Thanks everyone for the help with photos, d/ls, vids everything
Let me know if there's anything you want me to add/change in the first post (I changed Hara's name for Naomi
). I just want it to be quick and easy for future fans to catch up on stuff, seeing with their ever increasing popularity atm I'm hoping a heap more fall in love with them
As for how my KARA fandom started, it's all coz of the Wonder Girls
I figured I better go check out the group that YooBin's best friend was the leader of & force myself to like them out of respect for YooBin (my mind works in strange ways) but as soon as I heard Break It I didn't have to force anything. I'm really surprised you couldn't get into the older stuff Naomi, I honestly think that 'The First Blooming' is one of the best overall albums I've ever heard, and not just from the Asian music scene. But like you said, its not your type of music, whereas its the exact style I've always loved, strong women just owning their cool music. 'Secret World' is by far my fave KARA song, to me it feels like some musical masterpiece with the layers in the song, despite the crappy English grammar
As for members, SungHee will always be my number one and nothing will change that. If she was still in the group she'd probably be equal with YooBin for my fave Korean Idol and that's saying a lot. It took me a while to get use to KARA II without her especially coz of the change of style. Like Sev said, there will never be a singer to replace her and I'm kinda glad they didn't try to find someone to when they added HaRa & JiYoung. I know she said she's still working towards a music career, I just hope it works coz if her voice was able to mature within the group as she grew I have little doubt that in 10 years she would be one of the best vocalists Korea has ever had.
@Sev: Thanks for the pics
SungHee in a bikini =
She is always so damn gorgeous and those dimples are such killers
Nicole is now my fave coz she is just so freakin' lovable
She always makes me smile (same with SungHee) so I can't help but adore her. I have so much respect for GyuRi, she is an amazing person and seems to have such a great aura & I love the idea of bitchy SeungYeon, so that hasn't turned me off her at all
I'm really not a fan of HaRa, she just annoys me and I can't explain why so I tend to not focus on her much, sorry to the HaRa fans
It's not like I hate her or anything, maybe I just still need time to get use to her
Finally, JiYoung is such a cutie that I'd feel mean and guilty if I didn't like her, she's really grown on me *pinches JiYoung's cheeks*
Oh & does anyone have the 'If U Wanna' MV?
