History[edit]

Pre-debut[edit]

Somin was previously a member of DSP Media's Japan-based girl group Puretty, which disbanded two years after its debut in 2012.[1] She later joined Kara Project, where she competed to become a new member of KARA and finished in second place.[2] On August 24, 2015, she debuted as leader of DSP Media's girl group April,[3] but she decided to depart from the group on November 9.[4][5]

J.Seph trained for five years, and BM trained for four and a half years under DSP Media. DSP Media planned to debut them in a hip-hop duo, but later the plans changed. Prior to debut, BM was featured in Goo Ha-ra's song "La La La" from her 2015 debut EP Alohara (Can You Feel It?), and was also her dance partner for the music video and live performances of its lead single "Choco Chip Cookies".[6]

The last member of the group was Jiwoo, who had trained under FNC Entertainment for two years and moved to DSP Media in 2016, where she only trained for two months before debuting with KARD.[7]

After its release, the single charted at #1 in 13 countries on iTunes' K-Pop charts and ranked high on main iTunes charts in the U.S., Southeast Asia, and Europe.[13] The group held their first tour, 2017 The 1st Tour "Wild K.A.R.D" , in the United States between May–June 2017.[14][15][16][17]
