Former KARA member Nicole is simultaneously preparing for comebacks in Japan and Korea.
According to a report from February 8, Nicole will release her second single, “DON’T STOP,” in Japan on February 17, and follow up with promotions. “DON’T STOP” is a bright dance song with lyrics that send a message to someone who can’t speak their mind. She will be making a comeback after eight months, as her first Japanese debut solo album was released last June.
Afterwards, in March, Nicole will be making a comeback in Korea with a mini album. Following her first solo mini album, “First Romance,” which was released November 2014, she will be meeting her fans again after a year and four months.
While she did not have any domestic (Korean) promotions last year, Nicole is already garnering attention for planning on promotions in both Japan and Korea early on in the new year.
Nicole debuted in 2007 as one of the original members of KARA, and left the group January 2014. Following, she took dance lessons in New York in order to prepare for her solo debut, and made a comeback as a solo artist under B2M Entertainment.
Last June, Nicole also made it into number 10 on the Oricon charts with her Japanese solo album, as well as the number one spot on the Tower Records’s K-pop charts, showing the potential she has as a solo artist.
