Who is Kim Jonghyun and who are the other members of SHINee

His sister had called police after receiving a series of text messages she believed constituted a suicide note. According to the BBC, police are saying suicide will be investigated as a possible cause of death.

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.

Unconfirmed reports say the singer died from inhaling toxic fumes from coal briquettes burning on a frying pan.

Tearful fans gather to visit the mourning altar for Kim Jong-Hyun, a 27-year-old lead singer of the massively popular K-pop boyband SHINee, at a hospital in Seoul. "The depression that has slowly been eating me away has finally gobbled me up".


Jonghyun was found unconscious at his apartment in Cheongdam-dong in Southern Korea.

Following his success leading Shinee, the singer-songwriter pursued a solo career in 2015.

Jonghyun's agency SM Entertainment has later released an official statement to confirm that the SHINee member has indeed passed away. His last public appearance was at a solo concert titled Inspired on December 9 and 10 in Seoul.

Tributes flooded in on social media as news of Jonghyun's death spread. "Your music and SHINee's will always be here", wrote one.
