K-pop singer Yohan, who performs with the group TST, has died at age 28 — the latest in a string of deaths in recent years among the genre’s entertainers.
TST’s record label, KJ Entertainment, announced Yohan, whose real name is Kim Jeong-hwan, died Monday, though no cause of death was provided, the Guardian reported.
“We are sad to relay the most unfortunate, sorrowful news,” the label said. “On June 16, TST member Yohan left this world. The late Yohan’s family is currently in deep mourning.”
Yohan entered the spotlight in 2013 with the group NOM (No Other Man), and then became one of six members of TST four years later, the outlet reported.
His death follows the K-pop singer Cha In Ha dying suddenly in December at age 27, though the cause of death wasn’t released, The Guardian said.
Singers and friends, Goo Hara, 28, and Sulli, 25, took their own lives just weeks apart in 2019 after being subjected to online abuse, the report said.
And the popular Kim Jong-hyun, a member of the band SHINee, also died in 2017 by suicide, the outlet said.
