SHINee's Jonghyun revealed his admiration for Shinhwa's Shin Hyesung as well as his older sister's long years as a Shinhwa fan.
Jonghyun uploaded a photo of Shin Hyesung on his Twitter with the description, "What? The words I use! Sunbaenim, I respect you. Even your photo is sacred to me."
Shin Hyesung, who is known as the King Se Jong (creator of the written Korean language) of K-pop, spurred on the popularity of abbreviated phrases like kkapnol or surprised and simbaddul, which means "my heart almost fell out". Many young people, including Jonghyun, still use the phrases he created today.
The SHINee member continued, "My sister is a [Shinhwa fan]. Whenever she came back home, she would always have cards with words that ended in 'pa'. I thought she was involved in a gang, which made me kkapnol shimbaddul." It turns out the cards simply had names of Shinhwa members with "pa" at the end to indicate which member she was a fan of.
Jonghyun also addressed his respect and admiration for Shinhwa by stating, "Shinhwa sunbaenims are the best! I'm memorizing all the songs on Shinhwa's 6th album!"
