* ''Revolution'' 2009
** ''Wanna EP'' 2009

!!Tropes in their work:

* AerithAndBob: Gyuri, Seungyeon, [[OddNameOut '''Nicole''']], Hara, Jiyoung.
** Justified. Nicole was born and raised in California.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Their latest single ''Lupin''.
* EarWorm: Most of their songs after Sunghee left the group and Hara and Jiyoung joined. Special mention goes to ''Mister'', ''Wanna'' and ''Lupin''.
* EroticEating: Pretty mild, but the main part of their dance for ''Honey'' involved mimicking the action of wiping honey off of their mouths.
* GirlGroup: One of the most popular Korean examples.
* FaceOfTheBand: Hara.
* LighterAndSofter: Their comeback aftter Sunghee left and Hara and Jiyoung joined. They started going back to a {{DarkerAndEdgier}} style eventually.
* MaleGaze: Their [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "butt dance"]] for ''Mister'' was pretty much made for this.
** Then when Kara started to promote in Japan, the Korean fanbase called out the Japanese fanbase for [[HypocriticalFandom focusing too much on the girls' behinds]].
* ShoutOut: The concept of their song ''Lupin'' is [[ArseneLupin Arsene Lupin]].

* ReplacementScrappy: Averted; in fact, the most popular member of the group now is one of the replacements, Koo Hara.



* TastesLikeDiabetes: ''Honey'', as the name would imply. It's more the concept than the actual song though.
