KPOP Female Group Profile of Kara Members (Facts, Age, Height, Weight, and Positions)


Who is KARA, and when did they debut?

KARA is a girl group under DSP Entertainment that debuted in 2007 with a four-member formation, including Nicole, Gyuri, Sunghee, and Seungyeon. KARA often made changes in their line-up from the time they debuted until they disbanded. Previously, Seunghee became a permanent KARA member during the debut but then decided to leave KARA because she did not pass a college test and felt she could not manage her time between being an idol and being a student.

Then, DSP Entertainment decided to make an audition program to add KARA members: Hara and Jiyoung are the members who passed the audition. From 2008 to 2014, KARA members continued their career in a five-member line-up. However, in 2014 KARA had to lose two of its members, Nicole and Jiyoung, for not renewing their contract with DSP Entertainment. After that, Youngji became the last member to join KARA. In January 2016, DSP Entertainment confirmed that KARA had broken up.
