Girlgroup KARA had their first live stage on a famous Japanese program for their Japanese debut.
KARA appeared on Nihon TV ‘Sukira – Mariwood’ on the morning of 11th August after releasing their debut Japanese single ‘Mister’. The ‘Mariwood’ corner on the show is said tobe a popular corner introducing some of the biggest stars like Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber etc.
The girls performed the song ‘Mister’. But the response for the girls’ live performance vocal capabilities is just lukewarm from TV viewers. Even though Han SeungYeon and Nicole did fine, the overall vocal performance of the group was said to be lacking.
The truth is that members like Goo Hara and Park GyuRi did well with their first verses, but it seems that the chorus part with ‘La la la~ la la la~’ had left the girls out of breath, which was quite a shame.
However, the KARA members’ special ‘butt dance’ and cute expressions, the girls did a pretty good performance overall. TV viewers also left comments online like “The members are cute and the idea of the butt dance is cute too”, “Even though the girls look good in their boyish image, I want to see them in lovely girlish concept” etc.
Meanwhile, the girls are said to be up #5 on Oricon daily chart with their Japanese debut album on 11th August. At the same time, the MV to the song ‘Mister’ is also up #1 on Japanese iTunes MV chart on 11th August at 9.30am.
