K-Pop star Park Bo-ram dead at 30 after possible cardiac arrest

K-pop star Park Bo-ram died Thursday at the age of 30, after suddenly collapsing at a friend’s house in South Korea and appearing to go into cardiac arrest, The Korea Herald reported.

Park’s agency Xanadu Entertainment confirmed the news on Friday.

“Our hearts are deeply troubled as we deliver this sudden news to her fans. A wake and funeral proceedings will be scheduled after a discussion with the singer’s family,” the agency said in a statement to AllKPop.

The outlet reported Park was discovered unconscious and slumped over a bathroom sink by one of her friends, who attempted to perform CPR. She was then taken to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead roughly an hour later.

Multiple outlets reported Park had been drinking earlier in the night with her friends.

Police are now investigating her exact cause of death and are requesting an autopsy with the National Forensic Service.

Park first rose to prominence during her appearance on Mnet’s “SuperStar K2” competition show in 2010, finishing in eighth place. Four years later, she released her first solo single, called “Beautiful,” which climbed to No. 2 on Korea’s Circle Digital Chart.

She would go on to win the Artist of the Year Award at the Gaon Chart K-POP Awards, and has since released several other chart-topping songs, including “Celepretty,” “Pretty Bae,” “Sorry,” “Ordinary Love,” “Will Be Fine,” “Dynamic Love” and “If You.”

In February, Park shared a new duet with “SuperStar K2” champion Huh Gak. She was expected to release a new studio album later this summer.
