A funky rhythm within brass sounds; it's a song composed by hit-song maker Brave Brothers. The MV is a story of T-ara in a navy school. It's something like a T-ara version of 200 Pounds Beauty. A "T-ara Contest" flyer had sealed their fate. After discovering the contest, they decided to transform together! 2. Visuals: Absolute Marine Look You will be seeing the thighs of the young girls at the navy school throughout the MV. They will be showcasing a variety of marine and sailor looks during this comeback. 3. Bodies: Absolutely Nice Their bodies are also crazy! All the members underwent a diet for this comeback and have been doing intensive weight training to get toned bodies. 4. Choreography: Absolutely Disco Visuals - checked! Now on to the choreography. It will be an addictive dance like Bo Peep Bo Peep and Roly Poly. Have you seen it before? a. Stab/Poke Dance This is the highlight dance. A reminiscent of the retro disco dance, right? Lightly rocking their hips while stabbing their index fingers upwards. b. Hip Dance It's a sexy dance? The hip dance puts emphasis on T-ara's feminine beauty.

  11. [15.06.02] Eunjung talks about her driving force and her past virtual marriage on MBC's We Got Married "My entertainment life's driving force is just familiarity." Debuting for 7 years with T-ara, and 20 years since as a child actress; the reporter asks Eunjung if she had a driving force in her entertainment life. She expressed her honest opinions, "since my younger days, I started becoming more familiar with the life of an entertainer (as a child actress then as an idol). I thought of doing other things too but, I guess it slowly became natural to me like 'this is my kind of job.' No matter what, since my younger days, I guess things in the entertainment world changed like how I change my clothes." Among all of T-ara's hit songs, which song does Eunjung have the biggest affection towards? Girl group T-ara produced many hit songs. From lively and cute songs to mature and sexy songs; they have performed many different stages. When asked about which song does she have the biggest attachment and affection towards, her reply was, "there are many songs but if I have to choose one song, it would be Roly Poly. T-ara's charm was more significantly revealed with that stage; the choreography was made by musical choreographers so the song shows a different and interesting color (of T-ara)." Eunjung also said, "I learned a lot about marriage life at We Got Married." A singer, but also possessing charms as an entertainer, Eunjung left a deep impression in the performing arts too. When asked about her feelings towards the filming of 'We Got Married', her reply was, "I guess I learned a lot about marriage life. Since a year and a half was quite a long period of time, I guess just by looking at the facial expressions between my virtual husband and I, you would think that we had became husband and wife. However, we don't have the feelings of being madly in love but we do have the feelings for each other as companions." If you are curious about Eunjung's confession about "We Got Married,' tune in to Arirang TV's Showbiz Korea, airing on 3rd June 3rd (Wednesday) at 5PM KST. *** Source: TopStarNews

  15. T-ara’s Eunjung just made her debut as a solo singer. However, she did not use her actual name, but a stage name 'Elsie' to release a solo album with the title song being 'I’m Good' to start off her schedules. Although she is the third member in T-ara following Jiyeon and Hyomin to have their solo debuts, Eunjung is the first member to use a new stage name to release an album. After debuting for 7 years as an idol, Eunjung is using 'Elsie' to come back as a new singer. Eunjung sat down at a cafe in Jongno-gu Sogyeokdong with reporters for an interview on the 13th of May. She talked about her feelings about the solo album release and some back stories etc. Among listeners of female idol groups’ music, many would definitely know who T-ara Eunjung is. But they wouldn’t be familiar with Elsie. There were even rumors that Elsie is a parody name to imitate the movie Frozen. So why did Eunjung use “Elsie” as a stage name for her solo activities? "It’s a name thought of by our CEO. The name wraps around the meaning of having all sorts of beauty. It includes honesty, straightforwardness, joyfulness, etc. Actually, I feel that if I use my own name Eunjung rather than Elsie, it would have been better. But for the sake of bringing out a better feel of the song, we decided to use Elsie instead of Eunjung. I hope the song would stand out more in that way." Although it is a blind concept, mysterious, but in actuality, many people knew that Elsie was T-ara Eunjung even before the official announcement. Even though Eunjung’s face did not appear in the teaser, netizens pointed out that “T-ara Eunjung is Elsie.” Therefore, the marketing of Elsie ended just like that. "Haha, actually I figured that everyone would know that it’s me. But it’s like a mysterious-yet-obvious kind of emphasis I think? Actually, the fact that many people could recognize Elsie is Eunjung had me relieved. Frankly speaking, B2ST’s Jang Hyun Seung and Secret’s Jeon Hyosung are releasing solo albums right now too, right? Because it’s my first solo album, and with Jang Hyun Seung and Jeong Hyosung, everyone was worried about what I would do." Having debuted in 2009, this is Eunjung’s first time going solo after 7 years of being a singer (including trainee years), and she has a different feelings as compared to when she is with T-ara. Although she is given the chance to display an image that is perfectly unique to herself on stage, she feels the burden of having to fulfil what is required of her on stage all by herself. "Previously, we went on stage as 6 girls, but now, it’s just me and the male dancer. I feel shy and curious at the same time. Furthermore, our CEO wants me to constantly perform better than my previous performance. (laughs) During my solo schedules, it feels like my promotion song: although I’m trying to feel fine being by myself, but in fact, being alone is not easy at all. I prefer having activities with the other members. But in order to present a new and fresh image, I have carry the thought of being ok by myself.” Eunjung had talked about past events regarding the conflict with ex-member Hwayoung on MNet's 4 Things Show while tearing non-stop and received the public’s attention. She revealed the truth behind the past events through an interview. “Because it seemed like we said a lot of things that was misunderstood, so we were very upset. Because I felt that my tears gave the impression that I was wronged, but that should not have been the right thing to do, so I blamed myself. I felt like I should have been more careful, it should not have been like that. Actually, when the filming was over, there were more relaxed moments. It wasn’t because of certain happenings that I cried, but more of because the filming was very meaningful and I felt so blessed that I cried. Because it was a reality and variety show that was filmed over a span of a few days so it became very comfortable. Thank you all (the crew) for making the filming so comfortable and relaxing, a program that wouldn’t get me scolded, I said these words. There was a female producer and director on set that cried after listening to my story; upon seeing them cry, I cried too." A T-ara that relies on their cute and joyous music, to receive huge popularity and support every time they release songs, went through a tough time after the ex-member Hwayoung bullying controversy. After some time, the controversy and debates slowly subsided, but it left a painful emotional scar on T-ara’s members. Eunjung who was thankful for not getting scolded during film shoots was asked how she managed to cope with the emotional pain. “Firstly, I thought of the fans, they are the reason why I was determined to hold on. And I am the kind of person that would admit to something very quickly, so I thought, “so it’s like that” and I slowly accepted it. I also had to think about future activities. The public might not think that I have admitted it because it was not clearly expressed. But I have already admitted and accepted the fact.” Although it has been 3 years since T-ara’s bully controversy, there are still some malicious labelling remarks (labelling T-ara as bullies). Eunjung hopes that giving it more time will be the solution to this. Instead of forcefully doing things (to explain and receive forgiveness), I would rather let time solve everything, put things back in order. “I hope we can be like before. But it seems like it’s not easy to go back to how things were. Giving our best and displaying a good image, everyone’s perspective of us would slowly improve, this is what I think. Instead of making statements, I think it is more important to show our effort and do our best in our activities.” Using the stage name Elsie to stand on the solo stage, Eunjung uses her sexy charms to replace her usual adorable and at times, boyish charisma. In order to display a perfect image on stage, her goal is to use this period of time to show new charms to captivate the public. “To make everyone think, ’T-ara's Eunjung is capable of this image?’ I wanted to display a contrasting look. Besides, after displaying a feminine and sexy concept, I hope to show yet another different image the next time.” Eunjung was asked about her thoughts of what T-ara would be like during their 10th year. Eunjung imagined an image of the members being in their 30s and exclaimed. At the same time, she mentioned that she wants to use the name T-ara to be with the other members, showing her love for the group. “T-ara’s 10th anniversary? How old would I be then? I would be in my 30s. I hope to be able to produce music that would appeal to the audience of that generation. I also hope that we can use the charms of all 6 of us to continue having activities. However, it is not up to us whether we can continue having T-ara activities regardless of time. We must release albums and have fans around. When all of us discussed this, we expressed our hopes of being able to have activities of our own while also continuing as T-ara. This is our burning wish.” *** Source: Star News

  24. [14.10.30] T-ara surges forward with multiple interviews by various Chinese media outlets! In light of the official announcement by MBK Entertainment and Longzhen Culture of T-ARA's venture into the Chinese music & entertainment industry, Chinese media outlets like Sohu, Sina, NetEase and even Tudou have stepped forward to interview our girls. All of the translations for these interviews can be downloaded at our Subbed Videos section, be sure to watch them for a better idea of their plans to expand in China! Sohu Interview 141016 The start of the interview consisted of general questions asking T-ARA about songs they like, what do they do in their free time, exercising regime, etc. The main crux of the interview was the question about T-ARA's plans to release a Chinese album (with Mandarin songs of course). Soyeon mentioned that they will be releasing a Chinese album at some point and to show support for their upcoming China Tour in 2015. Sina Interview 141024 The interview started off again with questions about their recently promoted album (which all of us are so familiar with already) and general questions about their lifestyle. What was interesting about this interview was that T-ARA was asked why they were known as a "chameleon girl group" in the sense that they are able to pull off so many different unique concepts. This is something that is worth mentioning and deserves merit just for the fact that the interviewer actually did some research on T-ARA's background. T-ARA also mentioned that they will be appearing on various media like dramas, variety shows, CFs and even movies in China. Once again, they mentioned the China Tour that will be happening in 2015. Tudou Interview 141025 (before KMW) Before the interview even started, the video gives us a peek into what would be discussed: T-ARA is interested in working with Jackie Chan during their activities in China. Even though the interview is a tad short, the main things that us Queen's want to hear are covered. Once again, the China Tour 2015 is mentioned by Hyomin and Soyeon tells us that all members in T-ARA will be making appearances on various media works but this time did not specify what types. Of course the most important part is all of them are getting exposure, which is the best for T-ARA. Boram told us that all of T-ARA members idolize Jackie Chan in some way and would be very happy and honored if they had the opportunity to work out something together with him. Let's keep our fingers crossed shall we? Eunjung gave us a tease about "Little Apple", telling us that they would be considering performing the original choreography on stage although the song will be remade. Net Ease Interview 141028 The whole setting of their latest interview yet, with Net Ease is a rather informal and fun one. The interview did not cover much and seemed more like promoting the individual songs of their And&End album, apart from just "Sugar Free". On a side note, Hyomin mentioned about Number 9, which is by far their most popular song in China, just by looking at how they maintained their first place on YinYueTai for as long as I can remember. Nevertheless, the end of the interview was a very short display of their Mandarin skills (still in the learning stages of course). And there you have it, a short summary of each interview with influential Chinese media bodies, notably Sina and Tudou. What most important is that T-ARA keeps giving us a confirmation and also a bit of a promotion of their China Tour that will be happening in 2015, duration and exact commencement date still yet to be announced. Aside from the tour that would mainly comprise concerts and fan meets, they would be appearing on the Chinese television and the big screen. Expect to see T-ARA in various posters around China too since they would be having CFs as well. All in all, a big win for T-ARA in China, and hopefully would increase their popularity across Asia, and ultimately international presence. Of course we should never forget that this would contribute to their popularity and public recognition in Korea as well, inevitably. **** Source: Sohu, Sina, Tuduo, Net Ease Cr: vancew90 @ Diadem

According to MBK Entertainment that manages T-ARA, their remake of "Little Apple" will be tweaked and focused on T-ARA's style and strengths. The lyrics will be simple and the melody of the song will definitely be addictive because of its catchy tune.

Furthermore, after T-ARA's concert in Shanghai on 27 December 2014, T-ARA will officially start their promotions in China, ranging from appearing on variety shows, possibly even dramas, CFs and many more media-related activities. ***** Source: Tenasia Translation via T-ARAchina.cn by vancew90
