Netizens Revisit Goo Hara’s Classic Story Of Becoming A Superstar Amidst Assault Case
South Korean actress and former Kara member Goo Hara, who is currently in the midst of an assault case that has shook the entire nation, has become a classic story of a girl who had nothing fulfilling her dreams to become a superstar.
She lived with her relatives at a young age after her parents divorced. Ever since, she dreamt of becoming an idol, spending all her time training in both singing and dancing. Because her training sessions demanded a lot of time from her, she often came back home very late at night. She was careful not to wake her sleeping relatives and used the remaining time she had left to study quietly.
And because she wasn’t financially well off, she worked hard with part time jobs to earn her own money. She did this by being active as a fitting model for various online shopping malls. On top of being a fitting model, she worked in restaurant kitchens washing dishes, as a waitress, and putting up poster ads on the streets.
While she auditioned for both SM and JYP Entertainment, she made a last minute decision to sign with DSP Media and debut as a member of Kara, as she was very well aware of the odds against her if she remained as a trainee.
And the rest is history as Kara became one of the top K-Pop idol girl groups during their earlier days, commanding high demand and popularity in not just South Korean but in Japan as well.
She saved up enough money to even become a building owner in the wealthy district of Gangnam.
Her current situation with the assault case and sex tape seems to be one that will heavily decide how her fairy-tale like story will end.
So far, nearly 120,000 citizens of South Korea has shown support by joining a petition filed to the government, demanding punishment for her ex-boyfriend for allegedly threatening to end her career by leaking a sex tape she is in.
How will Goo Hara’s story play out? Will it end in a terrible scandal? Or will she be able to overcome the current crisis?
