Later, Han Seungyeon debuted with KARA on March 29, 2007, as the main vocalist along with the leader of the group Park Gyuri. KARA was insanely popular with their hit songs such as “Mister”, “Jumping”, “Lupin”, and “Step” in South Korea and Japan. During her career in KARA, Han Seungyeon actively participated in a personal schedule, such as being the host of music shows, becoming a member on variety shows, and being featured in other artists’ songs.
