A private funeral service is being held for Korean superstar Jonghyun, who took his own life last week aged 27.

Jonghyun, whose real name was Kim Jong-hyun, was the lead singer of one of the biggest K-pop groups, SHINee.

His death has sparked waves of grief among the global K-pop community - thousands of fans have paid tribute at the hospital where his body was held.

A note believed to have been sent by him to a friend spoke of his struggles with depression and fame.

It said he was "broken from the inside" and that "the life of fame was never meant for me".

"What else can I say more. Just tell me I've done well. That this is enough. That I've worked hard. Even if you can't smile don't fault me on my way."

Jonghyun's coffin was carried out of the hospital in Seoul on Thursday, with the other members of SHINee and the pop group Super Junior as pallbearers.

His sister walked ahead of the procession holding his photo.

Jonghyun was found unconscious in a Seoul apartment late on Monday. He was taken to hospital where he was declared dead.

Investigators said no post-mortem examination would be performed on his body and later ruled it a suicide.

Earlier this week, SHINee posted an emotional tribute on their official Twitter account, saying in Korean: "Jonghyun, who loved music more than anyone.... Forever, he will be remembered."

 

Conceived in South Korea in the 1990s as a Western-Asian hybrid, K-pop is now a multi-million dollar industry.

It is at the forefront of the so-called Korean Wave - the spread of Korean music, drama and film across Asia and worldwide.

SHINee were founded in 2008 as a five member group under SM Entertainment, and quickly rose to become of the biggest K-pop boy groups.

Over the past years, SHINee recorded several albums in Japanese and in 2017 sold out the 55,000-seat Tokyo Dome and part of their Japan tour. Earlier this year, they also played their first North American tour.
