In a recent episode of KBS 2TV’s 1 vs 100, SHINee’s Jonghyun made an appearance where he shared his concerns about his future and the instability of income as an idol.
On the February 3rd episode, MC Jo Woo Jong asked Jonghyun, “You’re already in your 20s, how concerned are you about old age?” to which Jonghyun sincerely replied, “I worry. Being an entertainer isn’t a steady job with a fixed income. So I think about it.”
He adds, “That’s why I participated in a lot of the producing work as well. I think perhaps later all these experiences will add up and aid me.”
Jonghyun is currently promoting his title track “Deja Boo,” and has already won several music show awards to prove his solo debut’s success.
