7 Trainees Compete to Join KARA — Who Will Make It?

Have you ever dreamed of becoming a K-pop idol? Watch reality show KARA Project and follow the seven trainees hoping to launch their music careers with popular girl group KARA.

The former five-member group recently lost two of its members, Nicole and Ji Young. That leaves Ha Ra, Gyu Ri and Seung Yeon with the challenge of picking one or more members to join them in the group.




KARA is known for its catchy songs and signature dance moves, including the “butt dance” from its popular song “Mister.” Their other hits include “Pandora,” “Step,” “Jumping” and “Lupin.” The group has had great success in Japan as well. You can learn more about KARA by watching its behind-the-scenes documentary “KARA Stargraphy.”
