Kara has completed all their comeback stages starting with M! Countdown last Thursday and ending it with Inkigayo yesterday afternoon. So how was their comeback like? Well, they will need to do more than what they have done considering what an earlier news said earlier about their comeback and asking the two leading girl groups Wonder Girls and SNSD to take note of them.
Kara’s comeback track “Rock U” is a song that presents a cute and bubbly image of teenagers which no doubt was bought upon by the addition of two new young members and breaking away from their old image which didn’t quite take off for them. They have also been frequently saddled with the term of “Fink.K.L 2” and this has sort of become a burden on them.
Their first two performances on M! Countdown and Music Bank was quite bad frankly. Not that I am biased, but you can see it for yourself that they were probably nervous or simply not ready yet to make their comeback. They were slightly better on Music Core and Inkigayo. And it didn’t help that their fans didn’t expect them to go for the bubblegum pop concept and even then their nervous performances really didn’t help them. What has happened to the once promising group with boundless potential? Some fans defended them by saying they did quite well considering what had happened and they needed more time.
Some blame it on DSP Entertainment for rushing things and making them comeback without proper training. Some said the departure of Kim Sung Hee has hurt the group really badly because she was the most important member. Regardless, their comeback has been less than ideal and they seriously need to find a better song to create their own identity.
Not the best time to make your comeback either with the highly popular Lee Hyori, Seo In Young currently promoting their songs.
