On December 20, the main cast of JTBC’s “Untouchable” Jin Goo, Kim Sung Kyun, Go Jun Hee, Park Geun Hyung and Apink’s Jung Eun Ji held a press conference to discuss the drama.
Apink’s Jung Eun Ji; an idol actress; opened up about how she felt about SHINee’s Jonghyun sudden passing. The idol said,
“I thought it was a lie when I first heard the news. To be frank, I wasn’t close friends with SHINee’s Jonghyun sunbaenim, but tears were falling when I read the article.”
The idol-actress also touched on a scary subject and revealed something that scared us all, she said,
“Whats scarier is that Jonghyun’s suicide note was revealed yesterday, my friends and colleagues actually related and identified with the feeling of depression, they felt those emotions eating them away, this scared me and had me think, ‘What if?’”
“I don’t think I can ever express emotions as much as the bereaved family, but I think many of my colleagues and friends feel the same way as I feel. I hope that the Kpop business will grow to encourage physical and mental health, so something like this won’t ever happen again.”
May his soul rest in peace!
