K-Pop Singer Seo Minwoo Found Dead

Seo Minwoo, a member of the boy band 100%, has passed away.

According to a statement made by his group's label, TOP Media, obtained by People, Minwoo was found dead in his home in the Gangnam district of Seoul, South Korea on Sunday, March 25, 2018. E! News adds that paramedics had been called to the scene, but, unfortunately, it was too late.

The K-pop singer had reportedly gone into cardiac arrest. However, his official cause of death has not yet been released to the public.

Minwoo was just 33 years old.

"His family, the 100% members, and the TOP Media artists and staff members are all grief-stricken and in mourning from the unexpected, sad news," TOP Media stated on their website, as translated by People. The agency noted that Minwoo's funeral "will be held quietly according to the will of the family."

Minwoo's 100% bandmate Changbum reacted to his friend's death on social media, sharing a photo of him and writing, "I hope you are comfortable in the sky. I want you to be a bright star and shine on this world."

The band 100% hit the music scene in 2012, releasing their EP We, 100% — which featured songs like "Bad Boy" and "Still Again" — that same year. Minwoo, who'd been an actor before becoming the lead singer of the group, later left the band to complete his mandatory two-year military service in 2014.

Minwoo's death comes just months after the passing of another K-pop star, SHINee's Kim Jong-Hyun. As Nicki Swift previously reported, Jong-Hyun died in December 2017. His death was considered an apparent suicide.
