[Update] SHINee's Jonghyun dies in hospital

Jonghyun of SHINee dies aged 27

The Korean Herald said he was 28 years old.

K-pop boy band SHINee's Jonghyun died in hospital Monday.

Kim, better known by his stage name Jonghyun, was found unconscious at a rented apartment studio in Cheongdam-dong, southern Seoul, around 6:10 p.m., according to police.

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

His sister made the initial call to emergency responders at 4.42pm saying that she believed her brother was committing suicide, Yonhap added.

The singer was moved to a nearby hospital but was later pronounced dead, police said.

The bright object could be seen from various parts of the metro, but most calls came from the west side of town. Its unusual orbit will see it pass closer to the sun than any other named asteroid.

News of Jonghyun's death prompted a flurry of messages on social media, with many fans voicing disbelief. "Tell me I did well".

The messages read "This is my last farewell", "Things have been so hard", "Please let me go and say I did a good job", prompting his sister to make an emergency call to the police.

Earlier this year, the group went on a world tour that took in the United States and released their fifth album, titled Five. Stars typically can't be seen dating, getting plastic surgery, or become embroiled in any kind of scandal, Tamar Herman, who covers K-pop for Billboard.com, told CNN earlier in 2017. In 2015, Jonghyun launched a successful solo career and collaborated with several other Korean artists. His last public appearance was at a solo concert titled "Inspired" on December 9-10 in Seoul, and he was scheduled to hold concerts with SHINee members in Tokyo and Osaka in February, Yonhap said.

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

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