PETALING JAYA, July 29 — Former K-pop star Mina of the girl group AOA has reportedly been hospitalised after a suspected suicide attempt.
A report by Korean newspaper Hankook Ilbo stated that the 27-year-old allegedly attempted to take her own life this morning at her home.
She was discovered by an acquaintance who came over to check on her after Mina failed to respond to calls or texts.

She is believed to be recuperating but has yet to regain consciousness.
Her representatives have not issued a statement on the incident at the time of writing.
