In 1982, Kim Kwangsoo began as the manager of famous singer Gim Wanseon and soon help make Jo Sungmo's succesful career.

After T-ara's consistent string of hits and being active constantly, the tables have turned against the stubborn Kim Kwangsoo.
Followed by, "I thought T-ara would first have to become a group receiving interest worldwide and have a stronger backing, which is why there was no plans of establishing an official fanclub. Every opportunity that T-ara has, they would tell me how much they wanted an official fanclub."
Kim said that after "Roly-Poly", "Cry Cry" and now "Lovey-Dovey", he feels as if T-ara is a really popular girl group. "For the first time in 30 years, I've been beaten by my artists and decided to create an official fanclub for T-ara."
In addition he said, "Step by step, we'll begin to form the large fanclub that'll be ready by summer. T-ara members are still unaware that I made this decision of an official fanclub, so I hope it's a good holiday present for T-ara."
