  1. Sports Chosun article: http://sports.chosun.com/news/utype.htm?id=201308200100158100012039&ServiceDate=20130819 Article translation by me. Kara will be presenting their group omnibus five-episode one-act dramas for the first time through the MV for their new comeback single “One of Two (Runaway)”. On the coming 21st, Kara will be making it public their single “One of Two (Runaway)” which will mark their comeback with a full studio album. And they will be making public the digital single and the MV for the song. Specially, it is drawing a lot of interest because there will be highlights from the Cine-Drama “Secret Love” which Kara collaborated with PD Kim, Gyu-Tae who directed the SBS drama “That winter, where the wind blows”. “Secret Love” is an omnibus project where they made one-act drama for each five members of Kara, which they’ve completed the filming and are working diligently in editing for broadcasting in the latter half of this year. However, they felt that the single “One of Two (Runaway)” made a very nice harmony with Kim PD’s beautiful unique images and decided to show approximately 2 minutes of certain highlights of the drama in the music video for the first time before the set broadcast company’s final edit version. Furthermore, because Kara is a top act that represents K-Pop artists and that each members are acting as the lead in each episode, there is much interest for the new MV for “One of Two (Runaway)” not only in Korea but also from Japan, Taiwan and other nations of Asia. The single “One of Two (Runaway)” is a song with a medium tempo and was written by a composer Shim, Eun-Ji and will showcase much improved vocal abilities and new charms of Kara. Kara will make public the new single “One of Two (Runaway)” on the 21st and will have a comeback showcase on September 2nd where they are planning to make public their title track “I can’t be a lady”. 카라가 발매를 앞둔 선공개곡 '둘 중에 하나(Runaway)'의 뮤직비디오를 통해 자신들의 '단막 드라마'를 최초 공개한다. 카라는 오는 21일, 정규 4집 앨범의 컴백 첫 신호탄인 선공개곡 '둘 중에 하나(Runaway)'를 발표, 음원과 뮤직비디오를 공개한다. 특히 이 곡의 뮤직비디오에는 SBS드라마 '그 겨울, 바람이 분다'의 김규태PD와 카라가 합작한 씨네 드라마 '시크릿 러브'의 하이라이트 영상이 최초 공개될 예정으로 더욱 기대를 모으고 있다. '시크릿 러브'는 카라 다섯 멤버 각자가 모두 주인공이 되어 5편의 단막극으로 제작되는 드라마로 최근 모든 촬영을 마치고 올 하반기 국내 방영을 목표로 편집작업에 한창인 상태. 하지만 카라의 선공개곡 '둘 중에 하나(Runaway)'가 김규태PD 특유의 아름다운 영상미와 적절한 조화를 이룬다고 판단, 방송사 공식 편성 전 약 2분 분량의 주요 영상을 뮤직비디오를 통해 최초 공개하기로 결정했다. 특히 한국을 대표하는 K팝 아티스트 카라가 각자 주연을 맡는 드라마인 만큼, 국내는 물론 일본, 대만 등 아시아 주요 국가에서도 이번 '둘 중에 하나(Runaway)' 뮤직비디오 공개에 큰 관심을 모으고 있다. 선공개곡 '둘 중에 하나(Runaway)'는 카라의 한층 향상된 보컬 실력과 새로운 매력을 만나볼 수 있는 미디움 템포의 곡으로, 작곡가 '심은지'가 참여했다. 한편 카라는 21일 선 공개 곡 '둘 중에 하나(Runaway)'를 발표하고, 오는 9월 2일 컴백 쇼케이스를 통해 타이틀곡 '숙녀가 못 돼'의 첫 공개에 나설 예정이다.
  2. I'm opening this discussion for us to have a guide to help KARA for this comeback: : 카라 : KARA : 숙녀가 못 돼 : Can't Be A Lady (Damaged Lady) : 둘 중에 하나 : Runaway First two are no brainers: #1 - Buy the album (!!!) If you plan to buy via YesAsia, please use Karaholic's link. It would also be nice if you refrain from sharing download links for the whole album. Check to see if the sales will add to Hanteo (YesAsia and GMarket does). That's quite important. Physical sales may not have a big bearing on the Music Shows, but it does earn more for KARA and DSP. #2 - Watch the MV on Youtube - create a playlist (F5, Replay, Youtuberepeaters DO NOT WORK). Refresh your browser cache after about 50 repeats. Clear/Remove from your YT Watch History. Also watch it thru iMBC and Gaon. If you have a blog, add this to the top. It will autoplay the video for every visitor. It might be annoying so don't hide it so that visitors can pause the vid. <iframe width="480" height="360" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/_vHw17-zFa4?autoplay=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> #3 - Vote! - I know, we're one of the laziest fandom in terms of voting. But if they lose because of the lack of votes, we have no one to blame but ourselves and we don't want that, do we? Let's make our votes count on the charts that matter. SMS Voting is counted per phone number, so it really doesn't cost much for that one SMS to M!Countdown (text "카라" to +82-2-2566) and one SMS to MuCore (text "KARA" to +82-2-0505) and one SMS to Inkigayo (text "카라" to +82-2-1245). #4 - Build the hype by searching on Search portals - by having them trend on Search portals, ordinary Koreans will be curious and might download the song adding to the Digital sales. It will also help if we unanimously search at certain times (i.e. after a music show performance, after a tv guesting, every 12noon lolz). Check the shoutbox for the term that's trending for the day/event. ~ Naver | Daum | Nate | Melon ~ If you want to be lazy, use this site and have it cycle for 301-400 secs (That's roughly every 5 mins, but it's nice to not set it too exact lest you be tagged as spam). #5 - Build the hype on SNS (Twitter, FB, me2day, IG) - use the tags #KARA #카라 #숙녀가못돼 Twitter: Do not use a tag after another (ie I like #KARA #숙녀가못돼) because it'll be considered a spam. Instead write words in between (ie I love #KARA and their latest song #숙녀가못돼 is the best). Gaon Social Chart: Sign up to Gaon and add points to KARA's Social Chart (tutorial and tips from another site). me2day: Make sure to click the me2 for all KARA official me2day post. Let it make it to the top stories. FB: Follow KARA's official FB page. Like their posts. FB now has hashtags, use it. But after this, what else can we do? Please add what you know we can do to help. (Unsure - if anyone can verify please do) Streaming Music Online (the 1 minute sample) every hour for Digital Streaming points - some say it adds to the digital streaming, some say it doesn't. It doesn't take much of your time, so it wouldn't hurt to do this. Clear cache before/after doing this for the hour. Bugs | Melon | Olleh Music | MNet | Soribada | Daum | Monkey3 Korean proxy sites: list 1 list 2 - some say to use a Korean proxy to make the streaming count. I've read somewhere that if you stream on Naver with a foreign IP, it'll be a deduction instead of adding to the points. This Streaming on Bugs using Facebook acct tutorial shows you need to change your IP. And if you do it this way, the streaming will definitely count. But it's 1 FB account for a 1-day pass, so use it wisely. I'd say use it for CBAL than Runaway.

  5. Kara to Use Clips from ′Secret Love′ as MV for ′Runaway′ If you′ve been waiting all this time for Kara′s drama, you′ll be well rewarded if you check out the group′s next music video. On August 21, Kara will release the preview track Runaway from its fourth studio album along with a music video made of scenes from its upcoming short drama Secret Love. test This will be the first time highlights from the drama will be revealed to the public. Secret Love is a five-episode drama that stars each of the Kara members in each episode, and is currently in editing with an aim to air late this year. It is being directed by producer Kim Gyu Tae of SBS′ That Winter, the Wind Blows. Before the drama′s actual airing, however, staff decided that its beautiful scenery fit Runaway′s mood well, and agreed to release a two-minute clip as a music video for the song. The music video and drama are expected to draw much interest not only from Korea, but also Japan, Taiwan and other Asian countries as Kara boasts great influence in those regions as a global K-Pop star. Runaway is a medium-tempo track written by composer Shim Eun Ji. Kara will release Runaway on August 21, then make an official comeback on September 2 with the rest of its album, its promotional single I Can′t Become a Lady and a showcase.
