SHINee's Key showed his fans what a truly caring person he is, and gave his fans some inspiration through his kindness!

One of his fans had posted an image on Instagram of her wearing a SHINee Key-specific bracelet on her wrist, and in the picture you can see scars all over her arm as well as her username which implies that she is a "cutter" or one who mutilates themselves for emotional release.  Key somehow came across this picture, and decided that action needed to be taken.  Key posted on her Instagram a short message telling her about his past where he had gone down a similar path, and how she should be strong and overcome her challenges.

When the fan realized that her favorite idol had personally written her, the fan in disbelief commented, "oh. my. god. @bumkeyk reacts on my pic. i'm shaking, i love you Key, this made my life. i'm going to stop cutting for you. thank you for saving my life." Along with this comment, the fan posted an image of her throwing away her blades that she was using to cut herself in order to show her resolve.

With a simple message and a small amount of time taken from his day, Key showed everyone how a few words of encouragement can make a world of difference to someone else.

A big congratulations to Key for this inspirational and awe-inspiring act, and we also wish the fan good luck in her quest to overcome her challenges!
