JHJ and Friends

Sing-e passed away at age 13

Sing-e, Jo Hyun Jae‘s trusty companion for many years, passed away last September 12. She was 13 years old at the time of her death. I was so sad when I learned that she passed away last month, but at that time I couldn’t make a post about it as my mind was so engrossed with my own problems. I hope this post is not too late to show my appreciation for Sing-e. Thank you, Sing-e, because of you we came to know Hyun Jae a little bit more.
Editor: I can’t recall if JHJ ever mentioned Sing-e’s gender. I have always assumed that she was a female, so I will just continue with that assumption.
This news was conveyed by Hyun Jae’s eldest sister in a post in her IG account last September 18. Below is the message that accompanied the above photo.
2003.4.19-2016.9.12.
완치가 안되는 병을 앓다 결국 얼마전에 무지개다리를 건넜어요.
오랫동안 씽이를 지켜봐주시고 아껴주신 분들께 감사드려요.
정말정말 고맙습니다.
씽이도 천국에서 그 사랑을 다 기억하고 있을거예요.
English translation:
2003.4.19-2016.9.12
She had an illness that could not be cured. Finally she crossed the rainbow bridge awhile ago.
Thank you to those who have watched and cared for her for a long time.
Thank you very much.
I hope she will remember that love even when she is already in heaven.

The pictures below are our first glimpse of Sing-e. The camera JHJ used to take these photos was a gift from Japanese fans, given to JHJ when he had a fan meeting in Japan in 2006. To show his appreciation for the gift, JHJ took photos of Sing-e, which he then shared with fans.  She was 3 years old  in these photos.

Who could ever forget this cute photo of JHJ and Sing-e?

Sing-e was JHJ’s favorite photography subject as evidenced by the proliferation of Sing-e’s photos in the various social media accounts of Hyun Jae.

Sing-e also featured prominently in the IG account owned by JHJ’s eldest sister. Sing-e was a well-loved family member, not only by the Jo family, but also by JHJ fans.  Fans never forget to send something for Sing-e – toys, clothes, plates, etc. – every time they send a care package to JHJ.
