EPIC ALBUM!!!
Can't pick a fave song, they are all too good :heart:
Its been on repeat for the last 3 hours XD
There is even tiny teasing parts of Nicole's adorable rapping :wub:
Now all we need is Cole's long hair/caps back & a little someone called SungHee & then we have old KARA back :D

If this was the plan along, awesome marketing! Go the cute path to gain more popularity & exposure, then return to the good music that made the important like us, love them in the first place, kekeke XD

I'd heard of KARA previously, but when someone on Youtube put up their video I just had to watch it. Awesome song, the chorus is addictive as hell. I look forward to finding out more about this group as well as listening to them much more.

You too TOZ?

Yea, KARA's pretty awesome. They're all beautiful. I dunno how to explain it...they all have that "look" that caught my eye. Latest album is full of win. All of their tracks sound great, including my current favorite "Mister". Wanna MV is HOT. I even got a new sig/ava set of them...and that's usually reserved for Eri so there.

^ You got it bad!!! Welcome to the club :D

I know I've been fangirling so much about them lately but I can't help, its rekindle almost everything about KARA that I first fell in love with :heart:
And OMG OMG OMG, I've been wanting to say this all week but haven't had a chance to post... KYAAAA~ I was in Sydney shopping at the permanent market place on Sunday (and yes the shop owners are like 75% Asian or something) and I suddenly stop and clung to my friends arm saying "OMG, I hear KARA & it's my favourite song!!!". The shop/stall next to the one we were at (looking at Hello Kitty) was playing 'Secret World'. I was kyaaa-ing out loud and trying to suppress all my squealing, stood outside the shop for most of the song... There are certain shops that I expect to hear Korean music & I go to them to just to hear who they are playing (it was Big Bang this time, Wonder Girls last time) but I never expected to 1)Hear any where I was 2)Hear KARA 3)Hear an oldschool awesome Kara song!... Took forever for my heartbeat to go back to normal pace... Such an awesome moment *sigh*

Kinda lame, but hey, I never denied being a crazy fangirl :P

Anyway, just wanna say Mister is officially my fave song on the album now! Everytime I hear it I can't help but visualize Nicole's arse & abs shaking about while she does that sexy smirk of hers... what more could one want from a song :wub: :drool:

+ I'm getting kinda over protective as a fan, can't handle all the bad comments about Wanna... Having someone say that T-ara's debut is better than Kara's comeback hurts!!! :oops:

First post edited with new album, Sevvie let me know if you want me to reupload it seeing I used your link :heart:
And if anyone wants to upload the MV so I can add it to the first post too that would be greatly appreciated <3
I like feeling like I'm doing something useful for once, kekeke (not that i actually do anything but click edit lol)

Hmm... Great pics they do, but Seungyeon isn't always photogenic, despite how much I like her.  Her disappearing eyes < Tiffany's disappearing eyes.
Cute:

Less cute, but I still <3 her:

Maybe its the nostrils.  Seungyeon!! <333

Speaking of eyes, it still amazes me after more than 2 years, how pretty eyes (and eyebrows :oops:) Nicole have. Not to talk about Gyuri who's always had crazy seductive eyes. Something in her look that just ensnares me. :inlove:

Kara - Lovely / Wanna(Aug 8, 2009)
A "Lovely" song to a sexy song

Kara - Mister / Wanna(Aug 2, 2009)
The "Mister" perf...OH MY GAWD (!!)


Well I never had a group garner so much attention to me since Morning Musume. SNSD didn't do it and neither has Wonder Girls or 2NE1 (still love them though). First impressions of Brown Eyed Girls was meh and only watched 4Minute's MV Hot Issue once (catchy song though).

I would like to admit that I did mis-read/calculate their birthdays and didn't know that Nicole is still 17 (ARG!) and mixed up Hara's and JiYoung's birthdays. Because of that  I'm changing my faves for the time being. Back when I thought Hara was 15 I knew she would be beautiful when she gets older (love the petite frame) but now that she's 18 and the fact that she's pretty fierce from that Great Battle gameshow she jumps to #1. Nicole then moves to #2 tied with Gyuri. To me, Nicole reminds me of Eri so much and I love her seal clap. Gyuri is just damn sexy and I'm sure can rock any hat she pleases.

^ Nooo! You dropped Cole down to 2?  :( Oh well, all the more for me :D
I can't really rank them anymore, all I know is Nicole is a clear number 1 :heart: & Seungyeon is probably up to 2nd now coz she looks uber hot in the Mister performances with the way her hair is + I like bitchy girls :P

some asian ent websites like asian fanatics and the korean allkpop.com said that KARA is gaining popularity in Japan, "KARA MANIA,"  I haven't heard anything about this and didn't know that If it's true or not, but Is KARA really that popular in Japan? 
Must be, right?  since they're making plans to enter the japanese market. 
but because I heard this on a korean site, they tends to exaggerate and blows things out of proportion.

I do like them, more than the other korean group, actually. SNSD and Wonder Girls didn't do for me, and I have no clue about the other ones recently, but KARA draws me in...

I think they are relatively popular, although I have no idea to what magnitude that is. They are attempting some inroads there. I know there was a Yahoo Japan survey not too long ago where Goo Hara was voted #1 best looking Korean Idol or something. JiYoung was on the list too.


Quote
Recently, a survey conducted from Japan’s biggest portal site, Yahoo Japan, on ‘Prettiest Belle of the Korean Girl-Groups’, resulted KARA’s Goo Ha Ra as the 1st, while So Nyeo Shi Dae’s Tae Yeon and YoonA were voted 2nd and 3rd respectively.


KARA’s Goo Ha Ra was voted the 1st as she has a small body and clear facial features on a small faces, which are the ideal face and body shape for Japanese.

Tae Yeon was voted as the 2nd because of her friendly, yet lovely image, while the 3rd, YoonA, captured the Japanese fans with her innocence and cute charms.

Furthermore, Jessica of So Nyeo Shi Dae was voted 4th, KARA’s Kang Ji Young as 5th, So Nyeo Shi Dae’s Soo Young as 6th and After School’s Yoo So Young as 7th on the chart.

On a side note, KARA will be releasing their new album on the 30th and making a comeback stage at KBS 2TV’s ‘Music Bank’ on the 31st.

Oh yea, I don't think I ever mentioned but Mister is hot! I really like the new stuff. Not quite break it but I don't know if any k-pop songs the last couple years match that greatness. :grin:
