With KARA’s comeback of only one week, they have been hit with 4 negative strikes. KARA came back on August 22 with their ‘PANDORA” showcase.
First, they were criticized for their ‘sexual’ outfits for their new song. The fans were also disappointed in KARA’s youngest member Kang Jiyoung for turning ‘sexy’. They had anticipated her usual cute image.
Their short pants and swimming suit tops with a revealing back have caused controversy with some believing that it was too much while some thought it was just enough skin.
Another strike was due to their silence when asked about Dokdo. Being a top girl group of Korea, many thought they would be able to express their opinions about Dokdo. However, they chose not to speak up about it, making people in Korea in a state of shock.
A third strike was hit when an online community board posted about their outfits being a copy of a famous fashion designers’ outfit. They believed that it was very similar to a designer brand collection from back in 2008.
Their last strike happened recently when their cars were seen parked at a handicap spot for about 15-20 minutes. With many younger fans looking up to them, this was an action that would not set a good role model for their younger viewers.
KARA who is known for being one of Korea’s top girl groups have disappointed many with these continuous strikes.
