On August 2 broadcast of tvN’s “Life Bar,” former KARA member Nicole appeared as a guest. When asked if she still talks to KARA members, the singer revealed that they have a group chat.
Nicole said, “we have a group messenger chat. I think I talk to Seungyeon unnie the most. Now that we have aged a bit, we talk about marriage a lot. Also, we always plan for a trip together.”
Then, the hosts of “Life Bar” asked when she misses the days of KARA the most. In response, Nicole said she misses KARA the most when she has a big performance or event ahead of her. “Back when we went on tours or concerts, we always held hands and huddled up to say our fightings. However, now that I’m alone, I don’t have anyone to hold hands before going on big stages like a press conference for my solo album. That’s when I first felt my mental breaking down,” the singer said.
She continued, “so when I did my solo concert in Japan, my manager secretly requested for a message from Seungyeon. As soon as I heard her voice, I teared up.”
To this, actor Choi Jung-Won added, “when you are in a team, you feel like the group succeeded because of you. However, once you become a soloist, you feel very small and the confidence lowers so much. So does self-esteem.”
