A collection KARA SS501

all-my-love ss501

SS501 will release a new 3-disc DVD, MBC Collection. Each DVD will contain rare footage, of never before scenes from the boys. Disc1 is a documentary of their history, disc 2 shows performance footage and disc 3 will reveal private footage of their travel to Thailand, fan event footage, interview with the members, etc. This collections also includes a 100-page deluxe photobook. (Pre-order at CDJ)

The DVD will be out on 11/25 through Universal Music Japan (UMJ). Coincidentaly the same Japanese label as Big Bang.  I’m not sure if they changed labels in Japan, because their label in Japan has been Pony Canyon. This might have something to do with KARA making their debut in Japan later this year.

kara

If they did change managements in Japan, I can’t help but think it’s because UMJ has done so well with Big Bang. SS501 hasn’t received that type of promotion in Japan and they’ve been there for over a year.

DSP Entertaiment said, “KARA’s Japanese management feels KARA has huge potential in Japan and we will begin full on promotions as originally planned.

It’s said that many of the industry professionals believe that KARA has the most potential of all girl groups in Korea. Which is probably true; they fit Japan’s image very well for idol groups. Yes I said idol, because that’s what they will be classfied as in Japan. Also, how much you want to bet that their music will be the epitomy of J-Pop and go against acts such as SPEED and MAX? They’ve been needing competition for quite some time, it looks like Korea is the place that can bring in some game.

Good luck to them, they will need it, especially in that Japan.

note: If you’re wondering about the title of this post, “kara” means “from” in Japanese.
