Their concept is called Stealer and they had released two teaser pictures a couple days ago as well as their album jacket yesterday. The girls are ditching the colorful parachute pants and are slapping on black tights, going for a dark and ominous look while retaining their sexy vibe.
With the release of the album jacket, it was also known that their title track would be titled Lupin (루팡), most likely referring to the fictional French gentleman thief Arsène Lupin. However, many of you may be more familiar with the Japanese manga/anime Lupin III, grandson of Arsène. KARA will be adapting the “gentleman” concept but switching it up to a more “woman-like” look as they become classy, graceful, suave and sexy thieves.
The latest photo gives us a clearer image to the girls’ new look and it seems a few of them went through some changes in hairstyle. What do you guys think, yay or nay?
Be sure to stay tuned to allkpop for the February 12th teaser release of Lupin, the album release on the 17th and their first live performance via KBS Music Bank on the 26th!
