The Korea Herald said the singer was taken to hospital after being found unconscious in an apartment in Seoul.

The lead singer of popular South Korean boy band SHINee has died in a possible suicide, police said.

Emergency services were alerted by the singer's sister and he was later pronounced dead at hospital.

Investigators discovered brown coal being burnt in a frying pan when they arrived at the apartment, reports South Korea's Yonhap News Agency.

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

SHINee was formed in 2008 by SM Entertainment and had five members: Jonghyun, Onew, Key, Minho and Taemin. Please send me off. Tell everyone I've had a hard time.




Kim released his first solo album in 2015 that reached number one on the Billboard World Albums chart.

SM Entertainment, the company that founded the group, confirmed Kim's death in a statement, writing that his funeral would be "carried out in the quietest manner with his family members and co-workers".

"His sister was first to call the police assuming that he might commit suicide", said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive subject.

K-pop's success has also been dependent on a highly-polished image. He last performed at two solo concerts at Seoul's Olympic Park earlier in December.

SHINee have been dubbed the "Princes of K-pop" - a musical genre that started in South Korea and that mixes electronic, hip hop, pop, rock, and R&B music.
