Talk to me.....
7 years ago, we found out that, Jonghyuns novel Skeleton Flower: Things That Have Been Released and Set Free, (or Diphylleia Grayi) as is more widely known, was being released. Officially on October 2nd., to coincide with his new Agit Concert.
I want to tell you a little about it…it’s a beautiful novel , with 13 chapters, (one, chapter 13, is titled author’s note).
Aside the song 🎵, it holds such in-depth meaning to me. Consequently, my name tag elsewhere is Diphylleia Grayi because of this, since 2015.
Jonghyun spent 2 year’s previous to its release, keeping notes everyday, and taking photographs which were included in the book, by mixing his writings to coincide with the 12 songs he used from his album Story Op, and songs he wrote for SHINee, and these were used as the chapter titles like ‘No More’, ‘Honesty’, ‘Diphylleia Grayi’, ‘I’m Sorry.’
It was a novel about a couple that had been romantically involved together spanning 5 years.
The genius of his book, and which was different to other romance novels, is that they broke up at the beginning of the book, he explained, (finding it funny) 😁, in October 2015, at his first of many, Agit concerts, at SM Town called ‘The Story by Jonghyun’.
I laugh, but, I always wonder if he wrote about himself, he breaks up with her, however starts to feel sad he has done that.
Anyway, as he explained about his book, (laughing) as to why would he write such a romance, (as he wasn’t into dating!)If you knew Jonghyun then, this was widely known that he veered away from romance, despite him calling himself a romanticist. In a way true I guess, considering his lyrics.
At this concert, Jonghyun found it funny, whilst he was doing hos best impression of an author about to start writing his book, and explained that they broke up at the beginning of the story. 😁 He looked out to the audience to him Mama , and smiled saying she was giving a bitter smile, doing the funniest impression of her, and her pondering this, ‘26 year old son … nothing romantic happens to him. Although he has his fans that love him. He said she would have many thoughts on their way home, because her son himself wasn’t dating.
Jonghyun then read a passage of the story to his audience.
He then sang a selection of the songs.
I personally bought two copies of the book - one to read, and one to preserve intact like the delicate flower.
A favourite passage from the book is this below . It means a lot to me.
'How far can I go? And how long can you be with me?'
He asked her. She was silent. All she did was hug him quietly.
And I ask you as well.
‘How far have I come? And since when have you been with me?'
‘I’ve forgotten the meaning of ‘I love you’
I love you I love you’
I sincerely hope my explanation has bought Jonghyun closer to you.
Please do not copy my words I wrote above.
It’s your 7th anniversary of Story Op:1 today. Of course you know my favourite is Diphylleia Grayi.
A flower so delicate like you petal.❤️
