the story is still developing and im honestly too shaken to say anything right now, i've never felt so punched in the heart
he was foundu in an apartment in cheongdam with the gas turned on and coal on the stove top, unconcious. the police were called, found him at 6:10pm (a little less than an hour ago), he was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
i am so sorry to his family, his fans, and to everyone who was touched by his talent and inspiration. i can barely type at the moment because im so upset but i hope for whatever reason he chose to leave us, he is now in peace.
update: he texted this to his sister just before he was found
"Send me off please. Tell everyone I've worked hard. This is my last greeting."
Please don't believe the translations saying he said 'I've really suffered' or 'it was so hard' because thats NOT what he said. Here is his korean message:
나 보내달라 - send me off
고생했다고 말해달라 - tell me i worked hard
마지막 인사다 - this is my last greeting
This is so important:
I know it is hard to believe at times, but when you're feeling most hopeless please remember it will pass, there are people who love you, it is your depression trying to convince you there arent. you matter, you are loved.
its been shared that he booked this apartment at noon today, this was not his home but a rental specifically for this purpose. the police worked so hard to quickly find where jonghyun was and rushed there with emergency crew. they truly did all that they could and it must have been so ard on them to know they were just too late. my prayers too all the rescue workers and police involved. you're heroes.
