Holy production values! :eekrun:

Song's good, but not great. Maybe it'll grow on me.

I always enjoy looking at the cute Goo Hara, but the song is just generic pop and has nothing special to it.

They learned SO much when they were in Japan. Like how to make a video without using a lot of money! :D It's very Japanese in the way it was done.

Oh and I don't like the song, it reminds me of their last song. That rollarcoaster one.

Yeah, I am not digging it. Which is odd, since it's right in line with Jumping, which I enjoyed.

Dem outfits. I guess they took a page out of H!P's book.

Jumping! That's what it reminded me of, not Rollercoaster.

That's one big set. I couldn't finish the song because I was bored. I don't like the fashion choices.

There's a whole album that they released, not just this song. Not that it helps, since from the one half-assed listen I gave it, it sounded a lot like the song and nothing jumped out at me. Has anyone else checked it out?

While watching remixes of The Boys, I found this kinda badass rock remix of Step. Makes the song much better.

Should we just make this the official Kara thread ?

They have a new video:
Girl's Power
http://www.youtube.c...h?v=b0iGyVUafPw
Somebody used a reaaally shitty deinterlace filter on it.

EDIT:
Better quality:

So, I take it nobody here really cares about Kara ? =P

Zaeleus posted their new album in the A/V section, so I thought it might be worth discussing:
http://www.youtube.c...h?v=g0XpNvLWimo

But unfortunately I find the song to be boring and uninteresting. Not even the video can rescue it...

I started to take a liking in Step, which is a great party song.

Just realized I completely changed my opinion about that song. haha
This video might have helped a bit. :whistling:

I'll care about KARA again when it's 2007 again.
Or when Seungyeon learns to sing like Sunghee. Because everyone else in the group can barely carry a tune.

MOVING ON~ I actually like Pandora. I got so pissed when KARA when cutesy after Sunghee left, although it was probably for the best considering their vocal situation without her was dismal at best (Seungyeon is not a terrible singer, but she's nowhere near the other girl group's power vocals like Taeyeon, Ye-eun & Sunye, Hyorin, Luna, etc. And hey, she wasn't SUPPOSED to be the power vocals, so it's not her fault.) and then I got even MORE pissed when I was promised sexy awesomeness for Lupin which turned out to be a major disappointment, but Pandora is actually kind of fucking awesome. I can jam to it all day. I'll just avoid the lives and pretend Goo Hara, Nicole and Jiyeon can sing.

I actually also like Pandora a lot, and I'm not generally a big Kara fan. It's catchy.

I like Pandora too. I don't really know music terminology but I love the background synth-piano-sound in the verses (it also appears at the very start of the song in a more synthy fashion.) The chorus is a bit underwhelming in terms of catchiness but I still like the song overall.

I also liked Step, and the japanese version of Mister was really awesome as well. But before that you have to go all the way back to Break It (one of my favorite K-Pop tunes ever) to find a Kara song I really like. I guess it was mostly due to the shift into the cutesy realm that turned me off, but it looks like they've been moving away from that recently.

Another bump with another new song !

I guess Kara really only cares about Japan anymore. lol

Here's another overly-sugarly pop song, just like the last 108 Japanese releases...
The name's "Bye bye, happy days":
http://www.youtube.c...h?v=2Wq9Apq5KWU


I want cool Kara back.

Nicole and Jiyoung are possibly leaving Kara. Based on the article, it seems that Nicole is definitely leaving sometime around January as she decided not to renew her contract, and Jiyoung is still debating whether to pursue her singing career or education instead.

 

To be honest, I'm not a super huge fan of Kara, but I did like they're latest release. And I think it's kind of sad that this would happen considering all the disputes that they had with DSP a couple years ago.

For me Kara is Seungyeon, Hara and three background dancers, so I don't care if they're in the group or not.

However, it would probably be shit for the group dynamics.

Losing Jiyoung would hurt them in Japan. And Nicole is fairly well liked in Korea.

Pff I didn't even notice they were doing this Project Kara/Baby Kara thing

The girl is cute but all this show, and seeing this girls perform KARA's song just made me miss Nicole and SPECIALLY Jiyoung :(

 

Ap, do you know when will she officially join KARA?

I loved it, idk why but I always enjoy singing KARA's songs

I think they're presence and solo shots are equal, minus for Youngji, who has less of both things

 

I was so 'busy' looking at how this K4R4 turned out that I forgot about Nicole and Jiyoung, then almost at the end of the song I realize that Jiyoung is not around anymore and now the chorus isn't giving me a good vibe haha. And btw am I the only one who keeps hearing A DIFFERENT SONG at the 'ireohke~' part on each chorus? Like I have heard that somewhere...
