K-pop star Park Bo Ram’s cause of death revealed 6 weeks after body was discovered at friend’s house

South Korean pop superstar Park Bo Ram died of acute alcohol poisoning, an autopsy has revealed.

The 30-year-old singer’s lifeless body was discovered last month at her friend’s home in Seoul, South Korea.

At the time, police said Ram was with two other women at the property when she collapsed after suffering a cardiac arrest, The Korean Herald reports.

Despite being rushed to the hospital, the singer died an hour after her body was found.

An autopsy of her death showed that Ram was also suffering from fatty liver disease, as well as liver lesions, according to a Korean news outlet.

Namyangju Police Station filed a report that the singer was drinking with her friends, the outlet added. 

She excused herself to go to the bathroom at around 9:55 p.m. on April 11.

However, she did not return for some time.

When her friends went to check up on her, the singer was found “slouched over the sink, unconscious,” the autopsy report states.

A wake was held for the singer on April 17, which was attended by her family, friends, and several fellow K-pop stars.

News of Ram’s death was confirmed 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,” they said.

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

The agency continued, “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.”

The singer rose to fame at age 16 after competing at a South Korean talent competition “SuperStar K2” in 2010, finishing in 8th place.

Her appearance earned her a deal with an agent, who booked her to record the soundtrack for “Always” for the television series “49 days” in 2011.

Three years later, Ram won the “Artist of the Year” award in South Korea for her track “Beautiful,” which propelled her to release her debut album “Celepretty” the following year.

At the time of her death, Ram was gearing up to release her second studio album to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the release of “Celepretty.”
