K-pop quartet KARA will officially return to the music scene with a new EP and a showcase next month, its agency said Friday.

KARA, which now consists of the group’s three original members Park Gyu-ri, Hang Seung-yeon and Koo Ha-ra and new member Heo Young-ji, will drop its sixth EP “Day & Night” on Aug. 18 with the album’s showcase to be held the same day.

The showcase, slated to feature KARA’s first performances of tracks from its new EP, will be aired on a special program by the local television network SBS MTV as well as the Japanese broadcaster TBS, according to the group’s agency DSP Media.

The upcoming EP will mark KARA’s new start as a regrouped quartet since two original members, Kang Ji-young and Nicole, left the group to pursue solo careers earlier this year.

New member Heo was added to the girl group after winning the audition program “KARA Project,” which ran on MBC Music until July 1 to select one of seven DSP trainees to be the new face to join KARA.
