Jonghyun from SHINee commits suicide; depression?

 
Behind the glitz, glamour and seemingly endless well of positivity and energy lies a darker side of stardom.
 
Many celebrities suffer from depression... and that may haven been the cause of the latest passing of a young K-pop superstar.
Jonghyun, a member of boyband SHINee... died in an apparent suicide.
 
For details we turn to our Lee Jeong-yeon.  
 
 A young star has fallen this week... Kim Jonghyun, member of K-pop boy band SHINee, said his last goodbye to the world on Monday... leaving family, friends, and fans across the world mourning his death.
 
  The four other members of SHINee have registered to be chief mourners at his funeral, which takes place on Thursday, to say their last goodbyes.
 
 Many other celebrities from SM Entertainment, such as BoA, Girls' Generation, and EXO, as well as BTS, have paid their respects at the wake.
 Devastated fans filled up the lobby of Asan Medical Center, where the wake has held, to pay their respects.
 
  The 27-year-old was found unconscious in an apartment in Cheongdam-dong, filled with toxic smoke from lit coal briquettes. He was moved to Konguk University Hospital, but passed away shortly after at around 6:32 p.m.
 
  The search for the idol group member began when the police got a phone call at 4:42 p.m. from his sister who had received foreboding messages from the singer with phrases such as, "let me go," and "this is my last farewell."

His family members have decided not to carry out an autopsy according to the Gangnam Police Department on Tuesday.
 
  Jonghyun shot to fame as the lead singer of the group SHINee, who released their debut mini-album in 2008, and have since gathered fans all across the world.
 
 In Japan, they sold out the 55,000-seat Tokyo Dome, and in the UK, Odeon's website crashed a minute after ticketing opened for their appearance at the Korean Film Festival in London.
 
They also did their first North American tour earlier this year.
 
 After Jonghyun's death, fans have been paying tribute both online and offline all across the world, with Jonghyun and SHINee trending on Twitter even in the United States as fans expressed their grief.
