It's business as usual for Kara. Nicole Jung and Jiyoung have appeared in public for the first time since news broke of their impending departures from the group.
As they walked through Seoul's Gimpo International Airport last night, October 7, the two dodged questions about 22-year-old Nicole's announcement to leave the group in January and Jiyoung's rumored plans to follow suit next April.
Dressed casually, Nicole wore jeans and a loose flannel shirt as she kept her eyes covered with dark sunglasses. And Jiyoung, 19, wore simple skinny jeans cardigan and cute character bag.
And while the girls are not hiding, mystery does still surround the status of the group, which some outlets report are on the verge of splitting. Since Nicole's announcement, she has since written on Twitter that she would like to remain connected to Kara in some way or another.
"We heard about the relevant writing, but Nicole personally posted it," a DSP spokesman tells Korea's Newsen outlet. "She never consulted us about it, so nothing is known for sure yet."

All of the group's members were at the airport to board a Tokyo-bound flight to continue the Japanese leg of their KARAsia tour. Their second tour of the country kicks off today, October 8, in Yokohama and sees the girl performing in seven more cities.
