For their Lunar Calendar New Year celebrations, the members of boy band SHINee returned to their homes. Vocal Jonghyun revealed through Twitter his New Year messages to the group.
Along with the caption, “Why won’t you answer my greetings!”, he attached a collection of screenshots of his texts online.
Jonghyun started off his greetings by messaging Key, “Kibum-ah (Key’s Korean name). Are you happy? It’s New Years. Don’t eat too much good food and become ‘fat-Key’. Please answer…”
Next was Minho, “Minho-yah. Did you get to Incheon alright? Have a great holiday and don’t get hurt playing soccer. Tell your mother and your brother that I send my good wishes. Receive lots of luck this year. You answer me too..”
After Minho, was the maknae Taemin. “Taemin-ah. Have a great holiday, receive lots of luck. I’ll borrow your jacket. Answer me….”
Then lastly to Onew, “Jinki-ssi (Onew’s real name). Receive lots of fortune this year. Don’t get injured this year. You always get injured! Please answer me… Leader-nim…”
After receiving no replies, Jonghyun grew frustrated and proceeded to create a group chat with all of the members and said, “Hey members… Answer me… I’m wishing you a year of fortune.. Why won’t you accept my wishes..”
Fans erupted from laughter upon seeing such comical and hilarious posts.
Netizens commented, “SHINee really has a close relationship!”, “I love how Jonghyun’s name for Key is ‘bum’ and Onew’s is Majinki” and more.
Why do you think the members teasingly alienated Jonghyun?! Do you envy SHINee’s close bond?
