Jonghyun recently changed his Twitter dp to this:

Translation of the picture of the open letter on Jonghyun's Twitter profile:

Hyunstar about Jonghyun’s new profile picture content: “Jonghyun’s new profile picture is a message stuck on the notice board of a certain university’s sociology department. The title of the essay is: “Not welcomed no matter what we are called”. The essence of the content is to encourage people to stop discriminating against LGTBs.

Kim Eun-ha, the author of this letter got a wind of this and posted up a DM of her conversation with Jonghyun.

How are you so perfect...

Knowing how hyper critical Korean society is, to put his neck out there is incredibly commendable. Not only that but what a great gift of his gay fans too, while some others spout bigotry we have this wonderful being doing what he can using a social platform to reach out and raise awareness, esp among younger koreans.

Gotta admit he was kind of down on my Shinee bias list but he's going to the top with the courage he's shown. hopefully other idols can do it too.

Also not forgetting the issue at hand, there have been some awful setbacks in previous weeks with LGBT societies the world over, with conservatism's stranglehold of Korea tightening I really hope them the best, how awful this earth is that people can't live int he basic way they choose to because of a thousand year old religion still haunting us.

What an awesome, flawless human being he is. This only confirms why he has been my bias since the beginning.

'When will your faves' has never been more appropriate <333

Wow wow wow, I must admit I had lukewarm feelings for Jonghyun in the past but during the last couple of months/weeks I've really seen the light. What an outstanting, amazing human being. More than I expected out of K-Pop tbh.

I knew there was a reason why he was my Shinee fave
suxaholic 14th-Dec-2013 10:42 pm (UTC)
One of many reasons why Shinee is the only group I like from SM

it's hard because this is basic human decency (give or take cultural differences but you know what i mean) but this is like really cool. idk it warms my heart i'm not even into him but now i def can't hate him. on top of that he's talented and made one of my fav iu songs.

oh and that woman is like. what a life to have. she's so brave and that's really cool and it's so awesome she's making a change. to be trans and to be bisexual like. damn.

the problem is that many people still don't have that "basic human decency".
seroquels 14th-Dec-2013 11:07 pm (UTC)
Yet another reason why he's everyone's fave.

I'm happy to see this from an idol and hope that other idols join him, or at least show him support.

Am I the only one bothered by the fact she published their DM convo without consulting him about it? He was considerate enough not to expose her, I think she should have done the same. Does she not know he could get backlash for his support? I'm irked.
kotetsu 15th-Dec-2013 12:12 am (UTC)
yeah, its only u. he already changed his profile pic to the photo before she published the DM. so jonghyun already set himself up for any backlash on his own. even if she hadn't released a pic of the DM, backlash from the profile pic would still exist. honestly, i dont think jonghyun cares either.
tinkwrites 14th-Dec-2013 11:36 pm (UTC)
Woke up to this and I just have to say I'm so proud. He's brave for doing this, and as an idol I'm sure he knows millions of people will see this and maybe change their opinions about homosexual people and their rights. He's an amazing guy.
