KARA

Kara is a female group from South Korea that debuted in 2007 under the management of DSP Media. Ultimately, Gyuri, Seungyeon, Hara, and Youngji made up the group’s lineup. Although Nicole and Jiyoung quit the group formally in 2014, they will be returning for their 15th anniversary in 2022. Sunghee left the group in 2008.

The group began as a quartet and released their debut album, The First Blooming, along with the lead single “Break It,” in March 2007 to critical acclaim, showcased a powerful feminine persona and a sophisticated R&B style. Due to their status as the presumed successors to senior labelmate Fin. K.L., the group was showered with high expectations.

Despite their best efforts, however, the public did not warm to their premiere. Kim Sung-hee left the group the following year after family pressure got to him, and new members Goo Hara and Kang Jiyoung were recruited to take his place.

After their introduction, the group adjusted its sound and looked to achieve a “beautiful but natural” appeal, and they released their debut mini-album, Rock U, in July 2008. With “Honey,” they finally had a hit single (2009). The group’s second studio album, Revolution, was released in July 2009.

It yielded the smash tune “Mister,” whose choreography incorporated the “butt-dance,” which increased the group’s popularity throughout East Asia. Their subsequent singles—”Lupin” (2010), “Jumping” (2010), “Step” (2011), and “Pandora” (2012)—also did well, solidifying the group’s place in the Korean music business.

For 2009 and 2010, the group was ranked sixth by Gallup Korea, making them the country’s second-best girl group that year. In addition, in February 2012 and February 2013, they were placed No. 4 and No. 13 on Forbes Korea’s Power Celebrity list.
