March 29 marks the 10 year anniversary for girl group KARA. In celebration of the special day, former KARA member Nicole posted a heartwarming message on Instagram.

Nicole stated, "Before you know it, it has become our 10th-anniversary. A two digit number... I can feel that we've come a long way. I really appreciate everyone who stood by us even when we're lacking. It's so precious that I have people to celebrate the special with. I wish that Kamilia, the members, and everyone are healthy and happy everywhere they go  ♥"

In 2014, Nicole left KARA and DSP Media. Gyuri, Hara, and Seungyeon also left the label in 2016 while Youngji, who joined the group in 2014, remained. Despite the departure, the girls denied the disbandment of KARA. Many hope to see the group back together again in the future. 

‪어느세 우리 10주년이네요 . 두자리숫자라니...‬ ‪얼마나 먼길을 왔는지 느껴지네요 . 그동안 부족한 저희 옆에서 같이 웃어주고 저희 곁을 지켜준 여러분에게 너무 감사합니다. 10년간 이특별한 하루를 같이 축하할수있는 사람들이 있다는게 너무 소중하네요. 정말 앞으로도 긴시간 동안 우리 모두, 카밀리아,콜링, 그리고 멤버들 다 어디에 있어도 아프지말고 건강하고 행복한 일들 가득하길 ❤️‬ いつかもう10周年になりましたよね。その間不足した私たちのそばで 一緒に笑ってくれて 私達のそばを守ってくれたみんなさんに感謝しています。10年間の間 こんな特別な日を 一緒にお祝い出来る人がいるってことが本当に大切ですね。これからも ずっと 私達みんな,KAMILIA, COLLING , それと メンバーのみんなも どこにいても、元気で お幸せに#karasia2012#kara10thanniversary

Happy anniversary KARA & fellow Kamilias! I hope that DSP can put aside their differences & one day we will see our members reunite including Cole :) If there is ever a girl group that can reunite (like so many boy groups do) then it will be our KARA, the girl group that conquered many firsts! :)

Julia Wednesday, March 29, 2017

I just hope they will make an album or a project together for their 15th anniversary or sth!

lechuga Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Holy crap. I always keep forgetting that Kara is older than SNSD. It's sad that they couldn't formally be together but its nice to see fans of kara honoring them. Congratulations Kamillas on 10 years 😀

I wonder what Nicole is up to.  Hopefully she made enough money while with Kara that she isn't struggling financially with the apparent lack of any work for the last two years since she released "Mama."  Such a long layoff makes it progressively harder to stage a comeback especially as a soloist.

icysnowrunt14 kentv Tuesday, March 28, 2017

She was pretty active in Japan after the Mama release. However, after her album last I heard she's been more active doing dance classes. So she might be alright with the money she receives doing that.

kentv icysnowrunt14 Tuesday, March 28, 2017

That makes sense regarding teaching dance. She should be able to make a comfortable living teaching dance to kids who are aspiring trainees or want to become backup dancers with her resume as a main dancer for a top girl group.

Winston icysnowrunt14 Tuesday, March 28, 2017

I think she seems to be doing like what Kahi did, moving towards a dance teacher/instructor instead of being an active singer.

kentv Winston Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Probably the best move in the long run as she didn't really seem to have the vocalist skills to be a soloist and very few soloists survive without being very good vocalists and even some of them struggle.

Winston kentv Tuesday, March 28, 2017

While fans will probably miss her releasing albums and seeing her work, i think working behind the scene, maybe better for her, and less antis and hate. she could also try her hand at composing songs for other artists, like BEG's Jea, but i dunno how good she will be in that area.

icysnowrunt14 kentv Thursday, March 30, 2017

I agree with what a lot of you are saying. However she actually was considered to be a vocal asset in Kara5. She sang lead on quite a bit of the hits like Pretty, Lupin, and We're With You due to her younger sounding voice which was more stable than JiYoung's and Hara's at the time. But you guys are right. She is a good performer but may not be the best for a solo vocal stage due to the large amount of great talent she maybe overshadowed (as we saw during the Mama era). Hopefully we will see more of her though, she was my favorite out of all the line ups.

unscrewedhorses Tuesday, March 28, 2017

That fan billboard is so cute, the way they have pics of all three line-ups.  ^^

BigBlueagain Tuesday, March 28, 2017

DSP owns KARA. Unless the former members work something out with the company, the only "official" member right now is Youngji... who Kamilla keep discounting. I don't see it happening with all the problems that the girls have had with this company in the past.

krell BigBlueagain Tuesday, March 28, 2017 ... <-- GYURI has this NEW Acting Role on a *DAILY* K-TV Show Drama coming up soon. So, this *may* be a 'signal' that GYURI becomes more an ACTRESS in the future. Which, that likely means LESS concern about K-pop Music for her. As example, look at AHN SOHEE (Wonder Girls), who probably has NO INTENTION to ever do K-pop Music again (my guess). Now that her ACTING ROLES career is going well ... And I agree ; NOT seeing much KARA5 activity in the future. MAYBE a K-TV Talk Show gathering ; or a LIVE STREAMING VIDEO gathering of *some* KARA5 members ... JIYOUNG is pretty much *settled* in JAPAN now ... (Joking) ... And HARA is 'busy' *kissing* SULLI !!! ...

BigBlueagain krell Tuesday, March 28, 2017

That barely even qualified as a peck. I feel lied to by that headline.

KARA will only re-unite maybe at their 20th anniversary like SES, by then all the members will be out of their agencies, and probably mums by then. i think in 2020, if IC is still airing, i hope they do a "Back to the 2000s" special, and show a lot of kpop hits from the 2001 to 2009, era.

krell Winston Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Yes, your estimation of these 'K-pop Group' reunion situations ; seems a *lot* as I see it too.

Winston krell Wednesday, March 29, 2017

most groups need a Good reason to reunite, be it 5 years like what IOI promised, or 10 or 15, 20 years, usually its a nice number like 5, 10, 20. since its the 10th year and KARA is unlikely to regroup, as the members are still trying to find footing in their new career fields, the next milestone seems to be 20th year. before the call for regroup/reunion is big enough to make them want to do it, not saying it will happen for sure.

krell Winston Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Yes, for KARA members ; 10 years *more* from now ; I would assume that *some* will be married with children. And *some* likely will NOT want to attract any 'renewed attention' from the *very* small percentage of WACKY K-pop Fans that might remember them in an annoying manner. Witness LEE HYORI ; and what happened at her HOME on JEJU ISLAND. Once some leave the K-Entertainment Business ; they want to LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND !!! ...

Winston krell Wednesday, March 29, 2017

like i say, it varies with individual, I think Lee Hyori is someone whom has seen both sides of the spectrum, she is someone whom has experienced the High end of luxury lifestyle before, dined on Fine food, wore expensive clothes, seen and experienced fine living, but having seen that, done that, i think she eventually decided to live a simpler life, become a vegetarian and doing gardening and farming in her home in Jeju instead of driving around in fast cars and high end Gangnam apartments, that she could have afford. its like a King who suddenly choose to become a monk and leave the world of luxury and competitiveness behind to live a life of secular and peace, with someone she love. i think thats why she was very annoyed with people treating her home like a tourist spot, and even YJS who came to see her to ask her about going on IC, back then, didnt even get to enter her house to film the interior. i guess some celebrities may get tired of the "stress and constant media attention" of celebrity life that they prefer to retire in peace, since they made enough $$ when they are in their 20s and 30s. While some like SES may yearn or miss their days singing together and being on the stage again, with fans cheering them and the feeling of being loved again. DSP's Sech Kies is one example of a former DSP group re-united though it was not under DSP, that they re-grouped under. i dunno if KARA will ever have the chance to do that too, and if so, will it be with Nicole, Jiyoung or Youngji? or will be it KARA6? (plus Youngji by then), lol.

krell Winston Wednesday, March 29, 2017

SUNYE (Wonder Girls) is living in CANADA ; which I would *guess* that is a LOT better from a K-pop Fan 'intrusion' standpoint. IF you get WEALTHY enough ; I guess living in like SWITZERLAND appeals to some 'Celebrities.' Cannot say that I blame them. After awhile ; 'one too many' autograph seekers in your life.

Winston krell Wednesday, March 29, 2017

i cant remember where i read or hear it, but i think Sooyoung also had a dream of doing missionary work (probably with her husband) ard the world also, since she is a Christian, i wonder if she will be like Sunye who married someone doing charity work and travelling ard the world. like Jinusean's Sean also doing a lot of charity.

krell Winston Wednesday, March 29, 2017 ... <-- SOOYOUNG ; HARA ; DAMBI ; Fashion Photos (recent).

taylena Winston Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Really? Sech Kies reunited? How many years after? It's really too bad that KARA wouldn't reunite sooner than that. Many of the groups they debuted are still around, so the fans are too. I know they are trying to work into other industries but it does seem like a good time to reunite, especially with all the other older groups reuniting or other idol groups staying together even though they went to different agencies.

krell taylena Thursday, March 30, 2017

Both GYURI and SEUNGYEON have done *promotional* type work for DSP Agency with regard to APRIL Group in JAPAN ; along with YOUNGJI too. G & S did a SKYPE video phone call to JAPAN for an APRIL Group 'Fan Event' there ; that YOUNGJI was physically present and performed along with APRIL Group too. BUT, I am NOT so clear that DSP Agency *wants* a 'reunion' of KARA Group to take place. After all, DPS Agency wants their *current* KARD and APRIL Groups to be POPULAR ; and *not* really looking to have KARA Group *distract* from that (my view). And DSP Agency does OWN THE KARA SONGS and BRAND NAME. So, likely, even IF the KARA5 members wanted to do something in K-pop again, they would have to CHANGE the GROUP NAME. And I *doubt* that DSP Agency would let them use the KARA songs at this time. MAYBE say ten years from now, the DSP Agency attitude might be different. But for now, I am guessing that DSP Agency is *not* that 'excited' by the notion of any KARA5 activity.

krell taylena Thursday, March 30, 2017 ... <-- GYURI did this LIVE performance at a VIETNAM Festival ; and 'covered' some KARA hit songs (Aug. 2016) ... And in December 2016, HARA did a VOCAL feature (*only* ; NO visual of HARA in the MV) on a THUNDER MV here --> ...
