Pop Boy Band Singer Jonghyun Dead At 27

Jonghyun, whose real name was Kim Jong Hyun, was found unconscious in a studio apartment in southern Seoul late Monday, South Korean media reported. The singer's sister altered police to check on her brother, telling officials that he sent a series of text messages that included such words as "last goodbye".

Korean pop music - or K-pop - is one of the most notable exports to come out of South Korea in the past decade.

Kim spent almost a decade in his leading role as one of five members of SHINee, one of the most popular boy bands in the country, as well as a solo artist. "Tell me I did well". "On December 18th, SHINee's Jonghyun left us very suddenly".

Fans were invited to pay their respects at Seoul Asan Hospital Tuesday, ahead of a funeral which the family has requested to be held "as quietly as possible", according to SM Entertainment.

SHINee was formed in 2008 by SM Entertainment and had five members: Jonghyun, Onew, Key, Minho and Taemin.

The statement went on to say that the K-pop idol was the best artist who showed his love for music more than anyone does, and the agency is grief-stricken to break this tragic news to everyone who have loved him. They're one of only a handful of K-pop groups to find worldwide success. Jonghyun launched a successful solo career in 2015 and collaborated with numerous other Korean artists.
