KARA 


KARA just released their new Korean mini-album Pandora. This year’s comeback concept is a sexy one with a body wave filled music video that takes the legginess to SNSD levels :P .

This song has the potential to grow on me. When I’m in a good mood, I like it.

I don’t know about Ji-young’s blue hair though. It looks kinda cool on the white stage, but on the red/purple stage the colour kind of clashes and it doesn’t look as good.

The move where they slide their jackets off their shoulders is pretty hot, but the “butt dip” or whatever you’d call it feels kind of cheap. I think it’s hotter when it’s more understated.

 

This is the second song from KARA’s upcoming Japanese double A-side single. It stands in stark* contrast to Speed Up. It shows off KARA’s cute side. I think the composer is Korean, but the song sounds very J-Poplike with the typical guitars, just like in Go Go Summer.

KARA is doing really well over in Japan. Later this month they’re releasing their sixth Japanese single. It’s a double A-side single consisting of the songs Speed Up and Girl’s Power.

They can really pull off both the hot/sultry look (as shown in this video) as well as the über-cutesy look (coming up next). Seung-yeon looks so fierce! It feels like Ji-young is getting more and more focus in KARA’s videos. She’s very popular in Japan. I’m not complaining, though. She’s my favourite member, along with Seung-yeon. Loving Ji-young’s hair btw. And Seung-yeon’s red hair too. They all look great, as a matter of fact.

T-ara’s So-yeon posted another cute picture on Twitter today. Kyaaa~♥! So friggin adorable! Also check out the picture of KARA’s Ji-young and her nice figure. She has really shone during the Step promotions, getting more and more spotlight. Perhaps because of how popular she is in Japan. KARA is concluding their Korean promotions this week and will return to Japan for a new release there. T-ara are releasing a new Korean album soon (in about a month, I think).

This is the content of my latest K-Pop order. Well, actually I got the SNSD DVDs two weeks ago, but I got the rest today.

After resolving the dispute with their record company and promoting solely in Japan for a while, KARA has now returned to Korea with a new album!

The first song they’re promoting is Step, which is the title track of the album. I was a bit, not disappointed, but unimpressed after seeing the teaser for this song. I watched it in very poor quality on a cellphone, so I didn’t really get a good look at the girls, but I could hear the snippet of the song that was featured. I think what bothered me was the keyboard-thingy that loops over and over. Then the full audio was released and I thought it was a little better. Good, but not great. Good enough to listen to a few times and it started to grow on me little by little. … Continue reading

 

GO GO サマー! is KARA’s Japanese summer single. It sounds very Japanese, complete with J-Pop guitars and everything.

I like the music video. Very uplifting! :)

edit: I forgot to mention that KARA are making their Korean comeback in September.

 

Seung-yeon looks especially fierce in this cover of 2PM’s song Again & Again.

Recommended watching for all KARA fans.

 

I found this dance version video of Mister by KARA when I was making the KARA collection torrent. At some point I had planned to make a dance version special, but I never got around to it and forgot that I had already made this video :roll: .

Although it’s already included in the torrent, I thought I’d post this piece of eye candy for direct download too.

This is the Japanese version of the song, same as the original music video. Better get used to it as we’ll probably never see KARA perform this song on Korean TV again due to today’s stricter wardrobe regulations :P .

 

Now that I’ve re-ripped Rock U I can finally post a KARA video collection torrent. It consists of all KARA videos posted on this site so far (+ one bonus video).
