  1. If Ricky is a new artist under B2M then there's no reason why she can't promote track 4 either. A good time to get some exposure for Ricky. But yes, I would like for her to get a double track performance for her comeback as well.
  2. I thought that too, but if you look again, i think she's just taking a picture with her friend sitting beside her... hahaha...

    At least this time they're going through with the show.

    Auditions? DSP, work on the remaining trainees that you have and prep them for a debut before you take on more than you can handle. Majority of your trainees will end up leaving your company for another one before they debut anyway. And with the result of Kara, is this really a good time to be recruiting? Will anyone really apply with this type of track record?... Seeing them not include JiYoung and Nicole in Kara's picture is quite disheartening. I mean, JiYoung is still technically part of the group, her contract ends in April, it's still March. Makes me think that the split wasn't amicable. Were bridges burnt?
  5. I really want to know if this is how the new head of the company is dealing with this whole issue. You know, the guy that was formally at SBS. Wasn't he brought in from the 2011 incident to ease the tension from both sides? What is his part now, has he become more of the wife's worker, looking out more for her benefit rather than the company and the girls? I'm just really curious about this. I'm really trying to keep myself silent until everything is fully figured out but it's just really confusing and I guess unusual. Everything is playing out quite odd to me.

    Like how Kangta, Boa, and U-Know are like the poster child for SM, GyuRi is the poster child for DSP. Her support and loyalty for them is endless.
  7. I agree, she was literally in her own little world with the fans during the finale... hahaha... She was holding on to all the gifts for dear life... hahaha... With the way she was at the concert you would never think that anything would be bothering her, or the girls for that matter. Or even the other DSP family members.
  8. Social

    That's right Nicole, I wrote that quote just for you!...
  9. Probably just me reading too much in to this, but I find it oddly funny. In all of the DSP Festival promotional videos, every single member in each group get to say something, a line of their own, but with Kara you see Nicole and JiYoung quietly standing and just smiling. Considering the situation, I can understand why, but I still find it funy... hahaha...
  10. Here is what I don't understand. After the contract dispute in 2011, there was a new "boss" in charge, correct? I understand that at the end of the day he works for the owner(s), that would include the wife, but wasn't he brought in to smooth things out for both sides? If the "bad blood" between the two sides still exist then what is/has he been really doing? Of course i understand the wife would have a say but wasn't he brought in to run the business properly? With a mindset of business being the main goal, then why would he not try to compromise the situation and concrete his main income? Seriously, there's many unanswered issues here and not just the main focus, which is Nicole and her final decision.
  11. Single

    I have a few guesses as to who their male lead is. It's either the same guy from Bye Bye Happy Days or HyeongKon from A-Jax.
  12. It's obvious why they removed SS501, they shouldn't have promoted the group from the beginning. It just made people think that there was a possibility of the whole group reuniting. There are members who has enlisted, so there wasn't going to be a chance for them to appear. They should have just promoted who they had now and just leave the "And more..." as the mystery for the fans.
  13. Kara, Rainbow, A-Jax, and Oh Jong Hyuk are the obvious confirmations because they are still active under DSP. SS501 won't be reunited as a group fully because one member just enlisted while another is currently in the midst of his duties, that leaves the other three to possibly make appearances and perform their soloes. The only old time group I see having a possiblity of reuniting is FinKL since all members are still currently active in the entertainment field and they've gather together before. If not, I can see HyoRi making an appearance to show her support. I can also see Eun Ji Won making an appearance to show support as well. The "and more..." part has possibilities of introductions to new groups/trainees that DSP plans to debut in the near future. I really hope Puretty will get their time on stage as well.

    I'm excited to see that DSP is finally planning and even going through with a family concert. My only issue is the timing in which this concert is plan for. Was this something that was in talks for and plan way ahead of time or is it something that has been thrown together last minute because of occuring issues within the company and this is a saving grace/last resort attempt to save face for the company. And with the possible inclusion of previous artistes that have been with the company, it has piqued my interest even more. I wonder if @ultraman88 would know more insider information on this.

    Very impress with Mister. I'm more surprise with Jumping actually, but of course since Japan is the majority, it's not too surprising. Take solace in the fact that Gee was released at the beginning of 2009 (end of January, beginning of February I think) and Mister was released in August or September and Kara still takes the lead... hahaha... But seems to me that the girls haven't or aren't really seeing the fruits of their labour base on this statistic alone, if you know what I mean, but that's just me.
  16. Aw... She got to hang out with Nana as well, and I guess Raina too. Regarding Sistar's venue, they're popular but not to the level where they'll be able to fill a full stadium. When it comes to girl groups, not many can. It took Kara fives years before holding a stadium/arena concert, I don't think even Wonder Girls have manage to do that either, even 2NE1. The only girl group that has is SNSD and then Kara.

    At least JooWon acknowledged that they worked on photoshoots together, unlike Hammie who seems a bit forgetful. Maybe she's just playing hard to get... hahaha... I can see them dating right now in secret and this is their indirect/subtle way of saying they're happy with each other... hahaha,,, He does look a bit like Kang DongWon, and we all know how much Hammie loves him.

    That article about Joo Won; SeungYeon, you've met him already, you even worked with him on a photoshoot, a few actually. Oh, you girl. This girl has worked with some handsome actors before they became big stars, I wonder if she stayed in contact with any of them. Clearly Joo Won isn't one of them. I'm wondering about Kim SooHyun, from their SSGB days.
  19. I've already said my piece in previous posts but I felt like I should say this now. It might come off sounding hypocritical, and I agree, but I feel like it should be said. Just my little two cents, well another one anyway, after what I had posted already.
  20. Again, this is when we all should just sit back and wait until everything is settled and things are confirmed from all parties involved. For a company that never or rarely ever does any media play, they chose the wrong time and most inappropriate situation to do so. Everything right now should be kept private and behind closed doors. Concerning Nicole's mom's connections. I don't follow her mom on twitter or instagram, but I don't see anything wrong with someone posting pictures of people they know. Most of the time I see Nicole appearing on shows and the people that her mom knows happens to be there, they're the ones talking about how they know Nicole and her mom. And it's great to see her mom supporting her and actually looking out for heer best interest, But I do agree on her mom's influence on Nicole. Nicole needs to step away from that a bit more and start being more independant and making her own decisions, especially in a crucial moment like this. Nicole needs to remember that she's the one in the group, not her mom. And I'm reading how people are saying DSP is punishing Nicole for the 2011 incident because it was her mom who initiated the issue. DSP needs to grow up if they're thinking that. Her mom is a seperate person who made the decision on her daugther's behave because she thought that was what was best at that time. The situation was settled so they need to know that Nicole is the one working for you, not her mom. They need to differentiate and not make Nicole get stuck in the middle. If anything, I can see why Nicole might not want to continue with DSP, solely because of this. She's potentially feeling awkward being stuck in between her mom and her agency. Not sure if any of that made sense. But again, this is all assumptions and speculation, which should not be happening right now since we don't know the full story... hahaha...
  21. My initial reaction to all these news was complete shock. I was literally pulling my hair. Nicole was the last member for me to think of leaving first, even with the issues during 2011. And I wanted to keep my opinions to myself until things are made cleared but of course it will be hard to keep mum about such a situation. I agree with majority of my fellow Kamilias about not jumping to conclusion until Nicole herself speaks up about it, because I do agree with the whole announcing this during this crucial time, their tour will probably be a bit awkward and fans and especially anti-fans alike will run rampant in trying to find signs of discord, they will dissect every little single thing at the concert and then some. But if I may play devil’s advocate for a moment here, to those who seems to be placing blame on DSP and their management of Nicole individually, do consider their situation as well. Like someone said, this is a business and in business it all comes down to the money. It’s about your worth, you are a product to them, they might treat you as the best of the best, like royalties, but at the end of the day you are a product. And if you’re not bringing in the money then there’s no point in keeping you. Yes, after the whole 2011 issue the girls might have their say in what they want to do as a group or with individual activities but DSP still has the control. Maybe DSP did give Nicole the chances to have solo activities but she probably didn’t want to do what they had lined up for her, for own personal reasons, but if I were DSP and I’m giving her options and she continuously denies each and every single one then why should I continue to offer her more options when I have others who are willing and ready to do it. That and the fact that she might have probably did all those other activities on her own with her own connections and not with DSP’s influences, that can be a blow to an agencies’ ego when their growing artist has their own connections that is far higher than themselves. I don’t want to sound negative but with what the translated news has reported, DSP did say “…team will not be disbanded and will continue to promote domestically as well as overseas.” But it doesn’t indicate it being as a group or as individuals but still under the Kara name. Again, I might be second guessing here. I can see this turning into another Finkl situation in which the group was “unofficially” disbanded as the members concentrated on individual activities; an indefinite hiatus. And if they look for new members, it would be quite disheartening but I can see all idol wannabes and/or trainees everywhere jumping and clawing their way to audition to be in the group. Who wouldn’t with the group’s success thus far. On another perspective, Nicole might just want to let go of this idol life and just rest for a bit. I’m just worry about the dynamic at the concert and how emotional the girls will be. Knowing Nicole, she would probably still continue giving her all with that bright smile of hers’ but deep down, if all of this is true, she is crying a river inside. If she rarely ever cries than I think this will be the moments in which we will all see her cry the most out of everyone. Yes, I agree that it is Nicole’s choice to make about what she wants to do with her life. She and only she know what’s best for her. Even if her mom has some influence, at the end of the day it’s ultimately her choice to make. Sometimes it does get to a point when you feel you’ve accomplished all you needed to accomplish in this chapter of your life so it’s time to move on to something else, maybe something greater and better. I knew this day would come but I didn’t expect our girls to be the first to do so.
  22. I'm gonna take a gamble and say they won last week's Music Bank. All the numbers pretty much factors in for their win on Music Bank for that week. If anything, there's a possibility that they will this week as well. The other music shows will be a bit more of a stretch especially since it relies mostly on votes and digital counts.
  23. Album

    I don't think they were guests on Happy Together. It was just their song that got featured during the ending credits. I think edr was just listing the shows that featured their songs during the show, mostly the ending credits. But I would love to see them back on Happy Together again. I was hoping for them to guest during Pandora promotion, but nothing. I hope they do so for this promotional cycle.
  24. Album

    Here is my thought, though a lot of us say that sales doesn't matter (all we need to do is just enjoy the releases), I agree but at the end of the day numbers still linger somewhere in our mind. This is a good example of "too much too soon" or "too much of a good thing." It seems to me that their seems to be a lack of communication between UMJ and DSP, two full album releases that coincide within each other? Isn't that a bit of a bad marketing choice on their part? The promotional cycle are clashing. It's like we're getting mixed messaging. In Japan we have innocent, cute, feminine image that Kara promotes and then suddenly at the same time in Korea they have a strong, fierce, womanly concept. It wouldn't be bad if it was at different times like with Pandora and Girls Forever but having it at the same time can be a bit of a confusion for fans and possible new fans to follow, it's like "who is Kara, really?". And as of right now it seems to me that their Korean comeback is overshadowing their Japanese promotions. UMJ might be in charge of their Japanese releases and DSP needs to concentrate on Korea but I would think some say should be made about the release date. And looking at the decline of the albums one after another, I would think they would learn their lesson, everything just seems so rushed each time. I don't know what's going on behind the scenes but there seems to be some issues that needs to be sorted out. Again just my thoughts on this situation.
  25. Album

    Aren't the first two teasers just concept teasers and then the third is the MV teaser? So what we're hearing for the teasers as of now are most likely not going to be the lead single.
