Girl group Kara is getting ready for a comeback as four! On July 2, DSP Media trainee Heo Youngji was crowned the winner of the audition show “Kara Project” and became the fourth and final member of Kara. Following the withdrawal of members Nicole and Kang Ji Young in the beginning of this year, Kara put on the “Kara Project” in order to recruit one more member, and will be continuing as a four-member group. There will be no fifth member.
The group is currently preparing for a comeback in August. If everything goes as planned, this will be Kara’s first comeback in 11 months since last September’s “Full Bloom.” Kara had previously promoted a lot in Japan, but for their new comeback, they will be promoting in Korea. After promotions wrap up in Korea, the group will head to Japan for the start of a new tour.
It remains to be seen what kind of chemistry Youngji will show with the other Kara members, as well as how their stage presence and choreography will change, as they have gone from a five-member group to four.
