The Associated Pressreported on Monday that Jonghyun's sister told police that the singer sent her text messages reading "Final farewell" and "I've had difficulties" prior to the discovery of his body, though authorities have not yet determined a cause of death. "Tell me I did well".

He was moved to a nearby hospital but later died, police were quoted as saying.
The singer had a huge fanbase as the lead singer of K-pop band SHINee.
