  • Marife Neneng Rafael Ballao

    I prefer you watch roommate 2 it will make you likes her.She is a simple and funny person


    Sunghee was never a lead vocalist in KARA. She was Main Vocalist. She had the hardest, longest, highest parts in KARA’s old songs. Also, Youngji, a main dancer ? Interesting. Hara is a better dancer than her. I guess they just want to give her the positions that belonged to Nicole no matter the talent.


    Are you the rumor starter ? Lol everyone knows Hara is a better dancer than Youngji. In there KARASIA tour, Hara took lead the break dances and solo dances alongside Seungyeon.

  • weyoung

    what are you talking about? do you try to confuse things??
    Seungyeon was the Main Vocalist not Sunghee!

  • Kamiliahk5

    He did not confuse you.Originally Seunghee was the main vocalist but she left the group.

  • Kamiliahk5
