Earlier this month, KARA went around cities in Japan for their fan meeting '~2023 MOVE AGAIN~' that was held in celebration of the group's 15th debut anniversary.
On the day when '~2023 MOVE AGAIN~' took place in Yokohama, KARA was greeted by thousands of Japanese fans.
In return to their loud cheer, they energetically performed the group's hit songs including 'STEP', 'Mister, 'Happy Hour' and more.
During the talk with fans, KARA made themselves as well as all fans emotional by mentioning Koo Ha Ra, who could not be there with them on that day.
Park Gyu-ri said, "I've always wanted to say her name out loud because I know that Ha Ra is up there watching us. This was what I wanted to say. I never really had a chance to publicly say her name, so..."
She paused for a moment, swallowing her sadness before adding, "Even when we don't speak of your name, we're with you at all times."
Park Gyu-ri told them, "It's okay. It's fine to be not okay.", then the five of them hugged together and silently cried for a bit.
Afterward, Han Seung Yeon spoke in a shaky voice, "We've endured this time with each other well, so we know that Ha Ra will be watching us from somewhere."
