Ex-KARA Member Nicole Jung Poised to Make Solo Comeback in October, Under Negotiations with B2M Entertainment
Those who missed Nicole Jung (formerly from KARA) will only have to wait a little more until they see the singer make her solo comeback this October.
According to several entertainment sources, Nicole will soon be making her solo debut under B2M Entertainment as previously speculated.
Currently, Nicole is said to be in the final stages of preparing for her solo comeback with her vocal and dance practice for her debut track almost done.
Nicole’s debut track is said to have a performance appeal that would dub her as “the second Lee Hyori.” As Nicole will be making her debut under B2M Entertainment which is represented by her former manager, many are expecting good results.
Under B2M Entertainment, insiders also foresee Nicole following the same career path as Lee Hyori who has also left her group Fin.K.L and consequently, DSP Media, after expressing her desire to be a solo artist.
Nicole has made her debut as a KARA member in 2007 and has decided not to renew her contract with DSP Entertainment in January 2014 and consequently left the group. Nicole then left for the US to take a break and undergo dance training.
Nicole will be joining other B2M Entertainment artists such as the pop diva Lee Hyori, SS501’s Heo Young Saeng and Kim Kyu Jong, girl group Spica, and Eric Nam.
