  • Jonghyun's funeral hall attended by over 10,000 fans

The local news outlet featured footage of K-pop band BTS on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, zooming in on frontman RM's face, during a report on the death of fellow K-pop artist Kim Jong-hyun. Meanwhile, around 1000 fans reportedly gathered to send him off. Just tell me I've done well.

The service concluded Jonghyun's three-day funeral, which began on Tuesday, December 19, at the Asan Medical Center in Seoul. "I'm sorry for visiting you so late because of work, and I'm sorry I wasn't a source of strength when you were lonely", he wrote. "Even if you can't smile don't fault me on my way".

The private funeral started around 8 a.m. Only family members and friends attended.

But Kim, 27, was found in a hotel room in Seoul on Monday in what police said was suicide.

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

Kim was seen as a exemplary celebrity with flawless singing and dancing skills, who rarely made headlines for the drink-driving, drug use, or other perceived misbehaviours that have derailed the careers of many K-pop stars.

After an extending mortuary, K-pop idol Kim Jonghyun will be laid to rest in South Korea soon.

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

The K-pop stars bowed their heads and prayed as they waited for the hearse, while fans sang Christian hymns.

The band recorded several albums in both Korean and Japanese, and in 2017 sold out the 55,000 capacity Tokyo Dome as part of their Japan tour.
