140810 KARA’s Park Gyuri Reveals Her Thoughts to Fans About Recruiting a New Member


Girl group KARA’s Park Gyuri revealed her feelings to her fans about recruiting a new member to the group.

On August 8, through her fan site, she posted a letter that started with, “I wasn’t sure how to start this letter and after erasing and writing a couple of times, I decided to write my personal thoughts.”

She continued on by saying, “I had a lot of worries like if I should contain my emotions until the showcase, what kinds of things should I say, how should I say it, and when or if I should just not say anything at all. However, to contain all of that until then will make it difficult for me to handle so I’m going to say it.”

Park Gyuri revealed why she decided to write this by saying, “Honestly, I thought about writing a letter or a reply but I couldn’t keep count as to how many times I decided not to. I thought if I spare my words, that would be the best way but at times, if I spare my words often, it continuously brings a bigger pain.”

Then, she apologized about the sudden recruitment of a new member by saying, “Just like I said at the fan meeting, I won’t let you down so trust me. I said that because I’m confident that I really won’t let you down. However, a few days later, the situation changed and although I said it with confidence, I ended up letting you guys down.”

She explained the circumstances that occurred at the time and said, “Although the best that I said transformed into a different nuance, as if to escape the situation, I’ll say it’s my fault for not venting this out ahead of time and for letting that be the cause of your imagination. That’s what happened.”

She continued on by saying, “Anyways, at this point, we have recruited a new member. I was someone’s fan once, liked them a lot, cried a lot, hated a lot, and loved a lot. I know the things you’re feeling when you watch the stage with the new members.”

Park Gyuri also said, “There will be people who will welcome them, there will be those who will hate them and there will be those who will be wishy-washy about it. I’m sure I’ll have to carry those feelings with me.”

Lastly, she wrapped up the letter by saying, “I know I can’t force it. It’s up to the person on how they feel. However, the members will be have carry it with them. For this album, we’re going to work really hard on stage. Right now, I think that’s the only answer and there’s nothing else I can think of. I wish all of us would stop being in pain. Stay healthy.”

Meanwhile, after recruiting Huh Youngji into the group and transforming into a four-member group, KARA will be making a comeback on August 18 with their sixth mini album, “Day & Night.”
