Jumping (Hangul: 점핑) is the fourth mini-album by South Korean girl group, Kara. It consists of five tracks including the lead single "Jumping", which is also a Korean version of the group's second Japanese single. It was released on November 10, 2010 by DSP Entertainment.
A teaser photo of Jumping's album cover was released on November 3, 2010 and according to a company official, “Kara’s new album utilizes the optical art concept of black and white geometric patterns, which differs depending on each member’s physical characteristics and image.” He added, “You will see a new and upgraded Kara with these modern, yet chic images.”
Following the release of the group's second Japanese single, DSP Entertainment announced that Kara will also be making a comeback again in South Korea during the same month of the Japanese single's release with a brand-new mini album to be released by November 10, 2010. The album's lead single will be the Korean version of their second Japanese single, "Jumping", allowing the group to promote the same song in both South Korea and Japan at the same time. Despite being promoted at the same time, Kara would be showing 2 different concepts for the song in Korea and Japan.
Kara began their Korean promotions on mid-November, starting on MBC's Music Core on November 21, 2010. The choreography for Jumping was slightly altered to differ from their Japanese promotions. The group also performed 'Burn' as a part of their special comeback performance.
On December 10, the group eventually got their second #1 win on KBS Music Bank for Jumping. Two days after their win in Music Bank, Kara won a #1 Mutizen Award for "Jumping" on SBS Inkigayo's 600th episode.
