Who is Goo Hara and what is K-Pop?

K-pop star Goo Ha-ra was found dead around 6

Korean K-pop singer Goo Hara was found dead in her home in southern Seoul on November 24, months after she was hospitalized in this May due to a suicide attempt.

Only 28 years old, she first gained prominence as a member of Kara in 2008, before releasing her debut solo EP in 2015.

The K-pop world is mourning the loss of a bright young star.

The singer's social media accounts had been flooded with abusive comments about her history with her former boyfriend, Choi Jong Bum, ever since she filed a lawsuit against Choi for assault and illegal filming a year ago.

It was revealed that it was Hara's housekeeper who found her with the police adding, "Based on on-site inspection and testimony from her family, there are no suspicions of a crime".

It is also known that she was one of the closest friends of the singer-actress Sulli, who died by suicide in October.

I think it made my career go downhill before it started. "He then walked out like nothing ever happened", Aliu continued. They're 1-5-2 in their past eight a year after Calgary won a franchise-record 50 games in Peters' first season as coach.

On the work front, Hara had released a new song titled Midnight Queen earlier this month. "But from now on, I will steel my heart and try to show up healthy". In August 2019, her ex-boyfriend was given a suspended jail term for threatening and physically assaulting Hara.

According to the police, an acquaintance found her body unconscious at around 6 p.m.at her house in Seoul.

But the death of Goo also highlights the scourge of revenge porn, as well as an epidemic of what is known as molka in South Korea, where women are covertly filmed with spy cameras and footage uploaded to websites.

Goo's fans also filled her Instagram with condolences in various languages, a lot of them centering around Goo reuniting with Sulli, a close friend, in the afterlife.

At the time, she was embroiled in disputes with an ex-boyfriend who threatened to circulate a sex video of her. Two days before her death, she took to her Instagram account to post a photo of herself laying down with the caption, "잘자" which translates to "good night" in English.
