Kara member Goo Hara's official birthday picture has been revealed!

On January 13, Kara's youngest member Kang Ji Young tweeted, "Hara Unnie (term addressed to an older female) Happy Birthday~" along with a picture.

Although the picture shows a bare faced Hara wearing just a plain cotton T-shirt and a pair of jeans, it has been garnering attention for her radiant, innocent beauty. Her face is posed in a cute expression, as if she is about to blow out candles, and she stands holding a delicious looking fruit cake.

Netizens who saw the picture commented, "Happy Birthday," "Even though you're wearing just a T-shirt you stand out," "Even though you're not dressed up you are very pretty," and "So pure looking."

Happy Birthday Goo Hara!
