Kara Revealed their method of diet via

In the world we’re living in – isn’t it ironic on how we have become obsessed with health? There is something fundamentally, radically unhealthy about all of this. Many people take care of their diet and their body shape every 365 days! No exclusions, even the members of your favorite “Girl Groups” are in this situation.
As these girls made their recent comeback with their mini-album “Lupin” and topped the charts for consecutive days, when the KARA members were asked about what changed them dramatically in one year from pretty girls to the maturity of Lupin, they laughed by saying, “our appearance?”
Yes, they already bid their goodbyes to their cutesy baby fat as they welcome the atmosphere of maturity and strength. It was KARA’s shocking image that change the most. As what they said,

“Ever since our performance of the song “Honey” during the summer each of us started on diet. We can’t always be cute you know.”
Aren’t you curious about it? Well, each member’s diet is different from one another, but of course, these are basic diets. Its commonly less on carbohydrates, more on protein and vitamins. During dinner, they consume chicken breast and sweet potatoes. As a matter of fact, KARA’s very own shikshin Nicole, wakes up early in the morning and packs up lunches! Instead of working out, Kara members work on the choreography intensively. As they can’t eat whatever they want, they would feel depressed. Lastly, it is purely business. They added,
“This is our profession so of course we have to stay fit. No one forces us to do this. We just do this by ourselves”

SNSD and Kara have earned almost 10 billion won in Japan

Korean Girl groups have been chartbusting Japan’s music market, SNSD and Kara earns almost 10 billion won aggregately in Japan.

When releasing a single in Japan, there’s normal edition and limited edition. There are several versions available. Depending on the version, prices range about 1000 yen to 2000 yen. Because of different version and prices, estimated price would be about 1,500 yen per copy. With that price in mind and thus calculation for their income: SNSD’s Genie and Gee sold for 217 million yen (about 3 billion won) and 105 million yen (about 1.5 billion won) respectively while Kara’s Mister and Best album sold for 150 million yen (about 2.1 billion won) and 225 million yen (about 3.1 billion won) respectively which in total so far is about 9.7 billion won of income.

SNSD and KARA will promote in both Korea and Japan at the same time. SNSD will promote ‘Hoot’ in Korea and ‘Gee’ in Japan. While Kara will promote new song in both Japan and Korea in November. Both groups are expected to have busy schedules.
