[15.11.28] T-ara as a trending girl group in China, plus to appear on large-scale Spring Festival Gala

Recommended Posts

Girl group T-ara is really hot within China, no one can compete with them. Combined with a strategy to localise T-ara's image, they are also apparently becoming a trending girl group.

T-ara had previously released a remake of China's Chopstick Brothers' song Little Apple. Ever since then, they received a love call from China and officially debuted. They appeared and performed on various TV programmes. This resulted in T-ara quickly becoming a group with a strong competitive advantage.

T-ara drove up the atmosphere further by having a China Tour, holding concerts in various cities. Members took up roles in dramas and even movies, receiving a lot of attention. Extraordinary beauty, exciting music, upbeat choreography etc, T-ara is becoming a group that is more familiar than distant to Chinese audiences through their various activities.

Other groups are temporarily promoting their performances and events, but T-ara is having a lot schedules that are actively taken up by their Chinese agency, be it individual or group activities.

Last year, T-ara signed a contract with a Chinese entertainment management agency, making them the first ever Korean group to officially step foot in China. It is a huge contract agreement worth 30 million Yuan (5 billion KRW/4.7 million USD) and sales are expected to exceed 100 million Yuan (16.5 billion KRW/15 .6 million USD).

However, T-ara have moved to an even bigger scale agency this year. Wang Si Cong, son of one of the wealthiest man in China, set up a new media agency Banana Project and signed a contract with T-ara, who can expect to receive numerous contracts in China according to local Chinese news reports.

Furthermore, T-ara will appear on various famous TV shows in China periodically. Among them is a TV programme by CCTV Spring Festival Gala Express in which celebrities, or anyone for that matter, who like spring night (first night of the Spring season) can participate in. It is the biggest-scale TV programme that is specially aired to celebrate China's Spring season. However, only those that are of certain recognition in their fields can appear on air. T-ara will appear on the Spring Festival next year during the Spring season in China.

We can call it "CCTV Spring Festival Gala Express" too. T-ARA will be leaving for Beijing tomorrow (29/11). I heard that they will be rehearsing tomorrow and the actual recording will happen on 30/11. The broadcast is on every Sunday 1930hrs but T-ARA episode is not confirmed yet.

Unless they are only making a guest appearance, if they make it, they will go to the Spring Festival Gala in 2016 Feb.

Thanks for the info! Made the change as it's easier to look up and wow, seems like a pretty prestigious event. Would T-ara be the first Korean act to ever guest on the show?

Update: The recording happened this afternoon and in addition to the medley, T-ARA performed 6-member Little Apple too. In the end, T-ARA got the votes (Eunjung cried) and proceeded to the next (final) stage (直通春晚) which will be held in 11-14 Jan. (I think it will be broadcast live.)

Let's wait for the actual broadcast of today's performance. T-ARA Go! Here are the photos from the recording today.

Heard from C-queen's that international artistes who are invited to attend this event are all of a certain level of popularity. Based on this, we can already tell that t-ara has reached a certain level of popularity in China. :)))
