After staging the surprise comeback of the century last year thanks to that big lug Youngji, reinvention-dols and Madonnas of Korea KARA are returning with their first original Japanese single 2013’s Christmas classic “French Kiss.”

Their new future chart-topping TRIPLE A-SIDE is titled “Summer Magic / Sunshine Miracle / Sunny Days,” and it will be out on May 5th.

With any luck, it’ll do for KARA in Japan what “Mamma Mia” did for them in Korea.

I’m loving the cheap cover art, especially the denim ensembles which make Seungyeon look like a cross between a ’90s aerobics instructor and a hooker. She reminds me of when Sydney became a prostitute on Melrose Place and then got beat up by the other hookers because she was on their corner, and then Michael found out about it when she was admitted to the hospital and used it to blackmail her.
