Kara, which means “sweet melody” in Greek, is made up of female members Park Gyu Ri, Han Seung Yeon, Goo Ha Ra, Nicole Jung and Kang Ji Young. Combining Euro dance pop, electronic dance and alternative rock, Kara made their debut in March 2007 with the release of their first album The First Blooming. In 2008, they released two mini-albums and three singles - "Rock U," "Pretty Girl" and "Honey," which became a No. 1 hit on the M.Net M! Countdown and won the Mutizen award. They returned with their second full studio album, Revolution, in July 2009. Lead single "Wanna" was an instant chart topper and the second single from the album, "Mister," was an even bigger success with its memorable dance choreography (nicknamed the "butt dance") that caught on with the public. Upon releasing their third mini-album, Lupin, in 2010, Kara went on to win their first No. 1 awards on M! Countdown and KBS Music Bank respectively. In the same year, the band made their debut in Japan with a Japanese version of their Korean hit, “Mister.” The single exceeded expectations, debuting at No. 5 on the Oricon daily and weekly charts. They were also the first non-Japanese girl group in 29 years to chart in the Oricon Top 10 with a debut single. Achieving their biggest feat yet, their latest hit Japanese single “Jet Coaster Love,” released on 6 April 2011, peaked at No. 1 on the Oricon Daily and Weekly Charts, selling 123,000 copies in its opening week.
