This is pretty much my first time doing a post like this. I really hope I did it well, and I apologize for any mistakes. :P

follow up! jjong converses with a fan about misogyny, ect. ect. (it's long)

no fancy picture or anything. but: this is a follow up to the post i made yesterday about jonghyun clarifying on accusations of him being misogynist. tl;dr: he basically had a fan (maybe? they may just be a fan of taemin though) of shinee take up on his offer to voice out their opinion on what had been said and he ended up following them / having a private conversation with them on twitter - which he okayed to be shared and she later did so. it’s a very, very long conversation and, because of that, i’m not going to be have photos of the screencapped conversation attached above to the post but you can find them here: i / ii / iii / iv. (note: jonghyun has unfollowed both now but you can find proof of the follows here.) the translation of the abridged conversation is behind the cut!

source(s): @sullaem (i / ii), @quilliticy (i), @realjonghyun90 (i)

i think it’s kind of a breath of fresh air knowing that jonghyun was not only willing to open up the topic for discussion but actually held a discussion on it with a fan of shinee in order to be helped to understand why what he had said had offended her / to try and better himself and avoid conflict in the future in regards to the topic. like the dude doesn't deserve a pat on the back for being decent / opening up to learning but it's such a rare thing to see from an idol. also, mods! ignore the last post i made. i figured this one was better put together (maybe).

“King of Mask Singer” Cleopatra Makes Surprise Appearance at Kim Yeon Woo’s Concert

The anonymous singer who is being referred to as Cleopatra on “King of Mask Singer” appeared as a guest on Kim Yeon Woo‘s concert.

On July 10, Cleopatra from MBC‘s variety show “King of Mask Singer” sang passionately at Kim Yeon Woo’s concert.

During the concert, Kim Yeon Woo said, “I brought a guest to this concert,” and disappeared backstage. Soon after, Cleopatra appeared, with his usual mask getup. He sang “Phantom of the Opera” with Bae Da Hae, and also sang the songs that he has sung on the hit show.

After his performance, he said, “I’m honored to be a guest for Kim Yeon Woo, who I respect very much,” and added, “I’m very nervous.”

Meanwhile, “King of Mask Singer” is a program where singers sing while wearing masks on stage, eliminating any bias. Cleopatra has won fourth times in a row so far, and there are speculations that he may be Kim Yeon Woo himself.
