    The singer earlier attempted suicide at her home in May. She was found unconscious by her manager and taken to a hospital. She later apologised to fans for trying to take her own life.

    The singer's fans, devastated by the loss, rushed to Twitter to mourn and express their condolences after receiving the news of their beloved star's death.

    ​Many Twitter users recalled Goo Hara's friendship with late Sulli, another K-pop celebrity who committed suicide last month. Sulli had reportedly suffered from severe depression.

    ​Goo Hara was born on 13 January 1991 in Gwanju, South Korea. She launched her career in 2008, joining the girl group Kara. In 2015, she put out her solo debut EP Alohara (Can You Feel It?).
