K-Pop Star Hara Transported to Hospital After Suicide Attempt (Report)

Goo Ha-ra, better known as Hara, is reportedly recovering after a suicide attempt at her home on Sunday (May 26).

The 28-year-old singer and actress, known as a member of the now disbanded K-Pop girl group Kara, attempted suicide at her home in Seoul, South Korea according to Korean news outlet YTN.

One night before (May 25), she posted an image with the word “Goodbye” on her Instagram. Her manager contacted her, and when she did not respond, her manager rushed to the home and reportedly found her unconscious in a room full of smoke. She was then transported to a local hospital.

Hara reportedly remains unconscious, but her breathing and pulse are normal.

We are wishing the best for Hara and her loved ones at this time.

    Just to give anyone who doesn’t know the context to this suicide attempt:

    Hara and now ex-boyfriend got into a fight and decided to break up. The ex then went to her house, trashed the place and demanded for her to come home ASAP. She went to her home with a male friend to accompany her where the ex hit and abused Hara. Hara fought back and at this time the ex revealed that he had a sex tape of them together and that he would release it if she broke up with him. Cops were called and the ex pleaded innocent due to “self defence” and “only sending her the sex tape to remind her of the good memories”. They were both indicted in court but he’s still up for some other charges. In Korea, it doesn’t matter who hits who first, both parties who get physical get in trouble so despite Hara being innocent and literally defending herself against her abuser, she was also criminalized. Now the ex boyfriend released a statement that he’s basically sorry not sorry and that he will be appealing any further court judgments.

    She probably felt extremely embarrassed and hurt over both the sex tape and the abuse and felt that the only way out was through suicide.

    Thank you for clarifying. People like to rush into judgment. I hope she recovers well and fast. She has a lot of trouble to deal with, but life is full of them.
