    Kerotan reacted to jknlet in [12.10.19] "T-ara's Confession" members crying.. Will Hwayoung's exit be mentioned?   
    The ending song of the T-ara confession program is just so perfect that all queen's must know then lyrics. I listen to the song giving it this meaning. First part is like describing the sadness,those depressing feelings during the scandal and then, is like T-ara saying to fans to trust them, keep follwing them. And second part is like queens saying to T-ara we are here to protect you we won't let "them (haters)hurt you. And last part we follow them and the best part we can trust in them we can feel T-ara's love and T-ara can feel queen's love.
    When darkness falls And surrounds you
    When you fall down,When you're scaredAnd you're lost
    Be brave,I'm coming to hold you now
    When all your strength has gone
    And you feel wrong,Like your life has slipped away
    Follow me
    You can follow me
    And i, i will not desert you now.
    When your fire's died out
    No one's there
    They have left you for dead
    Follow me
    You can follow me
    I will keep you safe, Follow me
    You can follow me,I will protect you
    oh I won't let them hurt, hurt you, no
    Ooh yeah.When your heart is breaking
    You can follow me,You can follow me
    I will always keep you safe
    Follow me,You can trust in me
    I will always protect you, my love. Feel my love Feel my love.

    Kerotan reacted to light-plus in comparing t-ara's controversy with other idols   
    And you forget; Nichkhun''s part of 2PM, a boy group. Kpop is run mostly by fangirls. Kpop fans are also very sexist, whether they realize it or not.
    When a girl does a suggestive dance, netizens call it slutty. When a guy does a suggestive dance, netizens call it sexy.
    When a girl takes a bunch of pictures of herself, netizens call it camera-whoring. When a guy takes a bunch of pictures of himself, netizens call it eyecandy.
    When a girl shows her stomach, netizens call her shameless. When a guy shows his stomach, they say it's drool worthy.
    EXOm Kris's 'bitchface' is sexy, but f(x) Krystal's 'bitchface' is...well, b.itchy.
    When a guy acts cold, they say he's had a bad day. When a girl acts cold, they say she's got a horrible attitude.
    When a Nichkhun made a mistake, netizens said 'it's okay, he'll learn from this!" "Stop hating on my Khunnie, everyone makes mistakes".(No offense to Hottests intended) Maybe him coming clean with lots of solid evidence of both the mistake and him taking a long break off did help. Him having a 'perfect angel' image probably helped him, along with the huge Hottest fanbase. You can tell the biased-ness is obvious.
    When T-ara made their mistake, netizens said 'shun them from the world cuz T-ara are bullies and unworthy'. Then having previous scandals and a crappy company/CEO/PR manager didn't help either. KKS' way of dealing with the situation made even other artists in the Kpop community point their fingers to him instead of T-ara, and when some big people in the kpop world started turning their backs, others did too.
    I guess it's a bit hard to understand. DUI and Bullying are huge no-no's in Korea apparently (a korean friend of mine had to explain this to me xD). Honestly, if T-ara's controversy didn't happen when it did, Nichkyun's DUI incident would have blown up quite a bit.
    IMO, I think that even though Nichkyun's incident was worse (because he willingly drove even though he was drunk), his PR management is amazing (JYP, what else do you expect?) and they dealt with the situation quickly and efficiently.

    Kerotan got a reaction from jessie in [12.09.10] T-ara to release a Special Pictorial Album   
    I think the previous one was the Freedom in Paris photobook, which only had 300 copies. From what I can tell, and what other people are saying, this one has many different places in Europe, so it should be different, but as you said, probably from photoshoots taken near the same time as in Paris. But I'm not sure if any of the Paris photos are in it. I can't wait to see it!

    [12.09.10] T-ara to release a Special Pictorial Album

    Girl Group T-ara will release a limited edition special pictorial album featuring photos taken in Europe on the 25th of September.
    Earlier in April, T-ara departed to Italy and Switzerland, spending 9 days 8 nights there, for the concept planning, directing and photo taking of the said pictorial.
    The 7000 limited release Europe Special Pictorial Album will feature approximately 200pages of pictures of T-ara members, including T-ara’s various hit songs.
    The release of the limited Europe Special Pictorial Album on September 25 sparked a rush of inquiries from abroad, such as Southeast Asia. Including Korea, it is said that the purchase order for the pictorial could reach 65,000.
    On the other hand, T-ara released Sexy Love Music Video on September 3 and it’s maintaining a No.1 position on GOM TV. [Photo Courtesy of Core Contents Media]

    People here at Diadem have come across sources (such as Kqueen's on Twitter) who say it was just a few people who turned off their lights (and not everyone even had a light). Someone said even Allkpop of all places wrote it was only some people, and not the whole crowd (and we know how they like to exaggerate).
    We all know T-ara's tweets damaged their reputation, but I have a feeling this article is trying to blow this out of proportion. And it's likely just anti-fans in the crowd who never liked them in the first place, so who cares really. Someone in the general public obviously still likes them, or 'Sexy Love' wouldn't even be on the charts right now.
    EDIT: And here is an article pointed out by @shawnkang731204 where it says (if I'm reading it right) everyone was singing along and that only "some" people turned off their lights, and otherwise the article says it was a successful performance: http://www.newspim.com/view.jsp?newsId=20120910000010

    That's the first impression I got after watching those 2 videos I recently posted here. I could only here a very few dissatisfied remarks, but that's it.
    It does feel strange for myself after reading that and combining the videos together. It just doesn't seem to match that much.
    I could hear maybe several quick shouts in the distance, but that's it.
    They did show lots of professionalism in this concert performance, which makes me feel so very proud of them.

    But regardless of who went to the site, it still shows that there are people interested in them. Love and Hate is better than no attention because that's when we'll see less of them. Even when the haters come by, they are exposed to the song and it brings along this type of publicity. I think they are ridiculous but they are helping to create more exposure for T-ara. In America, there is a saying, "There is no such thing as bad publicity." ,and I am truly hoping that this whole incident will fade like all things as we focus more on the work the girls produce. Better yet, this has brought on more new fans to help them reach an even higher status in Korea and internationally. The number of haters will fade as it started from baseless rumors anyway, there will still always be haters but the numbers will dwindle and in turn, the exposure has created more awareness about them and their music.

    T-ara release handwritten announcement of apology

    "We write this letter after much deliberation.The past month has felt longer than the time it took us to debut and the time we've promoted under all of your love.First, we would like to honestly apologize for making so many concerned.We admit that we were immature in not being able to resolve our differences in opinions within the group and letting it out publicly, and we are all reflecting on it together.We deeply apologize for acting without thought.If we had understood each other, shared, and acted more maturely, none of this would have happened..We think that thought every day in misery.Looking back, we've always overcome any hardships together while chasing the same dream, and it breaks our heart to think that all of those good memories are being seen in a bad light.We also think that Hwayoung must have gone through a hard time for being misunderstood as being ostracized.We were all surprised at a result none of us thought or wanted and feel upset that we can no longer be together again.We hope that Hwayoung no longer has to face any pain again.We apologize to everyone for concerning everyone with this issue and disappointing those that loved our music.This hardship was an opportunity of learning for us.We are supposed to be the strength of many, and have now learned how much responsibility we have on our shoulders, as well as how responsibly we must act.To our parents, who live for us, and our fans, who will remain by us until the end to love our music...And to everyone we disappointed, we want to work hard so that our apology will be accepted.We are genuinely sorry. We ask that you also give your everlasting support and love to Hwayoung, who must have had a harder time than us.We will always support Hwayoung no matter what.From all of T-ara.

    Kerotan reacted to chloeownsyou in [12.08.24] Haeundae Lover's writer, "T-ara's situation, regretful towards their agency"   
    I think it is not that the company don't want to give explanations. Looking at the way he announced Hwayoung's departure abruptly, giving vague statements, trying to smoke his way through by saying T-ara's Twitter accounts got mass hacked (which is not true) and making a police report (when the police station confirmed he didn'T)..all that he'd done only seems to make the situation worsen. And even if the truth is revealed, people only choose to believe whatever truth that is already deeply embedded in their head. Honestly speaking, what is the right way to solve all these? Standing out to clarify also wrong, hide and drag also wrong. It's a dilemma. It seems like every move taken will get scrutinized. People are just not willing to accept anything yet... even though I very much feel that the 7 girls should just clarify everything themselves and sort things out all at one go in public, but saying this isn't as easy as doing it. i believe that is the best way to put an end to all these, but who is willing to do this. too many red tapes around. they probably feel that there are mines hidden every where on the ground and they are stucked. no idea where to move =.="

At least it sounds like she'll be okay in a physical sense. Hopefully Soyeon can recover mentally and physically quickly. Also hope all the others involved in the accident will be okay.
