The members of KARA are getting animated as they start their own anime series titled "KARA The Animation".
The anime series will consist of 5 episodes, each focusing on a different member. Each member will be portrayed in different careers based on their image and personality. Gyuri will be a police officer, Seungyeon will be an astronaut, Nicole will be a boat captain, Hara will be a police officer for the Monaco royal family, and Jiyoung will be a firefighter.
The members of KARA will be providing their own voice for the series, marking the first time they have done any voice acting. The dialogue will be in the group' native language, Korean, with Japanese subtitles.
The new anime is an attempt by KARA to reach out to their Japanese fans in a new way. "We are sure the show will please fans of KARA as well as anime fans in general," a member of the production crew stated.
"KARA The Animation" will be debuted on January 6th at the group's concert at the Tokyo Dome stadium. The series will begin airing in Japan afterwards, followed by a Korean broadcast.
