Back in Japan, anime has penetrated all forms of mainstream and adult entertainment in Japan. Many successful Japanese music artists (hip-hop, rock, pop, etc.) have contributed to the soundtracks of many anime series and full-length movies. The popularity has even expanded to South Korea's mainstream entertainment industry. Many Korean musical artists, especially K-Pop idols, have found success in Japan's entertainment industry.
In the case of this K-Pop group named KARA, it has been announced that that is K-Pop group will be getting its own anime series called “Kara the Animation.” The members of KARA will be voicing their anime counterparts. Instead of being members of the K-Pop group KARA, the members will have everyday jobs. One member will be working as a cop, another will be working as a cruise ship captain, while another will be working as a private security guard.
When KARA starts airing, it will air in both Japan and South Korea. If you are fans of KARA and anime, you can expect to see the first episode sometime in Spring 2013.
In the Asian entertainment industry, it's not uncommon for musical artists to get regular roles in movies and TV shows. In the case of South Korea, there are some examples. One example is K-Pop artist Krystal Jung who is a member of the girl-group called f(x). Recently, Jung had a starring role in the Korean sitcom series "High Kick 3: Revenge of the Short-Legged."
