December 19, the day following the tragic death of SHINee’s Jonghyun, Dear Cloud’s Nine9, a close friend of the singer, released his final letter, which he had left in her care and asked her to reveal to the public should he ever leave the world.
Nine9 says that though she had reservations about posting the letter, she discussed it with Jonghyun’s family, and she believes that Jonghyun had already had her concerns in mind when he entrusted her with his final words. She says, “This is the last thing I can do for him.”
The full post by Nine9, including Jonghyun’s message, is linked below in page 2.
Earlier today, police officially concluded their investigation into the singer’s death, and confirmed that the death was by suicide. In accordance with the wishes of Jonghyun’s family, they will not be performing an autopsy.
Jonghyun’s funeral will be held quietly, and SM will be arranging a separate location where fans can pay their final respects.
