On 18th January 2011, it was first reported by NATE News & NEWSEN that KARA would be spitting from DSP Media. It is a result of the entertainment company’s poor and unreasonable treatment of KARA, as percieved by most of the group members and their families. The report further adds that the group had always been trying their best to resolve these prolonged issues between them and the company, but to no avail. From a statement issued by LANDMARK (a legal firm representing Hara, Seungyeon, Jiyoung and Nicole), it is known that the members have suffered inexplicable pain that had brought them to this decision so as to protect their rights and future. Being overworked with schedules that were forced upon the popular girl group, they have decided to part ways with the company. Park Gyuri, the leader of KARA is not included in this decision as she was initially not made known to this matter. (Personally i find it abit wierd that the group consensus isn’t there, are they really close to each other?) Gyuri was then reported saying that the other members were doing this eventually because it is for money. (Would’nt anyone claim something that is rightfully theirs after having personally worked hard for?) This move came as a surprise and heartache for many netizens and fans as they are currently doing very well in Japan, recently winning titles from the 52nd Japan Record Awards and the 25th Japan Gold Disc Awards.
