    [12.12.18] T-ara deny exceptional offer for alcohol CF deal so they can keep image of appealing to all ages T-ara have politely denied an exceptional offer for an alcohol advertising deal. Besides their maknae Areum (19), all of T-ara are adults. According to recent news, idol groups have the second most amount of influence on today's youth and T-ara wanted to make sure they kept their image as an appropriate girl group. T-ara said, "We want youth to mimic our dances, fashion styles and enjoy us for that instead of cater to encouraging the youth drinking culture. Because of this, we thought it would be inappropriate to advertise publicly for an alcohol brand." T-ara also said, "In the future, we hope there will be less advertisement appearing to youth encouraging them to drink." *** Source: http://news.nate.com/view/20121218n14067 Translated by: Nathaniel @ Diadem

    Oh come on... this particular photographer probably just screwed up his timing & missed the "smile shot." Its freezing there and they are only wearing miniskirts, it must be hard to keep on smiling for the dozens of photogs there when there is a winter wind blowing through your exposed legs & rattling your teeth..

    That's an absolutely right decision considering T-ara fans range from 50 to 5 year olds, I always wonder on how people like to bash idols for innocently dating (most of them are in their teens and twenties after all) but on the other hand love to hear about their drinking stories and think it as cute. I have nothing against people who drink but it just sounds hypocritical to me.. I could be wrong, but one thing about T-ara that I love is that we don't hear any "cute drunk" stories from them or about how they are happy because they are old enough to drink or talking about their favorite alcoholic beverage.. I'm not saying that Idols shouldn't drink in their own free time, but why do you have to talk about it in the media? Aren't they supposed to be role models? Lee Hyori has dropped her lucrative soju endorsement just because of the same reasoning, too bad other top youth idols (which I won't mention here) happily took it over..

    [12.12.05] T-ara reveal their ideal type of mother and which member's child they'd want to be I think from amongst the questions asked from the Roly Poly Interview, one question stood out. "If you were born again, whose child would you want to be from amongst the members." Before that, lets ask if you want to become mothers and if so, what is your ideal mother type? Jiyeon: Like my mother. I want to be a wise parent. Qri: I also want to be like my mother. Doing everything, even that which is invisible. Because I don't want to spoil my kids, I dont mind being strict. Soyeon: I want to be the opposite of my mother. My mother exhausted me in work. She didn't think of me, but her "career of work". She made me do all the housework and raised me by exhausting me. I do want to be a hard working mom, but unlike my mom. Because I want to be a mom who makes her child grow strong. Boram: I speak as someone who has a sense of friendsihp to my mom. If I give birth to a child, I want to be a mother who is like a friend to it. Areum: I want to be a mother who is called upon like a friend. Hyomin: I want to go shopping together, a mom who is a friend. Like a fashionable sistar. Even friends of my child will say "Hyomin okasan [mother] is so young", "you're beautiful!" (laughs) Eunjung: Me...um, I haven't thought about it. - Never have imagined it? Eunjung: Yes. People who are loved. I think I want to give love to other people. I want to be a mother who gives a lot of love. - Now a question from the readers; if you were born again, whose baby would you want to be. Well everyone? Jiyeon: For me, Areum. Because I want her white complexion. Areum: For me, Jiyeon. I'm envious of her small face and pretty skin. Hyomin: For me Jiyeon. After all she has a cool personality and if someone bad shows up, she'll be his angry opponent. Eunjung: For me it's Soyeon. She would make me eat my breakfast properly. Since she is strong, she would properly protect her child. Boram: I also go for Soyeon. Soyeon: Really? (laughs) Boram: Because you're polite, that's why you will properly raise a child. Soyeon: For me Eunjung. She acts like a mother in the group, I think she is the ideal person, and she is very homely. Hyomin: Ah~ Skilled at cleaning? Maybe Qri is her own ideal type? (laughs) Everyone: Ah~ - Does Qri think the same as the other members? (laughs) Qri: Yep, myself. (smile) Everyone: Hahaha! Jiyeon: Qri would raise a strong child. She can do anything if she puts the effort. She would raise it to have an independant spirit. Though I wouldn't want her as a mom. (smile) Everyone: We know! - She would be strict, that's why. (smile) Soyeon: Who would be my mom? Boram would be bad. (laughs) Everyone: Hahaha! Boram: Why?! Soyeon: I'm worried about Boram changing diapers. She would feed me a lot of food, then I would become fat. Everyone: Hahaha! Soyeon: After that, because she is a bit childish, the daughter will have to look after the problems of her mother, but you can buy me a lot of goods and cosmetics. Boram: Mou~ I want to get married someday. If you say that, it's not going to happen! Everyone: Hahaha! *** Source: Web 1 Week Translated by: OmegaKrypton @ Diadem

    NO TWO WORDS ABOUT THIS but now, T-ara is getting more money from abroad(showcase) while they couldnt have proper promotions in Korea for SL. Yet, they promoted SL in music shows for well over a month. I don't see how they suffered from those performances, unless you count negative reviews from netizens, Boram's shoking weight loss and that alleged black ocean they got but that one is debatable. Much of the money they earn from group activities doesn't even go to them anyway. Even if they earned a decent amount overseas, it's not a healthy long-term substitute over promotions in Korea - this is clearly seen by the fact that CCM plans on making SPEED and Co-Ed do a comeback early next year while also refusing Davichi to leave on their own, despite that chances are very, very few people are going to give a damn about the first two I mentioned since they went dead for months at the least. As far as I'm concerned, it looks pretty darn clear to me that CCM's gone desperate and realized that T-ara's income alone is not enough to sustain itself. The only girl groups capable of lasting overseas without making a comeback in Korea and still remain successful and relevant for months are SNSD, 2NE1 and Kara. "I never said that fans(Queen's) should buy everything what T-ara throws. what i'm trying to say is if we know or think that T-ara is wrong then we shouldnt follow them. I mean, like why should we follow something knowing that its wrong to do so... and trusting T-ara with all of our hearts isnt wrong but following them knowing that they are wrong is DELUSIONAL." First of all, who's 'we'? You're talking about tens of thousands of people here and secondly I don't see anything harmful about being at least skeptical about the group in public announcements and news - and frankly, what they say cannot be trusted much anyways because CCM's notorious for constant lies and making the group lie too, not to mention the typical 'oh, our group turned down this offer etc' crap has been played so many times that the legitimacy of it is highly questionable. Trusting everything what they say alone with all your heart itself is already one step towards being delusional. "Confession always doesnt refer to confessing about bad or unhappy things. T-ara never claimed that the confession was about scandal. No no. It was assumption own our own account. They did confessed and that confession was about how happy and glad they felt for being Queen's along their sides through out the scandal. Just because you wished them to speak about scandal and how it didnt go your way doesnt mean that it cant be a confession. It was confession about the happiness they felt from Queen's support and by no mean the confession episodes had caps like" about scandal or bullying" The show's purpose was supposed to be about what exactly occurred behind the scenes in regards to that incident, if I recall and the timing of the show itself can't be considered coincidental either. I even remember a lot of people here commenting that they hoped that the members would clear up whatever misunderstandings and mistakes occurred between them before the show was aired - and there's a bloody good reason why a lot of people were disappointed that nothing was truly confessed in detail. Everything about that incident was completely vague. Hell, I even gave a general translation of the summary of what they were talking about and if you want me to provide you that, don't hesitate to ask because I've got a copy of it available. I'm not making up stories here, mate. Confessing about how happy they are from fans' support can be done anytime, anywhere during their activities. I don't see a reason for a whole show dedicated to that since they've admitted they're pleased with fan support countless times before.

    IMO this was the right decision. It would just have been one more reason to hate on T-ara. Especially if they did a sexy dance (like Hyuna) Jiyeon's and Hyomin's scandals would never die down. But KKS seriously needs to stop with the "T-ara turned down ___ offer". Most people don't believe him anyway, plus, it sheds more bad light on the girls. It would be better to do some charity work quietly, with time they could regain at least some of their reputation.

    good choice for T-ara If they accept it, netizens will try to take that opportunity again to destroy their image again. And besides, they have their maknaes areum and Jiyeon plus dani will join them later on. really a good choice ^^
