Yohan, a member of boy band TST, died on Tuesday. He was 28 years old.
At the request of his family, the cause of death was not disclosed.
KJ Music Entertainment, his agency, asked the media to refrain from speculating or spreading rumors.
Yohan, whose real name is Kim Jung-hwan, debuted with boy band NOM in 2015 and joined TST after NOM disbanded.
