The Korean pop band

  • Ear Worm: Most of their songs after Sunghee left the group and Hara and Jiyoung joined. Special mention goes to Mister, Wanna, Step and Lupin.
    • Wanna is such an Ear Worm that Pump It Up Fiesta, which includes the song (among other K-pop songs), has a course that consists of the song five times in a row.
  • Face of the Band: Hara.
  • Replacement Scrappy: Averted; in fact, the most popular member of the group now is one of the replacements, Goo Hara.
    • Not after her recent scandal. The current popular members seem to be Gyuri and Nicole, with Seungyeon and Jiyoung being disliked, and Hara being the target of netizens' undisguised loathing.
      • Indeed, any news of Kara's possible disbandment is met with "So? Go tell the Japanese, the Korean public doesn't care!"
      • Nicole's getting hate now because she's gone back to America to study, and never seems to be doing any actual studying. Netizens are resentful, saying she's quite average-looking, she "probably would have ended up working at a McDonald's in America", "she's not a celebrity anymore so stop writing articles about her"... Sheesh.
    • It seems like whoever gets added to the group to replace Nicole and Jiyoung will be subjected to this.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: Honey, as the name would imply. It's more the concept than the actual song though.
