It is currently being reported that Sojin, a DSP Entertainment trainee who participated in the reality program “Kara Project: the Beginning,” has passed away.
Hankook Finance reported that around 2:07pm on February 24, she was found unconscious in a garden of an apartment building by a passerby who called the police. Media outlet 10Asia reported that she unfortunately passed away after being transported to a nearby hospital.
Sojin was a trainee under DSP Entertainment for five years, and was part of the top four who made it to the live broadcast of “Kara Project.” Ultimately, she did not become a member of Kara.
