Police were called to the residence after his sister told officials he had sent her a group of worrying text messages. SM Entertainment had not issued a statement on Jonghyun's death at press time. "Final farewell." It was later revealed that his cause of death was carbon monoxide poisoning. Many fans wept in silence, and the few who broke out wailing were consoled by fellow fans. So talented, so kind, so handsome, so unbelievable, and so much more. "I'm heartbroken and devastated by the news". A third simply chimed in, "My tears won't stop".

Jonghyun shot to fame with the band in 2008, and they also became big in Japan.

Earlier this year, the group went on a world tour that took in the United States and released their fifth album, titled Five.
