In the midst of promoting their latest comeback single, 'Damaged Lady', DSP Media finally reveals the impending damage that KARA will be doing soon. In previous weeks, there were hints that negotiations were being done around their upcoming contract renewals.

The girls have decided and only Park Gyuri, Goo Hara, and Han Seungyeon are staying with DSP for two more years. Nicole has clarified that she is no longer signing on with DSP, and thus her contract will expire in January as scheduled. The group's maknae Jiyoung has her contract up for renewal in April. Since she is still a minor at this time, and will be turning 20 by the time her contract is up, she will take the time to think and make her decision.

It appears that the resolution of the issue in 2011 was only temporary and lasted only as far as their current contracts. In the original dispute, Nicole was also most aggrieved and was most resolute about leaving. It appears her dissatisfaction with the current management continued and has led to her finally leaving the group.

DSP Media insists that KARA will continue with just the members remaining, which means they will either end up as a 3 or 4-member group.   The biggest question now is, 'What will Jiyoung decide?'  

KARA is one of K-pop's most successful girl groups, having a huge base in Japan, as well as having gone on international promotions.  They were formed in 2007.  Next year would have been their 7th year together.  

Recently, they also have gone onto short but meaningful acting projects.

Let's take a look at their best music videos through the years:
