In the October-released clip by Youtube Channel Dingo Studios, Jonghyun makes a surprise visit to his fan, who is up to her neck working her part-time job at a cafe.
The fan, upon seeing Jonghyun, melts to the ground and starts crying. Jonghyun comforts the fan, lightly patting her on the shoulders, asking if she was surprised.
He gently teases the fan, saying "she says her makeup is a mess." The two sit down across from one another and share their sincerest thoughts.
The fan reveals that she had to retake the college entrance exam, which was a big burden for her. Jonghyun consoles the fan in return.
He asks the fan "Where do you see yourself in ten years?" When the fan answers "I want to be a radio show producer," Jonghyun replies "Let's meet at the broadcasting company in ten years."

He added "Maybe it's the seasons changing. My feeling lethargic." He further added "I'm gonna change my mood. How can I do so…," mumbling the end of his sentence
When a fan asked Jonghyun "What are your plans for Christmas? I'm going to wait up for Santa Claus," Jonghyun, hesitating to answer, finally managed to spit out a simple "Okay."
"Be as it always was, be well"
Jonghyun hosted the MBC radio show 'Jonghyun's Blue Night' for three years, from February 2014 to April 2017. Jonghyun even received the MBC Excellence Award for Radio DJ. Fans dubbed him 'Jjong-D,' a wordplay combining his name Jonghyun and the word DJ.
