Idol group SHINee's agency SM Entertainment released its official statement regarding Jonghyun's death and funeral plans for fans.

Fans will be able to offer their condolences as well.

 
On December 18, SM Entertainment announced "We are sorry to deliver such tragic news," revealing that "Jonghyun was found lying down in a residence, and while moved to a university hospital, he was declared dead in the evening of December 18."
 
SM Entertainment further stated "SHINee members, who stood by Jonghyun for a long period of time, and other SM Entertainment artists and executives and staff are shocked and deep in mourning as well."
 
On December 18, the agency had stated that "the funeral service will be carried out quietly, with only families, friends, and colleagues to attend."
 
On December 19, however, SM Entertainment announced a change in funeral plans, so as to arrange a separate place for fans to mourn Jonghyun. With respect to the bereaved's wishes, fans will be able to offer their condolences as well. Fans can offer their condolences at the Funeral Hall (Room No. 3, below ground floor) in Asan Medical Center, Seoul, from noon of December 19.

We are sorry to deliver such tragic news.

Jonghyun was found lying down in a residence located in Cheongdam, Seoul. He was immediately moved to a nearby university hospital, but he was declared dead in the evening of December 18.

Jonghyun was an artist who loved music more than anybody else, who performed his very best on stage.
 
It pains us to deliver such news to his fans, who gave their utmost love and devotion to Jonghyun.
 
We ask you to refrain from spreading rumors or reports based on mere speculation, as to help the bereaved cope with the sudden departure.
