Donika Sterling Meets SHINee and Super Junior

 June 20, 2012

Super Junior and SHINee had a Special Meeting with an American Girl ‘Donika Sterling’!

SHINee had a special meeting with a terminally ill girl ‘Donika Sterling,’ who loves KPOP music. 

Donika visited S.M.Entertainment in Cheongdam-Dong on the 20th (today) at 11:30 p.m. and met SHINee in person.  

With the support of Herbert Black, the CEO of American Iron & Metal Company Inc. in Canada, Donika could come to Korea on June 16th. Donika has said that she wanted to meet SHINee and Super Junior since she was nourishing her hope in life by listening to KPOP music. 


On this day, Taemin, a member of SHINee, said “I was very glad to hear that Donika came to Korea to meet us. I was deeply impressed when Donika said that she gets encouraged by our music and I hope she can cheer up,” and Key said “I’m so happy that we had a special time with Donika today and we would like to invite her if we hold a concert in New York.”

Donika also said “I’m really excited now. It is nice to meet SHINee of my dream and very glad that I gained a great experience,” and she impressed Taemin, Donika’s favorite member, by giving a letter to him. 

Also, SHINee brought gifts for Donika including a doll, albums, photo book, pictures, etc., even Taemin gave his own bracelet to Donika. After that, SHINee sang ‘Ring Ding Dong,’ Donika’s favorite song, for her and created a warming atmosphere. 

Meanwhile, Donika also met Super Junior at the music video shooting, which was held in Namyangju, Gyeonggi-do on the 17th.  Super Junior members gave Donika a specially prepared gift and album and performed ‘SORRY, SORRY' for her.  


this is so amazing, I'm so glad she got to meet them :")

Oh lord, I know. Some people are so insensitive. I've seen some people even say disgusting remarks like "so I just have to act really sick to meet my favourite idol?" Like really people?

That fanmeet with SHINee looks like a press conference…o_O No, no, SM wouldn't ...

This is wonderful, though! I sure she thought this would never happen but it totally did! Wishing her the best in the future <3

I watched a news clip about this and I almost cried. It was really touching and sweet, especially when Taemin gave her a bracelet that he wears all the time.

i'm so happy for her! i'm glad sm actually went ahead and made this work, those pictures are adorable and she looks really happy

Seriously Taemin is so amazing. For him to give her his special bracelet...I got so teary eyed. Shinee was so careful and attentive.

Suju also looked sweet and I'm sure they have to keep their meetings more secret since they are having a comeback.

The girl was so cute and I'm kinda sad this was a huge press conference.she kinda looked terrified but of course SM would. Her doctor is so kind to make this happen! I hope this sad situation isn't used to pimp the hallyu wave or whatever....

That´s really sweet and i´m really happy for her, but makes me a tiny bit unconfortable all that media and stuff. Still she is probably the happiest girl in the world rn :D

This was very touching and I'm so, so glad she got to meet them :')
trancexperiment 20th-Jun-2012 08:41 pm (UTC)
this was so touching! i almost got tears in my eyes, the press and media was a bit too much but she looked so happy.

my oppas are wonderful people omg
goldynchickie 20th-Jun-2012 08:43 pm (UTC)
I was tearing up a little when I saw this in the morning. I'm happy she got to meet them but wish it was not under these circumstances.

Little annoyed that this wasn't made more private. Really SM? A press conference?
redgreendress 21st-Jun-2012 03:06 am (UTC)
Yeah, inviting all that press is really tasteless. If you're gonna do something nice, be discreet about it *is clueless about human nature*
lee_chikin 20th-Jun-2012 08:44 pm (UTC)
I'm so happy for her, really. She seemed delighted.
But I'm oh so annoyed at those people on tumblr that conveniently forgot about donika's existence and made tons of gifs/edits of Oppas' new haircuts for the 6th album. Seriously I wanted to basically bitchslap tumblr and/or my dashboard.
