Former U-Kiss Members Xander & Dongho Reunite!



Yup! The reunion is real! Had a FUN weekend with our maknae Dongho!
Was really glad to see our baby boy matured so much. I must say, I still can’t believe he’s a father~ haha~ Still so young and fresh!
Had a great time catching up and talking about the past. Yea, talked about so much 💩 too.😏😂 But it felt like just yesterday with all the sweet memories from the past. Super nostalgic.😌 But well, we are both satisfied with where we are now so that makes us really happy.
Who said separate paths would separate us? Hope we meet up again very soon. Perhaps with other members too? Well, let’s see if it’s fate. :)
Let’s continue to work HARD! FIGHTING!!

If anyone is curious about the "Junho" reference, it's a character Alexander plays in this Flipino drama called 'My Korean Jagiya'

[Breaking News] SHINee’s Jonghyun Has Passed Away; Police and SM Confirm



Police have confirmed that SHINee’s Jonghyun (27) has passed away, and are currently investigating the singer’s death.

According to the police and fire department, Jonghyun was found unconscious in a residence on December 18 at approximately 6:45 p.m. KST. Emergency responders performed CPR and the singer was immediately rushed to the hospital, but in the end, Jonghyun was unable to be revived and was pronounced dead.

The police arrived at the scene at a report of disappearance filed by Jonghyun’s older sister, who reportedly received a final text from Jonghyun that led her to believe he would be attempting suicide.

At the residence, which, according to a source, was not Jonghyun’s own home but a place he had reserved for two nights, police found what appears to be burned coal, leading them to suspect the death was by suicide. However, police are still investigating the matter and have not confirmed the cause of death.

Jonghyun’s agency, SM Entertainment, reportedly cannot be reached at the moment.

I'm stunned and numb with disbelief.  I didn't want to believe it when I saw a mutual mention it on tumblr, and though someone was just playing some kind of sick joke, until I saw tons of news outlets confirming the information when I searched for it.

Edit OP note: I removed the text that Jongyun sent his sister, once it was pointed out that that shouldn't be something that gets spread around.  I'm sorry that I didn't realize that originally, and I apologize if it upset anyone further.

Jonghyun Healing Post



Many of us are still reeling from the news. Jjong clearly touched so many and has been a source of healing to lots of us. I thought maybe we could share some of Jjong's most healing compositions, or whatever song he did that touched you. His greatest joy was his music, his voice was a gift from the heavens and I hope this is a fitting way to help remember him.

Share your favourite song in the comments. My personal favourite was this Maxwell cover. Love you Jonghyun.
