The Korean Herald said he was 28 years old.

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.

Jonghyun was taken to the hospital in Seoul where he was later pronounced dead after being found unconscious in his apartment - reportedly after inhaling toxic fumes from coal burning on a frying pan. "SHINee's Jonghyun left us suddenly".

News of Jonghyun's death prompted a flurry of messages on social media, with many fans voicing disbelief.

The Associated Press reported on Monday that Jonghyun's sister told police that the singer sent her text messages reading "Final farewell" and "I've had difficulties" prior to the discovery of his body, though authorities have not yet determined a cause of death.

Jonghyun's agency SM Entertainment has later released an official statement to confirm that the SHINee member has indeed passed away. His debut solo album in 2015 topped the US Billboard World Albums chart.

The advantage of opting for in-display sensors would let manufacturers bring more full-screen smartphones in the future. Named "Clear ID", these are expected to work exactly like the home button fingerprint sensors.


Mike Suh, head of strategy and global business at entertainment conglomerate CJ E&M, says idols go through a long training period "so that they immediately attract fans when they first appear". "Tell me I did well".

K-pop's success has also been dependent on a highly-polished image.

Kim Jong-Hyun's tragic suicide note has allegedly been released, citing the high pressure of being a celebrity in Korea.

Dubbed "The Princes of K-pop" by CNN earlier this year, SHINee was first formed in 2008.

The lead singer of one of Korea's most popular boybands has died at age 27.
