[News/blab] Are They the Same People? Netizens Are Surprised by Girl Group Members’ Changed Appearances

KARA’s Nicole has become a topic of netizen conversation for similar reasons. While preparing for her solo debut in the US, she released a selca that has fans buzzing with speculation as to her newly mature features.

Just got a kick out of this. I did see some comments about how she looks "different" in this picture. Well it's because her photo is flipped .. and she seems to have lost significant weight. (Remember what happens when Nicole loses weight?... :P) Her hair in the new photo is great too haha. Also, I guess they still think Nicole's in the US haha.

[Fan] 14.01.25. Nicole Arrival @ LAX Fancam by crossedlanding

Pretty sure I have not posted this up yet..
The fan who uploaded the video wrote this :)

Nicole is seriously the sweetest! ♥ ♥ ♥ She's always so bubbly and cute keke 

A few Kamilia showed up to welcome her back to LA~ She genuinely appreciated the support, and thanked all of us multiple times for coming to see her. Nicole's mom, Shirley, was really nice, too! She was the one who caught Nicole's attention and told her I wanted something signed :) I really should have tried to strike up some short convo, but I couldn't help but intently watch her write out her signature, minus the "KARA" ;_____; d'awwww

Nicole noticed I was chewing some berry-flavored gum as I thanked her. It's not in this fancam, but as she walking back towards the center of the group, she excitedly told me, "OMG!!! Your bubblegum smells really good!!!" HAHAHA This girl XD Nicole signed autographs and took pictures with everyone who wanted them~

The news of her arrival kind of came out of nowhere, so I scrambled to gather a few things together to give her before I left my house ^^;; //basically, I just gave her some 85°C bread and chocolate LOL plus a letter// You can see her holding the bag in her hand~

I hope she is able to rest and enjoy her time back in LA! It must have been really hard for her in 2013... I wish everything works out for Nicole this year, and in the future! May she remain as bright, positive, and successful as ever :D

[Nicole-as] 14.07.06. Nicole-as Update: Hello everyone!

Hello everyone!
It's been a while! How are you?
I am fine

Recently... Well, it's the same ww
But I've big news! Drum roll please ww

Duke's little brother! I got him too!ww Everyday at home, it feels like the whole time, Duke's looking at me... and I thought he looked sad... I thought about it for a month... If I get a friend for him, responsibility comes with it.. But compared to a different breed, one that's the same is better, they say. Therefore, if it's his brother, then it's the best! So I called the breeder. I asked whether Duke's brother is still there. I thought that I will leave it to fate.
But he's still there! So I got him then and there... I think Duke also knew they're brothers. Duke is a very jealous dog. Especially if I play with or touch another dog other than him. But now, he's not jealous at all. Ah, that's right. The new puppy's name is Jasper. His eyes are really unique. I want to give them a special name. If you look properly, the left eye is blue, but the right is brown and blue. Isn't it amazing? He has a different appeal from Duke.ww I think Jasper will become more cute in 2 or 3 weeks. After Jasper's arrival, Duke has become more mature. Although he's only 3 months old w Although it's getting better, we have to keep Jasper's crying in check. Jasper is still looking for his mom.. he's a bit of a... mama's boy... This habit, we're going to do our best to fix it. But since he's a mama's boy... he remembers orders quickly. He already knows sit, down, and wait.. Duke is a bit better at it. They're alike, aren't they? ww

Soon, I plan to teach him how to walk properly. Although he doesn't run.. he walks to the left, to the back, to the right - always changing... it's a bit frustrating

I am worried that the two will fight
But we'll do our best to have them get along with each other.

During the weekend, friends from Japan arrived.
It's been a while since we've seen each other, so we ate together and walked together without giving the dogs a bath w
We went to eat at Mama Miya again.ww
Ah, that's right.
I wanted to go and eat, but my friend told me not to forget to take photos.
It's a pork dish called Bolgeta. I uploaded this last time too!
Also, we had tiramisu
It's so good, my friend was speechless

Duke and Jasper also went! Aren't they cute? They're slowly getting bigger! Duke is probably already 10kg. Jasper is smaller than Duke.

When we got home after, I gave them a bath.
Duke and Jasper... I'm not sure whether they like bathing, but they don't seem to hate it.
Duke's expressions are funny. While Jasper is taking a bath, my friend was drying Duke, so we don't have a photo of Jasper. It was difficult, but we both had fun.

Notice the bruise on her leg? XD

[blab] Why is Nicole Taking Sooo Long to Debut?

I know, it's frustrating not getting detailed or constant updates about Nicole's pending solo debut.

I'd like to think Nicole's taking her time because she wants to do a good job. There's a lot of pressure for her to do well, from the fans and especially from herself. Nicole doesn't have an awaiting group to go back to if her solo doesn't take off immediately. So if she's taking time to work on her skills and to properly choose a company, it's a positive thing.

Keep in mind that she only left KARA in late January and came back from the US three months ago. It has not been a very long time. She has mentioned working on her vocals in one of her updates at her fansite and is keeping herself in shape while exercising and practicing.

Until then, even if it's just many pictures of her dogs, food, or selcas; be happy that she's updating us at all :)

[Nicole-ing] 14.07.05. Hello everyone ^^ (Nicole-ing Update)

Hello everyone ? Are you doing well ? haha

I heard that you gathered together yesterday to watch my Secret Love episode.. 
So I came here to say my thanks ^^

How was it ? 

There are maaaaaaaa~~~~~~~ny things ... that are still lacking.. 

especially . the worst . ..

is my pronunciation still lacking so much.. hh...

Lately I'm trying to talk slower, but instead since I think while talking .. somehow my pronunciation becomes more awkward ? I feel like that ...

Even then if I can make it a habit .. won't it be better.. trying hard too with that in mind.. ^^

Recently rain falls often, be careful and don't forget to bring umbrella with you !

I will come again soon (:
