A private funeral service is being held for Korean superstar Jonghyun, who took his own life last week aged 27.

Jonghyun’s coffin was carried out of the hospital on Thursday, with the other members of Shinee and the pop group Super Junior as pallbearers.

His sister walked ahead of the procession holding his photo.

Meanwhile, South Korea’s music industry has slowed down, with many of the most popular acts deferring releases of new music, or canceling activities altogether out of respect to the deceased.
