Kara’s Fan Club Protests Adding New Members



Kara‘s fan club Kamilia has been hitting the headlines in Korea with banners hung at locations throughout the country in protest of the addition of new members. The girl group, originally a five-member outfit, was rocked by the news of the departure of two of its members earlier this year. Ex-members Nicole and Jiyoung left DSP Media when their contracts with the entertainment company expired.

Recently, however, DSP has launched a search for new members for the group, in the form of a reality show called “Kara Project.” The show is airing on cable channel MBC Music. It seems fans of the group have reacted angrily to this idea, however. Photographs of the banners posted on Twitter and Facebook, show that for a certain section of Kara followers, it would be preferable for remaining members Hara, Gyuri and Seungyeon to continue as a trio.

The banners are adorned with slogans which read, “DSP Media, we are opposed to adding new members to Kara.”

The protests come ahead of the group’s scheduled meeting with fan club members, “Kamilia Day Fan Meeting.” The event will be held in the afternoon of May 24. Up to 5,000 fans usually attend such events, but so far, only around 1,000 people have signed up for it, as fans continue to show their displeasure at DSP’s decision.

1. [+2,872, -41] I'm against it too... It'll be easier for them to stick to individual activities. And what's going on with Rainbow, did DSP throw them out?

2. [+2,078, -235] Sounds more like noise marketing. KARA doesn't even have fans anymore.

3. [+1,613, -72] They need a member, at least one, who can sing

4. [+1,227, -75] KARA's over now ㅋㅋ

5. [+1,222, -74] Both their fandom and the company are messes ㅋㅋ

6. [+188, -27] KARA hit the height of their fame with 'Lupin' and have been on the downfall ever since.

7. [+177, -24] DSP is so useless ㅋㅋㅋ This would've never happened to KARA if they were managed differently.

8. [+133, -13] Seungyeon and Gyuri are nearing 30 now, disband and let them go their separate ways. Adding a new member seems hopeless.

20142121140085812600

7-members boy group BTOB is rather pleasant. As opposed to boy groups who speak very seriously on hierarchy and sequences, to BTOB, these are just luxuries. This is because of leader Seo Eunkwang’s (25 years old) charisma that allows a harmonious family-like atmosphere among the members. He revealed, that he’s always the ‘last’ in terms of sequence in the team.

On the 22nd, ‘Sports Seoul’ made a sudden attack to BTOB’s practice room in Cube Entertainment. The seven members said they were late on schedules, although it was revealed that they are practicing for next month’s Dream Concert. It was a difficult practice session, but the members were always bloomed with laughter. The leader is the motivation for BTOB.
