Management company DSP Media released a statement regarding reports that Kara‘s Nicole will study abroad in the U.S.A starting February.
DSP Media stated that “We have not discussed Nicole’s plan to study abroad in February, so we don’t know the details of her plans. Nicole is still with us until January, and she will continue to perform all her normal duties until her contract expires.”
On October 20, the popular Japanese newspaper Sankei Sports reported that “Nicole might go study abroad in February. With the end of her contract with DSP Media, there is a high probability that Nicole will make a comeback as a solo artist.”
