After recently wrapping up promotions for their latest title track“Damaged Lady,” KARA will no longer be promoting with five members after next year. Nicole has decided not to renew her contract with DSP Media after it expires in January 2014, and will therefore no longer be a member of KARA.
Through a press release, DSP announced on October 4th that the other three members, Gyuri, Seungyeon, and Hara have all renewed their contracts for another two years and will continue promoting as KARA. Jiyoung’s contract also expires in April next year, but has yet to decide whether to renew it or not. A representative from DSP stated, “Jiyoung is thinking about resting and studying abroad. Right now, she is working hard as part of KARA, and nothing has been confirmed yet. There is still a lot of time left, so we will be discussing this further.”
Meanwhile, fans have been speculating the reason for Nicole’s departure from KARA. An online community posted an article on October 4th, stating that aside from being an MC for SBS’s Inkigayo, Nicole has not had many individual activities since KARA’s controversy in 2011.
Despite this recent development, KARA is continuing their second Japan arena tour, with performances in Yokohama, Fukuoka, and Osaka. Furthermore, DSP clarified that regardless of the final decisions, KARA will continue with domestic and international activities.
What do you think of this recent development? KARA fans, will you continue to support KARA with three, possibly four, members?

Naya Rivera is engaged to Big Sean after just six months of dating.
The Glee actress showed off her stunning square-cut diamond engagement ring at Latina magazine’s Hollywood Hot List Party on Thursday night. Her representative confirmed to Just Jared that she is set to marry her rapper beau.
The proposal has clearly left the 26-year-old beauty in high spirits, and she was glowing while posing for photographs on the red carpet, wearing a low-cut camisole and silky black trousers.
Big Sean – real name Sean Anderson – was unable to accompany his new fiancée to the event, as he was performing in Toronto.

Sinead O’Connor has threatened Miley Cyrus with legal action after accusing the controversial US star of “mocking” mental illness.
The feud began when O’Connor wrote an open letter to the 20-year -old, urging her not to allow the music industry to “prostitute” her. In response Cyrus took to Twitter and appeared to allude to the Irish singer’s public breakdown last year by likening her to Amanda Bynes, the American actress who has had mental health issues.
O’Connor, 46, has warned Cyrus to remove the tweets “immediately” or she will instruct her lawyers.
She wrote in an open letter this morning: “Miley… Really? Who the f*** is advising you? Because taking me on is even more f*****’ stupid than behaving like a prostitute and calling it feminism.
