Goo, 28, was discovered at her home in southern Seoul by her maid at around 6 p.m. (0900 GMT) on Sunday, Lee said.

Goo Hara was a member of the South Korean idol group Kara. Police say they are now establishing a cause of death but do not suspect foul play.

K-pop singer Goo Hara passed away over the weekend.

The news of her death comes about six months after an alleged suicide attempt in May.

The singer later apologized for causing "concerns and a commotion" among her fans over the incident. She captioned the breath-taking picture: Good Night (in the Korean language), wishing her 1.7 million followers. They helped fan the global K-pop wave, building large fan bases in Japan, China and other countries.

The world is mourning the death of Goo Hara.

"Korean women find it more and more hard to report crimes as victims because they see female artists facing even greater backlashes & trauma because how the public, police and the justice system respond to sexual assault, and that sends a clear message to all women in Korea", Bloomberg writer Jihye Lee wrote on Twitter.

Despite the challenges that Goo Hara was facing in her personal life, the star had scheduled a music tour in Japan and a new single for the Japanese market.

For those who don't know, the 36-year-old is known to be very close with the former KARA member, appearing in several shows like "Knowing Brothers" and "A Style For You". Choi was later found guilty of blackmail and assault and was given a suspended sentence earlier this year. She was best friends with fellow K-pop star Sulli, according to the New York Times. Lead singer of the K-pop band SHINee Jonghyun died by suicide in 2017.
