1. [+1,822, -156] What's wrong with KARA? Why is it that the member with the best personality and the one who worked the hardest is leaving?
2. [+1,623, -150] I really liked how Nicole had a great personality and worked so hard, though...
3. [+1,399, -166] KARA should just disband
1. [+6,157, -165] Well that's game over for the group... Nicole was their last hope
2. [+5,757, -354] And what exactly does the group expect to accomplish without Nicole?
3. [+4,920, -291] Unfortunate that a group once regarded as the best is now being called game over
4. [+3,521, -103] KARA's just going for the makjang now, aren't they
5. [+1,687, -137] Nicole made a realistic choice. No reason to stay any longer in a failing group.

1. [+6,500, -165] She'll be like Sunmi and come back out saying "48 Hours" isn't enough
2. [+4,495, -164] KARA's already lost their roots... Even if they do disband, there's nothing unfortunate about it.
3. [+3,497, -150] I'm just so extremely disappointed in KARA...
4. [+1,195, -37] What makes Jiyoung think she can follow any college level course overseas with the education she has now?
5. [+1,064, -39] She really thinks she can last a day studying abroad when she got into Sungkyunkwan Uni through special treatment?

1. [+226, -15] I think Nicole's leaving because they're not treating her the way they should... Ever since KARA's last controversy, Nicole hasn't had any individual activities. I wouldn't renew my contract either.
2. [+217, -18] This is good, I didn't want Nicole in a group like that anyway. I hope she joins a new company and does even better ㅋㅋㅋ
3. [+36, -7] As for Jiyoung, well... She never had a great image to begin with with the iljin rumors and now the Radio Star incident. She's in college anyway, might as well study abroad since there's no reason for her to stay in KARA.
