 Namyangju Police Station filed a report that said the singer was drinking with her friends, according to Allkpop. 

The report states she excused herself to go to the bathroom at 9.55pm, but did not return for some time. 

When her two friends checked on her, she was ‘found slouched over the sink, unconscious,’ the report said. They performed CPR while waiting for emergency responders to arrive at the house, it added. 

The singer’s death was first announced last month by her agency, XANADU Entertainment, in a statement.

‘We are here to share sorrowful and heartbreaking news. Park Bo Ram suddenly passed away late at night on April 11,’ the statement said.

‘All of the artists and executives at XANADU Entertainment are deeply mourning the deceased with great sadness.

‘It is even more heartbreaking that we have to tell you this sudden news to all of the fans who support Park Bo Ram.

‘The funeral will be held after consulting with the bereaved’s family. Once again, we send our deepest condolences to the deceased so she may rest in peace.’

Park is not the first young South Korean celebrity to die in recent years. Last year, 25-year-old singer Moonbin was found dead in his apartment. His death was put down to suicide.

K-drama actress Park Soo Ryun died at the age of 29 in June 2023. She died after falling down a set of stairs.
