Former KARA member Jiyoung dropped some gorgeous cuts from her recent photo shoot in Japan through her Instagram on August 22!

In the picture, she shows off her mature looks as well as her fit body in comfortable workout clothes.  She looks athletic, casual, yet also sexy at the same time.  She also dons flashy dresses, making you wonder what the overall concept is but also not caring because she looks good in every look regardless.

"making you wonder what the overall concept is" look, allkpop.... if you actually do some little research you'll stop wondering and actually give real relevant informations about anything. This is for her next photobook called "The first stage" where she'll showcase the behind the scenes of her first musical in Japan, the broadway musical "Sweet Charity" where she'll be the main actress. So please, research before writing a two paragraphs long "article" making look like she has a job once in a year when actually she is working non-stop as singer/actress/model/Radio DJ. Thank you.

Jiyoung (June 2016) ... 

krell Monday, August 22, 2016

I did *not* 'see it coming' that JIYOUNG had her move to JAPAN (Agency) for ACTING ROLES all *set up* in advance of her leaving KARA5. And also, I did *not* see JIYOUNG's much more *powerful* current 'sensual concept' coming either. GOO HARA tended to get a *lot* of the VISUAL 'sensual buzz' with KARA5. Whereas, JIYOUNG was a bit too young in age for that most of the time. JIYOUNG joined KARA at AGE 14 (2008). Interestingly, JIYOUNG is the *COUSIN* of NS YOON-G (female K-pop Idol). So, I suppose that we should have realized the 'sensual concept' capability of JIYOUNG all along.

thats his style

Judging by the shape of her tush, I can tell that she is in decent physical condition.

MissSass98 Monday, August 22, 2016

She has really blossomed into a beautiful, independent women. Always supporting you Jiyoung!

BigBlueagain Monday, August 22, 2016

Have to say I like her a LOT more on her own. She was just too friggin cutesy in KARA and I just pretty much didn't pay attention to her that much there. (ok, later before she left she started getting my attention).

Cherry_Peche Monday, August 22, 2016

For goodness sakes, allkpop, it's been 3 YEARS and you're still milking the "former KARA member" thing.

NOT everyone that uses the AKP website and might view this AKP ARTICLE does *know* it that JIYOUNG was a member of KARA5 for a *very* long time. This even applies to JESSICA JUNG and her ex-SNSD situation. It will take at least say 3 years (from leaving an IDOL Group) for the IDOL GROUP references to be less used by K-News Media (my guess). In fact, a *lot* of the newer AKP users do NOT even know to CLICK on the (GRAY color) TAGS where it says "Jiyoung" to LIST ALL of her AKP ARTICLES.

krell BigBlueagain Monday, August 22, 2016

JIYOUNG is more active in JAPAN than S.KOREA now. So, I think that the 'Former KARA' references for JIYOUNG will persist. Because JIYOUNG is actually NOT mentioned that much in S.KOREA News Media anymore. So, it is a 'refresher' situation, as I see it. People see the "ex-KARA" and it suddenly 'clicks' for them; IF they ever knew of KARA. Which, how quickly they forget! ... ;-)

excellent booty shot!!

2fat Monday, August 22, 2016

She's cute. I looked her up she's 22, looks 15 of course. I seriously doubt she's 5'5" though.

eager_beaver 2fat Monday, August 22, 2016

She's just 22? Whoa!! So she started in Kara at the age of 14. Damn.

2fat eager_beaver Monday, August 22, 2016

Huh. Well aren't all the kpop groups pretty young when they debut?

eager_beaver 2fat Monday, August 22, 2016

Pretty young? I guess 18-19 which is the age when many idols debut is pretty young, but that's still very different from 14 which is a rare age for an idol. I tried to find a member that young in any of the recent groups and couldn't find any. A few 16-17 year olds, like Tzuyu who debuted last year at the age of 16. But most are still 18 and up.

2fat eager_beaver Monday, August 22, 2016

Don't some of the boys debut that young?

krell 2fat Monday, August 22, 2016

JINSOL of APRIL Group was AGE = 13.75 when APRIL Group (DSP Agency, like KARA) did debut one year ago.

krell eager_beaver Monday, August 22, 2016

The other interesting fact is that JIYOUNG is the *COUSIN* of NS YOON-G (female K-pop Idol).

krell Monday, August 22, 2016

ChaeKyung (DSP Agency), recently C.I.V.A Group (TV Show = "The God of Music" Season 2), and now IBI Group (comprised of PD101 TV Show members), did actually DEBUT at AGE 16 via PURETTY Group targeted at JAPAN (via DSP Agency). PRETTY Group did pretty much fail. But the members of it (also ShiYoon, SoMin) are *still* with DSP Agency.

krell Monday, August 22, 2016

For a 5 member New K-pop Group. My view is that the AGENCY wants a LEADER that is close to AGE 18. Hopefully, the LEADER does MAIN VOCAL, and 'rides herd' on the remaining 4 members. The other 4 members, close to AGE 16 is probably best; but 16-18 is okay. Members closer to AGE 15 can be a *problem* because they QUIT. Or their PARENTS don't like the situation; and like that. Closer to AGE 14, like JIYOUNG's debut with KARA, is more *rare* but it can work out. HYUNA (ex-4MINUTE) did debut with WONDER GIRLS (2006) at AGE 14. But she 'pulled out' of WG and K-pop for health reasons (parental involvement). And then HYUNA later returned with CUBE Agency, and 4MINUTE Group (2009) was created around her.

krell Monday, August 22, 2016

SOMI of IOI Group, is now AGE = 15.5 approximately. So, SOMI has been somewhat 'seen' in K-pop since AGE 15. Which, SOMI is a 'prize' in that her FATHER is in K-Entertainment too. So, SOMI *knows* what it takes to succeed in K-pop; and it likely to DELIVER that. Which, I think SOMI could be a 4th New MISS A member with NO PROBLEM. And fans would LOVE IT = SUZY and SOMI. And the SOMI 'body type' fits just fine too for MISS A Group. But nobody likes this idea because of the SOMI age. Which, I think the SOMI age is NOT a problem in her situation. SOMI is more like an AGE 18 K-pop Idol in many ways.

she really is in Japan now :) good luck..

Arrghroth Monday, August 22, 2016

I still love her even though you can't really see much of her if you are not able to follow her Japanese releases. But man she is still one of the cutest and prettiegirls out there
