Goo, a former member of girl group Kara, had been found unconscious at her home in May in an apparent suicide attempt. Goo, 28, had drawn nasty comments from netizens after her relationship with hairdresser Choi Jong-bum made headlines, with her claims that he was abusive towards her and that he filmed their intimate moments without her knowledge. Choi has since been sentenced to a jail term of one year and six months, with the punishment suspended for three years. I told her: 'Let's work hard and live on until the end. Goo found it hard to accept that the court acquitted him of the charge of filming her illegally, though he was found guilty of other charges.

Goo Hara was found dead on Sunday at 6pm, police confirmed. Fans paid tribute to the strong independent Korean who took her boyfriend to court over a plot to destroy her. And, as some fans remember her extraordinary talent, others are paying tribute to her public battle with boyfriend Choi Jong Bum, who tried to destroy her after a brutal attack in her own home. Choi Jong Bum not only assaulted the year-old but threatened to set alight to her career by releasing a sex tape of their time together. Goo's lover faced three trials and the pressure of the endless publicity must have daunted the ex Kara member - but supporters remember her defiance in the face of his lies. Choi Jong Bum eventually received a prison sentence of one year and six months, suspended for three years on September 4. Goo's boyfriend had drunkenly attacked his lover in bed after shaking her awake. He then screamed at her about her behaviour before assaulting her. Despite Goo fighting back in self defence, Choi was so disgusted by the marks to his face he threatened to release a sex tape to media to "make it impossible for her to pursue an entertainment career.
Best to all of you, and may God Fate help us all. Take a breath, stop and think, is it worth destroying so many lives so you can step in and take the rewards after someone else does the hard work. The church can be a very cruel place for single people. Sure it's lonely and hard work being a "single parent". It is so hard, so sad and so lonely. It had nothing to do with our relationship and so much to do with the pressures and demands of his work. So that's something I can't say is good or bad. Our first Christmas married I want you all to know that you are loved and appreciated.
