10th July 2012 – KARA K5J Press Conference in Singapore
KARA, which consists of 5 members namely, Park Gyuri, Han Seung yeon (absent due to hospitalization), Nicole Jung, Goo Hara, and Kang Jiyoung, were in town during the week for the promotional activities of K5J Fragrance. Holding their events in Singapore for the first time, the members of KARA expressed that they were really overwhelmed by the huge turnout of fans at their autograph session which was held a day prior to the press conference and showcase.
Said Gyuri, “Singaporeans are very friendly. The fans here are much more passionate than we expected!”
Added Nicole, who spoke in fluent English, “We managed to visit Universal Studios Singapore this time and had a great time there. I enjoy the Battlestar Galactica ride (name of the rollar coasters) the most and we were very impressed with the Transformer 3D ride! Besides that, we also had pepper and chilli crabs after our fan meeting, which were really delicious!”
Following, the group was prompted a series of questions pertaining to their K5J Fragrance line. When asked about the significance behind the jewel symbol, Hara explained that it is a representation of all five of them in KARA. The youngest member, Jiyoung, added that the perfume scent was personally chosen and agreed upon by themselves when they visited Paris in 2011.
“We are very honored to be the first K-pop girl group to have our own signature fragrance line and we hope everyone will like the scent. We are also looking forward to venturing out to other products in the near future as well.” (Gyuri)
“KARA is receiving a lot of love and support from fans all over the world. Although we always display a professional image on stage, we tend to be more fun-loving, easy-going and comfortable when we are offstage. I guess it’s this image of KARA that helps us to be more approachable to fans.” (Nicole)
