KARA leader Park Gyuri to have surgery on vocal cords

TOKYO — Park Gyuri, the 23-year-old lead vocalist for popular all-girl Korean group KARA, will have surgery to remove a polyp on her vocal cords on Tuesday, the group’s agency DSP Media announced Monday.

Gyuri had been complaining of a sore throat since last November, DSP said.

The group kicked off their long-awaited Asia tour in Seoul on Feb 18. The tour, titled “KARASIA,” will also see the girls give concerts in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Thailand, as well as a five-city tour of Japan starting April 14.

KARA’s management said Gyuri will be recovered in time for the Japan tour which sees the girls perform in Tokyo, Yokohama, Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka — with two concerts at each venue.

The group has appeared at live events many times in Japan, but they usually only sang one or two songs to promote CDs or to meet and greet fans.
