K-Pop Star Park Bo Ram Drops Dead at 30 from Sudden Cardiac Arrest

South Korean K-pop star Park Bo Ram has dropped dead after suffering a sudden and fatal cardiac arrest while at a friend’s home, according to reports.

The massively popular singer was just 30 years old when she died suddenly on Thursday.

According to police, Park was with two other women at her friend’s house in Seoul on Thursday when she was found dead.

She reportedly collapsed after suffering a cardiac arrest.

She was rushed to hospital but was confirmed to be dead at 11.17 pm, about an hour after she was found.

Police have launched an investigation into her death.

According to news outlet AllKPop, Namyangju Police Station filed a report that said the singer was drinking with her friends.

The report states she excused herself to go to the bathroom at 9.55 pm but did not return for some time.

When her two friends checked on her, she was “found slouched over the sink, unconscious,” the report said.

They performed CPR while waiting for emergency responders to arrive at the house but she was unresponsive and had likely already passed away, it added.

Park’s agency XANADU Entertainment released a statement announcing the singer’s passing.

“We are here to share sorrowful and heartbreaking news,” said the statement, which was published by South Korean media outlets.

“Park Bo Ram suddenly passed away late at night on April 11.

“All of the artists and executives at XANADU Entertainment are deeply mourning the deceased with great sadness.

“It is even more heartbreaking that we have to tell you this sudden news to all of the fans who support Park Bo Ram.

“The funeral will be held after consulting with the bereaved’s family.

“Once again, we send our deepest condolences to the deceased so she may rest in peace.”

Park first gained attention by appearing in an “American Idol” style audition show called “Superstar K2” in 2010.

The show sees singers perform a song to impress three judges and the audience.

Four years later, in 2014, she debuted with a song called “Beautiful,” ranking 19th on South Korea’s annual chart that year.

Just ten days before her sudden death, on April 3, Park released a new single titled “I Miss You.”

She was said to be preparing for a full-length album.

Park is not the first young South Korean singer to die in recent years.

Last year, 25-year-old singer Moon Bin was found dead in his apartment.

His death was put down to suicide.

His manager found him dead at his home in Gangnam-gu, Seoul in April 2023, YonHapNews Television reported at the time.

K-drama actress Park Soo Ryun died at 29 years old in June 2023.

She died after falling down a set of stairs.

Also last year, South Korean influencer BJ Ahyeong, a K-pop DJ, was found dead and dumped in a pit in Cambodia weeks after she quit her social media career.

Choi Sung-bong – who was 33 – also died in a likely suicide in 2023.

In 2019, four young K-pop stars are known to have passed away.

South Korea has the highest suicide rate among young people in the world’s developed countries, according to De Telegraaf.

K-pop stars come under a high amount of pressure through their work.

But while scores of actors, K-Pop stars, and other South Korean celebrities have been victims of suicide due to mental illness, many have also died in devastating accidents and even horrifying murders.
