Today is another sad day in kpop world.
DSP Media, the company that leads popular girl group KARA, has reported that one of the members of “Baby Kara”, Sojin has passed away.
According to the reports on February 24th she was found unconscious lying in the garden of an apartment complex. She was rushed to the hospital immediately, but it was too late, Sojin did not make it.
A Representative of DSP Media told the media; “We suddenly heard of this unfortunate news today. It is so unfortunate. We will do everything we can to help her family.”
As a quick reminder Sojin was living as a trainee under DSP for five years, So Jin become known through MBC Music′s Kara Project: Kara the Beginning in May 2014. She ended her trainee contract in agreement with her agency in early 2015.
The police have concluded the case as suicide. Representative from Daeduk Police Station stated following: “We have concluded it to be suicide and we will be wrapping up the case. We did not find any traces of evidence that would suggest that it was something other than suicide. The family of the deceased are having a very difficult time, they want to send her off peacefully so there will not be any autopsy. The cause of death was excessive bleeding due to injuries. We have not found a will.”
We know that South Korea is one of the leading countries in the world when it comes suicides, and we forget it until a day like this comes. Even if we don’t know her we can feel the pain of another young life being sent away.
May she rest in peace, and we send our prayers and deepest condolences to her family to make it through this, as a parent myself I can’t even imagine what her parents are going through at the moment.
It has been revealed that her wake was set up yesterday for a day and that Sojin’s family have decided on cremation.
