    luis_beto reacted to vancew90 in [15.09.15] Hyomin throws a perfect first pitch for the Pittsburgh Pirates   
    On Septmeber 13 (US Time), South Korean girl group T-ara's Hyomin attended the Major League Baseball tournament between Pittsburgh Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers. She was invited by baseball player Kang Jung Ho to throw the first pitch for Pittsburgh Pirates and garnered a lot of attention.

    Hyomin wore a baseball top with a pair of white skinny jeans, showing off her perfect body. It is worth mentioning that Hyomin's baseball pitching skills were comparable to a professional baseball player and garnered a lot of attention from the baseball fans watching the game. Hyomin successfully threw the ball into Kang Jung Ho's hands. They received great cheers and applause from the audience. Hyomin is the first South Korean idol to have the honor of making the first pitch for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

    Previously, Hyomin shared pictures of her baseball practices back in South Korea on her personal Instagram account, garnering lots of attention and responses.

    luis_beto reacted to vancew90 in [15.08.17] A detailed analysis of T-ara’s immense popularity in China   
    T-ara’s immense and unparalleled popularity in China is quite different from their situation in South Korea. Chinese fans value T-ara very dearly and Queen’s are in an intense competition with Beyonce’s fans in the US Billboard’s 'Fan Army Face-off 2015.'
    In this international fan army face-off, the Chinese Queen’s contribution cannot be dismissed in the Queen’s overwhelming lead. Because of the controversy that T-ara was involved in, they received negative comments from their locals and also find it hard to maintain their popularity overseas. However, T-ara have always been the top in China, be it album sales or music chart rankings. Therefore, this article will be analysing the reasons behind T-ara’s immense popularity among the Chinese fans.
    Step 1: T-ara’s press conference in October 2014 regarding advancement into China
    T-ara’s official advancement into China for activities was on October 13th, 2014. T-ara’s members expressed the goals they wish to achieve during their Chinese activities. However, T-ara already had the love and support of Chinese Queen’s beforehand. Through their showcases and concerts in China in 2013, they had shortened the distance between themselves and their fans.
    T-ara had attracted about 100 different media outlets to their press conference. They even appeared on variety shows hosted by China MTV and were interviewed by many media outlets.
    Step 2: Collaboration with the “Chinese PSY” in November 2014
    T-ara really boosted their popularity in China with their collaboration with the “Chinese PSY,” Chopstick Brothers. T-ara brought their popularity among Chinese fans to the next level with their collaboration with Chopstick Brothers to remake a Korean version of 'Little Apple.'
    The Korean version of 'Little Apple' was sitting on the #1 spot for 16 consecutive weeks and the MV managed to get 500 million views, making it the most popular song in 2014.

    Step 3: The secret behind maintaining the popularity - releasing Chinese versions
    Whenever T-ara releases a Korean song in Korea, they will also release a Chinese version. This allowed both T-ara and their fans know that they think of each other, and creates an emotional connection. This is one of the secrets behind maintaining their immense popularity.
    Starting from Number 9, till Eunjung’s solo recently, and finally the current So Crazy, T-ara would release Chinese versions of their title songs and even Chinese MVs.
    T-ara’s popularity is closely linked to their catchy songs that captivated the hearts of Chinese Queen’s. By producing Chinese versions, they are able to capture the fans’ hearts. Combined with easy sing-along verses, addictive tunes etc, T-ara’s songs enjoy great popularity in China. The effort to release Chinese versions of their songs touched the fans’ hearts, increasing their fondness of T-ara.
    A representative expressed thoughts about this analysis: "the Chinese versions of T-ara’s songs play a huge role in their popularity in China. During concerts, when the Chinese versions are sung, the whole venue will sing along with T-ara. Combined with melodies unique to T-ara’s songs, T-ara’s popularity among Chinese fans skyrockets."

    luis_beto reacted to T-ara Trans in [15.06.26] Boram shares her stories about her family, T-ara, herself and much more in an interview with BNT   
    T-ara’s cute jewel Boram who’s always been hidden between the members of T-ARA, maybe because of her small height. She, who said it was her first time having a photoshoot of her own, was a little nervous; however, she was certainly full with anticipations.
    We wanted to find the hidden side to Boram. Because she undeniably looks like a small lady on the outside, yet is is a full-fledged mature ‘woman’.
    In the first concept in which she’s wearing a yellow dress, she looked like a girl who accidentally ended up on the red carpet of an award ceremony. With her cute, pretty, mysterious, doll-like appearance and her slender legs, she welcomed the wide world. The second concept showcased her charms perfectly. She expressed the feeling of being on a trip to a small and adorable world, just like that of Alice In Wonderland.
    In the third concept near a dart game board, we can see Boram’s facial expressions showing her enjoying herself. She delivered an unfamiliar yet interesting feeling. The last concept was the concept of a mature woman which Boram’s never tried before. As she exuded the mature and womanly side that was hidden inside of her, we were able to discover a confident and elegant Boram.
    During the interview, she couldn’t hide her awkwardness when she said “During interviews, the members are always the ones who do (all the talk)…I’m not sure what am I supposed to say.”
    Soon enough, she started telling her own stories in a relaxed and composed manner. Saying that it is her role to work harder, that she should go forward slowly without being greedy.
    You said this is your first time having a photoshoot of your own

    I always did (phoot)shoots with the members. The other members have had lots of photoshoots by themselves. Jiyeon and Eunjung had BNT photoshoots as well. When I received the photoshoot offer, I insisted that I wanted to do it.
    How does it feel now that you did it 

    It’s a completely new experience to me. I had no idea about anything but it was really fun. If I get to have such an opportunity again, I think I’d be less unexperienced than now. I actually had a fixed thought. I thought that if a certain concept doesn’t suit me, then it will never look good on me no matter what. But now that I got to try different concepts, it’s really fun.
    You’re 30 years old now. Now you must have grown sick of being called ‘baby-face’ 

    No. I want to hear it until the day I die. (Laughs)
    Don’t you have any complexes about your height?

    I’ve already grown too resolute about it. I’m just a ‘small child’. Rather than changing this image, I want to upgrade to a better image instead. I like eating and I eat well, but my height still can’t be helped.
    You’re holding activities in China right now, it is said that you’re popular over there

    We’re preparing for a China tour concert with Nanjing as a start. They liked us better than we thought. It’s amazing.
    There was a period of time in which it was hard for you to promote in Korea due to a group conflict. How is it now? 

    I think things are getting better with time. Between ourselves, we are determined to work hard before thinking of this and that. We tell ourselves to work hard wherever we are.
    Didn’t you feel unfair(/victimised) somehow?

    Not at all. We’re afraid that if we think that way we might get trapped in our own beliefs become close-minded, so we are just determined to work harder.
    The members must have grown closer with each other

    We’ve always been close. Rather than growing close because of that matter, we’re telling ourselves to persistently walk forward while showing a good side to us and without making the people around us worry.
    Your younger sister is an idol as well (D-unit Ram). Do you have a good relationship?

    Usually, when siblings are only a year apart, they’d fight a lot. It actually hasn’t been long since our relationship’s gotten better. Now we’re closer than ever. I feel a little bad for my sister. She’s a rookie yet isn’t having much activities, so she’s having a hard time. I also went through the same so I feel sorry for her. Nevertheless, it’s a relief that we can relate to each other and share our feelings.
    Did you inherit your talents from your parents

    Actually, it’s my sister who inherited my parents’ talents. It’s just that she never had enough chances to show it. I hope my sister can get enough chances to showcase her talents. In my case, it’s just that I had great luck.
    Haven’t you performed together with your father (Jeon Youngrok) before?

    I did at my father’s 40th anniversary concert. I was almost not able to go as it was overlapping with our Hong Kong schedule, but it’s been a relief. I went together with my members, my father was really happy. I was grateful too. I didn’t have anything to do for my father as his daughter before, but I was really happy that I got to make him happy like this, it felt new.
    Were your celebrity parents against the idea of you becoming a singer at first? 

    They were surprised. They said they thought I wouldn’t work in the entertainment industry. Because they know how my personality is. I, too, never knew I’d do this job. It’s not that I never had any interests before, but my case, my dreams have grew bigger as I worked in this job.
    Were your parents of great help to you ?

    People think that “since her parents are celebrities, she must have learnt a lot from them.” Honestly, I didn’t learn anything from them. They instead advise me dispassionately and precisely. They once talked to me so coldly that I cried.
    How is your personality like?

    I am more mature than I look like. Seeing how I look like, people would think that I’m young on the inside as well. When I’m with the members too I’d often hear that “Jiyeon is younger than you but she’s more mature,” but I think it’s a prejudice. I certainly have something to offer as an unnie.
    You must be like a family now (referring to T-ara)

    I see them more often than my family. I’m originally not the type to become close with people. However, I feel that I’m very close with our members. I’m very shy around strangers but seeing how close I’m grown with the members, even I find it surprising.
    Do you go for a drink with members

    Strangely enough, we never had a drink amongst ourselves before. We’d eat, watch movies, and hang out with each other often but surprisingly, we never had a drink together. Instead, we play around just as if we’ve drunk.
    What about your solo plans?

    What solo… the younger members are doing a great job. But it’s not that all of the members have to go solo. What should I say. Shall I say that I know my distance. It’s not that I don’t have any greed, it’s just that I don’t think it’s time yet. I think that I have to improve better first.
    What about acting?

    For acting, I really want to do it. I filmed a web-drama a while ago, and it was really fun. I don’t know much (about acting), so I think a lot that I want to learn it and that I want to do it. My mom said this since she’s an actress. That for acting, rather than learning it, the knowledge you gain from experiencing it in real life is better. I somehow know how that feels like.
    What about dating?

    Right now, I have no interests at all. Sometimes I wonder if I’m a little strange. The members say that it feels lonely but it’s just troublesome for me (to date) now. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a man, I feel happier hanging out with my friends and with the members.
    What is your ideal type?

    Once more, I think I’m really strange. I don’t have an ideal type either. Unless you tell me to specifically pick someone.
    Then pick someone.

    Yoo Hae-jin sunbae-nim. I like the relaxed and easy-to-talk-to feel to him. My standards for outer looks have already disappeared.
    What is your current worry?

    I want to try different things but there’s some restrictions. Escpecially since I’m the older one but I haven’t shown anything yet, so I think that I’m doing nothing but growing older, I experience such thoughts a lot these times. Will this be my first time having a personal photoshoot if otherwise. I hope that I quickly get more opportunities.
    Your future plans?

    We’re planning to focus on an Asia tour including China. Also, the web-drama starring the 6-memebrs is on its way to finishing. You’ll be able to watch it soon. We’ll release an album this year as well. This period of time seems to be staying still, but we’re just planning to work hard. We will do our best, I hope you can look on us positively.

    My embrace is a fortress to you, I am thrown away by others
    Love – I can’t see the end of that dark tunnel so I’m very afraid
    Like a desert with a blazing sun, like a person crying out of thirst
    Kiss me ma baby, before this night is over, hurry, to me, day by day

    I miss your embrace, I guess I loved you too much
    When this night passes, it’ll become tears to wipe off – tok tok tok
    If that silver moon sets, will it disappear
    Your scent that still remains?
    Will the dream-like memories also scatter?
    Like rain drops, far away, tok tok tok

    I hear your voice
    The countless nights when we promised eternity,
    they become tears – tok tok tok

    At the thought of you leaving, again tears fall
    Please tell me you will return so our love can be forever
    You leave me and go far far away, follow that road and disappear

    At the end of this crazy love is the dangerous cliff
    I was infected by this tough love and kept trembling
    I hope my lips that recite this sad poem will be remembered in your black eyes
    Kiss me ma baby, before this night is over, hurry, to me, day by day

    [14.10.24] Jiyeon talks of fashion and beauty in an interview with Cosmopolitan

    "I am ignorant when it comes to beauty and fashion. I find it bothersome so I don’t exercise to keep in shape nor do I go to massage shops to take care of my skin. I just live while being content with what I have. This is who Park Jiyeon really is.” - T-ara's Jiyeon

    - The makeup artist just said this: that amongst the members, Jiyeon-ssi is the only one without a (makeup) pouch.

    I don’t need a pouch. Other than when I get my makeup done at the salon, I almost have no other occasions where I need to put on makeup.

    - But still, there are times where you need to fix your makeup.

    First, I have no interest in makeup, I don’t even know how to do it. So I don’t even feel that I have to fix my makeup. Once I get my makeup done by the makeup artist, then I don’t touch it after that. I just trust the makeup experts and leave it to them.

    - Nevertheless, do you have a ‘favourite item’ in your possession?

    Sisley Essence, Jo Malone Orange Blossom Perfume, and Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil. These are three different products that I’d definitely buy whenever I run out of them. I skip all kinds of skin care as I find it a huge burden, so I tend to use products that are as good as Essence. Also, I really need the cleansing oil since I’ve got to erase my makeup. for perfumes, they are the only beauty products that I buy and collect.

    - It seems that you’re not much into makeup.

    Due to my carefree personality, I don’t like dressing up lady-like on casual. If I ever have to put on makeup, I put on foundation or base makeup, and after that I just slightly draw some eyeliner.

    - Do the other members have no interest in Beauty like you?

    Unnies are different than me. They have so much interest. They are no less than professionals when it comes to makeup, they personally do their stage makeup. It’s to the point where your jaw would drop seeing (them do makeup) up close.

    - If you were to pick the one who’s the most Beauty-Holic amongst the members?

    Boram unnie! Other than me, all of them are so interested in Beauty and do exhaustive beauty care. After our overseas schedules end, all of the members would go out shopping, and I’d end up staying alone at the hotel room. The unnies would tell me “Just wait for few years. You, too, will end up buying this and that”, but I still haven’t reached that stage yet. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m still young or if it’s just due to my personality.

    - Looking at your interview answers up till now, it seems that you don’t even have a Beauty role model.

    Rather than a ‘Beauty’ role model, I have a life role model. That is my mom! I always tell my mom “when I get married later I will be like you”! It’s not because she’s my mom, but she’s really wise, smart, and cool. I’m proud of my mom who’s always assertive wherever she goes.

    - Let’s suppose you ever grow interested in Beauty, which of your present habits you’d want to fix then?

    Wouldn’t I take care of my dry skin? My skin is so dry since I really don’t take care of it at all. It’s to the point where makeup artists would tell me “at least use a (face) pack” when doing my makeup. Of course, I know well that I have to take care of my skin but I still can’t get myself to do it. Lately, my skin is itchy and blotchy. haha. Anyhow, it seems that I keep giving answers that are far from beauty, is that fine? But still, since this is actually who Park Jiyeon really is..

    Today on the 5th; Boram, Qri and Hyomin visited the Angel Headquarters on behalf of T-ara to make a donation of 1500 kg of rice. The Angels Headquarters is a non-profit organization that seeks to aid people, adults and children, in despair through more than simply monetary donations. They seek to provide hope and warmth to people's hearts.
    T-ara's generous gesture comes with the upcoming Korean holiday, Chuseok, on September 8th. "It seems I'll be able to spend the holidays with T-ara's warm donation," a thankful father says.
    The donated rice will be delivered to the facilities that houses single mothers and their children.
    We thank our girls for their charitable act and hope we can follow their example and provide hope for all those in need.

    luis_beto reacted to T-ara Trans in [14.08.27] Hyomin talks of how she keeps fit in an interview with Cosmopolitan   
    I think your body is much better than on TV. It seems that you originally have the body-built in which you don't gain weight.
    I also used to think like that, but once, when I was a high school senior, I went on binges and gained 8kg. I thought that wasn't right, I made up my mind and changed my diet to cherry tomatoes and cucumbers for dinner. I also rope jumped 2,000 times every night. My diet history started since then.

    Is there any exercise you've been especially doing lately?
    Crossfit! I actually needed exactly one month of preparation before I started this exercise. To make it short, I needed to make sure of myself. Also, I always did cross fit early in the morning worrying that I might give up later saying it's tiring. Because at night, I hang out a lot with my friends and would come back tired. Once I wake up I'd put in all my strength doing cross fit and then shower after that, when I do that I'd feel a confidence from deep in my heart that "What is it that I can't do after doing such a powerful exercise?".

    At last, is there anything you want to say to the COSMO readers?
    Before I started exercising, my fears that 'will I really be able to do this?' have considerably gotten bigger. However, gain courage and try it first. It's certain that, just like me, you'll get bigger and will be able to feel the little enjoyment and happiness. You will also start loving your body.

    On the 19th, Jiyeon held a press conference in Gangnamgu at Core Contents Media ahead of the release of her first solo mini-album. At the conference, she revealed her feelings of satisfaction and burden of being the first T-ara member to promote as a solo artist.
    “Because I’m the maknae, do I have to be the first [to have a solo debut]?” Jiyeon joked at the beginning of the press conference. Regarding her upcoming solo debut, Jiyeon said that, “The first time I was offered a solo debut I could was hesitant. I worried a lot about having to do everything by myself and it was a burden to me so much that I trembled and couldn’t sleep at night. ”
    “I’ve practiced a lot and I’m getting a lot of support now from fans,” Jiyeon said. “I also received support from the T-ara unnies and Duble Sidekick sunbaes.” She continued with, “It wouldn’t be true to say I don’t still feel burdened, but I think it’s a good image for me to overcome the challenges I’m faced with.”
    It’s also very troublesome for Jiyeon to have to stand alone when in the past, she was used to standing on stage along side five unnies. But Jiyeon won’t be staying true to T-ara’s colors. “I have a lot greed. We have prepared a different style of song and choreography. I want to show charms that are unique to me,” she said.
    Jiyeon’s title song “1MIN1SEC” was composed by the team Duble Sidekick and shows off a unique charm of poetic lyrics and melody in a mid-tempo beat. The lyrics are in the view of an honest woman who cannot ever give up on the man she loves.
    The concept of “1MIN1SEC” is sexy. Jiyeon said that, “It was not my idea to have a sexy concept. I wanted to have an androygnous concept, with some feminine and masculine aspects.” But when she was asked what sexy meant to her, Jiyeon replied, “I never thought of myself as sexy, but now when I go up on stage, I feel like my gaze is slowly changing. I am becoming more confident.”

    At the same time as Jiyeon, G.NA and Jeon Hyosung have came back as solo artists. Inevitably, they all have been compared because of their songs all being composed by Duble Sidekick but because they also all have sexy concepts.
    Jiyeon said, “I worried in the beginning about this, but after watching their songs and music videos, I realized we all have different concepts. So I think that we can all have a win-win situation.”
    She continued, “In reality, I’m not close with many celebrities, but I hope I can use this opportunity to be closer with them. I am competitive, but not right now.”
    When she was asked how she would stand out, she said, “I actually don’t have any weapon. I would only say I’m trying to do my best.” She also stated, “Honestly, I just want to show that T-ara has not given up.”
    In conclusion, Jiyeon revealed her future expectations: “This is not the last time I will make a solo album,” she said, “I hope to take on the challenge again.”
    Jiyeon’s “Never Ever” mini-album will be released at noon today (May 2oth) and her first stage performance will be on the May 22nd episode of M!Countdown. Make sure you have purchased her album via YesAsia if you haven’t already!

    When will the games be launched?

    The very first T-error Adventure game is in fact coming real soon. It is a point-and-click adventure game called Cake Day and guess what? Donors get first dibs on the beta!

    This first game is just the very small beginning for what we have planned. As stated, we will be developing more games of different genres, ranging from a fighter game, platformer, FPS or even cute mobile games!

    Just stick with Diadem to get all the latest updates and info!

    "T-error Adventures"?

    For those confused about the title, T-error is an affectionate fan nickname given to T-ara to describe their cute or humorous moments. Our games will be of comical nature, putting the girls through various scenarios and escapades and thus why we chose T-error Adventures! (For those concerned it is a negative term, please read.)

    How can we support this new project?

    In the future, to bring you guys the best, we may require the support of our community. For now though, as usual, the best way you can support Diadem is by donating to our various projects for T-ara.

    What language is the game in?

    The games will be in English and Korean! We as well plan to release the games in other languages like Japanese and Chinese. Depending upon the reception, we may expand further!

    What are the system requirement for the games?

    All system requirements will be detailed in each game's respective download thread.

    Is T-ara or CCM involved in this?

    T-error Adventures is not an official game and has no affiliation with CCM or T-ara. It is a game series by the fans for the fans.

    * * *

    We're aiming to release our very first game soon! In the mean time, share your thoughts and ideas on what kind of games you would like to play!
