Goo Hara (구하라) was found dead in her home today (Sunday, 24th November), 6 months after she tried to commit suicide.
Seoul Gangnam Police Station stated that the former KARA band member was discovered in her home in Cheongdam neighborhood of Seoul at approximately 6pm.
According to reports, the 28-year-old K-pop star had been busy promoting her music in Japan in recent weeks. Hara even debuted a Japanese-language dance track titled “Midnight Queen” and recently toured several cities in Japan between 14th – 19th November.
The troubled singer wrote a public apology in May this year after she tried to take her own life. She has also been embroiled in a court case with her former flame Choi Jongbum (최종범). He was previously accused of blackmailing and physical assault.
Goo Hara cried for the passing of her friend Sulli and now she's taken the same path.
