  1. Hello everyone,

    As you all may have gotten used to over the years, we should have already started preparing for Boram’s birthday project to deliver in March. However, we regret to inform you that we will no longer be participating in birthday projects for the Girls.

    This is due to various reasons including circumstances having changed after T-ara’s switch-over from Core Contents Media to MBK Entertainment. T-ara’s agency switch-over meant new rules and regulations as far as supports and birthday projects went; thus, making it more difficult for us to conduct our birthday projects in the same way as we’ve done so in the past.

    Moreover, demands and expectations in making certain projects/supports possible have become difficult to meet over the past year or so. As such, the Staff of Diadem have made a collective decision to only choose certain supports to prepare for during the year– as opposed to doing supports for everything + birthdays.

    We will continue to prepare anniversary and comeback projects for our Girls whenever they happen. We will also continue to donate rice wreaths in support and to congratulate the Girls for their upcoming drama, movie, and concert projects like we always have done. Having said that, we will still continue to help QUEEN’s around the world reach out to T-ara.

    With these changes, we will start to focus on developing a modern image as well as delivering new and exciting content more fit for QUEEN’s in 2015.

    We hope that you will understand our course of action and that you will continue to support Diadem’s projects in the future. Additionally, we would like to thank all the loyal QUEEN's for endlessly and generously contributing to all our successful birthday projects since 2010; we would not have come this far if it weren't for you.

    Finally, as always, we promise to always work hard in delivering you the best of T-ara– as we have since 2009.

    Thank you.

    – Elly,

  2. [15.01.10] T-ara's Forest construction in Yeouido and opens to the public

    The forest made in T-ara's name now stands complete in Yeouido's National Assembly Station and has opened to the public.

    This forest was funded by T-ara's Korean fansite, T-araDotCom, along with fansites DIADEM, TARA6JAPAN, T-ARACHINA, and T-ARAHK for the group's 5th Debut Anniversary.

    Several countries have contributed to this project, including Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, China, Thailand and Indonesia. The forest houses six trees named after the six members of T-ara; Boram, Qri, Soyeon, Eunjung, Hyomin, and Jiyeon.

    The T-ara Forest project is an eco-friendly place where people can go to relax and is a great way to improve Seoul's urban environment.

    Meanwhile, T-ara landed in Vietnam today (the 9th) to prepare for a fan-meeting they are holding on the 12th of January for Vietnamese QUEEN's.

    ---

    Big thank you's go out to all the QUEEN's that took part in making this project possible!

    Hi guys!

    Last night, I received an update from our Friends in Korea and TreePlanet regarding the construction details of the Forest we sponsored to be built in commemoration of T-ara's 5th Debut Anniversary.

    In our previous update, we've said that the construction will be underway during the Autumn and is set to open for public use by the end of 2014. However, there's been amendments made to the contract and there will be some changes. The full details of the construction plan are outlined as follows:

    KakaoTalk_Photo_2014-11-06-01-32-21

    The forest will now be located near KBS, right above the National Assembly Station in Seoul (as opposed to beside the MNet Complex). The contract drafted for the previous location (around the Digital Media Station) was denied so we were directed to a different place instead. The map above shows the area where our forest will be built.

    T-ara Forest Plans

    Above, you'll see a flat diagram of the plan we have in store for the T-ara Forest. We've included translations to the different plants, flowers, and trees that will be living inside our forest. Plant/tree names without translations are those that we couldn't find English translations to. You can refer to how each plant looks like below (so you can better visualize the forest):

    The construction will start this month (November 2014). We can expect to see the forest fully built by the end of the year or early 2015. When the forest opens to the public, there will be signs around the forest to let visitors know that it was built in celebration of T-ara's 5th Anniversary. Moreover, visitors will know that the forest was fully sponsored to be built by T-ara's fans. TreePlanet is in the process of building the official webpage to go along with the forest. Visitors are able to scan a QR code to view more information about the Forest. This includes all the people and/or websites that teamed up to make the forest happen.

    We will continue to post updates on the forest as we receive them. We would like to thank all our donors and all the QUEEN's that participated, donated, and actively spread the word about our forest project. To recap, we successfully raised almost $9,000.00 with our friends at T-araDotCom, T-ARA6JAPAN, and T-araHK to make this forest come to life; and as you can see from the plan, all the money we've collected are being put towards a great cause!

    If you have any questions regarding the details posted above, please send them over at the comments below. We will try our best to answer your questions.


  4. Ordered, but not sure how the shipping will work later? Are we getting contacted through the paypal payment email?

     

    If you've ordered, you're most likely covered for shipping. If there are discrepancies and we have to ask more money, we will do so later on. But the shipping costs are all dealt with through your transaction with the store ^^

     

    How do we know if we got one :'(

     

    I had to pay through debit card not paypal. 

     

    Also Elly I love you. And you too craZy and just everyone here. I'm so glad I was able to get this album!!!

     

    tumblr_mfctortyBx1rudls9o4_250.gif

     

     

    thank you so much Elly :3 i really appreciate it

    specially cause i didn't want to buy it from kpopmart haha

     

    I'm glad you guys benefited from what we did. It was all a group effort ^^ We hope we can keep doing this for you guys for a long time!

     

    Wow... sold out already? 

    Congrats to the people who got one.  :)

     

    Yes, it sold out really quickly. However, we're trying to secure a little bit more copies for those that weren't able to catch the pre-sale. We'll keep everyone updated!


  5. 34598735893.jpg


    You can secure your very own copy of T-ara's limited edition, And&End EDMCLUB Edition album through Diadem!

    We will be releasing a super limited number of album units (25 copies) in our store tonight at 11:00 PM EST/7:00 PM PST. If you are interested in participating, please read on for some more details.

    We are marketing this pre-sale towards North American QUEEN's, mainly; however, if you live outside of North America but still wish to order with us, we are able to ship internationally as well.

    There will be various shipping options available for QUEEN's all around the world; but due to the nature of our pre-sale, you must agree to pay the full-cost of the album and shipping. If you do not live in North America, it is probable that shipping fees may be higher for you.

    Please keep in mind that we have 25 copies exclusive to Diadem. Orders will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis; as such, any orders beyond the 25th person will be fully refunded.

    At the same time, we will be imposing a 1-quantity limit per person for this pre-sale. This is to give other QUEEN's a chance to have the LE as well. Anyone who orders more than one album will be refunded. We hope that QUEEN's will cooperate with this rule as getting your order refunded means losing your secured copy of T-ara's EDM album.

    We are not making a profit out of this pre-sale. It is simply a way for us to help some QUEEN's out in securing a copy of T-ara's limited edition album. All the fees we charge on the store will go towards securing and shipping the album to your door.


  6. This product is already sold out.

  8. [QUEEN’s 2기] Pay for your package shipping fee through Diadem

    queenshipping.png

    As most of you might have already heard, CCM has finally started to arrange shipping for International fans' QUEEN's membership packages. They have asked QUEEN's that registered for official fanclub membership to wire transfer $6.00 US as a shipping & handling fee.

    We and CCM understand that international wire transfer fees vary per bank and that they can be relatively expensive depending on your bank. So we've arranged something to minimize the hassle for International QUEEN's. If you're interested, you can submit your $6.00 payment and information to us here at Diadem and we will forward it directly to CCM's fanclub representative. That way, we can all work together and save a lot of money! This involves no additional cost or fees!

    To do so, please send $6.00 US to email address, fanclubfee@tiaradiadem.com via PayPal. Upon doing so, please complete and send the following form to fanclubfee@tiaradiadem.com:

    Name:

    Contact Number:
    Passport Name:
    Address to send QUEEN's 2기 Package:
    E-mail address used to pay:

    When sending your $6.00, please make sure to pay for all the fees to prevent deductions from happening. We will reply to the email you send us regarding your payment confirmation.

    We will be accepting payment and forms for shipping QUEEN's packages until September 29th 2014 KST.

    You do not have to be a Diadem member in order to send your payment through us. Please feel free to tell your other registered QUEEN's friends to pay through us or to send their payments in when sending yours (just tell them to send us a separate e-mail under their name for their address and contact number information).

    ***

    PLEASE KEEP IN MIND: We are not collecting money nor accepting the form displayed above to register new official QUEEN's. Registration for 2nd batch of official QUEEN's members ended last year. This is only for those that have already paid for the initial fee last year and are ALREADY part of the 2nd batch of official QUEEN's. Additionally, we are only acting as middlemen to send in your payments to CCM. We are not responsible for the final shipping and handling of individual QUEEN's packages.

    EDIT: DO NOT REPLY TO THE FANCAFE WITH YOUR FORM YET. Your payments will be sent to CCM all at the same time. Please reply to the fancafe post AFTER we have sent the money to CCM. We will make an update on our Twitter account once we’ve sent the money so please check back on our Twitter regularly.
    Additionally, as it may be necessary later, please make sure you have been levelled up on the daum cafe to 퀸즈2기. Check your profile in the side bar, if it reads 정회원, it means you were not levelled up. So as long as your application form was confirmed, please make a post here and explain your situation (you may write it in English.) Provide a screenshot of your form and the response for proof. They’ll fix it up for you asap.
    If you have other questions or concerns, feel free to comment below or mention us on Twitter (@tiaradiadem)

  9. [14.06.14] Jiyeon, “My satisfaction towards my solo promotions is 50 out of 100″.

    download.jpeg

    Jiyeon sat with TVDaily on the 13th to express her feelings towards her first solo promotions for ’1MIN1SEC’ coming to an end.

    “Even though my solo promotions are already coming to an end next week, I was [really happy] to receive a lot of support and interest [from the public]. I’m happy because I’m able to finish my promotions in a good light,” Jiyeon said as she spoke with TVDaily before a music program broadcast.

    “Because this is my first time [doing solo promotions], I’m going to give myself 50 points out of 100,” Jiyeon said after she was asked to rank her solo promotions. Additionally, she says, “In the event that I’m given another chance to do solo activities, I would like to be able to fill the remaining 50 points, [to deliver a perfect performance].”

    “At first, it’s hard not to worry about [going solo]. As someone who normally performs in a group, doing activities alone like this can sometimes make you lonely,” Jiyeon says as she recalls her promotions when they first started, “But then, being inside the waiting rooms and being able to promote solo along with my other unnis (Jeon Hyosung, etc.) helped me get to know them better and become closer with them. Hanging out in the waiting rooms with them was a lot of fun.”

    As Jiyeon’s solo promotions comes to an end, she tells us that T-ara is working on their comeback. “We’re currently learning Chinese during our downtime,” she says, “Since we are preparing to promote [there as well], we want to equip ourselves with the basics so we can learn more about China. We’re also learning how to ride skateboards (?) for exercise.”

    We made it, guys! Happy fifth birthday to us!

    This is such an insane milestone post to be writing right now. I've been sitting here for about an hour now trying to figure out how to write this post; I can't believe that Diadem has been up and running for five years already! It certainly doesn't feel like it's been that long!

    I was just 15 years old when I started working on bringing Diadem to life. I had no expectations that Diadem would become the site and community that it is today. I just wanted to create a place that fans could go to to learn about T-ara and hang out. At five years, it feels crazy that we're still going strong and we continue to improve and become a fansite that keeps working harder to support and love T-ara.

    I was just talking to Meg (qridoesntcare) about having to write this post out and she said, “Wow, five years, Elly; that's pretty impressive," and thinking about it based on time, I can agree that it is pretty impressive. Bragging aside, not a lot of sites do well and get to the five year mark, but we did. I can't say that running and keeping Diadem up for this long has been an easy feat. It wasn't always smooth-sailing. There have been many times that I've thought about giving it all up because of all the challenges. I opened Diadem in 2009 while being so young with no skills in anything, no money, and with no one to help me with the tasks involved in running a site. And looking back, I can really say that Diadem's changed so much and come so far.

    gallery_1_271_28549.jpg

    Diadem's first milestone: Boram's thank you autograph from 2010 Birthday Project

    Now, I look at all our accomplishments and I think to myself, “Wow." Mainly because we have achieved so much and have celebrated so many milestones over the years -- some of them, I didn't even dream of attaining as the mere 15-year-old that created Diadem. At the same time, despite all of the shortcomings we've had as a community, despite the things that I've lacked as a leader, we, as Diadem and QUEEN's, were able to stay strong until this day.

    Five years is a really long time. I don't believe that any amount of words can truly express how grateful I am to our hardworking staff members and members for all the love and support through the years. If it weren't for your participation in Diadem and your encouraging attitude towards everything we do, I wouldn't be sitting here writing this post for our fifth year together. I'm naturally not great at expressing my thoughts and emotions in any form, but everyone here has been so great and I hope that we can continue this journey for longer. I know that I can look forward to bigger and greater achievements with Diadem and that we can continue to be a site that does everything for the love of T-ara.

    On that note, I'd like to let the members of Diadem know that: as always, the staff members of Diadem will always work harder to meet your expectations and work with you hand-in-hand in reaching out to T-ara and their members.

    Here are some messages that a few of our Staff Members have for Diadem regarding our 5th Birthday!

    Oops, I saved writing my message until last minute.. so it'll be a kind of messy message.. but I am so happy that today is our five year milestone.

    I am so proud of Diadem and the members and staff who have made this website possible since the beginning! There are so, so many people who have dedicated so much time to this website and for T-ara. Every thing that Diadem has become is because of the support received from QUEEN'S and people who have volunteered their time and effort.

    I have had so many fun memories being part of Diadem's history for the past (almost five) years. I am member 200 or something and when I joined, that was all I was (a member!). I didn't know anyone here and like Elly, I became part of Diadem when I was at a young age. I was only 13!! Back then, we were still called Diadem5, not TiaraDiadem. Despite that, this site has been such a big part of my life and brings me and so much others a lot of happiness and things that we look forward to every day. I always have fun here.

    I love being part of such a fun community and fandom and I love Diadem. I love providing information to QUEEN'S and sharing a common interest with so many other people (the interest being loving T-ara). Although I've never seen T-ara live and I don't know if I'll ever have the opportunity, I feel content knowing that I have made so many friends because of T-ara. I'm looking forward to the future for Diadem because I know we have a lot in store for QUEEN'S.

    HAPPY FIVE YEARS!! :)

    - Nathaniel, Administator

    One thing I feel proud of about Diadem is how we're a community that was there for T-ara even before they debuted. As if standing ready to support them all the way. Though I wasn't here since the beginning, I'm overjoyed and grateful I was able to become a part of the family.


    I'm forever thankful for all the memories and wonderful moments I've experienced with our members, my friends from all over the world. We've been through so much on our journey, sticking together and with T-ara through thick and in. I now we will all continue forward, becoming better and stronger.

    Thank you to Elly for bringing us all together. Thank you to Nate for putting us forward as the leading English news source for T-ara. Thank you to every single hard working staff member for all the effort they put into making Diadem what it is. I am forever eternally appreciative of our staff.

    Last not but certainly not least, thank you to the dearest members of our community, without your consistent support for us, we truly wouldn't have made it thus far.

    Happy Birthday Diadem.

    Cheers to the 5 great years and counting!

    To be constantly updated with news, improvement and outlook for the forum, makes me proud to be a member and a staff here. I joined the forum in early 2011 but started to get active only in mid of 2011. I thought of only getting to know T-ara a little more. Just a little. But because of the forum's activities and members, T-ara has become a part of my life. I'm not sure if I know every detail about the girls, but I have most definitely amplified my understanding and love for them. Of course, they keep growing.

    Heaps of discussions can be seen and participated. From the silly and cute things T-ara does to some of the most intense topics, haha! Also through these discussions, getting to know the members and staffs have been both fun and interesting. Different sides and feelings of being a Queen's. I get to look at and understand things in various ways.

    Overall, I'm glad to be a member and staff here. A joyous and sometimes, a roller coaster ride. However, a wonderful experience. Thank you, Diadem!

    Happy 5th Anniversary!

    First of all, HAPPY 5TH ANNIVERSARY TO DIADEM !!!

    Being a Diadem member and subsequently a Diadem staff member has been one of the best experiences I've ever had as a T-ara fan. Diadem has basically become an addiction to me. A place where I catch up with T-ara's news and a place where I get to know people from all walks of life with different opinions and personalities. I remember those days when the forum was down for layout changes, I was practically refreshing the webpage everyday hoping that Diadem will finish its upgrades. So I would like to thank everyone here for making Diadem such a great place to stay and I hope that Diadem will continue to be the best channel for Queen's to come together and support T-ara. Please forgive me for slacking as a staff. I will work harder in future. Please look forward it.

    I am very proud to be parts of this forum and seeing Diadem grow from day to day.
    Thanks to Diadem for giving us the latest updates on our girls and also thank you to everyone for the continuous support.

    I love you,Diadem.
    Happy 5th Anniversary^^

    Aw, heck it! Can't hold my feels anymore. Sorry, but I'll take back that 6th may promise. embarrassed1-onion-head-emoticon.gif?129

    Diadem, oh Diadem...well frankly I don't know much since I've only been here for six months (seems rather uncanny that I was able to join the staff in such short time is it? lol). But I do know this...Diadem is DA BOMB. Seriously, you guys are de best! I can't say how much I love you guys! Really, who wants a free hug? lmao.

    Ok, back to business. Hmmmm, I'm pretty new here but it certainly didn't take long until I get used to it. Not sure why, but I just thought it's because this forum feels homey right off the bat. Needless to say, I love T-ara. I friggin love them and stans each of its member since the very first day I heard of them (2013. lol) So yeah, first logical thing to do was to google which community to join, and Diadem came on top, so here I am!

    Half a year, and I had so many memories here. Even when T-ara is no more, I think I will always remember my time here (Ok, someone stops me before I'm getting way too sappy). Hmmm, can't think of anything else. Just keep doing what you guys do. We might not be the biggest (and I don't give a bullcrap, pardon the language), or whatever, but I'm sure as hell I'm not the only one who thought of this place as home. We fought for our home, right? So here's to T-ara, to my fellow staff, and to all the members who kept this forum a lively place. I love you guys! There I say it, now cheers! :lol:

    Happy 5th Anniversary my lovely Diadem! <3<3<3

    Happy 5TH anniversary Diadem!!

    Yeah, already five years and i only saw two of them. In these years diadem grow a lot, and it's members are also closer now.

    It was a great time, supporting T-ara, providing news and making new friends. Let's keep working hard!

    – Robbe_881, Moderator

    Dang, 5 years huh? I only joined back in December '12, and then shortly after became Staff.

    And believe me 5 years is definitely a HUGE milestone, I'd definitely say 1, 5, 7 are good milestones for any particular group/community. Speaking from experience myself as my own fansubbing group only just celebrated our 7th Anniversary in April. Although that's all it is, just a fansubbing group, not so much a community for that fandom. Unlike Diadem where it's a home to fellow Queen's to discuss their love for T-ara. This is definitely quite the accomplishment.

    I may not be that active via the forums, but I'm still grateful, despite joining the fandom late, that I was given the opportunity to not only help out in the subbing department, but aslo to have made some connections with the staff to participate in some events as well. Won't go into details about those and leave those stories for later purposes if given the opportunity (Member Spotlight / etc.).

    So 5 years, and here's to many more to come in the future! I'll do my best to not only provide subtitles when available but to also contribute where I am needed/able to contribute. Not only that, but also to possible hopes of future developements towards CCM/T-ara in getting more recognition, possible fanmeets and dare I say it!? Possibly more visits from not just N4, but T-ara to the states?! Eh eh? It's always a possibility.

    Going to wish Diadem a happy 5th birthday/anniversary and shall continue to cherish it as it's definitely provided me with opportunities I'd never get if not for it. As well as introducing me to some spectacular people (You know who you are, if I've met you in person, you're one of them!).

    Happy fifth anniversary to Diadem!

    I'm just a normal member and a subber but joining the diadem family is the best! Knowing T-ara even more, get to know more Queen's and even making some awesome friends! Besides being a source for updates about T-ara, it also became a place for people to hang around haha :D i have only been here for like...13 months i think? its really great being here, people here are warm and stuffs lel. I RUFF YOU DIADEM! <3

    When I’ve discovered T-ara about two years ago, I was searching for a fansite which could provide actual information on T-ara activities and eventually I’ve found Diadem. It was exactly what I was looking for. Translated T-ara news, T-ara schedule, photos from various events, performances, and even T-ara videos subbed by Diadem very own subbing team. But what I liked the most about Diadem and what makes it so special is the dedication of the people who are working to support T-ara. Many birthday and support projects for T-ara as well as charity projects on behalf of T-ara were successfully implemented with the help of the people of the Community.

    Thanks to all the staff members for your hard work and to the people who helped Diadem throughout all these years.

    Diadem support for T-ara is invaluable. I’m proud to be a part of the Community.

    Happy 5th Anniversary Diadem!

    5 years already huh? I’ve only been around for probably a year or two. T-ara was the first group who introduced me to kpop, and was the main reason why I discovered Diadem and the awesome people in it and behind it. I met friends and a whole bunch of other dorks and crazy weirdoes who shares the same love for the girls with me. And I owe that to Diadem. Cheers to Diadem for gathering us Queen’s altogether! To the staff, kudos for an awesome job with all the projects, translations and everything else that runs in this site. Let’s go 5 years and onwards guys!

    Happy 5th Anniversary!

    – Aly, Writer

    5 years, man, that's a huge accomplishment!! :D
    I'm really thankful to Diadem. If wasn't for it -searching, collecting, uploading photos- I probably wouldn't be here today, I wouldn't be so into T-ara, k-pop and photos as I 'm now. You guys got me addicted to this group of girls, and I blame you all for it! I wouldn't also have met many interesting people, even when I'm not that active/talkative here on the forums I lurk a lot though!! All of you guys are amazing, really! :) :)
    Although I'm not a member from the very beginning, I joined on Sep. of 2012 and became part of the staff on the beginning of 2013, I'm very proud Diadem has reached this far, and, I'm certain, will go way further!!!
    Happy 5th Anniversary!!

    5 YEARS.
    I've only been here for a year.

    So, Diadem is already 5 years old huh. I joined Diadem in mid 2013, but I was a fan in 2011. How did I become a fan? Well, I watched Bo Peep Bo Peep MV at the age of 9. YES. Sexy version. Deal with it. 9 year olds can enjoy sexiness too.

    I became an Uploader in February 2014, and I'm still a newb. Diadem has got me many friends, and they are really nice too, except for a few who... Yeah, we bully each other. I have a few people here who I look up to. Their names shall be a secret.

    People in school think that I'm weird for loving Kpop, especially loving T-ara, who they call "the nobodies". So Diadem is basically a place for me to share my thoughts, especially at the Shoutbox.

    Diadem always provides the latest updates (and gossips).

    And now, Diadem is already 5. Happy 5th Anniversary Diadem!

    I love you Diadem!

    I will work a lot harder next time, less slacking, promise.
    – Zelo, Uploader
    I feel so proud to be a member of this incredible community.
    A lot of groups never get to see five years, and even more groups aren't lucky enough to have such devoted fans for five years either. Through good times, and bad, Diadem hasn't faltered. Knowing directly how much effort is being put into each and every project, post, stream, translation, FREAKING VIDEO GAME is mind blowing. I'm so impressed. I've been impressed since day 1 and every day it keeps getting better.
    Have a glorious anniversary Diadem, you've earned it.

    Happy 5th Anniversary Diadem!

    Its been a long journey that's had its share of happy and sad moments. I'm proud how far we've come and how as a community, we've weathered everything that's come at us up until now. I've met so many great people since I became part of the Diadem family. Its been an honor working for Diadem and seeing all of our ideas come to fruition. I never thought I'd be so actively involved with a KPOP fandom until I joined Diadem. I think the biggest thing that keeps me coming back to Diadem is the community. I can safely say that if not for every member, every forum post, every tweet, Diadem wouldn't be where it is today. I hope we'll continue to support the girls for many more years to come and look forward to seeing Diadem continue to grow with each passing year.

    <3

    PS: Thanks for giving me a reason to go to Korea!

    One year ago I wouldn't even dream that I was going to get into Kpop, let alone be a stan for a group that had the ups and downs that T-ara had. But now, looking back I can safely say that I have no regrets about finding this part of the music industry, with the thing keeping everything in place being Diadem. I found this community through dumb luck one year ago and not a day has passed where I haven't checked it more than once. A place where people can discuss, comment or just spazz over something they all like is a very good place to be a part of. Subbers sub, administrators administer, uploaders upload and the 5 year old community keeps trucking forward, through good and bad times. Having become a part of the staff team just a mere two months ago, I wish I had found this place sooner, but I think I speak for all when I say that, as long as T-ara are out there being awesome, we're not going anywhere.

    I’ve been with Diadem since Feb 2010… that seems so long. It wasn’t long before I was made a subber, and encoding videos on a regular basis. Thanks Nate and Elly for giving me such a great opportunity to work and improve my skills and give back to a wondrous K-pop community… gosh 3 subbing logo changes!
    I’m all over the place in fandoms, varies stages of duress in my career and life and I haven’t been as active around Diadem as I used to be in the past, I hope I have done well enough for the members and fans. I worked with some great subbers in the past and present. Thanks to Nate for always being behind me, and Elly for accepting that romantic dinner date with me, I just know it will be great. Zee, who is pretty fetch as well. There has been up and downs with T-ara, K-pop, and even Diadem but still going strong. Way to go guys.
    Five years… That’s quite an achievement and of course I think it’s only fair to thank the members and fans for keeping it going this long. Their donations, love and support for Diadem and T-ara are what make it possible. Thanks people. You are so fetch.
    Happy 5th Anniversary Diadem.
    - Jimmy, Subbing Coordinator
    It's amazing how long Diadem as a community has persisted alongside T-ara. I remember when I first joined Diadem around April 2010 and so much has happened since then. Most of all, I'm thankful of all the friendships I've made with some of the staff and members (except Zee). I'm glad we have so many people who care enough to keep this community lively and welcoming and hope we make a lot more memories together.
    Happy 5th Diadem.

  11. Well cough cough I just saw this.

    But anyhow, like everyone's said, I'm from Toronto in Canada (it's the country above the United States on the map). I'm a Graphic Design student, 20 years old. Kyul and Hyom are my favourite T-ara members but weirdly enough, my T-ara OTP is SoKyul. But I liked Eunjung first and made Diadem PRETTY MUCH because of her /bricked for switching biases/.

    I'm not sure what else to say about myself.

    ... And lol I'm still crying at "Mama God" and the fact that you guys totally know my daily schedule (ie. The fact that I'm in school like, 50 hours in a week) -.-"

    And yeah, I love Z.

    당신은 날 너무 아프게만 하네요

  14. Korean Lyrics



    안돼요 아파요 제발 이러지 마요


    나도 알고 보면


    작고 여린 여자랍니다


    나빠요 미워요 정말 안보이나요


    나를 봐요 당신과 함께


    사랑하고 싶은데


    왜 웃는데 눈물이 날까


    난 있는데 넌 어딜 찾니


    나를 봐요 뒤에서 널 부른다


    사랑해요 사랑해요 그대만을


    아픈 내 사랑이죠


    곁에 있지만 가질 수는 없는 사랑


    그대만을 당신만을 사랑해요


    아픈 사랑 때문에 멈춰지지 않아


    자꾸 눈물이 나요 사랑해요


    알아요 싫어요 이런 내가 미워요


    이상하죠 눈을 감아도


    그대가 보이네요


    넌 언제쯤 내게 닿을까


    네 입술은 누굴 부르니


    나를 봐요 뒤에서 너를 부른다


    사랑해요 사랑해요 그대만을


    아픈 내 사랑이죠


    곁에 있지만 가질 순 없는 사랑


    그대만을 당신만을 사랑해요


    아픈 사랑 때문에 멈춰지지 않아


    자꾸 눈물이 나요


    한번만 돌아봐 한번만이라도 날


    제발 친구라는 말은 말아줘


    사랑해요 사랑해요 왜 못 듣죠


    말을 해야 아나요


    곁에 있는 난 우정이 아닌 사랑


    그대만을 당신만을 사랑해요


    아픈 사랑 때문에 멈춰지지 않아


    자꾸 눈물이 나요 사랑해요



  15. Korean Lyrics



    넌 내가 생각하는 로미오


    언제까지 날 애태우오


    내 가슴이 타 들어가


    Please tell me luv luv


    예뻐 보이려고 화장도 하고


    좋아하던 옷을 입고 나왔죠


    더 잘 보이려고 긴 생머리도


    짧게 자르고 나온 거 아나요


    왜 나를 보고 웃고 있는 건가요


    내 맘 또 흔들리는데


    그대도 나를 사랑하는 건가요


    나와 같은 느낌인가요


    사랑에 빠져버릴 때


    그 느낌 아니까


    설레였던 그 느낌 나니까


    사랑에 빠져버려서


    아플걸 아니까


    겁이 나서 난 말도 못하죠


    어떡해 뚜루루뚜뚜


    아파서 뚜루루뚜뚜


    내 맘 알고 있다면


    먼저 말을 해줘요


    너 때문에 뚜루루뚜두


    슬퍼서 뚜루루뚜두


    혹시 나만의 착각인가요


    뚜루루뚜두


    잘 들어갔냐던 그 짧은 문자에


    내 마음이 또 설레여 오네요


    주말엔 뭐해요 밥은 먹었나요


    이런 얘기 뭐 때문에 하나요


    이건 아니란 생각만


    하루에 수 백 번


    그래 놓고 또 주위를 두리 번


    기다림에 기대어 하루를 다 쓰고


    미워하기만을 여러 번


    헷갈리게 하는 그런 모습들이


    지옥 같은 그런 소용돌이


    어서 빨리 내게 말해줘요


    Don't tell me why


    사랑에 빠져버릴 때


    그 느낌 아니까


    설레였던 그 느낌 나니까


    사랑에 빠져버려서


    아플걸 아니까


    겁이 나서 난 말도 못하죠


    어떡해 뚜루루뚜뚜


    아파서 뚜루루뚜뚜


    내 맘 알고 있다면


    먼저 말을 해줘요


    너 때문에 뚜루루뚜두


    슬퍼서 뚜루루뚜두


    혹시 나만의 착각인가요


    뚜루루뚜두


    난 겁이 많아요 눈물도 많아요


    왜 이런 나를 모르는 거죠


    그만 흔들어요 더 아프지 않게


    어서 말해줘요


    어떡해 뚜루루뚜두


    아파서 뚜루루뚜두


    내 맘 알고 있다면


    먼저 말을 해줘요


    너 때문에 뚜루루뚜두


    슬퍼서 뚜루루뚜두


    혹시 나만의 착각인가요
