  9. Same. Same with Sohee from Wonder Girls. Not all singers need to sound like Solji from EXID or Taeyeon or Ailee. I appreciate diversity.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hara and Nicole are the best.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I hate commentators like the second person. I mean, they aren't the most powerful of vocalist, but they're vocals have really improves a lot. It's just another netizen who thinks they are some vocal expert

    ReplyDelete
  12. TBH they are not THAT skilled, but their songs are catchy and they are so cute. I like them.

    ReplyDelete
  13. what? the group that sells over a million copies of each of their singles is a nugu? compared to a group that doesnt even sell over 200,000?

    ReplyDelete
  14. it makes me happy when a nice comment slips into the top 3. who cares if they aren't the best singers? they are entertainers and they entertain their fans

    ReplyDelete
  15. LOL are you just looking for down votes? Because that's not even trolling, more like embarrassing.

    ReplyDelete
  16. who cares if she can't sing?! Cute and Catchy KARA songs are the best

    ReplyDelete
  17. more groups without good singers and good dancer eh?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Kara got their Tokyo Dome concert even faster than TVXQ hahaha
    Amazing~

    1. If it werent for tvxq..kara wouldnt have made it to dome..

      Delete
  19. That's why they're called idol group. Each person have their part. If Hara sound like Ailee she would have go solo instead

    ReplyDelete
  20. ikr? DBSK weren't as popular as Kara in Japan. their number sales tells everything.

  21. Why don’t
    we talk when KARA loses 3 members and still is able to hold a Dome Tour with
    only 2 of them

    ReplyDelete
  22. this so fucking much.


    Badass and cool songs are overrated as hell, cute is the real thing.

    ReplyDelete
  23. so? All the Kara girls are pretty & adorable :P
    best girl group of the decade, to be honest.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Fat bitches except Goo Hara! <3

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love Kara but I'm not going to lie, as an AKB48 fan, AKB48 started out with only 7 paying audience at their first show in a 256 seats theater. The girls who were 14, 15 yrs old at the time, were passing out free tickets and flyers on the street just to get more fans. They waited 7 yrs to get to Tokyo Dome, when they were already selling millions by their 5th yrs. That's why when I saw their promo vid for TD, a dream of only 1830 meters away, I was happy for them.
    There's no prestige in Tokyo Dome anymore, people can just get there by paying for the spot

    I'm glad that Kara got enough fans to fill up the stadium but I wish they wait just a little longer and break more records :(
    IDK I have real mix feelings about this....not hating on Kara in anyway....I know they worked hard but..yeah...

    ReplyDelete
  26. only insecure fans talk about other groups to make their bias look "better" in their bias articles

    ReplyDelete
  27. You know AKB girls and Kara are friends right?

    Nicole comforted Acchan when she has her first solo appearance on a music show. They even hold hands and they took pictures together. Acchan is following Nicole on Twitter too.

    And I've been in Japan. You can't walk 5 min in the street, especially in Shibuya without running into some AKB endorsed products or posters. If AKB are nugus group then IDK what would you consider a popular group

    Also AKB already has their Tokyo Dome concert and there were over 900,000 applications for tickets.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Even some AKB48 girls can sing better than Kara.

    ReplyDelete
  29. KARA >>>>>>> DB5K
    general public loves them

    ReplyDelete
  30. I didn't know there was such a thing as fake music...

    ReplyDelete
  31. lol netizens can hate but while they're killing themselves for a job that pays $4.50 an hour, gooey is counting her cash in benz. HAHA!

    ReplyDelete
  32. What?! LMAO
    sorry but ALL 48 girls of AKB are talentess, Hara alone is more beautiful, funny and talented than all of them.

    ReplyDelete
  33. http://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=9cpc5-AQRdA
    14 yrs old is better than your hara unnie~
    Also Sayaka is <3

  34. I don't really get what's so special with them...........
    oh well.. Congrats lol

    ReplyDelete
  35. its amazing how far they've gotten with no standout vocal ability. there was sunghee but she left.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Akb48 is only popular because they love to show their ass and tits; at least Kara members are funny.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Sound legit

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUJvtzBO1Uo

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIdWXhV33vs



    Tho then SDN48 would be selling millions since they're way more sexual...oh wait..they disbanded...:|

    ReplyDelete
  38. Nugu? You're talking about the same group that sells millions of albums in a day.

    ReplyDelete
  39. It doesnt take a vocal expert to judge Hara's horrible singing.

    The fact that she is been in this industry for 4 yrs and still sucks at live singing is just sad and she calls herself a singer.

    ReplyDelete
  40. well I mean, what we are hearing isn't an illusion is it? Or is it...

    ReplyDelete
  41. Lol of course AKB48 is a nugu group exactly the reason they made 262 million dollars last yr. Thats more than all the top acts KPOP acts combined. Thats more that YG the RICHEST celebrity stock holder. Thats more than what Kara has made since their debut combined. And they also have sold more with one single last year than the top 20 kpop album last year combined



    Yes if that nugu group I would love to know who a popular group is.

    ReplyDelete
  42. fugly girls like you don't understand with is cute and beauty.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm proud of KARA no matter what others say
    Heard their solo stages yesterday were awesome...<3

    ReplyDelete
  44. lol did I ever say they are not pretty or cute? we have different preferences.

    ReplyDelete
  45. eh no. have you seen her solo performance from KARASIA or KARA's latest performances. The other members are still way better than her but no she doesn;t "suck at live singing" anymore. She has definitely improved

    ReplyDelete
  46. KARA's already so successful that it doesn't even matter what a few thousands say but you guys only less than 100 people with opinions.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm asking because I'm genuinely curious... do you lurk netizenbuzz just to post AKB propaganda whenever someone happens to bring them up, or do you actually care about Kpop? I've seen you do this at least two other times now. If you're so into them, stay in Tokyohive? Lol

    ReplyDelete
  48. Honestly KARA is overrated. they are popular just because the girls are kawaii ¬___¬

    ReplyDelete
  49. well when idols or anybody presents at any venue they need to pay, i think the achivement or prestige comes when that person, in this case KARA can sold out the entire venue
    didn't knew about AKB48 girls since i dont follow Jpop but hey KARA laso struggled a lot to get a spot in Korea also worked sooo damn hard to be acknowledge in japan and finally all efforts payed of, specially since KARA along with SNSD r one of the most hated groups, yes SNSD has tons of lover in korea compared to KARA who has more hater than lovers

    ReplyDelete
  50. i did an ironic comment btw i don't have anything against kara lol

    ReplyDelete
  51. well welcome to the idol world there r tons of idols who have been in the industry for more than 4 years and still suck at singing however everyone .. well more like some in idols groups play an important role, HARA is the image and she sells well so yeah

    ReplyDelete
  52. whenever akb comes up it's so hilarious. as if they have any talent. even their face left them, good for her! leave before they make more extreme yuri cm's.

    and idols are idols for a reason, singing isnt the only thing that brings them to success. kara isn't a vocal group, but they have other traits that can fill the tokyo dome.

    BUT it's okay, the top comments can be +2,000,000 but kara girls are banking while ppl can go cry about something not their business.

    ReplyDelete
  53. no matter what Knetizens think KARA made history and even when im not a kamillia i respect them soo much everyone who is into DSP fandoms know what kind of crap DSP artist go through so im proud of them

    ReplyDelete
  54. mao? well LMAO at your comment

    ReplyDelete
  55. kpop agency like 2 jump on d bandwagon...like for example one group example snsd make gee song(pls dont bash me sones just using it as an example)n it a hook song n bang become one of d biggest kpop song...then all korean agency start 2 make a hook song n cute concept...n of course overused it 2 much...n when kpop idol make a big break in japan market(kara,snsd) all korean agency start sending their group 2 japan....n believe me if tokyo dome capacity is not that big (50k-55k) all korean agency would already sent their half ass group 2 hold a concert there n be like hey we made it...lolx...but d sad thing is they cant...so only kpop idol that really have a big fan base can hold a concert in tokyo dome..n i know u r kara fan..so u should put ur self in their shoes n understand y they cry..it bcause kara also has a hard up n down career..so u should def feel proud of them.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. of course, akb48 lives off their delusional fans who bulk buy.....for what? they better keep it up with the bikini's and lingerie. when they graduate they turn into porn stars anyways, so it's good practice. But hey, they beat kara in sales by doing that! parents must be proud.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Oh I like After School, KARA, Girl's Day and Block B :P
    I was a kpop fan before I became a Jpop fan


    It doesn't hurt to pimp out my babies when they're so misunderstood T^T

    ReplyDelete
  58. they did a great job, their tears were probably bc this is a achievement they've been wanting, KARA HWAITING~

    ReplyDelete
  59. reading the AKB history, Kara in Tokyo Dome looks like a joke.

    ReplyDelete
  60. LOL It doesnt matter what they do or how the make the money at the end of the day AKB48 makes a shit load of money and is extremely popular and sells well.


    I mean Kara shakes their butt, wears hots pants, lingerie like outfits for pandora, expose their back its the same.



    At the end of the day their all just selling their face and bodies.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I do think J-idols, at least for female groups, have it harder than K-idols since alot aren't debuted by big companies and get put on shows right away, but start out as indie groups and perform in the street....but IDK if you should put it that harshly tho...............:\

    ReplyDelete
  62. She may have improved but nothing drastic like jaw dropping.

    When she improves like lets say Taemin I'll acknowledge her as a singer.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Honestly, the pople who claim that you know exactly how nobody in KARA can sing (not even Seungyeon?) - when did you listen to them last time? 2009? It was eons ago.

    ReplyDelete
  64. which general public?!

    ReplyDelete
  65. my god..im praising kara n got thumb down...Zzzzz ><

    ReplyDelete
  66. Yes because there's no way that Kara fans bulk buy either. Oh please bikinis and lingerie, they do one bikini PV a year and I can tell you've only ever seen Heavy Rotation. Don't know why you're bitching but you need to deal with it.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Fucking true. Everyone just love to hop on the bandwagon without even bother to see how amazing they are this year

    ReplyDelete
  68. lol at the hypocrisy
    said akb48 are sluts while hara did that slutty chumchurum cf that's so slutty that it had been taken down HAHAHAHA

    ReplyDelete
  69. electric boy flopped
    soon kpop will fade in japan
    God knows what will happen to kara
    rip

    ReplyDelete
  70. Well.. I think their music is nice.. but that comment #2 though.. xD

    ReplyDelete
  71. you do realize that tvxq had to work from the bottom up while kara used the hallyu wave to their advantage?

    ReplyDelete
  72. The KARASIA concert just in korea and japan right? I thought they said they gonna tour to singapore and other asia countries hence the name KARASIA.... what happened? anyone knows?

    ReplyDelete
  73. Oh please, diversity? This isn't the sort of diversity anyone wants when it comes to singers. But since these are idols, not singers, that's ok. Just don't pretend to yourself that there's anything GOOD about how most idols sing.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Haha, delusional K-pop fans like you are so pathetic. Kara can't even come close to AKB48 when it comes to sales and popularity.

    ReplyDelete
  75. wrong, i have seen that pony shu shu(whatever the name is) pv. i remember going to check out akb for the first time and the first scene i see is a girl taking her clothes off. only song i truely liked from them was beginner, maybe.

    ill apologize for coming off bitchy. an earlier comment from an akb fan pissed me off.

    but, akb's history of working hard does not pull any heartstrings. because they could've worked smart instead of hard. now, they can release crap and still sell.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Speak for yourself. There are many genres of music that don't require singers to be technically good. There are lots of lead singers of famous bands who can barely keep pitch. I like their voices and it has nothing to do with their looks. Just because you might be shallow doesn't mean everyone is. Maybe you should accept that your definition of a good or worthwhile singer isn't law.

    ReplyDelete
  77. but imo kara carries way more morals.

    lingerie-like >>> actual lingerie
    hot pants >>> bikinis
    exposes the top 3/4 of their back >>> exposes 3/4 of their body

    kara contributes in picking their concepts while akb surprisingly have no problem filming an mv like heavy rotation. not saying kara are angels.

    at the end of the day, id rather my idols not be a billion plus members who make money off what i mentioned above but a 5 member girl group who are cute, but not elementary cute, funny, have good songs, each member has something to contribute and make good money that way.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Lol-ing at the backhanded compliments.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Wroooonnngggg. Neither Kara nor SNSD have surpassed DB5K's achievements in Japan yet. Here are some numbers. In 2010, DB5K had the second highest DVD+CD sales in Japan.
    #1 - Arashi
    #2 - DB5K - ¥9,411,500,000 (112 million USD)
    source: AKP: "TVXQ #2 in overall Japanese sales despite controversy and non promotions."

    What was Kara's highest position? What was Kara's highest yearly DVD+CD sales? Well, I know Kara ranked #18 on Oricon's 2012 yearly chart. And in 2011, Kara made $63 million. Here's some simple math for you: $112 million >>>> $63 million. I don't know 2VXQ's sales numbers, but they're really, really high as well. And 2VXQ has sold way more concert tickets than Kara.

    ReplyDelete
  80. DB5K (2010 Japan sales: $112 million) >>>>>> Kara (2011 Japan sales: $63 million)

    ReplyDelete
  81. I love KARA, but these tears are obviously staged.

    ReplyDelete
  82. LOL LOL KARA >>>>>> DBSK IN 2012 JUST LOOK ORICHON CHART and SUJU>>>>>>DBSK IN ORICHON i'm sorry

    ReplyDelete
  83. ERRR IT'S 2012 DUMBASS Kara MUCH BETTER

    ReplyDelete
  84. Solji is the hottest, sexiest, prettiest and one of the strongest vocals in Kpop scene.

    Unfair for these girls to compare them with Solji since regardless of the popularity she can eat 98% of the female artists in kpop in every department.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Kara is no longer selling good.


    Their latest album is badly flopped for their annoying fans who were eagerly awaiting some crushing album sales to bring down their number 1 competitor and other artists promoting in Japan while bragging about KARA's awesomeness down our throats.

    EXID... my babies ;)

    ReplyDelete
  87. I don't really care about hateful comments or even too biaseds comments in this page, and comparisons with TVXQ or AKB is also irrelevant to me but I want to leave my thoughts.
    There were around 50,000 people in Tokyo Dome's audience to see KARA (and thousands of people in theaters around Japan) and just because around 700 korean netizens in this article "don't approve" KARA's skills or "don't think Hara can sing" won't be annoying me. Kamilia knows KARA's history, and after countless factors, to us KARA is the best. As a Kamilia and a Hara-stan, I'm really glad my girls could archieve this, none can take this from them, they made it happen. They've worked really hard and they're talent. And yes, I love Hara's refreshing voice and that's all that matters. I don't need anyone's permission to love it. Plus she isn't as bad as those people think she is, at least she can hold a tune. Not the best, but surely someone I want to listen to more and more. 2013 started beautifully for KARA and I'm so proud of them♥

    ReplyDelete
  88. I'm sorry for trolls, I just love KARA for who they are...doesn't matter what their weakness is...everyone has it

    ReplyDelete
  89. LOL comment no.2 XD netizen can be so "funny" sometimes... kkk

    ReplyDelete
  90. LMAO dont you know the reason WHY!!?? if yes then you must be new to kpop.. XD
    Kara was riding Hallyu Wave fame when they're coming to Japan as KPOP group, but TVXQ5 debuted in Japan not as kpop group but J-POP! this is why people in Japan didnt even have interest about them at first, but Kara with Kpop tag with them and during the time when Hallyu was so popular in Japan of course they can to this!
    Get you fact straight before commenting!

    ReplyDelete
  91. She really has it all. I'm so glad she re-debuted with EXID. Even though she's obviously good enough to be a soloist I like them all together. I hope she goes on one of those Immortal Song type shows and that they get popular this year.

    ReplyDelete
  92. this is too.... LOL
    i dunno about TVXQ2 achievement in Japan (but i'm sure they are silling HIGH in Japan like HIGHHHH!!)
    but as far as I know there's still no Kpop group that can break TVXQ5 records in Japan. if talking about popularity and you said Kara more popular than TVXQ then you WRONG! XD

    ReplyDelete
  93. not touching the AKB comment but just saying, Kara became extremely popular both in Korea and Japan by rotating their butts......

    ReplyDelete
  94. damn haters....i'm happy for kara...they've worked hard and deserve their success

    ReplyDelete
  95. Mao is a beautiful name. Don't you dare

    ReplyDelete
  96. TVXQ2 is actually doing better than TVXQ5 actually, better, sales, bigger concerts and even their fanclub have more members now.

    ReplyDelete
  97. She can definitely increase her popularity and i hope EXID keeps gaining popularity until they hit it big.

    Solji definitely has it all <3 <3

    ReplyDelete
  98. I remember now, Kara got popular because of the Butt - dance in their Mister promos.


    When a group don't have talented members the stans say: "I like them because they are cute and the songs are catchy"
    PATHETIC.

    ReplyDelete
  99. just curious, but how about the ticket sales?

    ReplyDelete
  100. cute is all that matters right?

    ReplyDelete
  101. KARA album last year sold a million copies, TVXQ never did that.

    ReplyDelete
  102. only delusional fans think Kara is the best.. especially the best in what?

    ReplyDelete
  103. This mediocre girl group is doing better than Tohoshinki in Japan.

    >__>

    ReplyDelete
  104. That wasn't good at all, any random Kara member can sing better than that shit.

    ReplyDelete
  105. That is a girl group you like. And I am not saying anything about that. Cause you can like whoever you want.



    I am just saying that AKB48 sells really well and makes money doing whatever it is they do. And its a fact that they are wayyyyyyy more popular than Kara in Japan.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Oh please AKB48 is jpop trash..... Lol why do people even stan those talentless bitches..

    ReplyDelete
  107. You stan shitty jpop.. You should listen to good japanese music.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Now, is this coming from someone who is actually familiar with AKB48's music or did you just watch one Youtube video of theirs?


    AKB48 caters quite a bit to the otaku crowd but don't even think for a second that KARA doesn't either, honey.


    If you're going to form an opinion and take the time to post it online, at least attempt to make it seem like you know what you're talking about.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Wow. Classy.


    Kpop fans are sooo fucking classy.


    Lol.

    ReplyDelete
  110. J idols are garbage compared to k-idols. Japanese idol industry is complete garbage. Johnnys... AKB all fucking garbage. Japan's non idol music scene is far more legit and better.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Agree!! Kara makes catchy, cute songs... Its like Kawaii Kpop.. That's why i love them.. And the members all seem friendly and down to earth.

    ReplyDelete
  112. In KARA, there are members who can sing (all in their own style), dance,
    act, play accoustic guitar (Jiyoung, Hara), guitar (Jiyoung, Hara), violin (Nicole), keyboard (Gyuri, Seungyeon) and drums (Hara in recent Tokyo Dome Concert). They helped in the lyrics for their solo songs, there are great models and entertainers plus great personalities and strong images as idols. And yes, to me they're the fucking best you can go cry cry.

    And they made it in Tokyo Dome. That's great. The second biggest seller (girlband) in Korea, yes, they're good.

    And ignorant people like the ones I'm reading here are just too irrelevant. KARA will keep growing and raising as a group, and your poor criticism won't be interfering them.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Tokyo Dome tickets were sold-out in five minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Outdated people, stuck on the past ofc.

    ReplyDelete
  115. ok I admit that KARA sold more albums compare to TVXQ but please get the facts right..they never sold more than a million of their japanese album (cumulatively yes, but individual album no)..heck they never even got certified million by RIAJ

    ReplyDelete
  116. Wow, the TVXQ haters are so delusional. Kara had a very short period of popularity in Japan that is already over. Even with only two members TVXQ are now outselling Kara and SNSD and had the biggest tour by a korean artist ever. Seriously can't believe that there are so many ignorant users on this site that liked such comments.

    ReplyDelete
  117. TVXQ did much better than Kara in 2012, idiot. Do you even know how to read the charts?

    ReplyDelete
  118. you deusional Cassie get the facts right.

    KARA second Japanese album, "Super Girl" sold around 1 million copies.

    and cumulatively they also sold way more than your TVXQ oppas.

    ReplyDelete
  119. ...IDK why you say that since I never said the list of J-artists I stan
    I also like EXILE, Yuya, E-girls, BRIGHT


    I guess they're shitty then?

    ReplyDelete
  120. IDK why you think talents matter in pop music or when it come to idols..............
    If you actually look them up, like REALLY give them a chance, you would get it.

    ReplyDelete
  121. more article bout this pls pls pls~~~~ :D

    ReplyDelete
  122. The only person you're fooling is yourself. Do you think it's a COINCIDENCE that all idols are smoking hot?

    ReplyDelete
  123. Without dbsk...kara=nugu...
    If kara have to work from the bottom like dbsk..even 1mil years...they wouldnt have made it..no offence...but queens are too delusional...kara(kpop group) vs jpop group(tohoshinki5)?toho still would be dominating by miles...talent wise and everything...thats y they r called japanese artist...

    ReplyDelete
  124. Lol-ing at the comments...kara is more popular than akb48 and dbsk?LOL WUT?kara is only popular bcoz of dbsk...no dbsk....not even a speck of kara anywhere

    ReplyDelete
  125. Well, that's great for Kara. But in the end, SNSD made more money than them.

    2012 Kara sales = $40.5 million (CD+DVD)
    2012 SNSD sales = $51.4 million (CD+DVD)
    2012 TVXQ sales = $24.2 million (CD+DVD)

    No one's even close to reaching DB5K's record of $112 million.


    Source: AKP Girls' Generation ranks #1 in highest revenue of Korean artists in Japan for 2012.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Okay, then. DB5K (2010: $112 million) >>>>> Kara (2012: $40.5 million).

    2012 Kara sales =$40.5 million (CD+DVD)
    2012 SNSD sales =$51.4 million

    (CD+DVD).

    ERRRR Kara's sales actually decreased in 2012...

    ReplyDelete
  127. TVXQ5 2010 Japan sales = $112 million
    TVXQ2 2012 Japan sales = $24.2 million


    TVXQ2 is strong, but TVXQ5 was unstoppable.

  132. maybe i am being a bit harsh. but i ALWAYS see you comparing kpop groups to AKB48 i honestly think J-Idol music is garbage. Yuya Matsushita, Bright, Perfume and Exile, i like them also^^

  133. The only akb song i like well the one by itano tomomi is dear j that song is awesome

    ReplyDelete
  134. I don't compare kpop groups to AKB tho :O J-idols and K-idols have such different concept.
    In this case with Kara, I do cuz they both went to TD but that's it.
    Honestly it's people here that necessarily shade AKB when they're not even in the article....kinda similar to how Knetizens act~ <__<


    Meh~ music is subjective. If you like it, you like it, if not then w/e AKB got some good shizz like Beginner and UZA tho and I appreciate that despite being a pop group, they have songs about suicide and bullying or about depression.

  135. CD+DVD sales

  136. I highly doubt they're going to release more than 2 singles/year in Japan again. Do you know how hard DB5K members had to work in order to release singles non-stop in Japan, then promote non-stop in Korea, and then go back to promote non-stop in Japan? SM used to work DB5K to the bone because they were their biggest cash cow. Ever since JYJ left, TVXQ members' contracts have been revised and now TVXQ members also have the free time and freedom to pursue other activities such as acting and emceeing. If DB5K were still together, you can bet your life savings that TVXQ would be releasing more than 2 singles/year in Japan, promoting non-stop, with NO breaks. Support TVXQ, but don't discredit JYJ.

  137. IKR?! I'm so glad both JYJ and TV2Q are getting their well-deserved breaks. SMEnt milked them to the bone before the lawsuit. Those days where they ONE week of break was actually a photobook vacation, which isn't really a vacay at all. Plus the end of 2008 where they had end of the year shows in both Japan and Korea. It was like, morning Korea, afternoon Japan, night Korea scenario :(( Not talking about who's right/wrong here, but I can understand why JYJ was not happy.

  139. Since you know little about me or my preferences I can only assume you're projecting your own insecurities. Maybe you weren't aware but it's actually ok to like what you like, and taste is subjective. I won't die for thinking Hara has a sweet voice. It's not a big deal. The fact that someone is attractive has no bearing on my ears but again I don't have to prove myself to you. If you want to be stubborn and belligerent over such a silly matter that's fine, but I won't engage in this any longer. Have a nice day.

  140. Ok lol now who is delusional here?

    2011 Super Girl = 450,595
    2012 Super Girl = 295,651
    TOTAL = 746,256

    http://www.tokyohive.com/2012/12/oricon-reveals-their-yearly-album-ranking-for-2012/

    So tell me how is that selling more than a million?

    And like I said before..they were NEVER certified million by RIAJ (and certification is just base on shipment not actual sales..so how can they achieve a million sales when they haven't even ship a million album?)

    And cumulatively TVXQ still sold more than KARA and make more than KARA..granted it's because they've release more material...

    ReplyDelete
  141. Oh please, the only person that's insecure here is you. I can confidently say that I like idols because of their looks. You're the one that's too ashamed to admit that, and instead makes excuses like musical "diversity" to pretend like there's any merit to their music.

  142. TVXQ5 2010 CD ( 2 single + 1 album ) + DVD sales = $112 million

  143. to go from selling 200,000+ copies of a single to 100,000+? lol ok if you say so, even when they were 5 they could have sold all the tickets to a 5 day dome tour,

    ReplyDelete
  144. lol their keep your head down single sold almost 300,000 copies, they're barely selling 150,000-180,000 now. how is that doing better when in db5k's last months they were selling around 200,000+ copies. Yunho and Changmin are doing good, but not better than when they were together with jyj

  148. and by 3rd Q SM claimed the company make no money, huge loss due to high production cost of TVXQ2. Co. stock dropped 45%
    Pensioners / funds mgrs once again lost huge $.

    ReplyDelete
  149. lolwhat the only album that sold over 200000 copies was breakout for obvious reasons, their new singles sold much more than iconic songs like doushite, bolero etc.

    ReplyDelete
  150. lol what, it's hilarious how people are so obsessed with down playing their achievements, sm didn't face a huge loss or even a small loss, they didn't make as much money as analysts expected them to do, but still made much much more money than last year, the stock dropped but got high again only a few weeks later, go read that article again, and in case you didn't realize, tohoshinki are produced by avex, their tour was coproduced by avex, obviously sm wasn't going to make much money from them at that time since they didn't have any korean activities

  151. Just like Big Bang, Suju, 2NE1, SNSD and so, trolls are going to hate while they get the blessings. So please keep on hating on them. Society is never happy no matter what anyone does. People always gotta hate on anything and anyone. Congrats Hara & KARA for going to the Tokyo Dome. That's a huge accomplishment for them.

    ReplyDelete
  152. "There's no prestige in Tokyo Dome anymore, people can just get there by paying for the spot"

    If there is no prestige now then how was there any before? When johnny's groups would hold there debut there, or would hold a concert in it before 1year, when foreign acts who never learned a bit of Japanese held multiple day concerts at the dome. Ayumi also held it only a couple years into her debut, long before she broke a ton of records. I fo kind of wish Kara waited a bit longer too, but everyone who has performed there has deserved it, so the talk of it losing prestige is silly unless you always thought that way.

    ReplyDelete
  153. which is why I said the last months ..... duh and excuse me but those singles all did better than their recent singles, regardless of the reason they still sold more. Just like how you were all buying like 20 copies of the keep your head down single to prove of a point but didn't manage to keep up with those numbers.

  154. every groups has singers dancers actors etc, and in almost every group you will find better singers dancer actors musicians etc, kara members are not in any top 5 not even top 10 in any field they are the epitomy of basic and mediocre.

    ReplyDelete
  155. they have the same kind of audience only that akb has more of them

    ReplyDelete
  156. Not saying KARA r the best idol group for sure they r not mediocre i will not say that, for me mediocre is an idol group who barely can sing, or dance or anything and in top of that they give u boring performances and KARA is not like that

    ReplyDelete
  157. LOL KARA filled Tokyo Dome in minutes, and that's a fact, and you can continue to sulk all you want, but history had been made and nothing is going to change that.

    ReplyDelete
  158. Whoever manages to fill the Dome, deserves it. Without any prestige, you think anyone can attract 50,000 fans? How naive. And most of these fans have already attended KARA's concerts before and they were back for more. Just because KARA is not your taste, you all can disregard their abilities. They cater to the crowd that dominates the world's music market, and a very conservative one at that, and that's a feat even the best female group from Korea have a hard time getting into.

    ReplyDelete
  159. Tokyo Dome is a huge obstacle for many. To fill it is like lifting a 1,000 pound weight. Well, KARA lifted it, but some people just could not accept that. They came up with all kind of excuses. The worst thing is, most of them have only listened to 1 or 2 old KARA songs and summed up their entire careers. All the records KARA has broken and the chart-topping positions for all their singles and albums, are over-looked becos these haters did not even know about them in the first place.
    This proved that empty vessels do make a lot of noise. LOL

  160. I don't think there's a need to compare Kara and AKBE or whoever idols neither in Japan nor Korea. They're unique and special in their own way. Go kara!

    THIS. So true. Bashers will always be bashers and almost every singer/idol has haters no matter how great and perfect they are. I don't care about those hate comments about Kara. Hara may not sing like other good singers out there but the fact that she is not completely "talent-less" and that she has great character is what matters to me and other kamilias out there. If they really are nothing like what other people are saying here then how come they were able to make it this big in Japan? Geez some people need to show some respect. I may not be a big fan of AKB48 and other groups mentioned but I don't go around in blogs/forums comparing them to Kara or any other group just to say something totally unnecessary about them. Kara is Kara. Every group out there has their own Pros and Cons.
