SHINee Fans In Uproar Upon Discovering JongHyun’s Name Omitted In Seasons Greeting Package

SM Entertainment

SM Entertainment recently received quite a bit of criticism from SHINee fans.

The K-Pop entertainment agency began taking orders for this year’s seasons greetings package, and SHINee‘s seemed to be missing the name of one member who is unfortunately no longer with us in this world.

It turns out that JongHyun, who tragically passed away last year, was not included. This naturally didn’t sit well with SHINee fans. And the strangest part about all of this was that the packages for other SM idol groups such as EXO, Red Velvet, and etc. only had the group name written on them, not of individual members. But SHINee’s for some reason had both the group name and each individual members’ names on them as well. The names Onew, Key, MinHo, and TaeMin can be seen in the photo below.

What do you think of SM Entertainment’s decision to release the package in the way they did? Were they being careless?

What I’m more confused about is why The SHINee members names are on the Greetings packaging but not other groups…?

i miss and love jonghyun with all my heart, and will till the day i die.
shinee wouldn’t be shinee without him and even tho he’s gone, i think they should include him. he didn’t leave the group, he died. just put his name on the packaging in a way that honors his life, don’t exclude him like he’s still alive. it just makes sense. nobody should have to get over his death. he will ALWAYS be with us and the boys, sm doesn’t need to leave him out. just rude.

I understand we all love him but we are not in SM shoes, we don’t know about their situation. last time they didn’t include jonghyun in a concert poster and fans were upset, but fans have explained that it’s because it’s illegal to include someone who can’t attend in the posters and the whole SM company could be permanently banned from performing. there may be trouble with merchandise too.

What happened to Jonghyun was really unfortunate but he is no longer a member of Shinee. It makes sense for them to do this, just as I’m sure Ladies Code doesn’t include Rise or Eun B on anything either anymore as they are no longer members. Shinee fans really need to stop dragging this on and finding every reason to be upset.

Although i do understand your point and what your saying is true. Some people do overreact but some are still really hurt by his death. I do wish they would put something like a rose or something related to him on there because technically he is still a member but he is also not. Even just a touch of his color on there would be great because even though hes gone, Shawols would still like to remember him as a band memeber. (Not trying to start an argument, just wanted to say, i appreciate your point of view too)

I don’t really mean to be rude, and I love Jonghyun with all of my heart, but this was going to have to happen eventuality. Sure, SM could’ve waited another year or two, but it’s really nothing to make a big deal about.
