Setelah surat terakhir mendiang Jonghyun ‘SHINee’ dirilis oleh sahabat dekatnya ke publik, banyak Kpop idol merasa bahwa ungkapan perasaan Jonghyun bisa mereka pahami dan rasakan dengan baik.
Dilansir dari Koreaboo, Eunji ‘Apink’ mengaku bahwa banyak teman dan rekan seleb Koreanya merasakan depresi yang sama layaknya Jonghyun.
Saat ditanya pendapatnya tentang kematian Jonghyun ketika menghadiri acara konferensi pers untuk drama Untouchable, Rabu (20/12), Eunji pun mengutarakan keresahannya.
“When I first heard the tragic news [of Jonghyun’s passing], I hoped that it was a lie— a false report. I wasn’t personally close with Jonghyun but I still feel for him because he was my colleague.
I teared up after hearing the news despite the fact that we weren’t close. The scary thing is, after his suicide letter was released yesterday, friends and celebrities around me revealed how closely they related to his words.
Looking at these idols who said they understand his feelings of depression and being eaten away by it [inside], I couldn’t help but think ‘maybe’ and that scared me.
I can’t express the emotions that the members and the family must be feeling but I think many in the industry share my feelings.
I hope that such events will not repeat itself in the future and that the idol industry and the entertainment industry in general can be one where everyone is healthy both in mind and body.”
Rasanya harapan kita sama dengan Eunji ya, girls. Semoga kesadaran tentang penyakit mental semakin luas agar kejadian yang menimpa Jonghyun enggak terjadi lagi pada siapa pun di masa depan.
