Our basement was ruined by ground water and insurance refused to help cover damage. We’ve spent months rebuilding and my office only just got put back together. It’s been a rough few months and there is still much work to be done, without enough hours.
I have much to write about but for now I will remain in hiatus. I’m struggling with the absence of Onew and now the death of our beloved, Kim Jonghyun. Shinee is my happy place.
Since Onew disappeared on August 12, 2017 along with the fear of losing Shinee in my life had been difficult. If you read my blog you know I love every member of the band. Minho and Onew are my 1st’s, but I love each of them.
I was focused on fighting for the return of our Onew as, I believe many Shawols were. We didn’t see the many signs our Jonghyunnie left us. I often wonder if he sat in that lonely apartment wondering if we would guess in time. We didn’t.
His voiceless spirit will be missed in my life. We are blessed he left behind such beautiful lyrics, music and visuals to remember him by.
In tribute to him, here are a couple of my favorite videos of this legend. The first is my long time favorite and the performance that made me love him.
Y Si Fuera Ella – I can’t bring this up on my blog, so please go to YouTube and search this song with Jonghyun live. You will love his interpretation of this Spanish song. Haeya, I believe the Korean name for Ella. The name is Hae and ya shows respect.
The second was performed at his last concert, right before he died. This concert was scheduled for a later date (as I understand), but Jonghyun moved the date up to December 3rd & 4th of 2017.
Moon – Type into YouTube Inspiration concert Jonghyun Moon. He loved everything to do with the moon, and he used it as a visual for this song. The dancing, vocals and visuals will show you his total talent.
Then on the early morning, around 4 a.m., December 18, 2017 Jonghyun took his life…
You did well Jonghyun…
