Seungyeon Reveals a KARA Reunion Might be Possible
KARA debuted under DSP Media (which is currently home to April, MIRAE, KARD, and more) in 2007. The girl group was composed of seven members, specifically Gyuri, Youngji, Seungyeon, Nicole, Jiyoung, Sunghee, and the late Hara.
KARA's disbandment took place after nine years, particularly in January 2016, after three members (Gyuri, Hara, and Seungyeon) decided not to renew their contracts with the agency.

During the interview with OSEN, Seungyeon shared that the KARA members are talking positively about their reunion, but nothing is certain yet.
The "STEP" singer added that the KARA members are talking about holding events including fan meetings, however, it remains difficult for the group to finalize it.
Former KARA member Seungyeon further shared that they often meet in person before the fourth level of social distancing in South Korea's metropolitan area was implemented. But at the moment, the members are now seeing each other separately through video calls.
The actress also said that the KARA members have a group chat. She concluded that fans can look forward to a KARA reunion, although she did not elaborate when.
In addition to this, Seungyeon also shared how her fellow KARA members helped her during her darkest days. She said that there was a time when she was mentally disturbed or a time when she wasn't feeling well, and whenever this happens, the members would help her overcome it.
Former KARA member Seungyeon continued that when she feels down in the dumps, she motivates herself by thinking that she has come this far to give up and that she can do it.
