[2009.09.26] Kara, as they made the "common worker" image

41 posts in this topic

2dlkfly.jpg

For celebrities, creating an image for themselves is crucial in order to attract popularity. With DBSK's "evolving idol", and 2PM's "tough idol", they were able to gain more attention.

For girl groups however, there aren't many themes that can be suitable. Ordinarily, girl groups usually create a 'fairy' image, enough not to even use the restroom in public. In other cases, by instilling their female charms, create an 'ideal girlfriend' image for male fans.

Slipping away from this unwritten rule and creating a unique image for themselves was 'Kara'

Awhile ago, as Kara revealed their dorms, they received the 'common worker' image. Compared with other female groups from the three big companies, SM-JYP-YG, their dorms gave off a more plain feel.

DSP entertainment, who gave rise to top idol groups such as Fin K.L and Sechs Kies, may not approve of Kara's 'common worker' image. However, the actual results showed that this image gave them uniqueness and individuality from within the girl group market.

DSP created the image ... though it was probably unintentional :D.. but it works for KARA and in looking at it now, it's what makes them different from the others.. and more people can relate to them.

thanks jin.

^ yeah exactly. (: It makes the girls easier to relate to. It shortens the distance between the idols and the fans because, well, you know that the girls are humans instead of some perfect superstars that are unattainable.

Thanks for the translation!

Their dorm is better than nothing. But I do think that DSP should give them a better place to stay.

As long as the girls are comfortable and feel at home, I myself feel happy for them.

To be honest, I like it.

They are more relatable as a person from what I see.

It just shows how hardworking as a person is can get you somewhere.

This is the reason I like KARA, so much,

they are slowing progressing and differentiating

from the other idol groups around at the moment.

But, I wish DSP gave a bigger dorm or a better one,

but if KARA likes it that way, no problem.

i really like the image they give off... its very fun and girly, which makes sense because they are teenage girls... its not too cute or too mature... its perfect for them and it makes me love them even more... :D

Actually, KARA giving that name "common worker"

seems perfect for them. it makes us remember that they are just like us, regular human beings.

plus, it brings us closer to the girls.

KARA has worked so hard to be successful.[
&& are climbing even more
]

Look at them now & compare to what they were before.

They are a GREAT ROLE MODEL to other kids even adults.

NEVER GIVE UP is the KEY but just keep trying AND TRYING.

And now it's like:

They don't follow their dreams but instead THEIR DREAMS FOLLOW THEM.

ex: getting great deals like Cfs.

KARA IS HERE TO STAY!

KARA FTW!

maybe DSP secretly created this image although they don't want to admit it, they don't have to as well lol

it's like you do your best and never give up, no matter what. your day will come

and that's how Kara is, yeah proud of them :)

I also agree that I like this title for Kara...

Because with this people would feel closer to them...

That they are just like us and they are not hard to reach ^^

And would feel comfortable around them...XD

Thank you very much for the translations Jin ^^

That's precisely why I've fallen for them xD They seem like real girls-next-door. Like, they're absolutely gorgeous, but they seem like they'd be fun to hang out with, that they struggle to wake up in the morning like everyone else. I think that has the effect of, in some ways, making them all the more attractive to the fans than if they had the unattainable image

i actually love kara's dorm. Even thro. it is small but it is cozy and filled with the kara love.

it think it is really cozy and home-ly to me. (:

the girls dont need to have a big house to be happy,

they dont need a room for each person to be happy.

all they need is a cozy house with each other !

if they had a big room at fit 5 person then its better !!

its gonna be warm and cozy !! the girls giggling with jokes and feel warmth !!!

DSP maybe unintentional for this image to be gained , but its unique ~

well the girls are good with the cozyness ~~

this also shows us that they too are regular humans , not those just enjoy popularity and wealth ..

Kara roxx !!! high five for the girls !!!

thx for the post !!

I dunno... I don't think Kara deserves more than just 'commoners'. ^_^ It's like Gyuri said, she wants people's reactions to Kara appearing on shows as "Wow, it's Kara!" instead of "Oh, it's Kara."

I think their dorm is rather cozy looking, although it would be nice if DSP upgraded it a bit.

Kara has really created a unique image, and I love them for it (:

Thanks for sharing!
