  1. I hope Kara gets invited to Kohaku. Call me selfish but i don't want any other kpop girl group invited. Kara is the most active and hard working in Japan they deserve it more than any other kpop girl groups out there. They deserve a spotlight alone in these type of events!

  2. they are popular despite their powerless company, laid-back fandom, n very simple concept.

    they win already, don't worry.
    it's ok for the others to be invited too, but KARA will still be able to steal the attention.

    no one can stop KARA's era in Japan.
    (or so i hope :D)
