In the saddest of sad news, DSP Media has announced that while Gyuri, Seungyeon and Hara have all determined to ride the KARA train until they presumably keel over and die, Jiyoung is contemplating whether to go solo or go to school and Nicole Jung is leaving KARA for good.
For those that appreciate “Mr.” for all of its’ glorified aesthetics, this is difficult to take.
DSP Media announced through an official press release, “We are announcing our official position on the matter of Nicole’s domestic contract with DSP Media.”
“Gyuri, Seungyeon, and Hara have all renewed their contract for another 2 years, and have decided to conduct their future activities with DSP… The contract for Jiyoung, different from the other members, will end in April and she has decided to think more about her life’s path, her singing career, and education.”
“Nicole has revealed that she has no intention to renew her contract with DSP and thus her contract will expire in January as originally scheduled,” the agency stated, thereby indirectly stating that Nicole will no longer be a member of KARA once the contract ends.
The worst part is that those who have a certain, erhm, bias for Nicole (that would be me) will have to find a new bias within the group.
Hopefully Nicole will finally be able to sleep for a whole night and hopefully DSP Media is able to find a replacement who can shake it as well as the soon-to-be-departed rapper.
