If it's a ballad then I'll faint<3 Because that means they would HAVE to take out those loud bg vocals >.>

btw, I love that gif of the Step Teaser ^^

I prefer they do dancing and singing. However, KARA has the potential to sing ballad and their ballad is nice. :rolleyes:

Well a sweet calm ballad for Winter instead a happy X-mas song, I love the concept, lots of people do cheerful songs and are good, but making another gender like ballad is cool... I will wait for more... (but I think I won't get this one, I won't have money on that time... T_T)

If it a ballad, I think the girls did a great choice in choose to promoted a ballad in japan rather than Korea. I think in japan the girls would get a lot attention for their vocals, and I think ballad song do well in japan. If the girls promotion in korea with a ballad, I would be totally happy. But it could be a hit or miss, so people can be says that KARA can't sing, or some would say that the girls can sing well and has improve. So I like them promotion a ballad in japan. Winter magic does sound like a ballad song.

I really hope it's a ballad. I've always wanted them to promote a ballad as a title track to show off their vocals, but I know that as idols in Korea that it would never happen. The last time they performed a ballad on a music programme was years ago during Prettyy Girl/Honey promotions and I know they've all improved so much since then.

Besides Winter ballads sell really well in Japan and it will make them stand out more against AKB48 who only sing Spring ballads.

Even if it's a rumor, I'm hella excited :D

A BALLAD !!

They can get this kind of chance just in Japan, (in Korea they're mostly looking for catchy songs, which I like, but sometimes a change is good)..

But why October ? Couldn't it be November at least ? Maybe UMJ thought that's the right time for KARA to release something or what ?

It's just that, I wanted STEP promotions to be a bit longer and eventually for the girls to get even just a short rest before promoting in Japan..

BTW.. Can't wait to get more info of this new single, so much for us Kamilia to look forward to, between Korean and Japanese stuff XP

it's either:

- step has a part to play for the 5th japanese single (or winter magic).

or

- packed schedules suggested there's no rest time in-between promotions.

imo ballad for a-side, it won't work (in term of sales).

I'm super interested to see how UMJ is gonna pull this 5th single promotion wise off, since their going from Korean promotions straight to Japanese promotions with no spacing in between most likely.

I personal think a ballad is so ingenious of UMJ, that this single could really help Kara's image and generate more casual fans.

Japan eats up ballads like crazy, and if Winter Magic is a hit and well received by the public, this could be a stepping stone.

I remember when Akb48 released Sakura no Shiori and it really helped their public image and create more fans.

Would prefer a ballad this time round for the festive period

But isn't it a bit too quick since it's only a month difference from their Korea comeback

So this time the are going for ballad. If they do ballad song, they will surely prove their vocal. I'm sad when there's people said our girls can't sing. Maybe this time they can prove to the haters that their accusation is wrong. I hope they will start promoting at the end of October. I wish the girls will stay strong and healthy during this period time. I didn't want to see them exhausted. KARA fighting!!

Omo, this sounds like a wonderful single. Even if it's not confirmed, I'm still very excited to hear that they're doing a winter single. It'll be the perfect way to start the winter season! Hopefully this'll be a big hit for our girls ♥

Eh...I don't know how I feel about this. I know that KARA can definitely produce a ballad, but I wonder if Japan will receive it well...

^ AKB48 has released a ballad before and it was very well-received. So I don't think it's a problem ^^

And personally I think UMJ has made a great decision. I can't wait for our girls to showcase their vocals live~ :D

Wow, another single already? KARA is on a roll in Japan.

Winter Magic sounds like a nice title song name. And if it's a ballad, I'm all for it. It's about time that our girls got more time to let their vocal talents shine.
