My fans call me ‘Peach,’ so when her new song came out, I called to ask her about it, and she confirmed that the song was for me.”

Especially because her family wants the funeral and mourning to be conducted in peace, I want to ask everyone to refrain from spreading possible pics that pop up anyway. Just d o n t

and they will pop up. jonghyun's family publicly asked for his funeral to remain private too but media was still there like vultures on the day of.

And then people got hate comments from how they reacted on camera🙄🙄🙄

I was reading about what happened to Yeri after this news broke and ngl lots of shit has disgusted me wrt kpop but that hit a new low. The girl was fucking GRIEVING.
byeolbyeol 15th-Oct-2019 10:40 pm (UTC)
they treated yeri like she'd committed a crime for trying to [tw]get closer to the car jonghyun's family and the rest of shinee had put the coffin into when it's clear why she did that. people forget how close they were. it's obvious that he was like an older brother to her and he started publicly showcasing their friendship (like generally hyping her up as a person) after that incident where she was harassed on vlive. she was barely eighteen at the time. i figure it was one of the first big losses in her life, if not the first. so, yeah, she had a reason to be distraught then and distant for awhile after. then again, i don't know why i'm surprised. people have also given taeyeon shit for it when she's never really come back from it.

Tabloid journalism actively encourages the suspension of humanity and morality purely for entertainment of the masses and it's sickening
welljustguess 17th-Oct-2019 01:07 pm (UTC)

What. There's so many footage of it that I thought it was open for public, like public have access but from faraway 🤦‍♀️

byeolbyeol 18th-Oct-2019 04:07 pm (UTC)
yeah, that's what a lot of people have thought but nope. :/ media just barged in and disrespected their wishes.
psharp10 15th-Oct-2019 06:38 pm (UTC)
honestly, i'm ready to block and report anyone who spreads it
to this day i occasionally see ones from december 2017 come up and it's just horrible, i don't want to see, it's not for us to see
byeolbyeol 15th-Oct-2019 10:34 pm (UTC)
i do too. it's horrifying. admittedly, i don't see them as much as i used to, but there was a point last year where you couldn't search anything related to shinee without seeing one pop up. i'm kind of numb to seeing them now because of it, but i'll never be able to forget their faces in them and i wish it's something no one had to remember seeing.

lLoking at pics like that makes me feel so fucking gross, it's incredibly violating.

I hope people will be respectful.
