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.

SM Entertainment previously announced that the profits of SHINee’s Jonghyun’s album “Poet | Artist”, which was released posthumously, would go to a foundation created by his family. The foundation, which was named “Shiny Foundation” after the title song of the album, was officially established on September 6th.

On the same day, Esquire Korea revealed through an SNS post an interview with Jonghyun’s mother, Lee Eun Kyung, as well as more information about the foundation.

“In my hurting eyes, I can still see many hurting young people.” Chairman Lee Eun Kyung of “Shiny Foundation” conveyed her words with difficulty. Chairman Lee Eun Kyung is the mother of the late Jonghyun, who left this world on December 18, 2017. Shiny Foundation is a small foundation created by Jonghyun’s bereaved family. On September 6th, a ceremony was held in celebration of the establishment of Shiny Foundation in Cheongdam-dong, Seoul. It is a foundation created by a mother who lost her son who she thought would continue to shine like the name “SHINee” to support young and aspiring artists who are on the same path that her son was on. “Until now, when I go somewhere and hear music with my son’s voice playing, I am deeply hurt. However, I am always thankful that there are still people who love my son’s music even though he is no longer with us.” Jonghyun has left this world, but his music still remains. We still remember the forever-shining SHINee’s Jonghyun.
