Goo Hara, K-pop star of Kara fame, found dead
(CNN) The South Korean singer and actress Goo Hara was found dead on Sunday, Gangnam District Police in Seoul told CNN.
Police would not comment on a cause of death, but plan to hold a news briefing Monday morning.
She later apologized to her fans for “causing concern to everyone and causing a commotion,” a media outlet in Japan reported.
The episode reignited the debate over the intense pressure of K-pop stardom, which critics say is fueled by harsh online criticism leveled at the industry’s performers.
Another K-pop star, Kim Jong-hyun, died by suicide in 2017.
