I had mixed reactions when I first found out about them.
I was shocked, I read the title a few times to make sure it was just a CF or something like that. But when I read through the article, I soon found out that it was real.
They are real.
Hara is my favourite in KARA and it does make me worry a little. I really hope she met a nice guy, who can take care of her and be there for her. And when I found out it was Junhyung, I felt relieved. Though I don’t much about him, since I just recently became a B2ST fan, he seems like a nice guy. And pretty good looking too. Lol. I act like a concern unnie. xD
What really made me relieved is how happy Hara looked in the pictures. I can’t help but smile, watching her smile. And that’s when I know she’s really into this guy. And it explains why she looks so bright these past few weeks. You know how people said that when someone is in love, they glows? xD
Some fans are hoping its fake and some thinks it’s real. As for me, I think it’s pretty legit.
No matter how I think about it, KARA/DSP has no reason to create a scandal at times like this. If this is staged, it will only bring more damage to them. Because:
1. KARA’s new Japanese single will be released tomorrow. Yes, a scandal a day before could raise the sales, but could also destroy it completely. Are DSP willing to take such risk? Especially when they just starting to build KARA’s image again?
2. KARA barely survived their first controversy. Do they really need another controversy for attention?
3. Hara is the most popular member. She has more fans in Japan than any other female kpop idols (based on their Japan fancafe). I don’t think announcing their idol is taken is going to add more fans.
If this really is an experimental marketing technique that DSP pull then I really have nothing to say. There’s way too much risk. It’s stupid, from a business point of view.
But then, who knows. /shrugs
But at the back of my romantic mind, /chuckles
I think these two are dating. Knowing how honest Hara is, it’s really something that Hara will do. She once boldly admitted her surgeries to the whole world, and has no fears doing anything she wants. I think if she really like someone, she’s not afraid to show him to the world either.
And that’s an admirable thing to do.
And I just want to share this post by a Kamilia (myhoneyclaire) who happens to be a huge Hara fan I found on Karaholic. It’s really sweet.
tbh, i feel so happy for these two.
the entertainment industry is so difficult and having someone special there with you just makes it even more special and easier. by being public, they can get through hardships together easier and it’ll be easier for their love to last once the public “approves” of the couple.
i keep on hearing “i dont like her” or “i dont like him” or “WHYYYY??!J KLSDJ FKLSDFJ”…
this type of stuff which is totally understandable
but i really hope people will get over it and understand that no you probably will NOT marry or even have a chance to date EITHER of them so feel happy for them because if you are a true fan, you will feel happy for them.
another thing is that i hear people say that “oh they’ll probably break up soon” and i hate hearing that.
each couple is different. they shouldn’t be compared to jonghyun and shin sekyung nor should they be compared to se7en and park hanbyul. each couple will have their own love story and their own chance at the game of love. they shouldn’t be compared to anyone. sure it doesnt hurt to compare a little but saying that they’ll break up soon just because jonghyun and sekyung broke up so soon just doesnt cut it for me.
not to mention, if they were confident enough to bring this relationship to public, that means that they want this relationship to last and they want their fans, some of the most important people to them, to be able to accept their relationship. it means that they trust their fans enough to bring this to public. kpop nowadays and kpop back then is a lot different.
2nd generation kpop idols couldn’t even be within one meter or talk to the opposite sex without being bashed on (im exaggerating a bit but u know what i mean) and now kpop loves making celebrity couples.
kpop has come a long way and hopefully this will be the start of kpop actually being normal and not having celebrities hide relationships.
lastly, i think we all remember when kara appeared on taxi and hara was crying a little and saying how her heart feels lonely. after all that hara and the girls have gone through, im glad that she has found someone who picked her up when she felt the lowest and was about to help her through her darkest times. junhyung is an awesome guy whom i love dearly and i love hara to death. i never thought of them dating but from what i know about each of them, i know that they’ll be good to each other. when i saw that taxi episode of hara crying and saying that she felt lonely, i just wanted someone to be there for her and to stand by her. not just the girls but someone else there for her and im glad that junhyung can now be there for her.
even though since im a girl i should love junhyung more than hara, i love hara more than junhyung and i can say this as a hara fan and as a girl. every girl wants that happy ending with that someone special and hara has been deprived of happy endings and good things for so long that she really deserves this. hara looks REALLY happy in those pictures. like its not that many pictures where we can see her face but out of those, she has that smile. that hara smile when shes happy.
after all the years of hardships and pain, hara has gotten her happiness and i just hope that people can be open-minded and help hara keep that happiness ♥
I’m actually surprised most Kamilia there are very calm about this news. Kudos to them for being a mature fandom. (:
Though there are quite a number of heartbroken Harawotas..
Anyway, I love you both dearly and I hope you will prove people wrong and stay strong together. He’s a good catch, so Hara, you go girl!
All the best to you both. (:
