KARA’s limited edition poster has been auctioned on a Japanese auction site for 60,000 YEN (824,688 WON / $734 USD).

The poster was first released to 50 special event winners that bought KARA’s first official Japanese album, “Girl’s Talk,” on November 24th. The poster was especially coveted since it contained individual autographs from each member.

Additionally, the limited edition of their debut single, “Mister,” which features a DVD as well as an album, is also being auctioned for 39,800 YEN ($486.90 USD).

The group has been enjoying immense popularity in Japan lately, as they’ve recently ranked in 6th place for “The Rookies That Shined in 2010.” Their album, “Girl’s Talk”, also passed 200,000 in sales within a month of its release.

Thanks meme :D Well i had actually imagined they would have gotten more, even though 734USD is already a phenomenal sum for a poster.

Anyway, I believe Kara's Girls talk has already reached the 250k sales mark! Let me go and try to find the source somwhere to confirm it. Congrats to the girls for their hard work!

Yes hardcore indeed. I think hardcore sounds a bit underwhelming for this situation. It is alright for this fan to spend on this like you said if it is within their means. Probably this fan have a good number of cash lying around. How to understand this? It is just their passion and motivation. Different person like different things. People value certain objects more than they value other things. You may find that they are willing to spend more for the things they love but less on other things. People that spend on bags may spend less on clothes.

It is cases like this that makes its it a bit worth while to buy 2 Kara objects. One to sell and one for your own use.

@MizuiroKaze13

The "mister version type A" or dvd version is said to be a limited edition. How fast it sold out prove this. If they really sell it for that high, I think I would buy 2 pieces next time. Anyone here wants to sell theirs?

I expected number 1 too seeing how Kara could break a 30 year old Japanese record for the most selling cd of a foreign artise.

That like a amazing just for a poster, and it sell for around 734 dollars. That truly amazing, i don't have that kind of cash to buy that. I bet most guy would love that poster. i can't believe that everything of KARA is selling like hot cake. Kept it up KARA, even if KARA is done promote in japan, news about KARA would never die it seem like.

Either the fan is filthy rich or had to beg the parents for a long time to get the money LOL. Or got great grades and that was the gift. :tongue:

It'll probably appreciate in value, like a good painting. Who knows.

imo, fan shouldn't be buying more than his/her needs.

for example, he/she brought 5 but auctioned the extra copy(ies) at a much higher price to another kamilia(s).

this is quite disheartening, especially to those "weaker" kamilias.

one buys to support the girls, not to make money out of another rich or desperate kamilia.
