Astro member and K-pop singer Moon Bin passes away at age 25.

Moon Bin, a K-pop sensation and member of the boy band Astro, passed away on Thursday at the age of 25.

Fantagio posted a statement on Instagram in which they said Moon Bin "suddenly left us and became a star in the sky."

Around 8:10 p.m., the star's manager discovered him dead in his residence in southern Seoul. Yonhap news agency reported quoting police on Wednesday evening.

"All Astro members, Fantagio colleagues, executives and employees who've been together for a long time are deeply mourning the deceased in such great sadness and shock,"

the music label said, adding that the star's bereaved family's grief was "incomparable."

The music label acknowledged that it was difficult to communicate the unexpected news to fans because the late artist "always loved and thought of the fans more than anyone else."

Additionally, it requested that people "refrain from speculative and malicious reports" while the family was grieving.

In 2016, Moon Bin made his Astro debut. The group's other members are Yoon San-ha, MJ, Cha Eun-woo, and Jinjin.
