    xbot 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."

    THAT WAS SO BRILLIANT! I just love everything about that comeback stage, it reminds me of all the adlibs and props T-ara used to do during Boo Peep & Roly Poly. Eunjung & Jiyeon wearing all covered up mechanic's suit still look HOTTER than most girl group members with skimpy outfits out there.

    xbot reacted to T-ara Trans in [15.08.08] "We've grown immune to malicious comments but have started considering legal actions seeing our families get hurt.”   
    Group T-ARA have opened up about the malicious comments about them.
    T-ARA have released their 11th mini album ‘So Good’ on the 3rd of August and started their promotions with their title track ‘So Crazy’. ‘So Crazy’, being composed and written by Brave Brothers and Galactika, is a funky dance song with an outstanding brass sound. They aspire to captivate the public with such exciting music that’s enough to cool off the summer heat.
    We met with T-ARA on the 7th at the waiting room of a music show, they revealed their thoughts on having a Korean comeback for the first time in a while. Eunjung opened up first saying “Actually, as we were having Chinese activities, we wanted to create more chances for us to meet our Korean fans and so ended up having a comeback. We didn’t prepare long enough for these activities so we’re very stressed and nervous. As you know, we’re having a comeback along with eminent seniors which makes us very nervous. Nevertheless, (people) showed us more interests than we expected so we’re very happy, nervous, and fluttered.”
    T-ara, who have mostly worked with Shinsadong Tiger all that time, are working with Brave Brothers for the first time as a group with ‘So Crazy’. Hyomin worked with Brave Brothers before on her latest solo song ‘Nice Body’.
    Regarding their first work with Brave Brothers, Soyeon explained “First, the song is very good. I guess T-ARA are definitely blessed with music. Beside Hyomin’s solo album and personal project album, this is our first time working with Brave Brothers. I think this song is meant for us. It went to other groups and came back to us again. It suits our colour well.” Eunjung added “It has Brave Brother’s own colour to it combined with our own retro sounds, which allowed us to showcase our own colour so it’s great.”
    Due to a scandal surrounding a member’s withdrawal from the group, T-ARA couldn’t free themselves from malicious comments. They reflected enough upon their mistakes and promised to make up for it through devoting themselves and working harder; however, they revealed that it was hard for them to put up with malicious comments directed at their families.
    Eunjung said “Actually, we even considered taking legal actions. However, it’s laughable for us to say we’re suing people now after it’s already too late. That’s because there were times where they actually were too severe. Rather than saying we overcame malicious comments, we just think that they’re not worth putting up with.” She continued, “When we think that we should locate keyboard warriors and sue them, we think of our families seeing (those comments). Whenever we feel that we need a solution for this, we start thinking of our families. For us, we can filter out (the comments) to some point; however, our families can’t, so we thought it over and over.”
    Later, Eunjung said “We became immune by our own. We grew used to it since few years have passed. Although we do get hurt…” Soyeon confessed, “We still get hurt all the same. In the past and now, we didn’t change. We’ve been patient all along, but when we see our families getting hurt by it, we start considering seeking for legal help just like other celebrities. We are being tolerant up till now. Our hearts still hurt at the malicious comments that are too absurd.”
    Regarding what goal do T-ARA want to reach in this time’s activities, Soyeon explained “Actually, the song is such a waste. We are worried that this song will not receive love due to the several handicaps of ours. We were given many good songs that could’ve received enough love have they been released in the past during the time we used to receive to much interests and love, we are worried that our song will not receive love. I wish people can put away their bias(/prejudice) and like the song.” Eunjung revealed her wishes saying “Because we are a group that have been hearing people say ‘T-ARA’s songs are really good’ all throughout that time, we want to hear such words again this time regardless of any handicap.”
    Eunjung said “Of course, we do have the greed to win no.1. We wish we can just get into top 10.” Soyeon revealed “It’s hard for girl groups to have high music chart entries. Our song debuted at 39 in the charts, we were so happy and screaming just by that alone. It’s extremely hard for a new song to enter top 100 in the charts lately. We released an album in Korea for the first time in a while, we’re happy and excited just but this alone. Of course, it’s great if we can receive more love. I think we should put in more efforts.”

    xbot reacted to vancew90 in [15.08.08] T-ara seizes #1 on YinYueTai Music Chart + enter semi-finals of Billboard's Fan Army Face-off   
    T-ara had just released their new song 'So Crazy' on August 4th and are already sitting on the first spot of YinYu Tai's (China's biggest music site) real-time Music Chart.
    The top spots of YinYueTai's chart are currently taken by T-ara (1st), Wonder Girls (2nd), Shinee (3rd) and A Pink (4th).
    Furthermore, T-ara have made it to semi-finals of the US Billboard-hosted Fan Army Face-off 2015.
    Having beaten many local (US) artists' fandoms, T-ara is now the only K-Pop group/artist that is still in the face-off.
    T-ara's fandom (Queen's) will be vying for the championship against the fandoms of international pop star Beyonce, British boy band One Direction and Australian Rock band, 5 Seconds Of Summer. Four of these fandoms are currently competing in the semi-finals face-off.
    The champion of the Fan Army Face-off 2014 was Big Bang's VIPs.
    Meanwhile, T-ara had performed their first comeback stage of their new song 'So Crazy,' live on August 7th at KBS 2TV's Music Bank.

    Thanks for the translations. As Hyomin said this comeback seemed to be quite sudden and out of the blue, but just watching at the teaser trailer.. the song sounds and look awesome. Another worthy addition to T-ara's diamond studded discography! I don't care how the song tracks, I'm just happy that T-ara consistently comes out with the kind of music that makes my heart beat faster!

    Jjan!!! Hello everyone, I am Hyomin.
    Everyone have been well, right?? (Using a kindergarten teacher's tone)
    Seems like it's been a long time since I've written a note like this.
    We're having a comeback soon and we're feeling both excited yet anxious...
    All those that have exactly the same feelings and thinking as me, I came to give you strength! Cheer you on!
    And to receive your strength..! To receive your cheers.....
    Yes... So I came here...
    Very surprised that we were having a sudden comeback, right?
    We thought so too.. Nevertheless, we had previously practised a little bit for "So Crazy", so do not worry, we will work hard to do it well and we are prepared for this comeback.
    We really want to quickly release a second full album but...
    How awesome does it have to be if we made you all wait for so long like this, really...
    I'm also looking forward to it hehehe.
    Let's dash forward towards a second full album....
    We want to quickly release music as good as our first full album
    Of course, this time's mini album will have great songs too! Please wait a while more for a full album, let's think of this as a bonus time (while waiting)!!
    Even though I'm saying this, but we're really practising very hard and preparing heukheuk
    However, if your expectations are high, the disappointment will be bigger so...
    Please do not have too high expectations for this time's album.. I'm going to say it this way and run away... kiki
    Nevertheless! Tomorrow is finally our small but awesomely special meeting! We'll be eating together, right!!
    Tomorrow is our joyful time kyaaaaa
    Fans that did not managed to get in, please don't be too upset.
    Because we will have more events like this in the future!! Promise!! Stamp! kwakwakwa And make copies ddaengddaengddaeng
    After the lunch is over, it'd finally be our first pre-recording (comeback stage)... It's the day of our first performance and I can't sleep, but I might suddenly faint without knowing it
    Hope everyone will sleep early too.
    It's quite late right now but..
    I hope you will have a happy time as much as we will have.
    Even if our rankings are not good, or if the (public) reactions are not good...
    Let's give each other our understanding and warmth!!
    We also want to stand in front of everyone and not feel embarrassed regardless of who we see... So let's strive towards that^^
    Please give us a lot pretty (cheers and support), many many many!!!
    I'm saying this and while thinking of tomorrow, I suddenly feel like I need to stay under my blanket...
    Everyone should also be under their blankets and go to sleep!!
    Throw yourselves under your blanket!!!!!
    Now then~~~~ Let's meet tomorrow with bright faces~~~~
    I'll come again!! Bye!!
    I love you
    BByong!! BByong!!
