Park Boram, A K-Pop singer And Competitor For “Superstar K2,” Passes Away At 30

South Korean singer Park Boram tragically passed away at the age of 30, according to her agency, Xanadu Entertainment.

Park Boram’s career had been progressively growing over the previous ten years. Boram passed away from cardiac arrest at a friend’s house while she was there with two other women, according to The Korea Herald. About an hour after being taken to the hospital, she passed away. Currently, police are looking into the death’s cause.

Since her initial appearance as a contestant on Mnet’s “Superstar K2” in 2010, when she placed eighth, Boram has enjoyed success in her home Korea. Her first single, “Beautiful,” was released in 2014. It peaked at No. 2 on Korea’s Circle Digital Chart. That song, which dealt with the pressure to live up to beauty ideals, was semi-autobiographical.

The following year, she released her debut EP, “Celepretty,” the title tune of which made it into the top 10 again. She released her second EP, “Orange Moon,” in 2017 amid a run of one-off singles and joint ventures with musicians like Eric Nam and Park Kyung. She then released soundtrack tunes and solo recordings.

The two singles she released earlier this year are “I Hope” and “I Miss You.” In preparation for her tenth anniversary as a recording musician this summer, Boram was working on an album.
