[News] KARA, First Asian girls group to break 100k in album sales in the first week in six years and nine months

Korea's five-membered girls group, KARA's first original Japanese album, "Girl's Talk," released on the 24th, sold 107k copies in the first week and debuted on the December 6th Oricon Weekly Album Chart on the No.2 spot. This marks the first time an Asian girls group (excluding Japan) has managed to sell 100k copies in the first week since Twelve Girls Band's album, "Kikou - Shining Energy," from six years and nine months ago.

"Girl's Talk" includes KARA's Japanese debut single, "Mister," and second single, "Jumping," as well as KARA's Korean hit, "Lupin," for a total of ten Japanese tracks. KARA has broken their own highest first week sales record of 51k, which was set by their Korean best album, "KARA BEST 2007-2010," released in September. "KARA BEST 2007-2010" has obtained the highest Oricon position of No.2 and has sold 109k since then.

I bet the girls died a little when they heard this !!

Hmm this just gives me more reason to think KARA will have their first concert in Japan rather than Korea XD...

[Update] KARA's perf being cut off at Blue Dragon Awards

Part II: Fans pissed at PDs zooming out to some random building during climax (aka buttpopping) of Kara's performance
Kara performed at the 31st Blue Dragon Awards, but their congratulatory performance was cut short. The director of the show explained it was because the award winners spoke for more than expected, and their broadcast time ran out. This resulted in Kara's closing stage being cut off in the middle and the 2nd half of the award ceremony broadcasting right away.

Kamilia (KARA's fanclub) were extremely disappointed at this, because the girls performed Jumping, a song they haven't seen many times in Korean. They called the producers unprofessional and demanded to know why they couldn't lengthen the time by a minute or two so the Kara girls could finish their performance.


Yea I figured this was the bigger issue for fans then the cameras zooming in on the actor's faces...

[News] KARA’s Nicole ranked as the #1 idol with the most celebrity friendships

KARA’s Nicole was chosen as the #1  idol with the most personal connections to other celebrities on the November 25th broadcast of SBS’s “One Night of TV Entertainment.
The episode ranked idol members according to their range of networks and placed Nicole as first, due to her friendships with SNSD’s Seohyun, Sunny, and Hyoyeon, 2AM’s Jo Kwon and Changmin, SS501′s Heo Young Saeng, Hwang Bo, Shin Hye Sung, and Jo Hye Ryeon. Her expansive network demonstrates that there were no gender or age restrictions in order to be her friend.
Super Junior’s Kim Hee Chul landed in second place for his friendships with Jung Jun Ha, Kim Jung Eun, Hwang Shin Hye, and even Lee Soo Man.
Kim Hee Chul commented, “I think they had a good impression of me. I’d like to say that all of this is attributed to one’s character.

Cr: AK

Actually I agree with some points being made about how having these many connections can take a person really far especially in the industry.. and this will be very very useful b/c KARA's in DSP XD.

[Trans] KARA member's messages on SSTP

Jiyoungs msg - How am I supposed to start.. Hmm.. Everyone is so busy, so all the members are tired and having a hard time. But because of times like these.. The 5 of us become more closer and do better.. Whatever happens, I hope we will give strength to each other.. And lets do well! (Ah, this is so embarrassing!)

Hara's msg
- Now we are promoting in both Korea and Japan, and I know that the members are having a hard time.. We just dont talk about it with each other, but everyone is tired and exhausted. And still, I see everyone giving their best in Korea, and so I think to myself that I also have to do my best, and also to take care of our members.. So I hope that we continue caring for each other more and more, so we would be able to show a better KARA.

Nicoles msg
- I think our KARA has come a long way.. I think this year has been the busiest and most fruitful. I know we still have a long way to go.. This year, the 5 members, by supporting each other, I feel like we have become a lot closer.. Everyone (Nicole cries ㅠㅠ).. is tired but still smiling with each other, so that was so good to see.. And I also see that everyone is making an effort to stay happy and energized for each other, and that was so touching. Ever since coming back to Korea, everyone has been smiling and getting along and staying strong.. Im just so thankful. We have a long way ahead of us, so I hope everyone would stay strong until the end.

Seungyeons msg
- Is there a need to say more.. Everyone in their places inside KARA, are doing so well. Without saying much, right now, this way, I am so thankful.. For the members being who they are now, I am really so thankful. With our busy and tiring promotions.. Well, there has been happy and grateful moments, but there were also disappointing and irritating moments as well. But the members have gotten through it, and stayed strong, so I am very thankful. If there was one thing that I could ask.. A little.. Till the end, everyone is accident free and healthy. Now, when I think of KARA, instead of tears, I am filled with happiness. And the time has come that a smile comes to my face first. I hope everyone looks after us till the end.

Gyuris msg
- Since we are very busy with promotions, everyone is tired, both mentally and physically. But never has anyone fainted.. Even though the members are tired, they are always smiling and showing their best during promotions.. So I am thankful.. I am so proud of our members.. I feel like.. With these members, we can do anything. We can do anything, and we have done everything well up to this point. I think that we are an admirable group because we have admirable members. I hope everyone takes care of their health, both mental and emotional. And I hope we remain that kind of healthy KARA. I love you.

[Fan] Fan account about KARA on Music Core

The part that mentions Nicole:

So it was finally time to go in, about 1:45. Hot diggety, I was sent to the 3rd row this time! The fan club members wanted to give me a taste of what its like to be a member before I joined. I was doing the chant for Kara In the 3rd row. Basically, the 3rd row is higher than the first row so it’s a little better actually than the first!  I loved the little adlibs by Nicole and Jiyoung who were practicing between takes. You won’t see things like this during the live show.

[News] Kimura Takuya parodies the KARA “butt” dance

Top Japanese star Kimura Takuya showed off his dance skills by shaking his hips to the famous KARA “Mister” song.

He recently appeared on TBS’s “Ochano Mizu Hakase” where he parodied the infamous ‘butt’ dance. The star is a huge male icon in Japan, so it’s no passing incident for him to know the “Mister” dance.

Fans of KARA in Korea are reportedly excited that their favorite girl group is achieving such fame in their neighbor country.

The episode will be broadcast on the 30th (KST).

We’ll update with a video once we lock one down, so stay tuned!
