“I met you when I was 19 so it’s been nearly 5 years now. When I called you after practice and complained about how hard it was you always listened and I could meet up with you over drinks comfortably and talk to you openly.

Oppa, you always gave me advice and scolded me. I don’t know why but I depended on you a lot. I liked you a lot and I told you all the time that you were a good person. You were always someone amazing, and someone I had to learn a lot from. I used to see you often when I was down or bored but after I was in this controversy I couldn’t call you..I admit I was embarrassed ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ but I should have.

I should have called you and kept badgering you to meet up. I regret it so much that I’m going crazy. I had no idea that you were having a hard time. Even as I’m writing this, I can’t believe it I want you to say it’s all a lie and come back to life. Oppa this really isn’t right. Whenever I said I wanted to die, you would scold me. Why would you die. I really don’t understand. I’m so angry. How can you be like this. I want to go back in time just a day and beat you out of doing this if I have to.

I know I can’t, that’s why it makes me even more sad and crazy. I always complained about everything to you and I didn’t know what you were going through.

This whole situation is terrible…I miss you oppa..I’ll come see you soon. I will come quietly so it doesn’t cause you harm…I’ll see you soon..it must be cold..just wait a little bit oppa.”

I treasure the memory.

Thanks to this performance, this song, I wanted to stand on stage faster and practice harder.

Thank you for giving me strength.

No words can express how I feel right now.”

I still remember clearly the sparkle in his eyes while we talked about which parts of songs we liked and why we loved an artist or a song.

That’s why I feel more empty.

We need to be there for those who lost Jonghyun tonight.

As a fan and someone who loved music together, I pray he’ll rest in peace.”

“We really weren’t a great fit. Our thoughts never aligned and we fought emotionally beneath the surface. You bothered me and I got frustrated. I didn’t understand why you wanted to work with me still for every album. Do you know how angry I got because of ‘Lonely’ this year? ㅎ I wanted to make up with you over drinks sometime but you really are a jerk you make me feel sorry until the end. I never knew I’d miss the days we made small talk at the studio. I’m sorry. I should have done better by you. Rest in peace. I’ll see you later. You did well.”
