Cha & # 39; s death comes just a week after K-pop singer Goo Hara, 28, was also found dead in her apartment in Seoul, just two weeks after launching her comeback tour after a suicide attempt six months ago.
She is not the first K Pop megastar to feel the intense pressure of the spotlight in the controversial industry.
It followed an apology to its fans earlier this year for causing a & # 39; commotion & # 39; after she was discovered unconscious in her apartment in the South Korean capital.
Hara, formerly of the girl band Kara, had caused a frenzy among her fans when she & # 39; Goodbye & # 39; wrote on her Instagram.

She was no longer answered by the police in her apartment in the exclusive Gangnam area of Seoul on May 30 and was taken to the hospital.
& # 39; I am sorry to have caused concern and commotion, & # 39; said Hara Sankei Sports days after her suicide attempt: & # 39; Regarding health, I'm recovering … I was in pain over some overlapping issues. & # 39;
On October 14, Hara & # 39; s colleague K Pop star Sulli was found dead in her home in Seongnam, Seoul, a month after she caused controversy by accidentally revealing a nipple on Instagram.

Sulli had previously suffered a huge amount of online abuse in what became known as the & # 39; no-bra & # 39; scandal after repeatedly showing her nipples on social media.
It is reported that the pop singer subsequently suspended her music career because of the abuse she had received in conservative South Korea.
Sulli was found at her home by her manager and the police said when they were working they assumed they had committed suicide.
The death of Sulli also reflects that of fellow K-pop star Jonghyun, who took his life in 2017 after fighting with depression.

In December 2017, Kim Jong-Hyun of boy band Shinee committed suicide after a depression.
In a final heartbreaking message, the 27-year-old wrote: & I was broken from the inside … The depression that has slowly eaten away at me has finally consumed me, and I couldn't beat it. & # 39;
His death caused sorrow to millions of fans around the world and focused on the Korean pop music industry.
Many K-pop stars are under enormous pressure to look and behave perfectly in an industry powered by so-called & # 39; fandoms & # 39; – Groups of well-organized admirers who spend huge amounts of time and money helping their favorite stars climb the charts and attack their perceived rivals.

In return, the stars are expected to enter cautiously in an industry where today's most avid fans can be tomorrow's most cruel critics if their idols do not meet their expectations – or they & # 39; betray & & # 39 ;.
Drug use or drink-driving are seen as career breakers, while behavior that causes a & # 39; turmoil & # 39; caused – everything from a social media blunder to not being constantly smiling at public performances – could be criticized for years.
Many are constantly being followed by paparazzi and camera-touting fans who share every detail and image of the stars' daily lives online for public research.

& # 39; This & # 39; idols & # 39; live virtually in a fish bowl and are forced to put on a smiley, happy face while behaving well 24/7, & # 39; said cultural commentator Kim Seong-Soo, adding that she & # 39; is emotionally paralyzed & # 39; could hit.
Such challenges are common among celebrities around the world, he told AFP, but they are reinforced in the hyper-wired South, which has some of & # 39; the world's fastest internet speeds and the highest smartphone usage, and a society where compliance is high is.
Taboos about mental illness keep many from seeking medical help, including public figures, he added.
