Goo Hara debuted as a member of KARA in 2008 and later began promoting as a solo artist in Korea and Japan.
She struggled with her ex-boyfriend Choi Jong Beom in September last year because of the assault and dissemination of their private videos. Choi Jong Beom was sentenced to three years of probation for one year and six months in prison on charges of intimidation, coercion, injury, and property damage.
Goo Hara was found unconscious at home in May 2019 and was treated at hospital.
