Jonghyun fansites shutting down amid outraged SHINee fans
With the news breaking that SHINee’s Jonghyun is dating actress Shin Se Kyung, it wasn’t all that shocking that Shin Se Kyung had to shutdown her Cyworld minihompy due to outraged Jonghyun fangirls. However, another consequence of the relationship is starting to show, as Jonghyun fansites are starting to shutdown one by one.
Four prominent fansites that are now down include:
Additionally, hundreds of fans have already left SHINee’s fancafe and various anti-cafe sites have suddenly begun to prop up.
I assume they knew what they were getting into when they consummated this relationship, but at the rate the outrage is growing, their bond to each other will be tested early and often.

Shin Se Kyung shuts down homepage due to backlash
Actress Shin Se Kyung has shut down her Cyworld mini-homepage after news of her relationship with SHINee’s Jonghyun was reported to the public.
After both agencies confirmed their relationship, fans flooded her mini-homepage with hateful remarks. Surprisingly, a significant majority of fans have shown maturity by leaving comments such as: “Hateful replies will only make SHINee look bad” and “Let’s try to respect Jonghyun’s private life.”
Still, a portion of the fanclub refuse to listen to reason and left venomous messages: “Who do you think you are, hitting on him?” and “You xxx, you think you match Jonghyun?”
Shin Se Kyung eventually shut down her homepage on the afternoon of October 27th.
Netizens observing the tirade expressed their disappointment with the entire situation, commenting, “It’s good that she shut it down. She shouldn’t have to read those kinds of comments“, “How are they acting any different from TaJinYo?”, and “Fans should respect their artist’s decision.”
