[2010.08.16] Kara to Come Out with a Best-Ofs Album

71 posts in this topic

Kara recently debuted in Japan with ‘Mister,’ which quickly became a huge success. In fact, not only did the girls sell 29,000 copies within the week of the release, but they became the first Asian girl group to debut on the top 10 weekly single ranking chart!

No artist has been able to debut in the Top 10 for more than 30 years, and yet Kara has been able to do so – at number 5, no less! The last time a phenomenon like this happened was with British girl group the Nolans, when they released ‘Dancing Sister’ back in 1980. You have to admit – something like this just can’t be ignored!

To celebrate their success, Kara will be releasing a “Best-Ofs” album, which will be coming out shortly. Catchy songs such as ‘Lupin,’ ‘Wanna,’ ‘Mister,’ will almost definitely be on there – any other guesses as to what may be included with this release?

Popular Korean girl group KARA who recently debuted in Japan with the release of MISTER has announced the release of their best album titled “KARA BEST 2007-2010″ on September 29th.

This album was created based on the votes from KARA fans on which songs they like the best from their previous releases in Korea. Voting went on from August 3rd through August 11th and results of the vote was:

1st place “Mister”

2nd place “LUPIN”

3rd place “Honey”

4th place “PRETTY GIRL”

5th place “Wanna”

The album will contain a total of 12 songs with two different editions, a regular edition and Limited edition. The Limited edition will include a DVD chronicling the hand-shake event that took place on August 14th and will also include various music videos.

Furthermore, KARA will be releasing a new single sometime in Fall of this year. More information about this new single will be released later.

Kara's Agency DSP Media "We were surprised" which they couldn't believe they'd do so well.In addition DSP reps also said, "We thought it would be great if we can slowly climb up step by step to be in Oricon Chart top 10, But mister ranked 5 in Oricon Chart and even maintained at that position for quite some time. It's unexpected results which we and Universal are all very surprised."

Wow ... It's been 3 years since KARA debuted in the K-Pop industry and they have gone through many achievements over the years. They still have a long way to go ... and expecting more great news from them somewhere in the near future.

Oh good, I was waiting for the 29k sales article. T__T so proud.

And doesn't that just show how much bigger the Japanese market is? Within a week, they managed to sell more than their Lupin minialbum did, which was in Korea a top 10 first half 2010 selling album. So glad they debuted in Japan.
