It’s raining girl groups!

The original four members of Kara

After the exit of Kim Sung Hee in February this year, Kara is set to make their comeback with two new members plus an entirely new image this July.

According to DSP Entertainment, “The change from a 4 to five members group will see a change in their image. The two new members together with existing members, Park Gyu Ri, Han Seung Yeon and Jung Nicole will ditch their cute image of the past with something new. They will give their fans a new and refreshing feel and becoming a new shining light in the industry.”

So now they not only have to compete with YG’s planned girl group dubbed ‘Female Big Bang’, SNSD, and Wonder Girls, Jewelry but also DSP Entertainment’s tentative 7-member girl group named ‘DSP7’.

As far as Female Big Bang is concerned, four members are tentatively planned by YG – Park Bom, Gong Minji, CL, and Sandara Park.

The Wonder Girls have already released their third single entitles ‘So Hot’ – clad in an abundance of leopard print. Similarly, Jewelry have released their fifth album ‘Kitchi Island’, and a subsequent repackage with the single ‘Everybody Shh!’.

Meanwhile, SNSD, who has recently gained a lot of attention – though for all the wrong reasons, is planning to release a second album soon.

Lastly, DSP Ent. (Same company overseeing the promotion of Kara, SS501, A’ST1, Sunha) is planning to release a new 7-membered girl group a month after Kara’s comeback. Tentative members (handpicked from SS501’s music videos) include Kim Jae Kyung, Lee Joo Bin, No Eul, Jang Ji Soo, Min Ji Hye, Oh Se Mi and Jung Yoon Hye. The group’s tentative name is DSP7.

Hope it’s not another group which values quantity over quality.

Looks like all girl groups are much in demand. Let’s hope we live through the inundation…

On a different note, where is Sunha anyway? Didn’t see her much after her debut…
