On October 28, SHINee made a guest appearance on KBS 2TV's 'Hello.'
On this day, one man talked about never receiving love or attention from his mother. He said, "My one and only mother has no interest in me and even though I do all sorts of aegyo, she curses at me."
Jonghyun, however, revealed that he had the complete opposite problem. He said, "My mother was the director of a day care center and still treats me like a child."
Formal language in Korean, when spoken in the right tone, could sound like baby talk. Jonghyun said that her mother would speak "formally" to him, saying things like, "Jonghyun, did you eat?" However, it would come off like she were speaking to a young child. He said, "I'm twenty-four years old, not four years old."
In addition, whenever she would call him to a meal, she would attach endearing phrases in front of his name so she would essentially be saying things like "My lovable Jonghyun" and "the freshly woken up Jonghyun."
Addressing his mother through the show, Jonghyun said sweetly, "Please just say 'my lovable son.' I love you."
