The whole K-Pop industry are mourning the passing of SHINee's Jonghyun, whose death was confirmed to be caused by suicide. "The results of our investigation decisively conclude that he died by suicide, and therefore we will not be performing an autopsy. His family wished for an autopsy to not be conducted," authorities concluded (via Soompi).

His label SM Entertainment has now released a statement in memory of the idol.

"Jonghyun is the best artist who loved music more than anyone else, enjoyed the stage, and liked communicated with fans through music. We will remember you forever," the post reads.

Fellow artists like members of FT Island, CNBLUE, U-KISS and 2PM paid tribute to the SHINee singer by sharing their memories with him on social media.

“I’m so sad, my hands are shaking. We were very close because we debuted at a similar time. I don’t know what it was that gave you a hard time, but I hope that there are only good things for you in that place, Jonghyun," FT Island's Lee Hong Ki captioned.

FT Island's Choi Min Hwan, meanwhile, simply wrote "Hyung", a Korean word meaning a man's older brother.
