After the exit of Kim Sung Hee in February this year, Kara is set to make their comeback with two new members plus an entirely new image this July.
According to DSP Entertainment, “Kara will begin their promotional activities officially in mid July and the two new members have basically been confirmed.”
Kara was labelled as “Fin.K.L No.2” by the media when they first debuted but following Kim Sung Hee’s departure earlier this year, DSP Entertainment decided to call for open auditions to recruit new members to replace her.
The auditions which started on 8th April saw Koreans living in America, Japan, China, etc and foreigners taking part. After confirming the two new members, DSP Entertainment has subsequently moved on to selecting the songs for their new album and will soon embark on their official promotional activities.
According to DSP Entertainment, “The change from a 4 to five members group will see a change in their image. The two new members together with existing members, Park Gyu Ri, Han Seung Yeon and Jung Nicole will ditch their cute image of the past with something new. They will give their fans a new and refreshing feel and becoming a new shining light in the industry.”
Kara will meet their fans after completing their album recording and MV filming.
