5 member girl goup Kara will be the opening stage act for the best, special Japanese show 'NHK Kouhaku'.
On the 1st, many Japnese media said that on December 31st '62nd NHK Kouhaku' which starts at 7:15 PM will feature Kara for the first time. They mentioned their opening stage as well.
SanK Sports said, "Kara, whom member Kang Jiyoung is still under-aged, will be performing with the youngest star to be on 'Kouhaku, baby star Ashida Mana, from 7:15 PM to 8 PM. They will both be guests together for 45 minutes and will set the fun mood through stage performances" and revealed that out of 55 teams, they will perform the opening stage.
In Japan, if a celebrity is still a minor, they are prohibited to make appearances on TV after 9PM.
SanK Sports said, "Kara's devoted fan Ashida Mana begged during the Guest List Press Conference on November 30th, 'I would like to dance with KARA', and Kara's leader Gyuri who was there replied, 'We want to perform with Ashida Mana too'".
Kara and Girls Generation did very well in Japan this year and they both made the guest list for 'Kouhaku' for the first time. They were put in to the red team. TVXQ, who have been on 'Kouhaku' for the 3rd time, including this year, was put in to the white team.Source: NateTranslated by: sysbittersweet @ KH
