[Breaking] Nicole Will Leave Kara And Will Not Resign With DSP Media

Following rumours from earlier in the day that Kara might disband comes an official press release from DSP Media which states that Nicole has stated that she will not renew her contract and will let her contract naturally expire in January of next year. This means that Nicole will now be leaving the popular K-Pop idol group by that time. 

In a press release published by DSP Media (Their site is currently down due to high traffic), they have revealed that “Nicole has revealed that she has no intentions of renewing her contract and her contract will expire in January of next year as expected.” They have also revealed that “Kara’s Park Gyuri, Han Seung Yeon and Goo Hara have completed signing a 2 year renewal to their contract and have also confirmed that they continue their future activities with DSP.”

DSP Media however has revealed that “Because Kang Ji Young contract expires in April next year, she has decided to think over her future (Before deciding).” An exclusive report from news outlet OSEN however has shed a bit more light regarding her circumstances with the news outlet claiming that Kang Ji Young is leaning towards making a decision to go abroad to study. The report claims that while she isn’t outright saying that she wants to leave the group, she has however stated that she needs a certain amount of time to rest. The report states the she is thinking about studying abroad for one or two years while claiming that having made her debut at an early age and along with all the events that have occurred to Kara up till now has made her weary. OSEN claims that this statement has also been confirmed by a person close to Kang Ji Young who reiterated the fact that “It’s true that she is thinking about wanting a break. She is also looking through options for studying abroad. However, right now she needs to be working hard as Kara and so nothing has been decided yet.”

This person has also stated that, “This doesn’t mean she wants to leave the entertainment industry. There is still a lot of time left and I think they will be having a lot more discussions about this.”

Lastly DSP Media has stated that “Even if certain members within Kara do not renew their contract and decide to leave, the team will not be disbanded and we expect (the group) to devote themselves to continuing their activities domestically and abroad.”

ELF have been experience this before. It's bad, it's really bad but we have to think why they want to leave too. :( Maybe there's something happened and we don't know and she don't want to exposed it. :(

I'm not to surprised. She was one of three members that sued dsp in 2011 and hasn't appeared in nearly as many variety shows as the others. It's not as simple as 'changing your mind and singing'.
