JUST IN: Popular Singer Found Dead At His House, Aged 25 (PHOTO)
Moon Bin, a member of the South Korean band, Astro, has died at 25.
His music label and South Korean police made this known on Thursday.
The singer was found dead at his home in Southern Seoul late Wednesday, a Spokesperson for the National Police Agency told AFP, adding that there was no evidence of foul play.
Moon Bin’s label, Fantagio Music, also released a statement on Thursday, confirming his death but without disclosing the cause.
“On April 19, Astro member, Moon Bin, unexpectedly left our world and became a star in the sky,” it said on Twitter.
It asked that people refrain from speculative and malicious reports so that his family can pay their respects and honour him in peace.
The label’s announcement prompted thousands of comments from grieving fans, many expressing disbelief.
Moon Bin joined Fantagio’s trainee programme at an early age and was an actor and child model before debuting with Astro in February 2016.
