OH MY FREAKING GOD the album cover is DAEBAK! It's like DSPoor finally chose to put some effort and money into producing a good concept for our girls >DDD. And OMG there's a song just for kamilia too, although it's going to be the korean version of IOA ^_____^.

DSP please release some teaser pics or vids ahh can't take it much longer =(.

danngg, to me, it actually reminds me of 4minute's hot issue. am i the only one that thinks that?

either that OR the remix version of lupin from MBC gayo daejun? dangg, i dont know why. but it just reminds me of it. hmm IDK.

but anywho! since they're gonna have an acoustic version of "na neun"..are they gonna re-record their voices? cause i wanna hear improvements. HARA AND JIYOUNG?! :D

gawshh, i'm so excited to hear and see the new and improved kara :)

Awesome <33 I'm getting vibes from Jumping, Wanna and maybe a bit of Pretty Girl... I can't wait! I'm really looking forward to their live performances because this time, they can really get creative with the outfits... Unlike their recent songs (especially Jumping), they can mix and match whatever they want instead of just changing the color scheme! ^^

I can't wait! AH! The concept seems like a colorful, funky concept. And looking at the Twitter pics, I see the word "Lupin", and the setting reminds me of the Johnny Rockets... hm, interesting. Well I can't wait for their comeback! So many comebacks next month, I seriously can't wait! -Squeals

Totally loving the new concept.... I'm SO happy that DSP is actually putting real effort into this. Daebak!! and Me(ing) is going to be KARA's first acoustic song and it's such an awesome ballad too :D

To be honest, I think KARA is going to sweep the music awards this time round. Both K-Kamilias and non-fans are so gonna love this new album. <3

Okay, pre-ordered the Limited version now :thumbup:

and then I will get the regular edition to support the joint purchase project. Which will be great since they'll have different photo books anyway lol. The cover looks AMAZING btw, definitely their best one yet. The concept I get is like a punk rave sorta feel, but whatever the point is they look great!~!~!~

I'm pretty sure Dear Kamilia is the Korean version of IOA and I hope they re-recorded the vocals for the Acoustic version of ...Ing since I know their vocals have improved SO much since the Pretty Girl era, plus Kara's gotten pretty great at singing in an acoustic style lately, like with the Jumping intro at Niigata and I'll Write You A Letter. Anyways, KARA fighting!~

I'm totally lovibg that limited edition album cover. Just wanna say the red-headed goddess is so woow! She rocks this concept! I like Cole's long hair but.. that little thing on her head... I mean they could have made it into a small bun.. But other that that I LOVE her outfit<33!!

If I were to list what I want for this concept..In order it would be..

1) An awesome song!

2) Better vocals~ Like... maybe they should lower the bg vocals so their voices can be heard clearer>.<

3) A ballad stage<33 PLEAASSEEEE, just one will shut me up! >.<

4) Awesome dance moves! Like something more complicated then Lupin? ..ahhh! just cool choreography!

5) Awesome MV. Truth be told, I didn't like the Lupin MV that much. I mean, kindof cheap back drops.. I mean they could've dance maybe in a pile of diamonds or something along that line... Is there really no other other thing to do but a close up plus dance MV? omg, I could so picture the kara girls walking out of those Mr. Club and Lupin store :DD!! So yeah... but y'know... I'll probably still be happy with just seeing them LOL

6)Awesome concept. Yeah, I put this sixth because.. well, I care about the other stuff more >.<

So yeah... what do you guys hope for this comeback? ^^ .. since I'm like super picky and contradictory xD

^YESS OMG A BALLAD STAGE. Something that shuts everyone up because KARA's live vocals are so flawless. PLEASEE DSP haha that'd be so awesome. But yeah I think I just really want a song that blows me away haha. I'm really excited to see the choreography and I agree with you completely about the MV.

sigh i can't wait to hear this song. 8)

EEE it'd be so awesome there were really awesome photoshoots involved in the 3 week promotional period lmao. With Vogue korea or elle or whatever haha just something really awesome and classy

Haha, as long as the title track isn't a ballad than I'm OK. I'm not a big fan of ballads but I do love Kara's, just they need songs with pop and pow for this comeback. I'm also over trying to make people see that Kara can sing. Even if they do a ballad people will probably just use it as more "proof" that they can't sing, even though the ballad would prove otherwise. Kara is talented and as long as the people who support them know that...I'm OK with antis saying otherwise. They do nothing for Kara so now-days I'm just like "why should I care what you think?" you don't support them by buying their albums or voting for them in public polls, so who cares what you say. They aren't spreading anything bad amongst the general population because only anti's care to read bad things about artist. Their fans just ignore those negative press. Anti info is for anti fans only. It's hard to convert anti's....most anti's who do "convert" were just fans in denial anyways :tongue:

so....I pre-ordered the SE version. And I will definitely get the regular version too!! I can't do the joint purchase thing since I don't have PayPal and I'm uncomfortable with concealed cash...Western Union is too much of a hassle, which is sad cause I would love to be apart of it. Maybe I'll make a donation to Karaholic for the food thing, if you don't need paypal for that? Ahh I'm so excited!! I hope we Kamilia can really show Kara that we are here for them 1000% and we are more motivated than ever before to help them shine!! I wish I could be apart of the more hands on stuff!! maybe next time?

FINALLY, DSP. THANK YOU FOR DOING SOMETHING RIGHT. THIS CHANNEL WILL BE AMAJING <3

I hope DSP has put music before anything else for this album. It is the third one after all, and it's been too long... It would be also be nice for the members to be given parts that actually show their musical and vocal talents. Oh, and a ballad? Please, a ballad? I'm dying too hear a new one from our lovely girls especially since Jumping did not have one. I love the look of this concept. It looks fun, energetic, bright, and fresh. Not cutesy, but not over-the-top sexy or dark.

Despite the short promotion period, let's make this one the best yet <3

I so happy that DSP did something right. That this comeback is going to a big comeback, I think since DSP releaze that KARA is a international superstar now. They have fan from around the world, and they are so huge in Japan. They would have to bring out the big guns for KARA comeback. So why not have a youtube channel for KARA. KARA is going to amazing us with this comeback, can't wait for it. I'm love Stepember more and more. I do want their second song that they are going to perform would be a ballad, so they people can realize that KARA does have a voice. But I think between ing and IOA, I think ing would showcase their voice more than IOA. Since I think IOA is nice and sweet and beautiful, but doesn't showcase their vocals as ing does. But I don't care as long as it a ballad song. DSP is bring out the big guns for KARA comeback, a perfume, and a youtube account. DSP realize KARA not only have fans in Korea, but they are the number 1 korean girl group in japan. So you have to think about the japanese fans to, since they would probably have more fans in japan than korea. I just check tower record in japan, KARA is number 1 on pre-order for Step. This is big, japan defintely want KARA album. This album is going to be big, they are probably going to sell more of this album, then any other album. Since they have a whole much of japanese fan wait for them
