According to the South Korean entertainment news website Soompi, Moonbin of the K-pop boy band ASTRO was discovered dead at his residence on Wednesday. He was 25 years old. The news source said that Moonbin's manager discovered him dead in his house in Seoul's Gangnam neighbourhood on April 19 at around 8:10 p.m. KST, and the manager right away notified the police. The Seoul Gangnam Police Station has confirmed this information. According to the report, police authorities stated, "We are currently discussing the possibility of an autopsy to determine the precise cause of death." The police added, "It appears that Moonbin took his own life."

Moonbin made his debut on February 23, 2016. He began acting at an early age and portrayed the younger version of actor Kim Bum's character in the well-known K-drama "Boys Over Flowers." Moonbin not only had his ASTRO debut but also joined its first subgroup, Moonbin & Sanha, which made its debut on September 14, 2020.

Before eventually joining Astro, Moonbin enrolled in Fantagio's training programme as a youngster. Six performers made up the initial ensemble before one left in February 2023.

Fans of Moonbin have been mourning his passing and honouring his goodness and ability. He was regarded as Astro's primary dancer because of his versatility as a performer.

Social media images from Wednesday night showed mourners in South Korea leaving flowers and post-it notes at makeshift street memorials. Additionally, supporters hung purple and silver balloons, two hues that stood out during the singer's previous performance with Sanha in Thailand.
