Jonghyun: Fans mourn death of SHINee K-pop star

Kim Jong-hyun, the lead singer of popular South Korean boy band SHINee, died Monday at 27 years old, according to Reuters via multiple local reports.

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. "SHINee's Jonghyun left us suddenly".

Kim's sister made the initial call to 119 responders at 4:42 p.m. reporting that she believed her brother was committing suicide. "Tell me I did well".

Inside the room police said they found burned charcoal briquettes; burning charcoal in an enclosed space is a form of suicide in many Asian countries.

The group, formed by SM Entertainment, shot to fame after the release of their debut EP, Replay, in 2008. His label said he "loved music more than anybody else and he was an artist who did the best to perform his absolute best on stage", adding, "It breaks out heart to have to bring this news to fans who loved Jonghyun so much". In 2015, Jonghyun launched a successful solo career and collaborated with several other Korean artists.
