Gangnam police have launched an investigation into K-pop singer Koo Ha-ra after her boyfriend called them over her alleged violence against him.

They said the boyfriend, a hair designer, called them at 3:30 a.m. Thursday, claiming the violence started after he suggested they break-up. The alleged incident happened at Koo's house in Gangnam, southern Seoul.

Koo claims her boyfriend assaulted her. Further details are unknown.

"We will soon summon Koo and her boyfriend for questioning," an investigator said.

Recently, Koo was rumored to have attempted suicide, which turned out to be groundless. Her agency said it was a blow-up of her hospital visit for a health checkup.

Koo debuted as a member of K-pop girl band KARA in 2008. After its disbandment in 2016, she switched careers to acting.
