Kang Ji Young Opens Up About KARA Members Keeping In Touch And Staying Close Friends
Kang Ji Young shared that the members of KARA have never stopped maintaining a strong friendship over the years!
Since leaving KARA, Kang Ji Young has mostly focused on building an acting career in Japan. During an interview for her film “Killer, Her” (literal title) at the 22nd Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFAN), the former KARA member revealed how the members have stayed in touch. She said, “We all still get along very well and we still share a group chatroom. It’s been a while since we last met because we’re all so busy, but we’ve consistently stayed in contact with each other.”
When asked how the other members feel about Kang Ji Young making her mark as an actress in Japan, she replied, “They keep telling me how proud they are. Park Gyuri‘s nickname for me is ‘baby’ and she said, ‘Baby, you’re so amazing.’ It felt great hearing that from her.” She also shared how she meets up often with Goo Hara in Japan and added, “She’ll tell me what hotel she’s staying at and I’ll always go over there and hang out with her.”
Kang Ji Young has also been active as a solo singer, holding a concert last year. She said, “It taught me just how different it is to be on your own as opposed to being with the other members. I found it hard to be putting in so much energy by myself.” She revealed, “When I’m singing, it makes me miss the other members more.”
