SM Entertainment Confirms SHINee Jonghyun's Has Passed Away

Jonghyun of SHINee dies aged 27

Kim Jong-Hyun, a lead singer of SHINee, one of South Korea's top K-pop boybands, died on Monday, police said, in what appears to be a suicide.

"He was found unconscious at a residential hotel in Cheongdam-dong, Seoul and was rushed to a nearby hospital but was declared dead on the evening of the 18th".

Police said Kim's sister told them that, before his death, the singer had behaved erratically and sent her text messages that included messages such as "Final farewell" and "I've had difficulties".

"His sister was first to call the police assuming that he might commit suicide", said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive subject.

Kim's band, SHINee, is one of South Korea's most popular boy bands, and signed with the country's biggest music label, SM Entertainment, in 2008.

SHINee, sometimes referred to as "The Princes of K-Pop", released their fifth album, Five, earlier this year and toured Japan through April.

South Korean pop artist Kim Jonghyun has died at 27. "The depression that has slowly been eating me away has finally gobbled me up".

Kim debuted in May 2008 as the main singer of SHINee under S.M. Entertainment, and has boasted a almost decade-long prolific career not just in group activities but as a solo singer-songwriter. Kim also had a successful solo career as a singer-songwriter.
