Some netizens made fun of the new show's concept while others described the show as "creepy," based on its trailer.

Others posted funny tweets about the show.

There were others who once again revived issues and criticisms about GMA-7's recently-aired fantasy shows.

Despite the negative feedback, there were other netizens who found the concept of the show interesting.

In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) on November 2018, Mika disclosed a few details about the new series.

She said Kara Mia will also depict folklore from the Philippines. 

"Magshe-share kami ng one body at saka magshe-share kami sa mga love interests namin.

"It tackles yung mga folklore dito sa 'tin sa bansa, and very timely yung kwento. Magsu-shooting kami sa Bacolod. Sobrang excited ako, sobrang malaman noong role na nabigay sa akin, so paghahandaan ko siya."

In a conversation with PEP.ph, Kara Mia's program manager, Hazel F. Abonita, disclosed that they took inspiration from a real-life story about twins from another country who share the same body.
