Kara Reveals that an Idol had the "Celebrity Disease"


Kara revealed that a currently active idol group member had the “celebrity disease” when that person was a trainee.

Kara was the guest of the week on the September 26 broadcast of KBS talk show “Hello.” In the talk show, celebrities come out to advise regular citizens on some of the problems that they face.

On the show, one male student revealed that his older sister had the “celebrity disease” which refers to actions and manners that seem to overstep the appropriateness of one’s actual level of publicity. The student described his sister as wearing sunglasses at night to go exercising and taking the taxi everywhere in case someone recognized her. The problem was that his sister was not actually a celebrity at all.

Kara members responded, “When we were trainees, there was another trainee who had the ‘celebrity disease’ even though it was before that person’s debut. That person was very conscious of other people and would wear makeup too.” They also revealed “That person is now a member of an idol group,” piquing the interest of the audience and viewers.

But it seems that it wasn’t just that one person. Kara’s Seung Yeon also revealed that there was both a female and a male who had the “celebrity disease.”

Since they have known the persons since trainee days at DSP, and also that they are in a “currently active idol group”, the culprits are likely to be members of Rainbow and SS501.

Who do you think it could be?
