Former KARA member and leader Han Seung Yeon revealed she is in a state of shock after hearing about her fellow member and friend Goo Hara’s passing.
Reports revealed that Han Seung Yeon went straight to Goo Hara’s house because she could not believe that the news of her passing was true.
An acquaintance stated that the two met up just a few days before and spent time together. After leaving her former agency KeyEast, she signed with a Japanese agency in June to begin her Japan promotions. After finishing her Japan activities, she returned home to spend time with not only Han Seung Yeon, but also the other members of KARA.
According to the Gangnam Police Department, she was found passed away in her home in Cheongdam-dong around 6PM KST on November 24.
Goo Hara was a former member of the girl group KARA and recently debuted as a solo artist in Japan. Last September, she was caught up in a dispute with her ex-boyfriend in regards to illegal filming and assault. She was also known to be close friends with former f(x) member Sulli, who passed away in October.
