DSP Media has released the video for "Baby KARA No.1," the first contestant in KARA's project to find two new members.  This contestant, So Jin, shows her passion for dancing and her desire to stand on stage in her short clip.  She definitely has the looks and the fit body to pull off being an idol, but does she have the talent and what it takes to be a part of KARA?

Meanwhile, a timer for the next contestant to be introduced is going off on the main site, showing that a new contestant will be revealed every day leading up to the actual competition.  Stay tuned for who's next!

Most of the girls are recycled from previous failed DSP group (Puretty) could it be coincidence that Puretty debuted in Japan therefore if any of them make this 'Project KARA' cut they will already be a step ahead of the game by having the basic grasp of the Japanese market making that transition easier as well or that even though Jiyoung and Nicole left on their own behalf the remain 3 members had 2 years left on their contracts. If you compare and look at group photo's Jiyoung and Nicole appear on the end alot and if you consider the history of both's individual activities while in KARA, they dont seem to compare to the remaining three. I wish the exiting members all the best luck and the future band the same success. But if you want a completely random and unbiased opinion i believe that the new KARA may already more in the works than expected (aka; pre-planning) and i do believe this new hybrid KARA will be stronger. I have seen alot of positive feedback about SoMin aka Jeon So-Min(17).. she was the supposed leader of puretty, if you are interested in her or Shi Yoon(18) or Chae Kyung(17) vocals/dance. check out a Puretty mv on Dailymotion or youtube. Seungyeon and Nicole make a cameo on one of the mv's.

On January 17, 2014, DSP Media announced that the group had been disbanded with the possibility of its members debuting into other groups in the future.[2]

the last comment^ was quoted on wikipedia in reference to Puretty. Weird or just coincidence?...

Seeing this video makes me feel somehow sad but I guess it is really the time to turn a new page in KARA history. I will stand beside them and hope KARA can find the perfect new members that would be able to gain love from everyone.

dolla Saturday, May 17, 2014

Oh come one! I just read some of the comments here and I can't believe what is going on! Were is the loyal Kamilia that supported KARa through every step of their way? Where is the Kamilia that was famous for being polite? Where is the Kamilia that KARA loves so much? Listen guys, I know it's hard to accept that Nicole and Jiyoung are gone and that DSP will replace them. But you are forgetting that the same happen when SungHee left, but we still support them. I just wish true Kamilia stay strong and support our lovely KARA (KARA4 KARA5 newKARA5) as a family would!

I agree people should support the group an be able to let go, sometimes it's selfish for fans to hold back celebrities from them doing what they want!! I'm sure DSP will make a good choice

ot94ever Friday, May 16, 2014

Agreed. People tend to forget that Jiyoung and Hara were both newcomers, as well.

blackangel21 Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Happy for Kara no matter what love each of them


this just reminds me how manufactured this industry is...wish things were a bit more organic is all...

smygjypcube Wednesday, May 14, 2014

I'm right and you're all just acting snotty. Stop whining. You're gonna warm up when they comeback anyway. Wannabe fans. Feeling bad for Kara. Bet the girls have absolutely no problem adding new members. YOU FORGET IT WAS NICOLE AND JIYOUNGS CHOICE TO LEAVE. fans aren't even supporting Kara when they need them the most. Horrible fans.

Got sad by your comment, Yes, Some fans are just pretending, Yes, It's hard to accept and move on that 2 members left them behind, But as for the other members? We should still support them no matter what because they have stayed. :( Some KARA fans are just pretending...
