Fans Mourn Death of K-Pop Star Jonghyun

K-pop group SHINee who has died on Dec. 18 2017

The 27-year-old frontman, known as Jonghyun, was found unconscious in a rented apartment in Seoul, reports The Independent.

Kim Jong-hyun, the lead singer of popular South Korean boy band SHINee, was found dead Monday in Seoul.

K-Pop star Kim Jong-hyun, better known to fans as Jonghyun, was reportedly preparing to release a brand new music video and solo music.

Jonghyun's death is being reported as an "apparent suicide".

His sister made the initial call to emergency responders at 4.42pm saying that she believed her brother was committing suicide, Yonhap added.

Keaton Jones mom slammed after anti-bullying video goes viral
Captain America Chris Evans tweeted, "Stay strong Keaton" and invited his family to attend the Avengers premiere next year. Kimberly Jones , someone who publicly ranted against Black Lives Matter, doesn't seem to understand what irony is.

Burning coal briquettes, which release carbon monoxide, is a common method of suicide in South Korea, which has one of the world's highest suicide rates. "Tell me I did well", and, "Final farewell", the star said in the messages, according to South Korean media.

Jonghyun had also branched out on a successful solo career in 2015, performing two solo concerts in Seoul just this month, but he was the only original member of SHINee to participate in the band's reformation earlier this year, which coincided with their fifth album release.

A funeral will be "held quietly with his relatives and company colleagues", said SM.

Police said they have not yet determined whether he killed himself. SHINee have been called the Princes of K-Pop due to their complex dance routines and incredible live vocals, earning huge hits with songs including Sherlock, Replay, Ring Ding Dong and Dream Girl. They're one of only a handful of K-pop groups to find global success.
