Heartbreaking news have reached fans with reports of Baby KARA‘s Sojin passing in an apparent suicide after being found unconscious at an apartment in Daejeon, Daedeok-gu. 

Initial reports write that a woman was found unconscious on a flowerbed by a residence official of the apartment on February 24th at 2:07PM KST, and was immediately rushed to the hospital where she sadly passed away. She was later identified as Sojin.

Sojin had been known to have recently been suffering from depression, and according to police, they believe she had jumped from the 10th floor to commit suicide. However, a suicide note has not been yet found, and the police are still investigating to find the exact cause of death. Police stress, “A suicide note was not found so we would like to ask people to refrain from exaggerated reports as well as guess work.”

Known to fans mainly through DSP Media’s Baby KARA series, known as KARA Project: The Beginning, Sojin made a name for herself as she followed the path to fulfill her dreams to become a singer, and was known to be bright and healthy, as well as sexy and mature when taking the stage. She was under DSP Media for five years as a trainee.

Following recent confusion on whether or not Kim Hyun Joong and his ex-girlfriend would be expecting their first child together, both parties have stepped up to clarify the situation. 

On February 24, Kim Hyun Joong’s ex-girlfriend, Choi, spoke through her legal representatives, refuting previous claims that she could not be contacted, stating,“There is enough evidence to confirm the pregnancy and we are considering publicly releasing the information. In addition, Choi and Kim Hyun Joong have been in contact and have even met in person. Even today, the two have been in contact since the morning. However, we can’t release the content of the conversation between them.”

Kim Hyun Joong also released another statement through his agency,KEYEAST, saying, “We are not denying her pregnancy, rather we just wanted to clarify the situation by confirming it, but she has been unresponsive. We first heard news of her pregnancy in January and even received ultrasound pictures via phone messages. After this, Kim Hyun Joong, his father, and an acquantance met with her twice, on January 5th and January 7th. After that, the two have not met in person, but have contacted each other about going to the hospital to check on her and the condition of her body. They have not received her answer on this topic.

“We do not, by any means, dismiss her pregnancy, and like mentioned before, Kim Hyun Joong is fully willing to take responsibility for the child. It is common practice to visit the hospital when a mother is pregnant, to check on both the child and the mother’s conditions. It’s natural for Kim Hyun Joong and his parents to want to know whether or not Choi and the child are well.”

In August 2014, Kim Hyun Joong was accused of assault by his ex-girlfriend whom he had dated since 2012. After giving a sincere and official apology to both his fans and Choi, the two reconciled and she dropped the charges against him. However, one of the four counts of physical violence initially reported by Choi was reviewed by the Seoul courts, and Kim Hyun Joong was fined in January 2015 for 5 million won.

Following news of the artist becoming a father-to-be, Dispatch released a timeline of the events regarding the relationship between the two, including when they had dated, the date of assault, the date of the charges being dropped, and when he had found out of her pregnancy in January 2015.

Actress Shin Se Kyung might star as the lead female role in the upcoming SBSWednesday-Thursday drama series Sense of Men and Women, formerly known as The Girl Who Sees Smell.

While a broadcasting representative on February 22nd announced, “Shin Se Kyung has confirmed her casting and is preparing for the new SBS Wed-Thurs drama series ‘Sense of Men and Women,’” her agency, Namoo Actors, mentioned, “It is true that we got an offer, but we have not confirmed anything yet.”

Due to the importance of the female lead role in the drama, many actresses have been considered as a possible candidate for the role. As a result, there were talks that miss A‘sSuzy might be starring in the drama. However, it seems like Shin Se Kyung might take the role after all. This means that the actress is to make a comeback to the small screen after six months of hiatus since KBS 2TV’s dramaIron Man.

The drama, originally based on a popularity webtoon, deals with a story of a guy who became senseless after losing his sister from a murder case and a girl with extrasensory perception who miraculously survived from the murder case but suffers from a memory loss of the time before the incident. Although the lead female role has an optimistic personality, she is the type of person who cannot just stand injustice. She is weak to the weaker ones and strong to the stronger ones. Due to her hasty personality, however, she often causes inconvenience to people surround her.

The lead male role has been confirmed to be JYJ‘s Park Yoochun a while back. PD Baek Soo Chan and script writer Lee Hee Myungwill work together for the drama.

Meanwhile, Sense of Men and Women is set to air its premiere episode in April after the completion of Hyde, Jekyll and I.
