KARA: The End of the Group
The sad news came from this group on January 15, 2016. DSP Media announced that Gyuri, Seungyeon, and Hara would depart from the group due to expiring contracts. But, the company stated that Youngji would continue her music career as a solo artist. Many people thought that the third generation of KARA was somehow a failure due to their reduced popularity after the first and second generation.
