glad to read kara is attracting fans of all ages & both sexes of (almost) equal share.

those fans are the one who chose to spend big just to get the chance to meet the girls.

their supports shown & comments speak for all kamilia.

no matter where kara goes, there're kamilia.

so that's jj, hope she is able to help with what she saw/heard.

the girls need every bit of external helps into the japan mega market.

thanks to ss501 too, for promoting the girls unconditionally.

& thank you so much for this, aank1.

Thank you so much for translating this! It's pretty long! Thanks for your hard work! and you even translated the captions ><

I want to shake hands with Kara too!!!!!

Before I start my rant below, haha I have to say this. Gyuri is a wonderful leader. She's always caring for her members, taking the lead while letting the members have the spotlight, but just always there to pull through. Ham, Cole, Hara and Jing are like the hands and legs, working and each bringing Kara to another level. Gyul is the heart. Her efforts and dedication lets each part go further.

I've said this so many times, but I'm so happy Kara is off to a good start (of course I still have my worries, see the Japan debut note), but with more and more news, the better I feel about this. And I'm so glad that they have lots of female fans. Not that I don't like male fans, but it's just that sometimes ppl undermine Kara's talents by saying they're cute and suit the market bla bla bla. (There were ppl saying that 4minute would attract the female fans, while Kara attracts the male, which is completely untrue and seen on Karaholic too.) No, they are talented and they work hard and are very genuine girls. Being tough doesn't mean everything you sing about needs to be "i'm at the top, you're not, so get out of here, i can stand on my own...".

I did hope for a new song, but I really do like Mister because it's a song with great impact and good to introduce Kara to ppl who don't know about them yet. And it will appeal to fan boys, girls, older women because its about what a girl growing up is thinking about a crush. And then Lupin would be the perfect, more grown up follow up song. And of course something new ><.

Anyway, I love the pic with the little girl in pigtails carried by her Dad in the pic. Don't know if she's a fan, but it's like, Kara is even approved by mom and dad....reminds me of Kara performing Pretty Girl at one of the shows and lots of girls were following along singing about how every girl can be pretty >< kekeke. And then still be charismatic with Lupin and doing a cover of Again and Again.

Gosh...i love this article, its quite give insight on how their handshaking meeting going...and true that KaRa appealed to variety of age and gender...hope that JJ give good review about them too. I used to think that ss501 never really try to promote their dongsaeng, but apparently they did it, in a foreign land also...DSP line rock! Really looking forward for their Japan activities..

Thanks a lot anky for the effort to translate this quite long article...

I would love to see Kara in JJ!!!! ^-^ AHH!!! I hope Kara is more popular than 4minute ^-^" hehe. Sorry I'm just really competitive.

I saw them talking in Japanese and I could tell they were having a hard time. I hope they improve ^-^

Gyuri is destined to be Kara's leader. xD lol. I'm glad that younger fans like them too ^-^ Cuz then it'll be the parent's money buying more than one of Kara's album!! xD lol. But, I really wish that Mister will be #1 on the Oricon Chart when it comes out xD lol...

I can't wait 4 months TT^TT wahhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

my wish for now:

I hope they get on JJ magazine!!!!

Yah ~ whoo, of course this event went smoothly with no disappointment. I would die to shake their hands (:

That's no surprise that there are more female fans then male fans. It's no problem really. As long as they have fans,

I'm happy for them! Hope to hear more about their time in Japan. Thanks!
