Girls’ Generation‘s Seohyun shared a heartfelt final farewell message to SHINee‘s Jonghyun. Still in disbelief at his death, Seohyun shared her emotions in a letter addressed to her close friend.
“Even though I saw you off on your last journey..I still can’t believe this is real..the Jonghyun I’ve seen for the last 10 years was always bright and passionate.
You were an amazing person that gave laughter and joy to people around you..I respected that you sang with everything you had on stage and loved that when you were the most humane and warm person I knew off-stage.
I always thought of you as such a strong and awesome person..I feel stupid for being so limited in the way I saw you and I regret it..I was so close to you yet why couldn’t I see that side of you..why couldn’t I be there for you..how hard things must have been..
I only found out now that you were enduring pain I can’t even imagine all alone..I’m so sorry..and you did so well..don’t hurt anymore and I pray that you can rest in peace..to the ever shining Jonghyun oppa..I will remember you forever..”
