Netizens show hatred towards KARA former member Kang Jiyoung

After KARA former member Kang Jiyoung was included in latest Japanese magazine, netizens can’t help but show hate

Earlier, we reported that the group KARA announced their disbandment after 3 members’ contracts expired. But among the two members who left the group initially, one of the former members, Kang Jiyoung, is having a successful career as an actress in neighboring country Japan. But since South Korea is known to dislike Japan due to historical reasons, many fans show hate towards idols who work in Japan.

Kang Jiyoung was recently included in the latest pictorial shoot in a Japanese magazine in which netizens are showing negative reactions.

Originally posted on Pann, netizens criticize former KARA member Kang Jiyoung of looking “Japanese.”

Titled “Kang Jiyoung Featured on Japanese Magazine,” here is the direct translation of the post and netizen comments below.

“Now we really can’t think of Kang Jiyoung as the former member of KARA



She matured so much…


She seems like a sexy Japanese actress.



She really pulls of the Japanese look very well.


I think she look great though.. It feels weird that she seems sexy now.


I always liked her cute T_T

But it is hard to find that now that she is working in Japan..
