KARA’s popularity in Japan soars despite recent controversy

rPgCg.jpg

Ever since KARA returned to Japan as all five this week, the Japanese media has been hot on their trail.

The girls were bombarded by media attention immediately upon their arrival and followed them throughout their drama schedule for “URAKARA,” as well as their third single jacket album photoshoot.

Fuji TV even went as far as to follow the girls to their “URAKARA” film set, which is exceptional in itself since the drama is broadcast by their rival network, TV Tokyo. The network risked giving media exposure to the other network in order to report on their day-to-day activities as well as minor details like their plane seating list.

One news program nicknamed the arrival of KARA and the attention they’ve garnered as the “KARA Phenomenon,” which is a term that hasn’t been used since the legendary Hallyu star, Bae Yong Joon.

On the “URAKARA” episode broadcast on February 4th, the girls gave a short message for their fans stating, “We’ll be promoting in Japan into the future, so please look forward to us.”

Meanwhile, it was found that Seungyeon and Jiyoung’s parents accompanied the girls on their trip, and although they were revealed to be monitoring the girls’ activities, DSP Media added that they were not going on set with the girls.

KARA looks happy on set of “URAKARA”

Following news of their return back to Japan as five members on February 3rd, Tokyo TV’s live broadcast of ‘7 Star Bratch’ revealed behind-the-scenes footage of the KARA members happily filming for their show, “URAKARA.”

The program stated, “The KARA members arrived happily together as five at the Tokyo Haneda Airport yesterday (February 3rd),” and showed footage of the members walking out of the airport while being surrounded by the warm support of their fans. The whole studio panel applauded upon watching the footage and warmly welcomed the members with, “Welcome back.”

The show’s reporter added, “They have started the filming of “URAKARA” today. The members looked tired and sleepy, but they still continued on with the same bright and friendly image.”

I think it's only right that Kara's popularity rises along with the controversy.

This is when their support is truly needed and I'm sooo glad that the J-Kamilias know that.

The J-Kamilias must have been so worried about them! From influential figures to the common folk, Japan has really fallen for Kara! I haven't heard any criticism or negative speculation from Japan, only displays of hope and support. :thumbup: They're really loyal and admirable fans. :D

The controversy helps to rise their popularity because Japan realized that they want the KARA to stay together and many people must have realized they were Kamilia in their heart. KARA has worked so hard to become who they are today and It is normal that people finally realized how amazing they are.
