Netizens haven’t quite fallen in love with KARA after the group’s Inkigayo comeback stage for their latest track “Cupid,” criticizing the girls for their lack of sexiness and poor vocals.
KARA, who dropped the music video for Cupid from their latest mini-album In Love on May 26th, held their comeback stage on the March 31st episode of SBS’s Inkigayo.
However, despite the girls’ sexy concept, many netizens commented that they felt the group tried, and failed, to appear sexy and feminine. In addition, netizens also commented on the group’s vocals, stating that they felt KARA should have practiced more on their vocals before coming back.
Other netizens rushed to defend the girls, saying that KARA’s live vocals from their Inkigayo performance were pretty good.
Check out KARA’s performance and what netizens have to say:
1. [+164, -36] It’s amazing how they’re unable to look sexy
2. [+135, -39] I acknowledge that they’re pretty but they’re singers, they really should practice more. They’re really bad.
– http://m.tvcast.naver.com/v/404525 Their live sounds okay, though? Singing live doesn’t mean you have to sing on I Am A Singer level, doesn’t it just mean you sing as close to the CD recording as possible? They’re pretty good considering they’re dancing too – They’re not bad enough to warrant a comment like this. Their live was pretty good.
3. [+107, -10] Whenever I hear a KARA song, there’s something about it that I can tell right away that it’s by KARA. The song sounds like it’s sung by a bunch of little kids ㅜ Maybe because of Han Seungyeon? There’s just something unique about their songs – Their songs sound outdated..
4. [+20, -21] I heard their MR removed and Goo Hara’s good but Gyuri’s really good. Are people calling them bad even after hearing their MR removed?
5. [+19, -8] It’s funny how all four try to act so sexy and femme fatale but they’re not at all ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
6. [+14, -3] KARA hasn’t had a good song since “Mister.” If they can’t back it up vocally, they need a performance-focused song like “Mister” but they haven’t had another since.
7. [+14, -3] Youngji got a lot prettier!
8. [+8, -6] Here people go with the vocal hate again ㅋㅋㅋㅋ hate on others for showing too much skin, for being ugly, is the goal here just to hate?
9. [+8, -8] Surprised at the lack of interest despite it being a comeback
10. [+7, -1] I heard their MR removed and they’re quite good. I think people just automatically assume that they’re bad the minute they hear it’s KARA.
