Vòng xoáy cô đơn của ngôi sao K-Pop

cuộc sống của Goo Hara ngay từ đầu là một cuộc đấu tranh. Cô kết thúc nó ở tuổi 28 sau khi chịu cô lập và quấy rối trên mạng

The K-pop star looked utterly drained (hoàn toàn kiệt sức). Her face scrubbed of makeup, Goo Hara, one of South Korea’s most popular musical artists, gazed into the camera during an Instagram livestream from a hotel room (phòng khách sạn) in Japan. In a fading voice, she read questions from fans watching from around the world.

By the time she climbed into bed (leo lên giường) at the end of the livestream in November 2019, she had reached a low point after a lifetime of struggle (chật vật). As a child, she was abandoned by her parents. Her father at one point attempted suicide. After grueling training, she debuted in a K-pop group at 17, early even by the standards of the Korean hit-making machine.

On Nov. 23, 2019, less than a week after her Instagram appearance (xuất hiện), she posted a photo of herself tucked in bed, with the caption “Good night.”

The next day, she was found dead in her home in Seoul.

The deaths have exposed a darker side (mặt tối) to South Korea’s entertainment industry (công nghiệp giải trí), a cultural juggernaut (tung hứng văn hóa) whose crushing demands often fall on the performers who fuel an insatiable assembly line of pop bands and streaming series.

For fans, the memory of Ms. Goo lingers. At a K-pop awards ceremony in Osaka, Japan, her former band, Kara, reunited to debut a new single. Two concertgoers (người đi xem hòa nhạc) brandished paper fans imprinted with the faces of the band members, including Ms. Goo.
