Korean pop group KARA has released a new album, Step, on September 6. Check out the music video of its title track and also some concept photos…
STEP is KARA’s first original Korean album/single since Lupin in February 2010. The group’s Korean activity was halted for quite a while because of their (now resolved) contract dispute; they did well in Japan during the period though.
KARA became the first Korean girl group to top the authoritative Japanese Oricon single-album weekly sales chart with their latest single Jet Coaster Love, which sold over 120,000 copies in its debut week. The girls will donate their profit from this single-album to help the Tōhoku earthquake relieve effort.
Check out the concept pics and official teaser of Jet Coaster Love…

Decent song. Most of the participating pop groups show courtesy by sending their best vocalists, thus we are seeing some of the best young Korean idols here.
Korean pop group KARA has released a Japanese version of their hit song Mister…
The song was more known for its hip-swaying choreography than the music itself; and seems like the girls are going to hit that spot again in their Japanese venture.
The video managed to create plenty of hype among the non-Japanese fans as the group didn’t release a Korean MV for the song despite its popularity.
[Update] The single made it to the #5 spot on Oricon chart. Well done.
