As determined by fandom consensus (a.k.a. many fics writers write them this way) Jonghyun is the top and Key is the bottom.
B: They're so married!
A: Minho was in between them though.
B: No surprise there.
A: I wish JongKey would just come out already.
B: I think we're way past questioning the nature of their relationship after Jonghyun's marriage proposal.
Jongkey is a infamous pair that has quickly risen to fame in the SHINee fandom; its a phenomenon amongst fans, a "otp" that is enjoyed by millions. The popluar pair has plenty of fan communities on sites such as tumblr and livejournal alike. The two are known very well for flirting and camwhoring and Jonghyun - being the skinship king that he is - has a infatuation for touching Key in public (and private; or so us fans hope). Because of this, Jongkey is the first thing to come to mind when someone mentions SHINee pairs and/or otp's. However, Jongkey is often interrupted by the well-known cockblocker - Minho.
- "I'm totally flailing over the Jongkey cut on the making of Muzit! So cute!"
- "I was so annoyed when Minho kept cockblocking; Can't he see that Jongkey is real?! Aish!"
JongKey is the reality every JongKey shipper (and Jonghyun) wants. They have a lot of moments of intense staring and obvious lust for each other. They also exchange the sweetest words among each other.
JongKey is every JongKey shipper's obsession and reality.
JongKey is also very beautiful and perfect together.
JongKey shipper A : OMG! JONGKEY IS SO REAL!
JongKey shipper B : I KNOW RIGHT? JONGKEY IS SO PERFECT TOGETHER I'M GONNA DIE OF HAPPINESS IF THEY COME OUT.
