KARA "calmly accept" Youngji as their new member


Article: Gyuri, Seungyeon, and Hara "Calmly accepted" the addition of new member Youngji

Source:
News 24 via Naver

DSP rep, "The three members of KARA saw the results of the audition and calmly accepted it. The three know that now is more important than ever. They are doing all they can to embrace Youngji and make sure that their new album is to the best of their ability. Please look after them."

1. [+14,406, -191] "Calmly accepted"...? It almost sounds like they're not liking it but they have to accept it since they have no toher choice.. Right..?

2. [+11,692, -341] Of course they have to accept her, she's their new main vocal.

3. [+4,857, -173] Hopeless!~~~~~

4. [+3,676, -213] There are... no comments... ㅋㅋ

5. [+921, -40] Am I the only one who feels like they didn't really want to accept her but had to..

6. [+892, -44] So she's nothing more to them than a rock that happened to roll in?

7. [+897, -53] I doubt they'd like a random girl getting a free ride when their relationship with one another isn't all that great either ㅋㅋ Just disband and make a new group

8. [+863, -36] The "calmly accepted" sounds rather scary

Article: Why did KARA give up being a 5 member group for 4?

Source:
Sports Chosun via Naver

1. [+4,690, -224] KARA's no longer at the height of their fame. Nowadays, they'd be pushed aside by SISTAR and f(x).

2. [+3,729, -201] If only they didn't act that way on 'Radio Star', I doubt the reactions would be the way they are now. KARA's in a difficult position where they can barely make it into the top girl groups now..

3. [+2,280, -72] Didn't they start off as four members anyway?

4. [+1,645, -157] Who knows

5. [+392, -32] Already had a feeling they had discord when they lived in the same house and yet hid pizzas and used separate rice cookers ㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+311, -26] DSP sucks at managing. If you look at A-JAX and Rainbow, the members individually have a lot of potential but no leadership or main vocalist/dancer and they're all stuck doing boring dances and songs.

7. [+270, -9] KARA's height of fame was 09~11... Back when it was all about Soshi, Wonder Girls, and KARA... Time flies so fast now.

8. [+230, -30] People don't care anymore about KARA so stop releasing articles

  4. "If you look at A-JAX and Rainbow, the members individually have a lot of potential but no leadership or main vocalist/dancer."


    But that isn't true, A-Jax and Rainbow both have leaders and main vocals. The problem is DSP has no idea how to promote them properly and create hype and buzz, not this fictional problem you've just made up.

  5. First reaction to the tittle:


    Ice Ice Baby? O.o

    ReplyDelete
  6. dunno but I wouldn't want to become a member of Kara tbh

    ReplyDelete
  7. 1. [+176, -33] If she had left Tiny G and went solo into acting, I feel like she could've done so well but she's staying with the group... Disappointing.

    it's called loyalty ya know.

    ReplyDelete
  8. "Calmly accepted" it's not like they could do anything else is there? They should have just carried on as 3 tbh.

    ReplyDelete
  9. lol @ 'calmly accept'. what else were they going to do ?

  12. "calmly accepted" sounds weird. hope they embrace her and don't end up bullying her or ostracizing her in any way, she's probably their only hope now.

  13. i wonder if she is that great to beat seungyeon and a vocalist

    ReplyDelete
  21. calmly accepted does sound creepy lmao:::

    8. [+230, -30] People don't care anymore about KARA so stop releasing articles



    seeing the amount of upvotes; obviously people still care to click and see what the article is about lol, weither it was for affection or hate.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think I'm the only person who thinks J-Min is far prettier than her...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Well they have no choise but to accept what their shitty company do

    ReplyDelete
  24. those 14k upvotes tho...

    ReplyDelete
  25. They don't lol. It's a bandwagon

    ReplyDelete
  26. 160 isn't that short it's rather average, especially since they wear heels often. 150 is a midget lol she can't wear killer heels all the time (most actors are like 180cm+ too so that'd be really awkward to look at.

    ReplyDelete
  27. if it makes any difference, i think your height is really cool. being tall has a lot of advantages

    ReplyDelete
  28. I vote to create a new group with baby kara members

    exactly what I wanna write before saw the comment. They started as 4, so why not?
    hope the best for them!!

  31. But rember that they don't care tho.

  32. next articles gonna be about another bullying case, great. Group additions to established bands usually never work i wonder when they're going to learn this...

  33. Is the rice cooker story true? That's such a waste of rice cookers though..

    Anyway their album is a
    Japanese album right? Wonder when are they gonna schedule a Korean comeback hmmm

    It can never be any truer.

    The words they used though... "calmly accepted". Can I highlight how this phrase was stressed to give a vibe of they have no choice but to accept her? Poor her :( good luck Youngji!

    ReplyDelete
  35. But from what I've heard she ain't good in singing, wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  36. i actually feel bad for youngji... well whoever was chosen, i d feel bad. baby kara as 7 seems to fit well together. taking youngji out from them feels.. weird? youngji seems to be the type who is quiet and 'weak' so im a bit worried abt her... i d rather her to stay w baby kara...

    Lol way to go DSP for making the girls sound less accepting of what happened by stating they "calmly accepted" her.

    ReplyDelete
  38. 6. [+892, -44] So she's nothing more to them than a rock that happened to roll in?



    Unfortunately for the girl, yes. That's all she is. KARA is already very bonded as a group since they've been together for quite a long time. Other than two of their members leaving them in the cold, now they have to deal with a 95'er who's also their new main vocal.
    It's not a good idea but Youngji worked hard and it's time to earn some money. The other three are still money-hungry it seems. That or they still want to be ''idolised'' and ''adored''

    ReplyDelete
  39. Why did the add a new member?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Not about acting but eat her about how awkward the visuals would be. Everyone would just tower over her and she might end up looking like a kid when she's supposed to play an adult lol.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Gyuri has that great head on her shoulder. always been my favorite member out of 5. her attitude is awesome. she has my plus score because she's the leader and not leaving them behind when her group hit the bottom.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I wouldn't be surprised if they secretly didn't like her. If they watched the program then they probably like her the least since she missed 2 missions right off the bat.

  64. Not a major fan of KARA or TARA, but both groups have worked really hard. Girls are pretty, their dance are interesting and their songs are pretty good. I don't get why ppl are constantly dissing them - practically picking on every little teeny bits >.<

  66. I think calmy accepted is to make people not believe that old members are going to bully baby kara

    ReplyDelete
  67. Youngji is basically getting a free ride. Even if Kara isn't as popular as they was before, they still have the Kara as a brand name which means when they perform at events and stuff, they still get paid a lot compared to most rookie groups, especially if they perform in Japan which means Youngji will be getting a somewhat stable paycheck. Most rookie groups' paychecks are unstable and won't be much while Youngji can start getting a big paycheck alreadyy just by promoting with Kara as a whole. That's the main reason why I don't like the addition. Sure Kara might've added new members before but that was before they were popular and known. The girls worked hard to make Kara a name that people know (even though their popularity has fallen right now) while Youngji can just walk in.

    ReplyDelete

  74. Jiyoung was a subvocal and apparently subrapper, she had a nice little voice tho. Not all that great, but nice.

    ReplyDelete
  75. They do care but it's not like they pay attention to them in a good way, if they're not supporting i bet Kara would like them to "care" like this

    ReplyDelete
  76. THEY VOTED FOR HER, so yeah they accepted. She got the second highest vote based on experts + KARA votes, so if you don't know anything, shut up. Besides, those who don't even know KARA, can step aside already instead of spreading false things ^^

    ReplyDelete
  81. That doesn't exactly mean they wanted this, that's what the comments are saying.

  82. maybe dps wants her to get recognition and then put her in baby kara ??

  83. Youngji is great, but you seriously underestimate too much Gyuri's and Seungyeon's singing skills. Like.

  84. "Her 150 cm height is a handicap as an actor since she needs to be able to express a lot of different characters."


    since when does your height impair your acting ability? This netizen makes it sound like taller actors have some amazing ability to fluctuate in height in order to express a different character :/

    ReplyDelete
  85. lol, KARA voted along with experts, so, yeah :D

    ReplyDelete
  86. I see Young Ji's addition to Kara as a real last-ditch attempt by DSP to squeeze as much out of Kara before they release a new girl group (yea, unbelievable eh?).

    So Jin seemed like the most appropriate and definitely comprehensible addition; age-wise as well as experience-wise BUT she's already the natural leader of Baby Kara. Nobody creates a reality show featuring trainees with no intention of debuting them. If a new group comes underway, rest assured it's going to include a majority of Baby Kara with So Jin as leader. So Min needs to be in a new group. DSP knows she's good and putting her in Kara would be a clear waste if this attempt at re-Kara-ing fails.

    Young Ji is young, popular (clearly, look at them votes) as well as decently talented. It's difficult to say if there's going to be any discord but the three current members are entitled to be displeased. I sincerely hope that Young Ji finds her place in Kara and they release better songs.

  88. kpop nowadays is not like the kpop i knew back then!! from 2006 to 2010 2011!!i remeber how much i laughed watching varieties show actually it was really good years bt now it's all scandals and so on!! are they finally tired?

    ReplyDelete
  89. Yeah, but Dohee is really short (as is the rest of Tiny-G). 150 cm is much smaller than 160cm. They can wear heels, but still won't be that tall.

    ReplyDelete
  90. KARA is not like that, they're really caring and they will.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Sounds like they don't like it but is trying to be professional of the situation

    ReplyDelete
  92. lol, you don't know KARA at all so.

    ReplyDelete
  93. they chose her -.- if you don't know anything at all, don't say it.

    ReplyDelete
  94. KARA + experts voted her, so yeah.

    ReplyDelete
  95. They did a house tour of their dorm and one girl (seungyeon? nicole?) kept a rice cooker in her bedroom while the others used a common one in the kitchen. She had her own stash of food kept in her drawers mixed in with her clothes too. It made her look really petty especially considering how music labels usually provide idols with meals or ahjummas are hired to clean the dorms as well as keep their fridge stocked with groceries and various side dishes. They must have had a bad fight to over food and common things in the past.

    ReplyDelete
  96. 6. [+311, -26] DSP sucks at managing. If you look at A-JAX and Rainbow, the members individually have a lot of potential but no leadership or main vocalist/dancer and they're all stuck doing boring dances and songs.

  99. Wait.... So many comments about how no one cares about KARA yet the top comment has like over 10k likes. So clearly people still care about them... a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Honestly I'm not a fans but I really hope they can get back to at least a good name in the kpop industry, this whole situation is really sad :(

    ReplyDelete
  101. but that doesnt make sense if people leave groups to go solo people start calling them selfish and they're saying they're disappointed? i meannn

    ReplyDelete
  102. Idk, but can DSP please stop sitting on A-Jax. They're so behind all the other rookies who debuted around the same time and it's just ugh.

    ReplyDelete
  103. with "calmly accepted" they refferred to Youngji entering KARA, not the KARA Project in general.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  105. How would you feel.. for 7 or 8 years you train and work your ass off to accomplish what these girls have just so your boss can insert some random girl into the group you shed blood, sweat and tears for?


    Imagine your workplace. You work hard as fk for 8 years and finally get the promotion you deserve. Then one day, some new girl comes in and gets promoted right on the spot. I guess you would "calmly accept" it too.

  110. How cruel. They just expected her to abandon the group. I feel like they would think the same with every good idol actor/actress who isn't from a big name group.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Didn't they give full marks to So Min first? Seems like KARA + the experts preferred So Min first.

    Just saying.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Ha...ha ha...

    ReplyDelete
  113. I think the decision was already made beforehand and Youngji was maybe informed that she was would be picked? Or maybe it's just my twisted mind thinking that way...

    Let's hope they will do well..

    ReplyDelete
  121. I think the net means that regarding to casting...It's not about ther acting abilities vs taller people acting skills, it's about casting directors will always cast people that are tall or more average in height. And think about it, how many times do you see an actor/actress that short on TV? It's rare, lemme tell you.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Well,when you're acting as a runway model......um...uh....okay, that's the only role I could think of that an actress needs to be tall

    ReplyDelete
  123. No, it's just that the majority of actress are over 165cm tall and actors are over 175cm talll. So, it is harder to shoot her because of the camera angles (even with heels). Also, her baby face + her height won't help her land more mature roles either, because she would look too young for the role (I know she's only 19, but as she get older), hence she's stuck playing more a teenager type of role.

  127. the height thing is a problem because they can look awkward onscreen. When song hye kyo and jo in sung acted in that winter, shk had to stand on a box so the scene didn't look awkward.

  130. They encourage Dohee to leave group for acting, but who wants to bet that she would receive tons of hate if she really did so?

  131. If she had left her group because she found solo success they'd hate on her for being disloyal and not thinking of her members. Hopefully the group can gain success now that she's got some public recognition.
