YMMV: KARA
The Korean pop band

  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: The group winning number one on Show Champion with "Mamma Mia", especially after all the crap they've been through in the last little while. It's heartwarming as well when you see Hara and Gyuri making open efforts to be friendly with Young Ji.
  • 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.
  • Never Live It Down: Seungyeon stole Nicole's solo time to show off, ruining the group's choreography and causing Gyuri to give her an epic Death Glare. Fans have not forgiven her for her bitchy behavior. While I-fans are more generally forgiving than K-fans, they don't make an exception for her. This is always brought up whenever there's an article about her and it's getting worse now that she keeps landing lead roles in tv dramas, but her acting skills are nonexistent. You could say she is The Scrappy of the group.
  • 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.
    • The new member YoungJi seems to be averting this so far, although there has definitely not been a warm welcome.
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: Honey, as the name would imply. It's more the concept than the actual song though.
  • Tearjerker: Gyuri, of all people, felt insecure about her weight and wound up becoming bulimic for a time.
