SHINee‘s Jonghyun Dies at Age 27

SHINee member Jonghyun was found unconscious in his apartment today and pronounced dead later. It appears to be a suicide.

The idol had been renting an Airbnb-type apartment in Cheongdam-dong, a district in the southern Seoul, for the past two days. Police responded to a call from his sister who alerted authorities that she suspected he was attempting suicide.

"It has been really hard. Let me go. Tell me I did well. This is my last goodbye," a text from Junghyun to his sister said, according to reports.

When police arrived on the scene, Jonghyun was found dead. Burned coals in a frying pan were found in the residence, leading police to suspect carbon monoxide poisoning was the cause of death.

Junghyun's death is currently being investigated as a suicide.

Junghyun debuted as a member of SHINee in 2008. The kpop group debuted in Japan in 2011 and went on to have modest success, including 2 studio album that topped sales charts in the country.

    I still can't believe it. It's so hard to grasp that he is not with us anymore. All the condolences to his family and friends.

    I'm not a SHAWOL but its hard to believe upon hearing the news. I thought it was just a joke but it wasn't. I'm so sorry that he didn't have someone to help him get better. He worked hard since the beginning and held on for as long as he could...

    RIP KIM JONGHYUN..

    This is why mental health is so important. Nobody saw the signs, no one knows how to spot them. Until the last moment, he endured everything and kept everything silent. He was struggling so much. And now such an amazing person is gone. Life should not be taken for granted. RIP Jonghyun. You're a real angel now.

    I still don't know what to say.  I think I'm still in big shock over this horrible news.  I don't know what he was going through, but it must have been really bad for him.  I do hope he is at peace now.  He will be missed.
