  1. Hey everyone just wanted to say how much of an awesome job you’re doing. I’m glad you know when to take breaks and have time to yourselves. My question is I had stated that BM was their leader and most people believed me… But couple said no way. I almost 99% of the time use only official sources (company page, official Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Naver & Daum Cafe’s, Weibol accounts, etc.) I can’t seem to locate that video you said told he was the leader. Could you please link me or point me in the right direction. Love you all.

  2. Looks like they’re just known as “KARD” now rather than K.A.R.D, I assume it’s because they ended up exceeding everyone’s expectations and they won’t be doing the hidden member thing anymore.

    • I think they use K.A.R.D and KARD interchangeably. I think it really has a lot more to do with the fact that group pronounces their name 카드 and not 케이에이알디 and for hashtaging because they use #KARD and not #K_A_R_D They have been doing that since the beginning. ~James

      • Could be, yeah. Their newest vid on YouTube has their name changed to KARD and most of their official accounts have all dropped the periods in them. Guess we’ll see!

  3. Most sources identify the positions as these…

    J.Seph – Main rapper, vocal (sometimes lead dancer)
    BM – Main dancer, lead rapper, vocal (He is put down as leader here, but K.A.R.D has no leader, as they’ve stated in several variety shows)
    Somin – main vocal, visual
    Jiwoo – lead vocal, main dancer, maknae

    Also, K.A.R.D is not a project group, they are currently on tour and will not be disbanding soon. Youngji is also not considered an official member, she was just featured in one of their songs.

    J.Seph is 178.5 cm, with blood type O, BM is 186 cm with blood type A, Somin is 163 cm with blood type A, and Jiwoo is 165 with blood type A.

    I couldn’t find their weights anywhere, though :/

    • We need an official source, a video posted by DSP media said that BM is the leader so if you can give us a source that says otherwise we will add that, as well as for any of the information that you have given. From the understanding of the original announcements by DSP for the group they had stated 2 things, 1 K.A.R.D was a project group and would only have 3 releases together, and 2 that each realease was intended to have a HiDden Member which is why we originally added Youngji. Obviously things have not worked out that way for either case, and it seems Youngji’s position in the group is a lot like Janey’s was when she was a featured member in D-Unit. ~James

    • Unless Big Mathew is on his Birth Certificiate/Passport/ID I can gaurentee that is not his legal name but just his nickname. We do not include nicknames. It is the same for L.Joe from Teen Top, when he lived in the US his English name was Joe and his friends called him Little Joe, (which is where L.Joe comes from), but neither of those were his name legally, he was still 이병헌. I Am Fairly certain that BM’s name has Matthew in it somewhere, but I don’t know if its his first, middle, 4th or last name. And we don’t have his family name still either, or just a nickname because his Korean name was too difficult for people. ~James

  4. From what I’ve heard, there are three hidden members and after each project single drops there should be a new member revealed, and it’s possible that they will officially debut as 7 members. They shouldn’t be disbanding anytime soon, that would be stupid for DSP to do, and could cost them a lot of money to disband them after 3 songs.

  5. are these the final members or is there more to come?Love there song Oh Na Na very catchy!! Would love the fandom to be either Joker or Wildkard.

    • There will be two more promotions for this group and they will feature two different guest artists – and then from my understanding the group will disband after that.

      • That’s what the company has stated. My guess is that they will create a boy group and a girl group around the members afterwards. Or they may change their minds and keep K.A.R.D going…but for now the company said they would disband after 3 promotions

      • From what I’ve read, this is all predebut promotion? Their having three singles featuring hidden members and then their actually debuting?

      • sigh, knew it. there was a reason why their youtube channel description was ‘Project KARD’

      • Can you please put here the link of this DSP’s statement (when they announced k.a.r.d)??

      • We linked to the companies homepage here on their profile you can check notices there or check korean new sources, but I unfortunately do not have time to go through and refind one of many announcements DSP has made about KARD. If you are worried about my information about their promotions and disbandment rest assured we won’t be moving them to disbanded until they have officially disbanded. If you are worried about why this new hidden song doesn’t have a hidden member (which the company also originally announced would be the case – 3 songs with 3 hidden members) I don’t think there is an article regarding that change
