[2009.09.23] Kara's Nicole: "I want to be like Lee Hyori Sunbae"

Kara's Nicole: "I want to be like Lee Hyori Sunbae"

1252169271hhs0692s.jpg

Kara's Nicole, who has been promoting their 2nd album, chose Lee Hyori as the sunbae she wanted to be most like.

On the upcoming episode of "Star English" on channel EBS airing on the 24th, Nicole will talk about her student years in the US and how it led up to her becoming a singer.

Born in Glendale, California, Nicole arrived in Korea 3 years ago to become a singer. "While I was in school I was really into sports, choir and orhcestra. As I got older, I slowly began dancing a lot as well."

Then she submitted a personal video of her singing and dancing through the internet to the management company and thus debuted. "The best part about coming to Korea was meeting great companions. It was hard going to school and also being an entertainer, but people helped me overcome the difficulties."

When asked the question of entertainers she looked up to, she chose Lee Hyori without hesitation. "She becomes a pro on stage, but I like her offstage candid image. I also want to become a singer like that and be with fans for a long time."

In addition she chose Rain as the singer she wanted to perform with, and revealed an episode about when she saw a Rain performance before her debut.

In discussing her recent slim figure and good shape, "I did the Danish diet," she said. "I want to show fans a great image."

In discussing the "Girl Group Golden Age," she said that Kara's charm is that they give off a close, intimate feeling.

Nicole is so cute. (:

Lee Hyori is pretty well rounded from a singer to actress to variety, etc.

Nicole's journey to becoming a singer sounds interesting to watch.

Thanks for translating.

Ohhh Nicole is finally going to talk about her background! Her life in the US has always been so mysterious :D

"Star English" --? Does it mean that the show is entirely in English? Or just about oversea stars? -confused-

Anyways, it's great to know the Cole looks up to Hyori, who is an EXCELLENT role model because she's so succesful in many areas of the showbiz and a great performer, no less! <3

PS: Cole looking GREAT in that picture! <3

I like her choices. She wants to be like Hyori, who's very well-rounded, and she wants to sing with Rain, who is just excellent. She wants to be like Hyori for good reasons. hyori is but just like the article says, she has such a good image both onstage and offstage, just like Nicole does. She is just too cute. Thanks for the translation.

I honestly see Nicole as the next Hyori. She has all the potential and they both started off from a girl group and from the same company.

I'm glad this article reveals more about her past in America. I was very confused since some people said she was born in USA and others that she was born in Korea but moved to USA at a young age.

Lee Hyori is a good choice : she is a good and professional singer. I love Rain too !

Kara looks up to Hyori so much ! :D It's not really a surprise though considering Hyori was previously under DSP as well.

Danish diet? I looked that up, and it's crazy hard...It's also not recommended for young people...

Anyways, it's cool Nicole has someone to look up to :D

Wa~ah ^^ Rain .. His dance moves are so epic.. Nicole and rain would be sooo powerful as a dance duo on stage *-* I feel that Hyori has left a deep impression on KARA, not just on nicole.. When she performed with them and stuff ^^ They really look up to her ^^ KARA is getting alot of love and support these days.. I'm pretty sure they'll be performing with many different artists ^^

Nicole is one of my favorite members among Kpop girl groups.

She's so cute!

She's heading towards one of her ultimate goals.

I wish she could be like Lee Hyori.

every time they are linked with Fin.K.L (members) I think it could be awkward

but Kara imo has some potential to be as good as their sunbae

Nicole's background is also very interesting, especially that she did some choir and orchestra in the past :)
