"JUMPING" was released in Japan on November 10 and also in Korea five days later as Kara's fourth mini-album.
Kara composed of five member Gu Hara, Han Seung-yeon, Park Gyu-lee, Kang Ji-young and Nicole debuted in 2007 and produced several runaway hit songs including "Pretty Girl", "Mister<" "Honey", and "Lupin".
The group's Japanese debut came in August this year with their first Japanese single "Mister" which landed at fifth place on both Oricon's daily and weekly chart. Then their succeeding best album "Kara BEST 2007-2010" landed at second on both charts.
