Recently, various news outlets have reported that Goo Hara of KARA has good prospects in the entertainment agency market. It was revealed today that the ‘Invincible Youth‘ and ‘City Hunter‘ star is the only member whose contract with DSP Media will end as soon as this coming August. Big hitters in the entertainment industry are said to be actively planning to recruit the star.
One representative stated, “Because things have happened with KARA before, talk of contracts with media agencies is extremely sensitive. It’s a delicate situation to bring up, the music industry is rocking because such a big star is being released.”
The contracts for the rest of the members of KARA, Kang Ji Young, Park Gyuri, Han Seungyeon, Jung Nicole, will not be ending until next year, and Goo Hara has not made any commitments yet. There’s talk that even a solo career would work for her, especially because she has fans of all ages due to her appearance on popular variety shows.
There’s word that Hara is being very careful about choosing a media company because of past hardships with KARA. An acquaintance commented, “Goo Hara is still young, and she has a lot of ambition to start something new. I think this she’s preparing for another turning point in her life. If you add to that a likelihood to be in it for the long run, it’s probable that there will be aggressive negotiations. “
