have stopped?” Fans speculated these may have been indications of his imminent death.

Police said they received a telephone call from Jonghyun’s sister at 4:42 p.m. Monday, saying she thought he may have attempted suicide. His final words to his sister were “It’s been difficult for me. Let me go.”

It's been pretty cool to experience the trajectory of korean music in the US. Like, my earliest memory in that regard was probably people who weren't into k-pop hearing about the Wonder Girls, and that was like in 2009 or 2010. Then Girls Generation became a thing, and to a lesser extent like, Big Bang and such. Then PSY had a few hit songs. Now BTS is a legitimate big thing in America. It's pretty interesting.

I remember once, one of my (not korean) friends who is into all the various kpop trends told me "its funny that all the kpop you listen to is like from before 2012" and i thought... well yeah. that was the shit i grew up listening to. Imagine that.

I was going to say Gackt was the first k-pop artist I was aware of, but I just checked and he's j-pop, so jokes on me.

Hearing Gangnam Style on the radio was hilarious. Never heard of any other korean song being played on American radio.

Kpop is awesome! Love it haha.
if only more people would do cover dances solo or even together for the public, that would be even better than paying to get ears blasted off by screaming fans at a concert!
