SHINee Jonghyun Lashes Out At Law Banning Old Wireless Phones

On October 11, the Ministry of Science, ICT And Future Planning announced a new law that will see old style wireless home phones being banned starting from January 2014 with fines for continued usage of approximately USD$1866. The news has caused some concern amongst the public and SHINee’s Jonghyun also lashed out at the new law on his Twitter account.

Following the announcement, SHINee’s Jonghyun went on his Twitter to express his anger towards the new law. He starts off by saying “They say you can’t use wireless phones starting from January next year. They say even picking up a call with a phone will result in a $1866 fine. I’m flabbergasted. They say that this is an issue because it clashes with the LTE Spectrum or so they say. They say that there are still 100,000 people that use these phones. I hope no one gets fined because they were unaware of this.”
