    INTRO :-
    Kara (Hangul: 카라, Japanese: カラ, often stylized as KARA) is a South Korean pop girl group formed by DSP Media in 2007. The group's name comes from the Greek word "chara" (χαρά, lit. "joy"), which they interpreted to mean "sweet melody".
    Kara originally started as a four member group, composed of Park Gyuri, Han Seungyeon, Nicole Jung, and Kim Sunghee and made their debut with "Break It" (2007) while displaying a strong female image and a mature R&B sound. They released their first studio album titled The First Blooming in 29th March 2007.

    In 2008, Kim Sunghee departed the group due to parental pressure, and members Goo Hara and Kang Jiyoung were brought in. They released their first mini-album entitled Rock U in July 2008. They achieved their first number one song with "Honey" (2009). In July 2009, the group released their second studio album entitled Revolution. The album spawned the hit single "Mister", whose choreography featured the "butt-dance", which helped increase the group's popularity within East Asia. Their follow-up singles including "Lupin" (2010), "Jumping" (2010), "Step" (2011), and "Pandora" (2012) were also successful and helped further establish the group within the Korean music industry.

    After finding national success the group eventually began to expand their music to Japan by signing to Universal Music Japan's subsidiary label, Universal Sigma in 2010. The group's debut was a success as they were dubbed as "Japan's #1 Rookie Artist of 2010" by Oricon and also receiving the "New Artist Of The Year Award (International)" from the Japan Gold Disc Awards. In April 2011, the group achieved their first number one single in Japan with "Jet Coaster Love", making them the first foreign female group since the creation of the Oricon to rank number one in the first week of release and also the first foreign female group in thirty years to do so. Overall, the group managed to sell over one million physical singles within two years, making them one of the fastest-selling South Korean acts in Japan.

    http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ScqfTzXwiR0/UGRfuwk06nI/AAAAAAAAne8/zUnD18CTzmY/s640/kara.jpg

    KARA’s beauty ranking by professionals was revealed.

    MBC Music’s ‘All the K-pop’ performed a survey with 100 plastic surgery surgeons and other personnels from Chungdamdong, asking to rank the KARA members in terms of looks.

    Park Gyuri, who is well known as a “goddess”, ranked first on the survey. Most of the plastic surgeons said, “Gyuri has golden proportions. She has the most ideal eyes, nose, and lips. Many patients come to us asking for a face like Gyuri.”

    Seungyeon ranked second with her cute and innocent appearance. She said, “I actually don’t like my eyes. I often hear that I look scary and mean when I open my eyes wide. But I’m happy that I ranked second.”

    Jiyoung placed 3rd, Goo Hara placed 4th and Nicole placed 5th. Many fans were surprised at Goo Hara ranking as fourth. Professionals explained, “Goo Hara has good proportions and is pretty. But maybe that is why she seems a little less natural.”

    Kamilias, the main purpose for me to create KARA forum thread is sharing news. I had see, this site almost never post any news related to KARA, due to minority crews. The other reason is, majority of Kamilias, posting news at K-Pop fansite, instead at international non-official fansite, Karaholic. Next, the sources for KARA's news, are not much.

    The photos were taken from a variety show, which aired in 2009. Unlike her current mature image, she looks like an innocent girl with bangs and puffed cheeks.

    Upon seeing the photos, netizens commented, “She was so cute”, “Wow, she was a baby” and “Looking quite different from how she looks now.”

    DSP Media rides KARA success as brand name rises

    This article focuses on DSP Media and KARA especially since KARA is DSP's cash cow now. And let's admit Kamilia, we are supportive of KARA's juniors just as our girls are. I've seen many Kamilia who are also Rainbow fans and who became A-light and who are watching Puretty's development.

    http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ujn96lUtiwQ/UHD3J1l2EHI/AAAAAAAAaQ0/UBY9k63yGMY/s1600/kara-winter.png

    > INSIDE K-POP: 4. DSP Media <

    Back with its new EP “Pandora,” five-member girl group KARA is here, there and everywhere. The girls have been especially successful in Japan: Last year alone, the group won Japan’s Golden Disc Award, K-pop Lovers! Award and Japan Record Award.

    Every EP released since KARA’s Japan debut has been a hit. A line of dolls based on the girl group has been launched and the K-pop stars are the faces of various perfumes and food companies.

    KARA’s success can be attributed to the hard work of its members, as well as the talent behind the scenes. But the ride with DSP Media, its agency, hasn’t always been smooth.

    In this fourth installment of the Korea JoongAng Daily’s Inside K-pop series, we explore how the successful group came to be and the role its agency DSP Media played in the unexpected rise.

    As a smaller agency compared to its competitors YG, SM and JYP, DSP Media doesn’t hold annual concerts featuring a star-studded lineup of K-pop acts. Founded by Lee Ho-yeon, the agency is not a household name, but most would recognize the groups that it has churned out from the early 1990s. Before KARA, Rainbow and A-Jax, there were Sechs Kies, Fin.K.L and SS501.

    But most struggled to stay in the spotlight. KARA hopes to buck the trend.

    “Apart from Shinhwa, only a handful of idol groups have made it past the four-year mark of relevance like Super Junior, Girls’ Generation, the Wonder Girls and of course KARA,” says Yun Heung-kwan, director of DSP Media.

    Unlike its three better-known contemporaries, DSP has not laid its eyes on a global audience - the agency focuses on the quality of its talents and the formation of idol groups rather than on marketing gimmicks. This has been a pillar of its K-pop model, for better or worse.

    The making of KARA
    In 2005, when the agency decided to launch a girl group, it wasn’t as easy as you’d imagine.

    “With the first round of auditions, we were really unimpressed,” Yun says.

    This led DSP to think outside the box, with the agency tapping into its vast Hallyu network.

    Han Seung-yeon was eventually recruited through a dance school which trains Lee Hyori’s backup dancers. Park Gyu-ri, a child actor, was introduced to DSP through another agency. Nicole Jung was introduced to the agency by a mutual friend when the agency heads were visiting the United States.

    “A native English speaker is needed in this day and age, so we recruited Nicole for that reason.”

    In its initial stages, there was another member named Kim Sung-hee, who was a trainee at DSP from middle school. When she left, Goo Ha-ra joined the band through an audition. Then came Kang Ji-young, who was introduced by NS Yoonji, a relative.

    If talent was the only thing DSP was looking for, then NS Yoonji would rightfully be a part of KARA today.

    But when the 24-year-old soloist came in for an audition, she was told that she didn’t exactly fit in with the group’s vibe. She then recommended her younger cousin.

    Polishing the gem
    With a minor reshuffling KARA spent just two months training before it launched its second album, and debut for its current members, “Rock You” in 2008. Needless to say, it wasn’t an easy few months.

    The plight of trainees is drawing more and more attention today as idol group members give their accounts of the training process once they make it big. Every aspect of a potential talent is scrutinized, from his or her age to looks, vocal, dancing skill and ability to connect with future audiences.

    “With all things, we ask the simple question, ‘Will they fit in with the group?’?” Yun says.

    The director says that a potential star’s “it” factor, or his or her ability to relate to the audience, also plays a big part in the auditions.

    “Being a singer is all about entertaining the masses, but if a candidate can’t stand in front of a crowd and sing, then there really isn’t much that we can do for them.”

    It’s also important that in today’s interactive media environment stars are taught good manners from the beginning.

    “Trainees are not celebrities, and we instill that in them,” says the PR manager, Cha Hee-jin. “In many ways, trainers are harsh on them like teachers would be to students.”

    Life of trainees
    Like many other agencies, DSP boasts a new talent development team that manages casting and auditions which take place once a month.

    Every month, 150 hopefuls register their interests online, but only about 20-25 make it through. Final cuts are even harsher, with only a handful moving on to become DSP trainees.

    Currently, there are about 20 trainees who clock in at DSP after school. Although the agency doesn’t pay its trainees, it does offer benefits and incentives such as rebates on gym memberships.

    The trainees - both those who come in at 1 p.m. and at 3 p.m. - spend about five to six hours training in dance and vocals.

    To equip them with the skills needed to reach its biggest target market, Japan, the trainees are also given Japanese language lessons.

    In terms of the private lives of the trainees, the agency does try to moderate it to a certain degree.

    “Like with any other adolescents, when trainees start dating, they lose a lot of time with which they could be spending on rehearsals, so we don’t really endorse it,” says Yun, who makes time to pull trainees aside to reprimand them if they are seen making moves rather than rehearsing new dance moves.

    Being media responsive
    Despite this, Yun acknowledges that kids are kids, and you can’t really keep puppy love from blossoming.

    After all, DSP is one of the few agencies that has a talent who is in a public relationship with a fellow idol group member.

    On KARA member Goo’s public romance with Beast member Yong Jun-hyung, Yun has a laissez-faire outlook.

    “After much deliberation, we told them, best of luck,” he says, looking back on the time when the paparazzi snapped a picture of the two together.

    Yun says that he has the “changing times” to thank for the somewhat relaxed policies of dating between idol groups.

    “Ten years ago, it would have been fatal [for their careers], but now the relationships among fans and idol groups are changing.”

    In fact, many a time, Goo has received support letters from fans rather than death threats.

    “One time, a fan from abroad handed Ha-ra a letter with hearts and the words ‘Ha-ra for Jun-hyung’ on it.”

    Yun says that the agency is always keeping up with what the fans are thinking, and decisions follow soon after.

    “We monitor what’s going on online so we know how to react. Even with issues like cosmetic surgery, you would just look like a fool in today’s society if you denied that entertainers had work done.”

    Marketing the brand
    The agency says that KARA’s success in Japan was a bit of a fluke, but how they capitalized on it with endorsement deals rolling in was creatively reactive. Due to its unexpected success in Japan, the group spends about 45-50 days of the year there.

    Instead of coming up with a marketing plan for overseas markets, as a lot of bigger agencies have done, DSP maintains its focus on group formation.

    “Of course when selecting idol group members these days they look for language abilities, vocals, rap and dance skills. Like other agencies, we look for these things too, but our point of difference is that we look for specific attributes that each member can bring.”

    Yun boasts that even physically, unlike many other girl groups, KARA members all have their unique appeal.

    In terms of what they bring to the group, Jung raps and speaks fluent English; Han and Park are vocalists; and Goo and Kang are the best dancers.

    Looking to the future
    Through the feats of its artists, DSP says that it hopes to gain momentum in the K-pop industry and eventually expand its operations across the globe.

    “Today the music environment is changing and many fans of bands become fans of agencies,” says Cha, the PR manager who has seen her share of fan letters and bizarre propositions.

    She added that it helps to see agencies as brands.

    “If you like Apple, then you tend to buy a lot of Apple goods, and it’s the same for the entertainment industry.”

    Apparently this philosophy works for recruiting talents too.

    “There are some who will go to auditions at a specific agency every two months,” Yun says. “It has a lot to do with a sort of mental fixation that a hopeful has.”

    One member from A-Jax, Jae-hyung, was such a case.

    He had idolized Kim Hyun-joong of SS501 and came to DSP to follow in his stead.

    “He said at the audition, ‘I want to make it here at DSP because Kim Hyun-joong is my role model.’ Even to this day, he raves about the agency during various interviews.”

    DSP says that later on, it wouldn’t be out of line to see a branch open up in America.

    “With focus on our brand name, we hope to expand little by little, with a new studio and taking on more employees,” Yun says.

    As the agency makes a steady progress, it believes that time is and will continue to be on its side.

    “The thing is that the music industry is fluid. Back in the ’90s, the Korean music scene was dominated by Western pop,” Yun says.

    “But now, it’s the other way around. In the United States, people are listening to K-pop and so there really has never been a time like this for Korean artists.”

    Following the first set of music videos featuring Nicole and Goo Hara’s solo tracks, KARA has now unveiled the music videos for Gyuri and Jiyoung’s tracks from their ‘KARA Solo Collection’ album.

    Gyuri’s solo track “Daydream” features a tango-like rhythm and plays out much like a musical number. The music video also stars Jung Seok Won, who plays the lead male character.

    Jiyoung’s “Wanna Do” is described as a rock ballad and features Supernova’s Park Geon Il on the music video’s storyline. Seungyeon, on the other hand, will transform into a rockstar for her solo track “Guilty”, the song which will further showcase her individual colors apart from KARA.

    Check out the MVs below!

    Girl group KARA will get their own animated adaptation that will air in Japan next spring.

    On December 1, DSP Media announced, “A traditional animation titled ‘KARA the Animation’ starring five members of KARA as its leading characters is to be broadcast at the beginning of next year. Following its airing in Japan, the series is expected to air in Korea during the first half of 2013.”

    The fictional stories will feature each of the members in a different career; Gyuri as a police officer, Seungyeon as an astronaut, Nicole as a passenger boat captain, Hara as security police for the Monaco royal family, and Jiyoung as a sexy and spirited firefighter.

    Each group member will provide the voices for the animated versions of themselves, as well as sing the series’ title song. The series will also mark each members voice-acting debut.

    An advanced preview of the show will premiere during the groups first performance at the Tokyo Dome stadium on January 6.
