Goo Hara's agency requests fans and media outlets to refrain from speculation


Goo Hara's agency has made an announcement regarding reports online.

Following the singer's passing, the Japanese agency Production Ogi streamlined all statements temporarily through the Korean agency 8D Creative.

The Korean company passed on the message to domestic media asking all outlets to refrain from making speculative reports regarding Goo Hara's death.

"Currently, the family members of the deceased, as well as her friends and acquaintances, are going through a tough time from psychological impact and instability. Therefore, we earnestly ask that media outlets and their related personnel, as well as the fans' condolence calls, refrain from spreading rumors or speculative reports," wrote the agency.

The announcement ended on an apologetic note, asking once again for their sensitivity regarding the absence of condolence visits.

For the time being, 8D Creative has been confirmed to take on all domestic release of official announcements from Production Ogi.

While I agree that the privacy of family and loved ones must be respected, the media needs to openly and honestly address the factors that keep leading up to these poor individuals taking their own lives. Hara, Sulli, Jonghyun- all their stories need to be addressed, and the SYSTEMATIC BULLYING AND HARASSMENT needs to be called out by the media! The further issue is that in many cases the media arguably exacerbates this harassment; the fact that so many idols are deemed as expendable by their companies for both large and minuscule issues or even rumors does not help the situation. There needs to be a cultural change in that country, or this will only continue to get worse.
