    K-pop star Gu Ha-ra, who was found dead of apparent suicide in her house on Sunday, left a note before she died.

    "A note that appears to have been written by Gu was found on a table in her living room," police said. They did not reveal what it said but added the note expressed pessimism about her situation.

    According to police, Gu returned to her home in the Gangnam area of southern Seoul at around midnight on Saturday.

    Her maid tried to contact her several times on Sunday, but Gu did not return her calls. The housekeeper finally went to Gu's house and found her lying dead on her bed at around 6 p.m. A police officer said the note is "too short" to be considered a will.

    There were no signs of forced entry into the house, ruling out foul play, so no autopsy will be conducted.

    A memorial altar was set up at Gangnam Severance Hospital on Monday but the funeral will be private. A separate altar was set up at St. Mary's Hospital in Seocho-dong where fans can pay their last respects to her until Tuesday night.
