YesAsia Editorial Description

Originally formed by Park Gyu Ri, Jung Nicole, Han Seung Yeon, and Kim Sung Hee, K-pop girl group Kara came to life in 2007. Promoted as the next Fin.K.L, things went well for the promising group from DSP Entertainment, but after the activities for their debut album Blooming were completed in October, vocalist Kim Sung Hee suddenly left the group. After a round of auditions, two new members - Go Ha Ra and Kang Ji Young - joined the band, turning the original quartet into a quintet. Now the group is finally ready to launch their highly anticipated follow-up mini album. The principal track on this five-track release is Rock U, a dance song that promises to push Kara's career to the next level.

여성 그룹 카라 (박규리, 한승연, 정니콜, 구하라, 간지영)가 새로운 모습으로 2008년 여름 가요계로 컴백한다.

지난해 10월 1집 활동 이후 팀의 보컬 김성희의 갑작스런 탈퇴소식이 전해지며 많은 팬들의 아쉬움을 샀던 여성그룹 카라가 새로운 멤버 2명을 보강해 기존 4명의 체제에서 5명으로 재정비하여 새롭게 돌아온다.

멤버 보강을 위해 가창력과 댄스 실력을 갖추고, 기존의 카라 이미지와 부합되는 멤버를 찾던 소속사 DSP Ent는 지난 3월 소속사 공식 홈페이지를 통해 오디션에 지원한 구하라(18세)를 새 멤버로 영입하게 되었으며, 구하라는 한때 온라인 쇼핑몰 모델로 활동한 경력 덕분에 다양한 표정연기와 귀여운 눈웃음이 매력적인 소녀이다. 기존 멤버 정니콜이 막내자리를 물려 준 강지영(15세)은 지인의 소개로 우연히 오디션을 보게 된 경우로 어린 나이만큼 깜찍하고 발랄한 아직은 순백색의 어린 소녀의 모습을 가득 지니고 있다.

7월 30일 발매 예정인 카라의 미니앨범은 총 5곡의 수록된 앨범으로, 타이틀곡 Rock U는 밝고 신나는 댄스곡으로 매력적인 비트를 지니고 있는 여흥구와 톡톡 튀는 심플한 멜로디의 반복이 주는 묘한 중독성을 가진 곡이다. 정니콜의 "Rock your body I say shake it shake it" 이라는 깜찍한 랩등이 2008년 무더운 여름에 상쾌한 청량제 같은 역활을 해줄것으로 기대되는 곡이다.

카라는 7월 24일 케이블 방송 엠카운트다운을 통해 공식적인 활동을 시작한 이후 7/25 kbs 뮤직뱅크, 7/26 mbc 음악중심, 7/27 sbs 인기가요등을 통해 본격적으로 지상파 활동을 시작한다.

Rock U Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10

Kara is simply the best in Kpop, 5 beautiful angels, cute and sexy! Every record they make becomes a huge success. From Gyuri,Seungyeon,Hara,Nicole and Jiyoung they made KARA a formidable group worthy of awards!

new image..but it works.. Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
if you in take into account the unexpected departure of sunghee..
then you would see how much seungyeon, and especially nicole and gyuri have improved..
in their previous album, Sunghee took over all the could barely hear the other girls..when it came to could hear that the other 3 could hold their own as well.. this album you could definately hear the improvements of the 3 members..
honestly..i still think the nicole, gyuri, and seungyeon have the best vocals group wise..
their voices blend together very nicely :)
the new members lack in vocals hence the one liners they get..

their songs were a shock to KARA fans especially b/c we were left in the dark..but I got used to it
and this mini album is cleary just for the summer..
looking forward to even better improvements from all of them.. :D
KARA fighting!!!

great purchase Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
the songs in this mini album are definitely a little catchier than their first, although not vocally the best that they can do
the songs are mostly bubbly and cute
Rock U is very catchy although at the first listen it will be quite awkward to experience the HUGE change in their concept, but before u even know it you'll be humming Rock U Body Say in your head
im glad they added a ballad track to this album, Wait. its a really good ballad, you can hear nicole's improved vocals and her rap in the other 4 songs are getting so much better now
we'll have to wait for their next release, for a stronger song vocally
and i wouldnt mind if sunghee comes back (;
this album booklet is glossy and the pictures are beautiful
although im truly disappointed in the cd design. its totally Plain. totally different from the beautiful cd design of their first album

cute comeback Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
When I heard Sunghee left Kara, I was devastated because she was the most talented member of the group and definitely my favorite. But Kara has come back with 2 new members, still I can't say they make up for Sunghee. I'm not really hearing any of their vocal abilities. Their new songs are good, but a little too much cutesy stuff. They should really try to display some strong vocals in their songs, even the Wondergirls show some strong vocals. If they wanna get farther with their career, showing some strong is definitely needed. But still their new mini album is pretty catchy, and it does have nice tunes. My favorite song is definitely Good Day.

Great mini album Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I was sooo excited for KARA's comeback. Even though they lost Sunghee who had a lot of potential when it came to her voice, the two new members definitely make up for it. Rock U is a very upbeat and cheery song, but at first the song may seem messy. Definitely listen to it more than once because it will grow on you. The 4 other songs are equally as catchy. My favorite song is Good Day :)
I just wish they would include a DVD that had the MV and Making of the MV on it <3
