  1. Dang. I don't mean to be a hater but the photos are very amateurish in so many aspects... The magazine did not do T-ara any justice at all.......
  2. I hope the new album would be as good or better than Absolute First Album. Will like to see some new songs.
  3. It is the official T-ara information page in Japanese. Been around since before July 2011
  4. http://www.t-ara-official.com/topic.html
  5. It's really very accessible (if you're in Tokyo...). It's too bad that they didn't do this a month earlier......

  7. He's supposed to be a "superhero" who goes around asking celebrities without any forewarning for presents. He decided to head to FujiTV to do his superhero work and stumbled upon T-ara. When he asks for a gift, Hyomin offers the chair and they try to give Boram away. He asks for something they may have in their bags but was rejected by Soyeon saying they're native Americans and do not carry bags. So... he decides to give them some sweet snacks. It's supposed to be his special move that will guarantee him success. And true enough, T-ara hands over something. But what is it? Gotta stay tuned to the next episode to find out.
  8. Erm, no. Phonetically, it's ageage purezento. "Age" is a colloquially short for moriage, which means to raise excitement or excitement itself. The title may be translated as "The Exciting Present"?
  9. I have a feeling the other songs are gonna be fab too!
  10. I like Eunjung's acting. But, she's overworked... I'd love to see Soyeon in a drama! (what happened to the movie she was supposed to be in???)
  11. [11.10.04] Second single "yayaya" confirmed for November 30th release! T-ara managed to achieve the title of first overseas group to reach the first spot on the Oricon Charts with a debut single with "Bo Peep Bo Peep". True to their name, T-ara, the last queens of Kpop have taken Japan by storm with their cat dance and will be following up with their second single release on the 30th of November. The second phase of their activities in Japan will be the release of the Japanese version of "yayaya". The visual concept this time will be that of a "native Indian". For T-ara who will be transforming from their cute cat images, the next transformation of T-ara's is definitely something to look forward to. Details shall be posted at a later stage. Please wait for our news. *** Source: http://www.t-ara-official.com/ Translated by: aspenx@Diadem
  12. [11.09.29] T-ara's live event attracts record-breaking 16,000 strong crowd T-ara, the 7 member girl group that took South Korea by storm with their cat-dance, held their first Japanese debut event in Lazona Kawasaki on the 28th. The 7 members who debut today with their single "Bo Peep Bo Peep" accepted an interview with us before the event started. They appeared In matching gold miniskirts as they greeted us together with an introduction "We are T-ara~". With regards to their preparations for the upcoming preparations, Eunjung (22) commented "As KARA and Girls' Generation has paved the way ahead of us, we did our best with our Japanese lessons so that we can follow in their footsteps". She continued to talk about a heartwarming episode with KARA's Gyuri, who is a close friend and also shares the same Japanese language teacher, softening the tension at the event. Eunjung recounted, "Gyuri told us to not be nervous and to just concentrate on singing our best. Also, she told us to please work hard on learning the Japanese language". When asked what they will like to challenge in Japan besides the music scene, Jiyeon (18) replied reliably, "Acting, variety shows and we'll work hard on everything!". As for the question of their favourite celebrities, each member was quick to answer. To Eunjung who quoted Takenouchi Yutaka as her favourite celebrity, Soyeon (23) who quoted Mukai Osamu and Oguri Shun and Boram (25) who quoted Miyazaki Aoi, Hyomin (22) the individualistic leader who was watching the scene quipped with a smiled, "It's rather chaotic but all 7 of us actually get along really well". Our interviewers posed a question to the group, who is well-known to make decisions through a game of "Rock paper scissors", asking them if they knew that the Japanese group AKB48 decides who will take centre stage for their performances through the same game. Eunjung explains "We know about AKB48 but have never heard about this side to them. We don't take the game so far. When we need to decide who will take centre stage, we will choose the member who fits the mood of the song best", surprising us with their unique selection process. T-ara performed their 3 debut songs enthusiastically at the event. With the highest turnout of 16000 spectators for the venue ever, Lazona Kawasaki Plaza, T-ara performed to a roaring crowd of excited fans. Note: Takenouchi Yutaka is best known for his role in Beach Boys. Mukai Osamu is known for his role in the live-action version of BECK, Oguri Shun as one of the members of F4 in the original Japanese Boys Over Flowers. Miiyazaki Aoi is a popular actress/CM model and Olympus spokesperson who is well-known for her role in God! Please Give Me a Little More Time. *** Source: http://news24.jp/ent...ws/1619355.html Translated by: aspenx@Diadem

  14. [11.09.15] T-ara's Soyeon gives advice on what to cook Korean 7 member girl group T-ara made an appearance at a PR event for Nongshim Japan's new instant noodles. 24 year old Oshima Mai was also at the event at the guest. Soyeon (23) complimented her in Japanese and told her how cute and pretty she looks to a blushing Oshima. T-ara and Oshima then collaborated on a short dance after T-ara guided her on their debut song Bo Peep Bo Peep's (on sale from the 28th onwards) cat dance. Their conversations were lively and T-ara commented that the time they spent together with Oshima was like a dream. After the event, T-ara accepeted a closed interview. Soyeon expressed enthusiastically that with their debut just around the corner, T-ara has been working really hard in preparation for the debut to meet the expectations of all the Japanese fans who have been waiting for them. With the new Japanese phrase that she has just learned, Soyeon made an appeal and announced that they want to become Japan's little sisters. When asked for advice on what to cook for a guy, Eunjung (22) immediately replied playful "onion buchimgae!". Soyeon on the other hand, explains with glittering eyes that she isn't very good at cooking and so only cooks ramyun most of the time but will definitely love to pickle kimchi, which is traditionally said to be the most difficult food to prepare, for a special someone when she meets him. Hyomin (22) was absent at the event as she was unwell. *** Source: http://news24.jp/ent...ws/1619153.html Written by: - Translated by: aspenx@Diadem
