(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.

How to get help: In the US, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

The International Association for Suicide Prevention and Befrienders Worldwide also provide contact information for crisis centers around the world.
