Former KARA member Kang Ji Young has officially marked her new start as an actress in Japan by making her very first public appearance since leaving the girl group earlier this year in January.

On September 6, Kang Ji Young attended “The 19th Tokyo Girls Collection” (TGC) held at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan, and walked the runway as a model.

This runway stage received much interest, as it was the first event at which the public was able to catch a glimpse of Kang Ji Young following her exit from KARA.

On this day, she greeted her fans by saying, “Hello, everyone. This is Ji Young. I’m so happy to be able to stand in front of you all after such a long time. Has everyone been doing well? From now on, I would like to move forward and work hard as an actress without losing my roots. Please show support.”

Meanwhile, the former KARA member ended her contract with DSP Media and left for the UK in order to study language and acting. This past August, she made her plans to begin promotions as an actress known, by signing a contract with a Japanese entertainment agency, Sweet Power. Starting this October, Kang Ji Young will be acting as the lead female role in a new Japanese drama titled “Hell Teacher Nube.”
