On December 19, SM Entertainment posted a message in remembrance of SHINee’s Jonghyun.
The agency wrote, “Jonghyun, who loved music more than anyone, who enjoyed performing onstage, and who loved communicating with his fans through music, is the greatest of artists. We will always remember him.”

In light of Jonghyun’s tragic passing on December 18, many SM artists have chosen to cancel their previously scheduled events and appearances. As reported earlier, SHINee’s Key, Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon, H.O.T’s Kangta, and NCT members Jaehyun and Johnny have all canceled or postponed plans.
Additionally, EXO’s Suho and f(x)’s Luna announced that they would not be participating in the press call for their musical on December 19.
We offer Jonghyun’s friends and family our deepest condolences during this painful time.
