The beloved K-Pop idol and SHINee lead singer, whose real name is Kim Jong-hyun, died on Dec. 18 after being found unconscious at a resident hotel in Seoul. Jonghyun’s older sister had called police after receiving troubling messages from her brother, and they rushed to the scene. Jonghyun was rushed to Konkuk University Hospital in a state of cardiac arrest and was later pronounced dead. Jonghyun reportedly sent his sister this message shortly before his death: “It’s been too hard. Please send me off. Tell everyone I’ve had a hard time. This is my last goodbye.” Just months before his death, Jonghyun revealed in an interview that he had been feeling depressed. He will be so missed.
