Police, who received the report at 6.30pm, are working to find out the cause of death.

Survived previous suicide attempt

Goo Hara is most famously known as a former member of girl group Kara, with whom she made her debut with in 2008.

Back in May this year, it was reported that Goo was found unconscious at her home by her manager. She had attempted suicide, but survived.

Prior to that, per British news site The Independent, Hara had left cryptic messages on her Instagram stories, such as “Acting as if I am not tired, when I am; acting as if I am not in pain, when I am”, which alarmed fans.

In another, she said: “After living all those years with suppression, I look fine on the outside, but it feels as if I am starting to break into pieces inside.”

However, she later returned with a single, “Midnight Queen”, reported South China Morning Post.
