BoA took to Instagram to write about her thoughts on SHINee's Jonghyun's passing, which has been a shock to many in the K-pop community. In her letter to Jonghyun, she mentions her regrets and hopes that Jonghyun has finally found peace.
"To Jonghyun who was always waiting to see me at every concert. Why did we only talk about work whenever we met? Why did we only talk about how we can work better instead of how we're living? It's really hard to think about sending you off when I think about how lacking I was as a noona and sunbae to you. Today, I couldn't believe I was in the same place as you, but I couldn't see you. I wish you told me about your troubles. And I don't blame you for not telling me. The beautiful lyrics and melodies you created will comfort a lot of people and remain in their memories. Jonghyun, who lived a short life but was a wonderful artist. I hope that you're only creating and singing music for yourself wherever you are. You worked hard, and you did well. 2017.12.18 I remember you."
