Asian Pop Radio and Aussie Hidden KARDs are excited for the upcoming K.A.R.D concerts in Sydney (April 26th) and Melbourne (April 29th). Are you a Hidden KARD? That is the official fan name for their fanbase! Here are some must know things about the group:
Since their debut in July 2017, the group has been thought of as being unique in South Korean music circles, as they are a co-ed group. The 2 Females and 2 Males, SoMin, JiWoo, BM & J.Sef, are talented trainees that formed through their years learning the idol ropes. All four are incredibly versatile in the industry as they have heavy skill in choreography, songwriting, and composing on top of their amazing vocal skills.
Somin and BM have shown their vocal talent before forming K.A.R.D. Somin was previously a member of the girl group April and BM appearing on Kpop Star. To create a positive buzz before K.A.R.D's debut, DPS Media had the group release a triple song project with Oh NaNa in Dec 2016 being the first song released and featured a “hidden card” singer KARA member Heo Youngji.
K.A.R.D. released the second song in February 2017 with 'Don’t Recall' in Korean and English which was received with positive reviews by both critics and fans alike. The final track from 'Oh NaNa' dropped in April and it was called 'Rumor'. This song skyrocketed to NO 1 on multiple music charts around the world and a tour around America soon followed in preparation for their debut.

July saw the group release their debut EP 'Hola Hola' which featured the title track of the same name and included their previous songs. They headed overseas again, this time visiting cities in Europe before hitting the States again. Their momentum was not slowing down that year as their 2nd EP 'You & Me' dropped in November, featuring the song 'You In Me'.
The group are still considered a rookie group and APR is sure they will be bring a professionally polished musical experience for the Aussie crowd. Be sure to listen to our radio show to hear K.A.R.D’s music and get some practice singing along before they hit our shores.
