Shawols and fans around the world have come together and started a petition in the memory of SHINee Jonghyun.
The petition was started by an international fan early this morning and has already achieved over 100 thousand signatures.
The petition is hoping to bring a change to the industry by providing more mental health support to all artists. It goes into detail with the following:
“After what we saw that happened with SHINee’s Jonghyun, it’s been time since long ago, to ask for the needed mental health support the people in this career need, because they are human beings, and mental health issues affect everyone and should not be ignored. With this we want to ask all entertainment agencies to make a plan or program to monitor mental health in their employees not for the company’s interests, but for their artists’ well-being and a back up for the employees that the program won’t be used against them and harm their careersbut to help them get back on their feet.
Of course we also want this mental health support to be extended to all industries, because mental health issues are not just imagination, they are diseases in their brain, that deserve attention just like cancer.”
Fans have also started to trend the hashtag #RosesForJonghyun on Twitter as well as changing their profile pictures to a hand holding a rose in his memory.
