At least I know there's no bad feelings between them..Thats all I need right now :)

I really don't see what everyone's beef with this "possible reunion" is..first of what are the girls supposed to be showing us that makes us think it will happen ?? Yall act like we will know when they openly support eachother, but I don't see how that will prove anything. They have stated countless times that they are trying to become known on their own and not depend on one another. They want to be known for their own name and not kara and if they linger around eachother too much people will never think of them outside of kara. That doesn't mean they don't support eachother. Do they have to tell and show us every little thing to prove that?? They don't have to prove anything. Even with keeping their contact quiet they have still posted stuff together in support, celebrated their anniversaries and liked eachothers post. I highly doubt they wanna do a reunion rn. That doesn't mean it can't happen. I think people need to stop waiting for signs and just support them and when or if the time comes we can enjoy their reunion. I also think their seperate companies could play into making a reunion hard as well, but who knows.

It isn't just about the name. DSP owns KARA. Period. They own the name, the franchise, the copyrights, the choreo, all of it. Yes, the former members could form something on their own, but it wouldn't be KARA and they couldn't perform any of the songs that made them famous without permission or getting sued. IF DSP wanted to, they could reform KARA around Youngji and the former members would have zero say in the matter.

BigBlueagain Monday, May 15, 2017

I admire her loyalty, but so far I have seen zero support from the other former members for any of her projects. Can't wait to hear her sing again :)

i dunno if the "comeback" is going to be with the KARA5 or the KARA4? it seems weird if they comeback without Nicole, Jiyoung, and with Youngji instead. I think the new song she is referring to maybe her solo debut though. since she say she hope to stand on stage with her members "One day" she didnt say it was going to be soon.

TaiYeoshin Winston Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Um, I am not to sure if I am reading your post right but they have came back without Nicole, Jiyoung and with Youngji. Mamma Mia was kara4 and Cupid was Kara4, Gyuri, Hara, Seungyung, and Younji.

Winston TaiYeoshin Tuesday, May 16, 2017

I mean when i think of "Reunion" i think of the reunion as with the original KARA. Before Nicole And Jiyoung left. which is the 5 member KARA which promoted for the longest period of time.

monaco Winston Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Yeah I would hope that Nicole and Jiyoung could reunite with Kara for the reunion stage

BigBlueagain Winston Saturday, May 20, 2017

The "original" KARA was 4. Sunghee, Guri, Seungyeon, and Nicole. Sunghee left, Hara and Jiyoung came in. Nichol and Jiyoung left, Youngji came in. Now that Guri, Seungyeon, and Hara have left, if they wanted to, DSP could bring in whoever they wanted to and keep KARA going around Youngi. And yes, there is a precedent for that. An old band called "Jefferson Starship" started off as "Jefferson Airplane". They just kept replacing people who left until none of the original members were left. (the "originals" started touring as an oldies group under their original name, but that's a long story). Honestly though, I don't think the fans would stand for it. Still, legally, KARA is whatever DSP decides it is.

Winston BigBlueagain Sunday, May 21, 2017

i think the "original" lineup depends on which lineup promoted the longest, and also which lineup gained most fans. it may not necessarily be the debut lineup, just as Apink started off with 7 but they are now more famous as 6, no one really remember the 7th member name when you talk about Apink nowadays also. Same with AOA's band only member who left. as same Wonder Girls, if you count Hyunah as a WG member also, then WG is now unofficially like 6 or 7 members with Hyelim and Hyuna and the other 5 girls. so a reunion can be with 5 or 6 or 7 members? but i doubt most wonder girls fans consider Hyuna to be under WG, and more under 4Minute.

BigBlueagain Winston Sunday, May 21, 2017

Still, original means "present or existing from the beginning; first or earliest. as in "the original owner of the house"" You're talking about the most famous version, but that isn't the original. I know I'm nitpicking but words do have meanings.

Since breaking up, NONE of the past KARA Group members have even done a 'duo' song collaboration. I thought that GYURI and her THE AIRPORT backup band could maybe be a good way to create a collaboration with another KARA member. However, NOTHING happening so far. And NOT clear to me that there is ANY reason to expect even a 'duo' collaboration from past KARA Group members. KARA Group reunion = PIPE DREAM as I see it.

krell Monday, May 15, 2017

The problem of the past KARA Group members ALL being with DIFFERENT AGENCIES is a BIG 'stumbling block' to any reunion activity too.

Nana_96 krell Saturday, May 20, 2017

Honestly I don't see what it is they have to be doing to make anyone think a reunion could happen. Are they supposed to prove it somehow? The girls support eachother even though they don't make it super obvious on social media. That doesn't mean they never talk. Even then they have posted some pictures together and liked eachothers posts and ect. Even Youngji's. The way I see it is, yeah right now they aren't going to show signs or anything like that for a reunion because they only separated like 2 years ago. They are trying to stand on their own without dependants on eachother and do their seperate things first. I highly doubt they would do any kind of reunion right now, but just because we don't see with our eyes their support towards one another doesn't necessarily rule out a reunion.

krell Nana_96 Saturday, May 20, 2017

@Nana_96 <-- First ; NOT looking to 'annoy or troll' you here somehow. And, I actually sympathize somewhat with your overall viewpoint. BUT, the reality is that the KARA members are likely to ALL be with DIFFERENT AGENCIES for say the next 10 YEARS. And *that* makes it VERY difficult for *all* the AGENCIES involved to agree to much of anything. Usually, the CONTRACTS are of an EXCLUSIVE nature. Meaning that ANYTHING that say GOO HARA does it ; has to be APPROVED by KEYEAST Agency (her current one). Sure, some kind of 'renunion' of KARA members MIGHT happen. But the 'odds' seem against it overall, in my view. For the reasons that I did say them above ... I would say that your 'best bet' for some kind of KARA Member 'reunion' might be a few of them getting together for an interview on a K-TV Talk Show. GYURI and SEUNGYEON are fairly good friends ; and HARA *might* join them ; as a 'reunion' of the 'CORE3' members of KARA Group on a TV Show. But I do NOT see NICOLE participating in it ; or JIYOUNG either. This is just a *guess* on my part ; others can surely see it differently.

BigBlueagain krell Saturday, May 20, 2017

KARA barely got anything done when all the members were in the same company. That group has had internal problems/company problems/legal problems since day one.

krell BigBlueagain Saturday, May 20, 2017

Okay ; about there being some 'friction' between KARA5 members and DSP Agency even when KARA Group was *rising* in popularity. BUT, more recently, GYURI and SEUNGYEON did do a SKYPE video phone 'visit' with APRIL Group fans in JAPAN, to help promote APRIL Group there. And yes, the *impression* that I have it is that NICOLE is *less* than enamored with DSP Agency. And also, JIYOUNG left KARA5 with *very likely* ALREADY having a CONTRACT offer from the JAPAN Agency that she is now with them. So, NOT so clear to me that DSP Agency 'likes' NICOLE and JIYOUNG that much either. As to GOO HARA, difficult to know the situation between her and DSP Agency. But HARA is with KEYEAST Agency now ; and wants to get an ACTING ROLES career happening for her. Which, NOT sure that means HARA is that interested in K-pop therefore. ALTHOUGH, HARA did do a VOCAL feature (no visual) on THUNDER's (K-pop Idol) last MV release. But *mostly* I do tend to *agree* with your observation on KARA Group.

The reunion isnt even worth it at this point with this regressing industry. NEver the less 5ting kara 5ting youngji.

Nana_96 Moomoomineelvis Saturday, May 20, 2017

Exactly when is this reunion supposed to happen..?? Everyone keeps talking like it's hopeless now like if it's too late. 90s groups are barely having the right reunions now, 10-20 years later. Kara is supposed to have theirs 2 years later? People need to chill.

kzrn_nrzk Monday, May 15, 2017

aww youngji.. so beautiful from inside and outside!

MissSass98 Monday, May 15, 2017

I will take new Kara music in whatever form or lineup. I miss my girls so much

Mystica Monday, May 15, 2017

When a glass broke, you can't stick the shattered piece together. That is KARA, they are known as five members, SY, GR, NC, HR, JI. They better stop thinking about the past, start moving forward in life. Youngji, I understand your situation but I don't think it is a good idea. You were not an original member, plus nothing will go back they same thing it used to be. I think her label should make her solo artist, instead of putting her randomly in groups! It is not fair for her to debut with new trainees, and not fair for the original KARA members.

BigBlueagain Mystica Saturday, May 20, 2017

KARA is whatever DSP decides it is. The former members have no say in the matter.

Mystica BigBlueagain Saturday, May 20, 2017

and I can say whatever I want to say, it is none of your business.

BigBlueagain Mystica Sunday, May 21, 2017

Ditto. And not only am I saying you're wrong and delusional, I'm proving it while you're sitting there like a fetus having a tantrum.

Mystica BigBlueagain Sunday, May 21, 2017

fuk u vagina, or u butthole

BigBlueagain Mystica Sunday, May 21, 2017

Thus the fetus proves my point yet again. Face it cunt, you're so far out of your league with me it's not even a joke. I think it's time to introduce you to the fade crew.

Mystica BigBlueagain Sunday, May 21, 2017

haha u poor thing, call ur squad whenever i put a reply and make them dislike my comments, u no wut? i don't care! OR maybe u r having sort of schizophrenia of making various accounts to enhance urself again poor thing.

BigBlueagain Mystica Monday, May 22, 2017

LOL. You are so pathetic. Ok this would normally be entertaining but I'm actually starting to feel sorry for you and we can't have that. So... dismissed.

Mystica BigBlueagain Monday, May 22, 2017

okay another comment, bring ur squad to 5 dislike them. XD
