Goo Hara has passed away.
According to Seoul Gangnam Police Station, Goo Hara was found dead in her home in Cheongdam neighborhood of Seoul on November 24 at approximately 6 p.m. KST.
Previously, Korean news outlets reported that she was found unconscious but didn’t confirm her death.
It was reported that police investigation is currently underway.
Goo Hara was only 28 years old.
Goo Hara was involved in the very public fight against her ex-boyfriend who attempted to spread their sex tape last year. After her contract with her Korean agency expired, she focused on promoting in Japan and signed with a Japanese agency in June.
Their trial ended a couple of months ago; Choi Jong Bum (ex-boyfriend) had received a prison sentence of one year and six months, suspended for three years of probation. The prosecution filed an appeal against the court’s sentence back in September advocating for a harsher sentence to serve as a lesson to those who would attempt to do what he did in the near future.
May her soul rest in peace. Our sincerest condolences to her family and friends.
