[2010.02.07] KARA lands in Japan!

65 posts in this topic

akr2010020700790000501i.jpg

Popular girl group KARA flew to Japan for their first showcase, and yesterday, February 6, we had the chance to interview them at Tokyo's New Otani Hotel.

With around 100 people attending the event, the KARA members greeted everyone in Japanese, expressing that "We are very nervous for our first showcase here in Japan."

When asked what their charm is, leader Park Gyuri answered "A lot of people tell us that we're warm and fresh and lively.. I guess we are like the girlfriend who lives in next door"

The showcase to be held today, February 7, was originally supposed to be a one-time showcase only. But because of the number of fans that had wanted to attend the event, another showcase was added, making it 2 showcases, with around 3000 fans attending. Han Seungyeon, who spoke in fluent Japanese, said "We're really happy. Its our very first showcase but a lot of fans are supporting us, so we are very thankful for that. All the members are nervous and excited."

When asked about their individual talents, leader Park Gyuri answered "My mom used to dub for Japanese Manhwas, so I got her talent of voice impersionations", and went on to show her cute talent. Maknae Kang Jiyoung said "My strongest trait is that I'm the youngest." Meanwhile Jung Nicole stated that "Its dance and cooking. I really like to cook."

Han Seungyeon went on to say that "I'm not young anymore, but my talent is looking younger than my real age", while member Goo Hara said that "My free-spirited nature is my strong point."

I see the results of the 88-line unnies continuous practice of their Japanese ^^

I'm sure Nicole, Hara and Jiyoung also studied hard and they'll be fluent in no time ^^

Its nice to hear the warm welcome of their fans there and the amount of support and love they get there ^^

Thank you very much for the translations Tin onni ^^ and for the tip off Anne onni ^^
