Kara Successfully Completes Japanese Fan Meeting
On June 24, Kara held a fan meeting, called “Kamilia School,” at the Yokohama Arena according to Enews24.
The fan meeting was held in two parts. Kara performed a total of six songs, including their Japanese debut song “Mister,” in front of a crowd of 24,000 people.
After the performance, Han Seung Yeon talked about the “Kara Crisis” back in 2011, when Kara went through a difficult time.
She said with tears, “[Mister] was a song that came out when we were at our weakest. After seeing all of you here today, I’m happy to know we have our fans.”
Goo Hara said, “No matter what happens in the future, please stay by Kara’s side,” before bursting into tears. The entire stage was in a “sea of tears.”
Kara is anticipating the new album, “Thank You Summer Love,” set to debut on July 24, and has an arena tour concert, “Kara Second Japan Tour 2013,” planned for October. The girls will tour seven cities starting October 8, beginning with Yokohama and including Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka, Fukui, and Kobe. An estimated 140,000 fans are expected to attend.
Kara’s first arena tour concert was in April 2012, and saw approximately 150,000 people in attendance over the six cities they visited. They even performed at the Tokyo Saitama Super Arena, where they received a warm welcome from fans. In January, Kara became the first Korean girl group to sell out their solo show at the Tokyo Dome.
