It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of Kim Jonghyun, main vocalist of the global sensation KPOP group, SHINee.
On the evening of December 18, 2017, Kim Jonghyun was found unconscious with coal briquettes burning in his home. After long deliberations, the police determined the cause of death to be suicide via carbon monoxide poisoning.
Jonghyun is survived by his sister, his parents, and the other four members of SHINee, Lee Jinki, Kim Kibum, Choi Minho, and Lee Taemin.
All schedules for SHINee have been cancelled indefinitely. More updates will come as they are available.
Our thoughts are with Jonghyun’s family and friends, and everyone whose lives he touched.
Rest in peace, Kim Jonghyun (1990-2017).
