[2008.12.19] Searching for their color, Kara gains popularity through mini album "Pretty Girl"

26 posts in this topic

"Now we have found our own color!"

sp.jpg

The members' expressions brightened up. Whatever we asked, we got a confident answer.

5-girl group Kara. Despite debuting at the same time as Wonder Girls and SNSD last year, they weren't able to gain a huge fan base.

Usually in this case groups would probably just break up, but Kara instead steadily released a new song that opened the ears of the public, and awaited their songs.

The reactions began coming this summer. The team stayed alive with the addition of two new members and released "Rock U," which showed off the lively charm belonging only to Kara.

Then this winter they released their second mini album "Pretty Girl," and a more mature female group was born.

The members said "What's different about Kara from other girl groups is we have a more intimate feeling about us. During the member changes we were really worried about the fans' reactions, so it feels good that we're now closer."

Each of the members also has her own color. Park Gyuri, Jung Nicole, Han Seungyeon, Koo Hara, and Kang Jiyoung, each with their colors, pink, orange, yellow, purple, and green, show them even from their eye makeup. Now the degree to which each member's charm exudes has been established.

As much as the winter was cold, title song "Pretty Girl" has had an equally hot reaction.

After not even two weeks of its debut, they were already 5th on online music site Mnet.com's daily chart, which caused uncontainable happiness for them.

Their shaking hand dance, the "Kim Gookjin Dance" has quickly become an addictingly hot topic.

In addition to the song and choreography, their fans' enthusiastic cheering was also a hot topic.

During Kara's performance on Inkigayo, the fanboys near the front of the stage wore rubber gloves and danced a long, creating the "Rubber Gloves Performance."

DSP said happily, "The fans' cheering and the song's popularity aren't reactions you can just expect. During this period the members the girls suffered a lot but continued working hard, and now it seems like it's paying off."

E-Tribe, who wrote Lee Hyori's "U Go Girl" also participated in this album with new song "Yodel" begins with a popular refrain, Seungyeon's narration and piano harmony in "Honey," the warm-feeling song perfect for the winter "My Darling," and Kara's coming-of-age song "Ing..." are all on this album.

The members said, "2008 was a lot of work for our team. Pretty Girl's rising popularity is the first time since our debut that we've had a shot at first place, and we hope that we can achieve our greatest dream of making advances overseas in 2009." The members shouted "Fighting!"

wow i'm just happy the girls never broke up.. i don't think DSP even thought that was possible to throw gyulhamcole away..

DSP said happily, "The fans' cheering and the song's popularity aren't reactions you can just expect. During this period the members the girls suffered a lot but continued working hard, and now it seems like it's paying off."

yes it is.. the ultimate pay off is soo close and i really hope the girls get at least 1 award.. that's all it takes :)

thanks tinggg :P

btw. i love the articles that describe the girls talking lol. "The members' expressions brightened up" i can imagine them doing that and i think that is what makes them different from other groups.. they really mean what they say. you can see it in their reactions, the way they talk!! :D

wooooooot! so they're finally gonna be active overseas.

It'll either be in China or Japan. I personally think they'll do Japan ... and because I want them to, haha.

I'm glad they're getting the success they should've had when they first debuted. It's just too bad Sunghee's not there to enjoy it with them.

that's just amazing.

no wonder the eyemake up didn't match with the outfit. it showed their color. that's so amazing.

I guess I have to thank DSP here for not breaking kara up but giving them hope to continue on! I hope sung Hee come back someday :P too. I wish them all the luck they could have

For some reason It hink they would be expanding their popularity in Japan :D that's the highest thought that DSP would do I think. it's a big changes though.
