An idol committed suicide in October

From 2008 to 2015, Goo Hara was part of the KARA girls band, before embarking on a successful solo career, with several singles as well as small and big screen roles. But the star also made news for her private life, whether blackmail, then the conviction of her ex-boyfriend, but also the suicide of another idol, Sulli , which she was very close.

In recent years, the K-Pop industry has been hit by scandals and news stories, between suicides, depressions and cyberspell, revealing a toxic environment behind the glamor of its stars and their songs.
