It doesn't sound like anything life threatening, but still pretty serious. I hope he's alright once they get him stitched up and what not again.

dsp says: kara wont get replacement members

After the news broke out that Nicole is not renewing her contract, speculations about recruiting new member stirred up. In response to this, DSP Media revealed to Star News on 6th that they don't have any plan to recruit new members for KARA.

A representative from DSP Media stated, "As Nicole hasn't showed any intention in renewing her contract, it will expire as scheduled on January next year." He added, "With Nicole's departure, we don't have any plan to recruit new member."

Further, "The foundation of each members are already firm, with KARA's current popularity, we are doubtful in adding new member. There are assumptions around that we are going to have new member, but because of the current situation, it would unlikely to happen. We would rather work with the established foundation."

Nicole Clarifies Her "Departure" from KARA on Twitter


The possible departure of KARA's Nicole and Jiyoung from the group has set the K-Pop world in turmoil over the past few days with the news that one of its biggest groups may be going through a major shift.

To ease her fans, Nicole posted a long, heartfelt message on Twitter earlier today, outlining some of her reasons behind her decision and plans for the future.

Basically she wants to continue being a member of KARA, but be personally managed by a different company. But if the fans and DSP don't agree, she will continue on as Jung Nicole, not KARA's Nicole. The fact that DSP chose to leak out the details of her contract and basically saying it's her decision to leave KARA obviously shows that they're trying to throw their weight around. Somewhere, Kim Kwang Soo is rubbing his hands in glee.

Soo-Hyuk boasting about his connections, Jong-Hyun driving him insane - nothing has changed from the last ep, really. I like their interactions a lot though and I'm quite enjoying the whole show so far. Any opinions on the presented items/news? (Oh and dear mods, I hope I did everything right and this hasn't been submitted yet.)

T-ara to promote double title tracks, Eunjung revealed to have participated in the arrangement

On the 7th, T-ara's agency Core Contents Media said T-ara will release their 8th mini album "AGAIN" on the 10th with the double title tracks "Number Nine" and "I Know The Feeling."

"Number Nine" is composed by Shinsadong Tiger and Choi Kyusung. It's a song that begins with a sensitive melody and intro and changes into an intense electric dance song with sorrowful and emotional lyrics, while "I Know The Feeling" is a sad and addictive medium-tempo that maximizes the emotion.

T-ara's agency said, "T-ara was supposed to only show a dance track for their comeback, but they wanted to show as many different images as possible.."

"I Know The Feeling" was composed by Baek Deoksang. The acoustic music arrangement was done in collaboration with T-ara's own member Eunjung after she expressed her desire to participate.

Eunjung said, "For the first time, I've helped participate in making T-ara's music. I had fun and learned with a open-heart and carefully prepared for it with QUEEN's in mind and am excited for them to hear it. The acoustic guitar melody shows off a different side of us (T-ara) and is a good song for autumn. I hope fans will like both 'Number Nine' and 'I Know The Feeling'."

T-ara's eighth mini-album "AGAIN" will be released on the 10th, and their music videos will be released on the same day.
