The final resting place of Goo Hara has been revealed for fans wanting to make a pilgrimage to the Kara singer following her death at the age of 28 this week.

It was confirmed on Sunday the star’s body was found in her Cheongdam home, with the cause of her death still being investigated.

Now her agency has revealed where fans can continue to pay their respects, after allowing them to mourn in a funeral hall separate to that of Goo’s grieving family.

In a statement, the agency apologised for causing confusion for those planning to visit after the final times were changed from midnight Wednesday to 24 hours earlier, according to Soompi.

‘We apologise for causing confusion to many domestic and overseas fans who were planning to pay their respects after we changed the [last date of visits] from November 27 at midnight to November 26 at midnight,’ the statement, translated to English read.

‘We are announcing the details of her final resting place for those who are coming from abroad to pay their respects to the deceased and those who were not able to pay their respects yet.

‘Final resting place : Bundang Sky Castle Memorial Park.’

The statement continued: ‘We thank everyone for mourning and commemorating her after the unfortunate news.

‘May she rest in peace.’

Goo was a member of the girl group Kara, which was originally made up of seven members, but the current line-up now consists of Hara, Gyuri, Seungyeon and Youngji.

The singer’s death comes just months after she allegedly attempted to take her own life after leaving concerning messages on Instagram. Her manager called the 119 Rescue Center and she was then taken to hospital.

And in the wake of her passing, a memorial altar was set up at St Mary’s Hospital in the South Korean capital.

Pictures from the hall show a picture of Goo in a frame, surrounded by roses, lilies and daisies and numerous candles.

Police have ruled out foul play in Goo Hara’s death, saying that a handwritten note was found at the scene.
