[2010.11.09] KARA Challenges Actress Roles for the First Time

111 posts in this topic

Popular 5-member Korean girl group KARA will star in the TV Tokyo drama “URAKARA”. The drama will begin airing on January 14th.

The drama will be filmed in both Japan and Korea. The girls, who are inexperienced in love, will go to a “love shop” and accomplish love missions. The 5 members will play themselves.

KARA debuted in Korea in March 2007. This August they had their Japanese debut with “Mister” which featured their “butt dance”, which was a big hit. The 5 girls are at the peak of their popularity and they wanted to show more charm than just singing and dancing, so they all expressed a desire to act as well. They will have the joy of performing in their first drama which will be done in both Japan and Korea.

During the drama, they will try various ways to put the target man in a trance and fall for them. They are looking forward to beginning production at the end of this month, but since it’s their first time they’re also nervous.

The language will be both Japanese and Korean; when Korean is spoken there will be subtitles on the bottom of the screen. All of the members can speak conversational Japanese, but the girls are currently studying how to put certain feelings into words through acting.

Korean girl group KARA stars in TV Tokyo drama

Written by aznwave on 09 November 2010

The promotional push for popular Korean girl group KARA continues with the news that they will be the stars of their own television drama, scheduled to begin airing on TV Tokyo and its affiliates on January 14 (Fridays 12:12am). Titled “URAKARA,” the show will feature the members of KARA as themselves, taking on a series of missions related to love.

The premise of the show has KARA working for an underworld service as for-hires, but instead of killing their targets, their missions require them to make those men fall in love with them. Each week, a mysterious boss will give them their new target – from powerful politicians to kabuki actors to ordinary salarymen – and they will use any technique they can to accomplish their goal. But due to their inexperience with love, various problems come up during their missions.

Producer Kaori Hashimoto said, “There’s no doubt that you’ll be able to see another face of KARA that has never been seen before.” The show will freely blend reality and fiction, with the members using their own names to give it a greater feeling of authenticity.

KARA made their Japanese debut in August with the song “Mister,” which received a lot of attention for its famous “butt dance.” Their second single “Jumping” is being released this week, and their first original Japanese album “Girl’s Talk” will quickly follow on November 24.

WOW!!! There's something new. The girls as actresses, that should be very interesting.

"they will try various ways to put the target man in a trance and fall for them" :tongue:

Of course they can accomplish that just by being themselves. They'll be exibiting another aspect of their talents, by acting. Great.

Even though the plot sounds a bit creepy (cough), it's great that the girls will get their first acting experiences as leading roles. This is yet another milestone for KARA. :gemadmire:

Wow. This is very exciting. Im sure they are nervous but they will do great. Not sure how much effort they will have to put in to get a man in a trance because all they would have to do is just glance at me.

Congrats ladies. Cant wait to see it.
