    xbot got a reaction from nathaniel in [12.05.30] Chart Ranking - T-ara's "Lovey-Dovey (Japanese ver.)" #9 on the Oricon weekly singles chart   
    Really guys, I don't think that this was a flop.. T-ara is still new in Japan and you can't expect them to pass the top 5 mark every time they debut a new song.. being able to get a #1 for Bo Peep was an extraordinary astounding accomplishment (which why they keep on mentioning it whenever T-ara guests in TV shows there..).. it was a historic first time for a foreign girl band and not something you expect to repeat every three months or so..
    Even at #9, how many other acts from Japan, America, Britain, and even Korea did they they actually surpassed in the charts? Hundreds! To give it a bit more of perspective they even beat fellow CCM act: Supernova! (at #8 with Stupid Love) And those guys have been in Japan for years and have a serious fan base there..
    19k sales (just for the debut.. its still selling) without the expenses of producing, choreographing, wardrobe-ing, training etc. a new song still equals a heck load of moolah for our girls.. They haven't passed SNSD and Kara but still light years ahead of 4minute, Secret and Rainbow (which debuted earlier) in Japan..
    I am also not really worried about T-ara not using original japanese songs yet since they still need to introduce their unique sound to the J-public. SNSD's Mr. Taxi was awesome (which is why they brought it back to Korea) but I really don't like any of Kara's Japanese songs and I am worried that T-ara will also get similar J-duds.. can't wait for the new album for the girls to prove me wrong...
    My real gripe about T-ara's promotion strategy in Japan is that they are known for being the "chameleons" of K-pop.. you got "Lies", "Bo Peep," "IGCBOY" "Like the Begining" "CryCry" etc.etc. they go from cute to sexy to cool concepts. But for Japan? Bo Peep followed by YaYaYa followed by Roly Poly followed by Lovey Dovey.. thats cute to cute all the way... And I would like to shoot the guy who put the K-version of Roly Poly in the Yayaya singles CD just months from actually releasing the Japanese Roly Poly single..
    PS: Anyone else think it would be AWESOME to see Supernova and the girls get back together for a Japanese version of "Time to Love (3?)"

    xbot got a reaction from Gordon in [12.05.05] Quick News - "QUEEN'S" is T-ara's official fanclub, recruitment begins on May 8th   
    Oooh.. reading the explanations I'm slowly getting to accept QUEEN'S... for all the fan boys out there it's not that bad.. just think ourselves like the Queen of England's Queen's Own Regiments...
    We will be the regiments of fans behind our Queens and we shall be legion..... although it probably make more sense if the fan club is called QUEENS' (apostrophe in the back)

    xbot got a reaction from jyuanzhe in [12.04.18] Quick News - Hyomin/Soyeon/Eunjung not appearing in "Roly-Poly 2" musical anymore   
    You know what's funny? The T-ara girl's are probably the only idol group that have fans rooting for them to have 'less' activities instead of more apperances
    It just shows you how popular our girls are and how much their fans care for them..

    So i was wondering what will Eun Jeung be doing in Paris... I hope CCM won't force her to dance again...
    It will be awesome if she still performs Lovey Dovey but instead of giving her just a chair in the sideline like most boybands do if they have an injured member, how about giving her a DJ table instead? So she can still rock with the song without putting pressure on her legs...

    Finally people have took notice of the beauty that is Soyeon.. too bad the ranking isn't based on sharp wit or she'll be no.1
    PS: I know most on the list but can somebody tell me who are no. 5, 14 and 23? Thanks!
