130319 How does Gyuri handle disrespectful hoobae girl groups?


Gyuri revealed how she handled disrepectful hoobae girl groups.

She was a guest on the March 19 episode of ‘Incarnation‘, where she talked about how to leave a lasting impression for a first meeting. She explained, “While I was a radio DJ, a rookie girl group came on the show as guests. Usually, rookies work really hard and they’re filled with motivation, and we have a really happy mood. When that happens, us DJs also want to do something for them and work really hard. But the people who came out that day were not only doing things half-heartedly, they were extremely rude.”

She said, “When I ask questions, even the sunbaes don’t act in such a manner, but they said, ‘Ah, I don’t know’. I thought to myself, ‘Huh? What is this? This isn’t right’. If the broadcast goes well, then it would’ve been a big help to them too.” At this point, MCs Shin Dong Yup and Yoon Jong Shin tried to figure out who the girl group was, guessing if there were 4 or more members, but like a veteran Gyuri avoided the question expertly.

She continued, “During the break, I asked who was their leader as politely and nicely as possible. I then asked how old she was, and I found out she was younger. So I thought to myself, ‘All right’. But since it was break time, my manager oppa was right next to me. So I turned to him and acted really cold.”

Gyuri revealed, “I acted like I was mad, and that I took it out on my manager oppa. So the mood sort of fell down. I kept getting mad at my manager oppa and right before coming back for broadcast I said, ‘Let’s continue’, and everyone was frozen in their seats. After seeing this, they became very diligent.“

Written By Kim Regina on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 | 5:44 PM


Gyuri revealed that she has quite an appetite! Although she probably has to watch what she eats a little more so now that she is an idol, she didn’t let anything stop her before her debut, and left the hosts and guests of ’Incarnation‘ quite awed.

On the 19th’s episode, KARA’s resident ‘goddess’ revealed, “Before I debuted, I went to places that would give you one extra pizza if you ordered one. When two pizzas came, I ate it all. If I felt I was full, I would maybe leave 1-3 slices and ate the rest.”

She also revealed a story in which she and her friends, who also happened to have big appetites, stunned their male friends with the amount of food they could eat. Gyuri said, “Once, I went to a restaurant with my friends, and we ate meat, udon, starch noodles, rice cakes, and sweet potatoes. The guys said they were full, but my girlfriends and I added on even more rice and cheese.”


She continued, “After that, we went to the cafe and ate cakes, brownies, macchiatos, and shaved ice.”

130319 Kara's Gyuri Shares Her Method of Keeping Rude Girl Groups in Line


Kara‘s leader Park Gyuri shared a story about a rude junior girl group and how she kept them in line.

On the episode of “Hwa Shin” that aired on March 19, the guests and emcees started a discussion under the topic, “how to gain control over others at the first encounter.”

Gyuri started to share her story by saying, “When I was doing a radio show withSuper Junior‘s Shindong oppa, a rookie girl group was the guest for the day. Usually, rookies will be filled with determination and passion so the atmosphere would be lively and warm. But this particular rookie girl group had no sincerity.”

When the others started to ask which girl group she was talking about, Gyuri did not answer. MC Shin Dong Yup asked, “Do they have four members?” but Gyuri did not reveal the girl group.

Gyuri continued her story as she said, “I got annoyed and thought ‘What is this?’ If the broadcast goes well, then it would be a plus for the juniors too but it wasn’t like that,” and “During our break, I seriously asked them who the leader is and how old they all were. They were all younger than me.”

Finally, Gyuri continued, “Then I started to talk in an attacking and aggressive manner to my manager on purpose. I acted like I was venting at my manager when I was angry at the girl group,” and “When it was time to go on air again, I acted sweet toward the juniors again. But it seemed like they were disciplined and they showed a better, more sincere attitude. Sometimes, I want to use this method toward other people when I see them.”
