Following SHINee‘s Key and SM Entertainment, f(x)‘s Amber has posted a personal letter to Jonghyun. Amber has been quiet since Jonghyun’s sudden death, not posting or sharing anything on her social media.
This letter follows Jonghyun’s emotional funeral, which was held earlier today.
“I laughed because of your jokes. I dried my tears because of your advice and I became brave because of your courage.
When I was embarrassed, you didn’t judge me, you embraced me and tried to understand my poor Korean.
When people joked that we were twins, I was secretly proud inside because I wanted to become a great person like you…
Thank you… thank you for giving me the chance to become your little sister.
I will become the ‘Amber’ you can be proud of. Our Jjong oppa, you did well. I love you.”
— f(x)’s Amber
Amber’s relationship with Jongyun was well known in the industry. As she mentions in her letter, Jonghyun and Amber were nicknamed the “Dinosaur Siblings” because of how similar they looked.
Every idol who has written a message to Jonghyun or about Jonghyun has shared a common theme: Jonghyun was the most incredibly kind friend imaginable.
