Kang Jiyoung, former member of KARA who’s now focusing as an actor, opened up in a recent interview about why her dad will be testifying for Goo Hara‘s brother in their legal fight against their mom about inheritance.
She first opened up about losing Goo Hara and how she hopes everything works out well with her brother’s efforts.
I’m mostly saddened by it all. I’m also very sorry.
But most importantly, I know that her family members are having a more difficult time than I am so I am trying to help them as best as I can.
I hope this situation can be resolved well.

Kang Jiyoung’s father, who has watched the KARA members grow from hopeful idols to legendary stars, decided to testify in court for Goo Hara’s brother.
Kang Jiyoung revealed why her dad decided to help in her brother’s legal fight and hopes that everything will resolve out well.
Since my dad has watched [Hara] grow since she was young, I think he wanted to help her in anyway possible. It’s true that he was worried a lot about it even until the moment he decided to participate. But he’s glad that he can help.
We can’t be sure of what the results will be, but we believe that the events leading up to it is very critical. We hope that with my dad’s testimony, many people will focus on the situation and help resolve the issue well.
