Kara's Seung Yeon Is Guilty, plus Secret recover from accident

Just as they were gearing up to begin promoting their new single Talk That, the girls of Secret were involved in a car accident that has put the group on hiatus.

The girls were traveling in a minivan on the highway from Seoul to Jamsil when the vehicle hit a patch of ice on the road causing it to collide with the guardrail. The minivan flipped over and crashed on the side of the road.

Group member Zinger suffered broken ribs in the crash, while the accident aggravated an old injury for Hyosung, who was required to wear a cast on her left foot. Sunhwa and Ji Eun only received minor bruises and bumps.

The girls are recuperating and will be back in action in the New Year.

Christmas in Korea means that the charts are overrun with winter-themed ballads and toe-curling Christmas songs.

Sunny Hill have released their holiday single Goodbye To Romance, while Orange Caramel have teamed up with the boys from Nu'est for their seasonal effort Dashing Through The Snow On High Heels. The video features an alarming amount of wool in the form of mittens, hats and hideous sweaters worn without the slightest shred of irony.

By contrast, Kara's Seung Yeon has gone a bit goth for her solo single Guilty, which you can see below.

The track comes from the Kara Solo Collection album, on which each of the members performs a solo song.

While it makes a change from the relentless tide of Xmas cheesiness, it seems safe to say Amy Lee shouldn't be too worried about Seung Yeon stealing all her fans at this point.

Happy Kpop Saturday!
