    Eunjung nailed it, the girl really knows how to respond. For us Aqeens this is just a dream coming true, T-ara will be coming here more and more often!
    I'm just worried if they can survive this tsunami of duties, and still learn new language. The plan sounds too ambitious and hopefully they make it through.

    [13.05.20] T-ara N4 announces plans to enter the US market


    On the afternoon of May 20th, T-ara N4 held a press conference about its plans to enter the US market at Seoul Imperial Palace Hotel. Members Eunjung, Hyomin, Jiyeon and Areum attended the press conference and expressed their aspirations for their future in the US.
    On the afternoon of May 20th, T-ara N4 held a press conference about its plans to enter the US market at Seoul Imperial Palace Hotel. Members Eunjung, Hyomin, Jiyeon and Areum attended the press conference and expressed their aspirations for their future in the US.
    On May 12th, on invitation from well-known American artist Chris Brown, T-ara N4 traveled to the US for 5 days 4 nights. Member Eunjung expressed, "Although we received an invitation from Chris Brown, we still wondered whether we would really meet him. We were very excited. He was very welcoming and treated us well, we are thankful for that. We also discussed music and production plans. There were many good things that we had never even imagined before."
    Eunjung added that the following day, T-ara N4 received any invitation from Youtube channel network company “Freestyle,” and the members visited the company about the possibility of a T-ara Channel. Footwear brand “Vlado”, famous among hiphop dancers, also extended an invitation to T-ara N4. “More fans that we had expected came and so we held a fansign for a few hours. Vlado also proposed to make custom shoes with the T-ara N4 logo. Singer Ray J spoke about us on twitter and so we had the chance to meet and discuss music with famous producer team "1500 or Nothin."
    The members said "We had a successful meeting through a good opportunity and was able to discuss our plans to enter the US market. After meeting with Chris Brown, we also met with a lot of good opportunities. We are very lucky. We feel a lot of pressure on our shoulders and will work even harder in the future. About our trip to the US, the other members asked us when we will return to Korea and said we still haven't watched Iron Man 3 together."
    Hyomin revealed that a remake of "Jeonwon Diary" will be released in 5 versions and the rap parts currently done by SPEED’s Taewoon will be done by Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, T-Pain, Ray J and Chris Brown. The song is scheduled to be released in June in the US and also worldwide at the same. Eunjung added, "We will sing our parts in Korean, and the rap parts by the other artists will be in English."
    Jiyeon also revealed, "We will be leaving for the US on the 25th to perform the opening stage for Chris Brown's solo concert in Las Vegas. We are very nervous but we want to show our good side in our first performance in the US."
    Areum added that they are planning to attend the BET Awards with Chris Brown on June 30th. "Although it still feels surreal, we are very happy."
    Asked about the backstory to the meeting with Chris Brown, Eunjung said, “There really is no special backstory. T-ara trainee Dani attended Chris Brown's concert, and told him about T-ara and “Jeonwon Diary.” After watching our MV, Chris Brown really liked the song and asked whether he can see us directly. We suddenly went to the US in the midst of our promotions.”
    Hyomin, “Many parts actually happened spontaneously. We visitied Chris Brown’s MV set, and we suddenly received an invitation to cameo in his MV. But because our hair and makeup etc had not been prepared, we regretfully couldn’t appear in his MV. Just like this, many things actually happened without plan, and we are also looking forward to see what will happen when we visit Las Vegas this time.”
    Eunjung: "Before our debut, we felt that we would already be lucky if we could gain popularity domestically." "Because of the popularity of K-pop, we naturally started our Japan activities like other K-Pop singers. Our US activities also happened like this and started really suddenly. From now on, we will prepare accordingly regarding music and language.”
    The Director of CCM's overseas marketing team Lee Jintaek revealed that T-ara N4 has signed a contract with Empire Records (a subsidiary of Universal Recrods) for the re-release of “Jeonwon Diary”.
    He said of the good results from T-ara N4's US trip, "T-ara N4 received a lot of attention and love in the US. In particular, they met with Chris Brown and many other producers and received good appraisals from them."
    The reporters asked whether this focus on the overseas activities was to avoid the negative response from the public after the Hwayoung controversy last year. About this, Eunjung said "We felt that an opportunity like this is rar, other than our sudden plans to go to the US, our other schedules will still proceed according to plan. Other than T-ara N4, the rest of the members will also be continuing their Japan sub-unit activities. They will be filming for their MV next week in Japan."
    Eunjung added that, "We think that what we will demonstrate and show to everyone in the future is the most important. Whether on stage or somewhere else, we will demonstrate our genuine, honest, prudent and good appearance, so please anticipate our future activities and give us a lot of support. K-pop has received a lot of attention, not only from the US but also from other countries, so we feel a sense of responsibility to work hard and carefully in the future.”

    More likely than not it's an exaggeration by CCM (we all know KKS loves to inflate his sales, fans and attendance numbers to the point of hilarity). Maybe someone from Brown's management knew Dani was part of this Kpop act, gave her a backstage pass to meet and take photos with Brown, and then Dani showed him the MV when they were having the short meet and greet.

    This is absolutely and even appallingly ridiculous.
    Chris Brown's reputation for being an woman beater alone is more than enough to say that this is one of the most profoundedly stupid moves on CCM's part for T-ara's already broken image. It's like they're trying to damage the group's image even further! Come on, seriously?
    Do they even have any idea what Chris did to Rihanna? The man is a horrible scumbag who should have his ass hauled to jail and forbidden from the showbiz. Being a womanizer as well, if anything, T-ara should stay away from him as far as possible.
    With SNSD preparing for its own US debut this year, seems like CCM's gotten bloated off with its idiocy again. Why am I not surprised. Then again, CCM did try to make T-ara a group of 9 members like SNSD last year

    SilverPlume reacted to craZy in [POLL] Are there Queen's in Korea?   
    There are definitely a lot of Queen's in Korea, I wouldn't even question that. How else did they obtain their initial success and popularity (excluding general public appeal)? You definitely won't find a lot of them in a place like Youtube though (it's not their initial choice of video sharing sites.) If you're familiar with the Korean language and Korean sites, I would instead suggest doing a search amongst them.
    Though odd to question, I don't see how this thread is an ostracization of others, Regius. It's clearly not the intent of this thread. I believe what she wants to understand is why isn't T-ara's support as visible as the hatred against them. For which I can say this, the bad will often overshadow the good. We may not see it, but it is definitely there. (From my observation, those who don't care to start drama are not as vocal as those who constantly spew hate.)
    It is well know how notorious K-netizens are. Honestly though, their comments almost never bother me. I often laugh at their passionate hated lol.
    Netizens aside, T-ara's rep took quite a hit thanks to the scandal, why even the general public support may have faltered a bit. Things are certainly not the same and truthfully there's nothing international Queen's can do to change the Korean mass' feelings.
    We, fans from all over, just really need to keep doing what we've always been doing, which is to support and love our girls.
    Perhaps in due time, we can look forward to better days.

    [13.04.30] T-ara's "Rural Life" reaches 1 million views and it's composer explains the lyrics



    T-ara N4's "Rural Life" has reached over 1 million viewers.

    Despite being released yesterday, T-ara N4's "Rural Life" has reached nearly 1 million hits on combined sites like YouTube, etc.

    There was a large amount of interest before the release because of Double Sidekick and the other famous cast members in the music video including Choi Bulam, Kim Soomi, Kim Wansun, Heo Gyeonyoung, Yang Junhyeok, Jeon Guntaek and Kang Minkyung.

    The song has created so much attention throughout various major video sites that it's already reached 10 million views in only one day with the combined versions of the dance and drama. The reaction with overseas fans has also been more than expected.

    Controversy rose over T-ara's lyrics and the "To the Rural Life" section. Double Sidekick explained what "To the Rural Life" means.

    It means to escape the day-to-day life in the city to the "Rural Life" in reference to the MBC drama. The drama "Rural Life" is symbolic with family, friends and happy emotions.

    The "To the Rural Life" is referring to the drama and is aimed towards older generations .

    Meanwhile, T-ara N4 has been topping real-time charts since their song release.

    [13.04.29] T-ara N4 to debut their crossover genre song "Rural Life" on radio shows before TV shows


    "We will spread awareness for how beautiful Korean instruments are"

    T-ara N4 said this about using traditional instruments for their crossover genre of traditional instruments and popular rhythms for their title song "Rural Life".

    Core Contents Media said on the 29th that T-ara N4 wants to inform people from around the world about Korean instruments in an enjoyable way by combining it with electronic beats. "It was challenging, but paid off," they said.

    T-ara N4 are making a unique decision by debuting via radio instead of on a comeback show. They will debut their song on SBS Choi Hwajung's Powertime radio at 12:00 KST. They revealed that they received this idea from Davichi who also did this when they released their second album after five years. Coming back over radio gives the opportunity to talk and chat with viewers when the song is first premiered.
    T-ara N4 will release the drama and dance version of "Rural Life" at the same time.

    Wow, that's quick. We've just talked about the rumour about Hyomin shopping outfits for the sub-unit and today we already get to see the concept a photo. This is going to be a hot sub-unit. I still remember those big neck chains they wore when they performed IGCBOY, and you could hear the clanging noise when the metal pieces of the chains hit one another when they danced. For me, that noise adds power to their perfs. I hope they could come up with a cool and edgy concept this time.

    [13.04.09] T-ara's hip-hop unit.. Hyomin caught shopping with stylist in Japan


    Girl group T-ara will return. However, first four members will comeback in a unit. Eunjung, Hyomin, Jiyeon and Areum will star in T-ara's first unit. The song is called "Rural Life" but other than that, the precise concept, activity period and comeback direction is all mysterious.

    The title of the song makes it seem like the song will be retro. The song title reminiscent of T-ara's previous "old style" song concept. At the end of a long controversy, T-ara will attempt to show their colors once again.

    "Dispatch" covered their recent unit. On the 6th, Hyomin was immersed in shopping in downtown Tokyo with a stylist. She was in Omotesando, Harajuku and Shibuya searching for the perfect style.

    Hyomin and the stylist chose unexpected items including colorful necklaces, wide-brimmed hats, etc.. At the end, a retro concept looked like a hip-hop concept. T-ara is preparing for a hip-hop warrior concept for their new song.

    - Hyomin directly purchased costumes for T-ara's unit

    T-ara's fashionista Hyomin turned into a stylist. On behalf of the other members, Hyomin directly bought items for the unit. Hyomin was focused while in the luxury shop La Foret in Shibuya.

    Previously, Hyomin aided help in the "Roly-Poly" stage costumes. An official said, "Hyomin's extraordinary insight into styles and clothing was seen when T-ara operated a shopping mall during their debut. The members trust Hyomin will do a good job."

    Hyomin was attentive while picking out the costumes. Hyomin was looked for everything from earrings, neckalces, shoes, hats and all the requirements needed for activity and made various purchases.

    Hyomin sought out the advice of the employees and stylists and even asked for the opinion of the fans she met at the store.

    - Shopping scenario? Back to hip-hop!

    Most of the items Hyomin bought were reminiscent of hip-hop. With figure-hugging clothes and loose jumpers in unique styles. She also bought gaudy accessories and unique framed sunglasses and necklaces with a variety of decorations.

    Dispatch observed Hyomin and Hyomin's direction was similar to Big Bang and Lady Gaga's. Hyomin is going for a more unconventional and experimental style of attraction.

    The unit's concept can usually be inferred through the stage costumes. Already known that it's retro, but the overall style is that of "hip-hop". There seems to be a big gap between the two. The stage performance can be looked forward to because the choreography and song will have a powerful and intense hook.

    - More than 20 people as back-up dancers? Powerful and hip-hop?

    T-ara is loved for their easy-to-follow point choreography. However, this unit will be Brand New from head-to-toe. Hyomin began implying the transformation when she was shopping. The differentiation with hip-hop hats and colorful jumpers is the start.

    It's expected that each member will be dressed based on their personality. The choreography will be bold. They also are expected to take full advantage of hand and foot-work.

    T-ara's transformation can be confirmed by the dance team. For the stage choreography, a four person unit will be joined by 20 back-dancers. The point is the choreography, but the overall style will be completely different. An official said it's too early to release the specific concept.

    A unique combination of members will make up T-ara's unit. Hyomin, Jiyeon and Eunjung showed off their masculine dance moves during their Japanese tour. At the very least, the unit is likely to take a "cute and youthful" twist to a radically unconventional concept.
