KARA caught in controversy after parking in handicap spot
KARA has only returned to the music scene for a week and the group has already been hit with a controversy.
On August 22nd, KARA performed their comeback showcase after releasing their 5th mini-album "Pandora." Since then, the girl group has been busy performing their comeback stages on various music programs.
However, KARA has been pulled into several debates and controversies following their comeback. For one, their suggestiveness of their choreography has raised concern, along with their outfits. For "Pandora," KARA wanted to show the appearance of being mature women, but fans are concern that the choreography is too suggestive for '94er Kang Jiyoung. However, netizens seemed to be divided in opinion regarding this topic. Similarly, music programs have not deemed the costumes and/or choreography inappropriate.
In addition, KARA was seen wearing a stage costume on SBS "Inkigayo" for the track "Miss You," reminiscent of a Gucci swimwear. They looked identical to Gucci's 2008 Spring/Summer swimsuit collection, which is yellow with a black and white bow on one shoulder.
Currently, conditions between South Korea and Japan over the Dokdo Islands have been increasingly become intense. During KARA's press conference prior to their comeback showcase, the group were questioned on their thoughts about the Dokdo Islands situation because KARA is popular in Japan, as well as in South Korea.
Park Gyuri replied in a manner in which she avoided answering the question. However, the lack of response received criticism from netizens.
Unfortunately, this is not the last controversy KARA has unexpectedly found themselves in. Recently, KARA's vans have been found parking in handicap spots at a rest stop area for approximately 15-20 minutes. Because KARA is popular and the youth and young adults look up to them, many have criticized that KARA should have not parked in handicap spots.
It has been a week since KARA released their "Pandora" album, yet they have been the topic of both good and bad news.
What do you think of some of the claims above?
