Alright here's the deal. A new Korean girl band called KARA is on the rise. I know very little about them except that they're the new Fin.K.L or atleast supposed to be as famous as Fin.K.L, if DSP Ent gets what they want. I don't know really. They just own!
The girls are:
Park Gyu Ri (1988),
Han Seung Yeon (1988),
Jung Nicole (1991) and
Kim Sung Hee (1989)
Seems like their first album Vol.1 - The First Blooming is already out. And the PV for Break it is available on youtube as we speak. I suggest y'all check it out.
It took an instant to fall in love with them. It will take forever to get tired of them.
Someone who knows more. Fill me in please.
Edit: Dibs on Hui Seong!
Edit2: I accidently posted this in the J-music forum. My bad, talking point will have to do unless any mod thinks otherwise.
