[14.10.07] Exclusive Interview with Sugar Free EDM Club Edition producer,
On September 24th, T-ara dropped a digital album of 18 remixes (in Korean and English) of their latest hit Sugar Free featuring numerous producers such as DJ Jeffery Choi, DJ Beatrappa, DJ Dion , DJ Big Bounce, Monster Factory and more. Amongst them, serving the title track to the remix album, was DJ Ferry.
Diadem got the chance to ask some questions for an exclusive interview with the up and coming DJ who is bridging the gap between EDM and K-Pop.
Hello! Could you start off with giving us an introduction about yourself?
Hey, I’m Ferry EDM DJ/Producer from Calgary but currently live in Seoul-South Korea.
First of all, congrats on the release of your Sugar Free remixes! Could you tell us how this collaboration with T-ara came into being?
Many Korean know me as Kpop remixer here in Korea, I’ve done with many official & unofficial K-pop stuffs but I have to thank DJ Koo to introduce me to CCM.
What was your experience like working with T-ara? What were your impressions of the girls?
Honestly I didn't meet em too long but they are first of all cute (Qri and Jiyeon) and seem pretty fun girls!
By any chance were you a fan of T-ara beforehand?
Frankly I’m a K-pop lover but not really fan of particular Idol group, I like CL tho.
Could you tell us why it was decided to record the Sugar Free remixes in English? Were you apart of the process to rewrite the song into English?
No I wasn't- IDK probably they had plan to push it into EDM markets!
EDM is something completely new in the K-Pop scene. What do you think about it? Do you think it can catch on and become popular?
EDM is already popular since few years ago, I guess combination of EDM/Kpop isnt a right solution tho’.
Are there any other K-Pop groups, or any artist, you would one day like to work with?
How did you become a DJ and what are you favorites aspects of DJing? Could you also tell us your process on how you re-imagine and remix a song?
I’ve played piano since I was 11, was a band member at highschool, But I really dont know why I’m DJ now, I neva eva regret tho’ hehehe
First of all try to make a frame for my remix in my head then color it depend to the original track and then try to fix colors in my DAW and its all!
Are there any other DJs or artists who inspire you?
Maybe Deorro/Harwell and many Australian DJ/Producers.
You are also the General Producer and CEO of your own company, CINO Entertainment. Could you tell us a bit about your record label?
We do many things here with my guys (Beatrappa, TERA, Noke & ...) but main projects go around EDM & remix. We did many official remix for Korean artists. They love how we make their tracks active, aggressive, massive and powerful!
Are there any of your own activities and promotions currently ongoing?
Working on a collaboration with DJ BL3ND with Korean duo Crispi Crunch, FBTA - ZZang ZZang Man will release next week and many other projects that I think you ain't interested about em!
What’s your favorite event you got to DJ at?
I was at many festivals but honestly I wanna be part of UMF what I couldn't get it so far!
Could we possibly look forward to more collaborations between you and T-ara in the future?
Any final words you’d like to offer Queen’s?
I just wanna say you QUEEN'S are just awesome. You're the best fans I’ve seen so far!
We thank DJ Ferry for his time and brining his music to Queen's.

Hyo'Min 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.

[14.08.22] T-ara not yet decided on a title song.. Brave Brothers vs. Shinsadong Tiger
T-ara has confirmed their comeback to be for September 11th, but they are left in a urgent situation after they decided to reconsider which song to choose as their title track.
T-ara are moving forward with their comeback, but the title song is still not confirmed. They are in an emergency before their comeback schedules begin shortly.
They received two completely different styles of song as candidates for the title song - one with Brave Brothers and one with Shinsadong Tiger.
The Brave Brothers song is a unique dance track full of femininity. It has a fresh and exciting melody, but it comes with sad lyrics. The song could possibly be sexy and revealed exciting and emotional charms of T-ara. These types of songs have success in the long run on the chart.
On the other hand, the Shinsadong Tiger song is a little bit more risky. It has a heavy club-based sound followed by a powerful melody. T-ara's best-known song with Shinsadong Tiger is "Roly-Poly" which had a cute concept, but this song has a completely different color to it. Either way, T-ara wants to abandon their cute concept and show a more fierce side of them on stage.
Core Contents Media will gather opinions on the two songs before their full-fledged comeback begins in a few weeks. It'll be difficult to decide between either song because more and reportedly very good.
An official said, "It's a very unusual situation to be in. We will utilize the reaction to each concepts and carefully review which one will have a better outcome for T-ara."
Nonetheless, T-ara will still make their comeback on September 11th!

[14.08.19] T-ara to stay away from sexy concepts with an authentic EDM comeback song on September 11th!
T-ara has confirmed their comeback date and release of a new mini-album to be September 11th!
After announcing they were coming back in September, a comeback date of September 11th has been revealed today to OSEN. Up until that point, T-ara has been and will be preparing hard for this new release.
T-ara also unveiled through their agency Core Contents Media a new concept picture. The picture is a sporty and sexy chic look that is completely different from their last musical style concept with "Do You Know Me?".
But in actuality, T-ara will not comeback with a sexy concept, but rather a stylish and chic/cool concept.They will show a stylish color that is completely different from Hyomin and Jiyeon's solo ventures.
T-ara's title song will be a special genre of EDM (Electronic Dance Music) called Big room. Big room is an EDM genre that is centered around minimalist percussion, regular beats, simple melodies and synth-driven breakdowns. Core Contents Media revealed they will also be working with real and authentic EDM musicians.
An example of a "Big room" genre song would be Martin Garrix's Animals or Epic by Sandro Silvo & Quintino.
They will also showcase a catchy new dance as they have with their retro Roly-Poly dance, Lovey-Dovey shuffle dance, and robotic Sexy Love dance.

After Hyomin teased us about T-ara’s impending comeback just last night, CCM has revealed today that the group will be making their return in early September with an exciting dance title track!
A CCM representative reveals they had initially planned for a comeback in August but will now move the date to September to make more time for recording. They also revealed they will be releasing another mini album this time and will be delivering some exciting dance music.
T-ara’s last promotions as a group was 8 months ago in December 2013 with Do You Know Me followed by the successful solo debuts of Jiyeon and Hyomin with 1 Min 1 Sec and Nice Bodyrespectively.
