Pop artist Goo Hara found dead at home aged 28

Super Junior’s Heechul Sets Instagram On Private Following Goo Hara’s Death

South Korean singer Goo Hara’s death exposes pressures of K-pop stardom

According to the New York Times, police suspect Hara died by suicide after they found a note that expressed "despair" at her residence.

After retiring from the group, Koo Hara launched a solo career. The cause of death was still under investigation.

Word has it that shortly after Goo Hara (구하라)'s shocking death reports came out yesterday (Sunday, 24th November), he has not upload anything on social media to address the unfortunate news. The South Korean singer and actress passed away over the weekend. Hara was previously hospitalized for a suicide attempt in May. In May, the singer's manager found her unconscious at her home, after posting a message saying "Goodbye" on her Instagram account. In her last Instagram post two days ago, Hara wished her followers "good night".

The singer later apologized for causing "concerns and a commotion" among her fans over the incident.

She had signed with a talent management agency in Japan earlier this year and released a song named Midnight Queen earlier this month.




As a response to that, most of E.L.Fs (Super Junior stans) as well as other K-pop fans took to Twitter to send their endless love and support to Heechul.

"Korean women find it more and more hard to report crimes as victims because they see female artists facing even greater backlashes & trauma because how the public, police and the justice system respond to sexual assault, and that sends a clear message to all women in Korea", Bloomberg writer Jihye Lee wrote on Twitter.

Her former partner was given a suspended jail term in August for physically assaulting and blackmailing the star.

Goo had also appeared on television and released music by herself.

Goo debuted with five-member band Kara in 2008.
