SHINee fans are currently not happy with their idol group’s agency SM Entertainment as former member JongHyun, who tragically took his own life back in December 18th, 2017, was not included in the birthday schedules of SM idols for this year.
A similar incident like this occurred a while back as well when SHINee fans were unhappy to see JongHyun left out in the seasons greetings as well.
However, the recent one seems to have upset fans a lot more than the previous one.
i am beyond angry, i don’t even have any words anymore. SM will continue to ignore jonghyun all they want. no birthday. no congrats on the awards but whatever. shawols have shown him more love than SM ever have and will.

The shinee acc did post on his birthday last year, they just can’t use his name/image on products, since they did that video for him I thought they would still post his achievements and bday but they are proving me wrong -.- at this point I demand a better explanation

They’re trying to gradually erase his existence from SM and SHINee. But they don’t realize that he’s alive in every single fan he touched. I stopped caring about SM’s involvement, or lack thereof, months ago. We keep Jonghyun’s memory alive and celebrate his life. ? pic.twitter.com/cvt9UdOQYK

Do you agree with the fans?
