Some of the netizens on the Japanese community site 2CH commented, “That’s VIP treatment”, “I think Kara’s the first to receive such treatment”, “I guess Kara are the top idols in Japan”, and “The treatment is completely different from a year ago. Kara are huge stars in Japan”. Another netizen expressed tje amazement at Kara’s popularity stating, “This is the first time that a program is dedicated to a foreigner for an entire hour since Michael Jackson passed away”.
Another Japanese channel NHK is also scheduled to air a 50-minute special on November 16th titled ‘MJ presents KARA special’ which will revolve around Kara’s hit songs.
