As Kara members celebrated their 15th anniversary, the late Goo Ha-ra was also mentioned.

Along with this, she wrote “To commemorate the 15th anniversary of KARA’s debut, everyone gathered and had a time to celebrate. Everyone who lived together under the name of KARA will celebrate together for the first time, share stories, laugh and cry, and care for each other’s sinking hearts to make them a little happier. I have hope that I will be able to do it.”
Then, referring to the fan club Camilia, she added, “Congratulations once again on Camilia Day and KARA’s 15th anniversary of debut. I always appreciate and love you.”
The other members also celebrated the 15th anniversary of KARA by posting the photos on their social media. In addition, they also celebrated ‘Camilia Day’ on June 11, 2011, when the fandom Camilia, a compound word of Kara and family, had their first official fan meeting.
At the same time, the late idol Goo Hara, who has left this world behind her, was also mentioned in the post. Kara’s members usually tagged each other’s Instagram accounts on social media, and they never forgot Goo Hara’s. Although Goo Hara is no longer here, this action of Kara’s members shows that their affections for her are always there.
Kara debuted in the music industry in 2007 with Park Gyu-ri, Han Seung-yeon, and Nicole. In the following year, the group recruited Goo Hara and Kang Ji-young, and later Heo Young-ji as new members. Kara left a deep impression in the hearts of many K-pop lovers with their hits like ‘Rock U’, ‘Pretty Girl’, ‘Honey’, ‘Same Heart’, ‘Mister’, ‘Lupin’, ‘Step’, ‘Pandora’, ‘Damaged Lady’, ‘Mamma Mia’, etc.
Kara’s seventh mini-album and also their last album “In Love” was released in 2015. Since then, the group’s members started to focus on their solo careers. Meanwhile, in 2019, Goo Hara’s sudden death brought a huge shock to many fans of the group and the whole K-pop industry. At that time, the members were immediately present at the funeral home right after receiving the sad news to see of their friend. Kara members often mention Goo Hara in their posts on SNS. This is a way to express their longing and mourning for her so that the memories of Goo Hara will never fade away.
