A month ago another South Korean singer Sulli, who was a member of K-pop group f(x) committed suicide at the age of 25.
Reports say Sulli and Hara are close friends.
Goo Hara had tried to take her own life six months ago but failed. The singer then apologised to fans in May this year after her suicide bid.
When the singer was recovering in the hospital she apologised, saying that she is sorry for causing concerns and a commotion.
She was recovering from health problems and she had been in agony over a number of overlapping issues. Hara then said that from now on, she will steel her heart and try to show up healthy.
She has just completed a tour in Japan with solo material including Midnight Queen.
Fans were concerned about Hara earlier this year when she posted some messages on her Instagram stories saying that she acts as if she is not tired when she is and act that she is not in pain when she is.
Another post is about living all the years in suppression and looking fine on the outside but it feels like she is starting to break into pieces inside.
