Note shows K-pop star’s struggles with depression
    2017-December-21  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A NOTE said to have been written by K-pop superstar Jonghyun has been posted on social media by his close friend, revealing a struggle with depression.

“The depression that was slowly devouring me at last consumed me,” said the note, posted by fellow singer Nine.

Jonghyun, 27, was found dead on Monday in a suspected suicide.

He was the lead singer of one of South Korea’s biggest pop groups SHINee. His death has triggered an outpouring of grief from fans around the world.

On Tuesday, Nine, a member of another pop group Dear Cloud, shared on Instagram the note she said Jonghyun had sent to her, with instructions to make it public if he “disappeared from the world.”

Dear Cloud’s management Mymusic Entertainment confirmed to news agency Yonhap the note was posted after consultation with Jonghyun’s family.

It spoke about his struggle with living in the public eye, saying “I was broken from the inside” and “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.”

However, no details were given as to when the note was written or sent to Nine.

On Twitter, his fans have interpreted the message as the singer’s last request to them.

Jonghyun, whose full name was Kim Jong-hyun, was found unconscious in a Seoul apartment. He was taken to hospital where he was declared dead.

Police said they would not be conducting a post-mortem examination, following a request from Jonghyun’s family.

Officers said it “looks certain” that he had killed himself, but did not officially confirm his cause of death as they were still conducting investigations.

Fans were paying their respects at a funeral hall at the hospital in Seoul throughout Tuesday.

A private funeral will be held today. (SD-Agencies)
