SHINee Jonghyun’s family is celebrating his life through art in a festival organized by their charity, Shiny Foundation. A post on their official Instagram alerted fans to the information and application process for the festival.

The concept of the festival follows a theme on “the story we will fulfill together”. They’re asking aspiring participants to tell the story of what Jonghyun had left behind for them, as well as the story that they will continue to write about.

The event will be held at SMTOWN Theatre on December 17th, the day before Jonghyun’s first death anniversary.

Since the announcement, fans have been brainstorming possible stories to join the cause as they fondly remember all that Jonghyun has done for them.

SMTOWN has begun receiving pre-orders for SM’s “SEASON’s GREETINGS 2019” package but some fans are seemingly upset about their post in regard to SHINee.

While all the other artists including Red Velvet, NCT, EXO, Super Junior and TVXQ did not contain the members’ names on the cover…

SHINee’s “SEASON’S GREETINGS 2019” included the names of the four SHINee members excluding the late Jonghyun on the cover in bold lettering.

Nonetheless, some have been defending SM and encouraging each other not to make too big of a deal for the sake of the other SHINee members.

The agency claims that they were unaware of the images.

The South Korean band, The Rose, has been in the center of attention for using Jonghyun’s Instagram pictures in their latest music video

Images made by netizens that compare the images in the music video and images from Jonghyun’s Instagram show that the pictures indeed look alike.

The scene which includes these images is from The Rose’s latest music video called “She’s In The Rain”.

Fans have become offended by The Rose’s use of Jonghyun’s Instagram pictures as it seems to have been used in “She’s In The Rain” as a means of representing sadness or depression.

In addition, they have not yet stated whether they received permission from Jonghyun’s family to use them or not.

Moreover, fans were upset that Jonghyun’s images were being used as “decorations” for their music video, claiming that the images did not fit the narrative of their song either.
