As 2009 slowly comes to a close, it's the season of spoils again - with award ceremonies and gayo daejun festivals coming up, who can't be excited? MAMA (MNet Asian Music Awards) has got everyone buzzing about the good and bad, but hey, despite disappointments and boycotts, no one can deny that Korea's got its eyes on some of the performers on MAMA's star-studded guest list.

Kara Honey won as the best dance of the year!
Kara was really pleased and they were so excited with happiness! And this year they had gained alot of popularity overseas!
Kara, one of the sexiest groups of girls out there on the K-Pop scene, apparently has a deceiver in their mist. Who? It's none other than leader Park Gyuri. Now, when you look at this idol talk, sing, and dance; what thoughts run through your head? Sexy, feisty, sizzling hot? These words are no strangers to us when it comes to the oh-so-fierce leader, but apparently her mother thinks otherwise.

In an interview with the SBS E! channel, Gyuri's mother said, "Park Gyuri's real image is the exact opposite of her on-air image. She has a very quiet and calm personality; when she debuted, I was worried about what would happen." She continued on saying, "People ask if Gyuri acts in such a powerful way in her personal life as she does on-air, but the truth is that she's like any other simple daughter who's reserved, kind, humble and very corny."

Could this be true? That begs the question: How many other idols are living double personalities?

We reported earlier that Kara had joined the chicken war among girl groups, as models for COB Chicken.

And the CF has finally been released.

When you first play the CF, you would have thought that you were just watching a clip of Kara doing their trademark butt dance from Mister. The CF finally kicks in with a still of some generic abs and then the chicken at 0.18. It was a smart move to incorporate the butt dance into the CF. Kara will have their final goodbye stage on Inkigayo tomorrow.

After picking up the first 2009 Top 10 award of the night, Kara seems to be in high spirit as they performed their two 2009 hits "Wanna" and "Mister". I've never realized how much I've missed their butt shaking dance until now. I mean the butt shaking part alone is deserving of at least one award.

Here's the video:

With their growing popularity, it really isn't a surprise that girl group Kara has yet again scored another deal! This time, the ladies snagged the second season of Mnet's Crown Bakery. If you recall, another girl group opened up their own bakery shop a while back. It'll be interesting to see how the girls of Kara will differ from the Wonder Girls!

In a nutshell, the Kara girls will be paired with aspiring young patissiers where they will bake different stuff in each episode according to their mission. There will be an elimination round at the end of each episode. The Kara girl whose partner is eliminated will get a new one but will have to start their relationship from scratch. The final survivor at the end of the series gets to win a sum of money.

Last week we saw the smokin' Brown Eyed Girl Ga-In as a pro-gamer and now Kara's Seungyeon makes her debut as a pianist by day, and a hip and trendy DJ by night.

Seungyeon is a cute and bright aspiring pianist, yet she transforms into a sexy and charismatic club DJ inside the booth, showing a very different side of her, especially from what we have known her for.

A staff member from the campaign stated:

"For this set, Seungyeon learned how to DJ from famous DJ PsyTonic and during the filming she showed off her skills, surprising the entire staff."

For those of you who haven't been following this series, these individual music drama's are being released weekly for each member of the Samsung "4Tomorrow project."
