Girl group KARA released their music video for their third mini-album title track Lupin today, at 1pm (KST) through Gom TV. With this music video, they shed off their cutie image and went for a more charismatic performance. The MV took the number 1 spot on real-time charts and within 2 hours from its release, the music video had been viewed 90,000 times. At 6pm today (KST) the number of views rose to 160,000.
With their butt dance being all the rage last year, netizens were looking forward to the new dance craze the 5 girls of KARA will bring with Lupin. There are already a few dance steps that are pointed out by fans, the hottest of them being the ‘Emergency Exit Dance’. Netizens named the dance step ‘Emergency Exit Dance’ because the choreography seemed like the girls were running and climbing a flight of stairs to exit through the emergency door.
Another choreography that caught the eyes of the netizens is the dance during the ‘Halla~ Halla~’ part of the Lupin. Moving their shoulders and stomachs, and also their chests, in a circular motion, this dance step shows the powerful and sexy image of KARA.
The netizens also love the part of the dance where Goo Hara flips her long straight hair, and the dance step where the members look like Bond girls, holding out a gun.
The track Lupin, which was released on the 17th have been performing well in the charts. On 22nd, the song was still holding the number 1 spot in Melon, Mnet.com, Dosirak, Soribada, and Monkey3.
KARA will comeback through M! Countdown, Music Bank, Music Core, and Inkigayo this week.
