News channel YTN reported that the singer had checked into a serviced residence for two nights and was found unconscious by police.

"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.

Kim debuted in May 2008 as the main singer of SHINee under S.M. Entertainment, South Korea's biggest music label and entertainment agency, and has boasted a almost decade-long prolific career not just in group activities but as a solo singer-songwriter.

Investigators believe he died from inhaling toxic fumes after discovering coal briquettes burnt in a frying pan in his apartment.


K-Pop star Kim Jong-hyun, better known to fans as Jonghyun, was reportedly preparing to release a brand new music video and solo music.

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". They released six chart-topping albums in Korea and five in Japan, in addition to embarking on numerous world tours. Kim's last public appearance was at his solo concert, titled "Inspired", from December 9-10 in Seoul.

"No words can describe how heartbroken I am".
