  1. "It was our wish to win #1 in charts, but we can also get a storm of sign request in Europe now. We are also fascinated of ourselves. Haha." Members of T-ara (Soyeon, Eunjung, and Hyomin) who calms the music industry with 'Roly Poly' and 'Lovey Dovey' said that while giving us a big smile. T-ara had their goodbye stage on 12th February in SBS TV 'Inkigayo' and will go to Japan on 16th February. They will be there until 3rd March to promote their 3rd single album 'Roly Poly'. We met Soyeon, Eunjung, and Hyomin on 13th February and they said, "We promoted our albums for 10 months without rest so it was hard. But I think we got some recognition that is worth the hard work. So we are proud." Soyeon: "We really run without rest for this 10 months. It reached 9 schedules a day when it's a busy day. We also had spent 22 hours out of 24 hours a day for schedules. Our fans were worried of us." She continued with smile, "The fascinating thing is: We're tired, but we just won't sleep while we are moving place to place in the car. We will just chat in the car, to release our stress." They killed all the charts since June with 'Roly Poly' 'Cry Cry' and 'Lovely 'Dovey'. But at the same time, they have to bear with their killing schedule. But they are not lazy for their solo activities because of their greed. Eunjung was casted in JTBC Weekend Drama 'Queen Insoo', and Soyeon & Hyomin in musical 'Roly Poly'. Jiyeon was casted in musical 'Roly Poly' and KBS 2TV Monday-Tuesday Drama 'Dream High 2'. They also have solo activities despite their group activities, are there no difficulties? Eunjung: "It was harder because my drama is a history drama. I can't express the scenario or feeling well, so I was worried. But it was a fun experience. I first thought that my bed-scene will give a bad influence to my image, but thankfully everyone saw it with 'acting is just an acting' heart. Haha." Hyomin: "Musical is harder because it's different with appearing in TV. We have to directly give the viewers a view of our real self. I had some hard times when I can't sing properly while giving more attention to my acting. But I gain confidence as I try. Thanks to it, I can stand on stage while promoting in T-ara with more confidence." Soyeon said while laughing, "Hyomin acts like a musical actress in daily life. She makes everyone laugh with her hyperbolic gesture. T-ara became a hot issue in this beginning of year because of their series of commitments. Their subway promise, until their voluntary promise, they fulfilled it all. Eunjung: "We are a little shy to hear the word 'commitment'. We're happy to do some good works by commitment, but we just can't get a time out of our schedule. That's why we think it's easier if we make it as a promise to be fulfilled to our fans. We were able to finish our promotion with more meaning thanks to those promises." Hyomin: "But there are also some bad points for calling it a 'commitment'. The voluntary venue was revealed in press, so it was uncomfortable for us and also for the elders who came to find us. So next time, we are planning to have a private voluntary work." T-ara because popular since last year not only in Korea, but also overseas. Their Japanese debut single 'Bo Peep Bo Peep' reached #1 in Oricon daily and weekly chart. Their 2nd single 'YAYAYA' also recorded the 4th place in Oricon daily chart. They also performed for 'Music Bank' in Paris, France on 8th January with SNSD, SHINee, 2PM, and other singers too. Soyeon: "It was our first time to perform in Europe, and we had many experiences before we came back. We went to Eiffel Top and people from England, Spain, Italy, etc actually recognized us. They also know our songs. We gave them our sign, and also took some photos with them. We could feel the pride as 'K-pop Singer' at that time. We felt as if we are a representative of South Korea." Eunjung: "Even there is a fan who said that she watched We Got Married. I was surprised. At that moment, I thought that K-pop boom are really amazing. I also think that we have a chance to do more in the future." Hyomin revealed their bold ambition, "We know that we're still lacking a lot of thing, but we become more greedy as we personally went to the local. We want to make a debut in Europe, America, and other places in the world if we have the chance." What are T-ara's competitiveness in the eyes of the members? Eunjung: "I think it's the Power of Transformation that we have. We tried so many concepts, that is not a typical girl group concepts. 'Roly Poly' is the type of song that elders would like rather than people these days. 'Lovey Dovey' also had a shuffle dance, that is different to the typical girl groups. I think that's why we are receiving some love." Soyeon: "We said to the agency while joking, 'Can't we get a concept like other girl groups? Let's promote with an innocent and cute song' and they replied 'You guys don't match that kind of concept'. I think we are fated to have some eye-catching concepts, even in the future." T-ara will also have their first performance in the US on April. They will perform in LA and San Fransisco with Yangpa and Davichi. Soyeon: "We have a lot expectations since it's our first time. I think K-pop has also entered the US, so I hope we could get more recognition through this performance. I think it's a good thing to go to the US with a good feelings, we're lucky. Haha." The target of greedy group T-ara is: 'Multi-player Group'. Eunjung: "The more you get, the more you will be greedy. I think it's also happening to us. To be on the 1st place in chart was our wish before debut. But now we also have some greeds for overseas promotion, and also for acting.. We will work harder so we will be remembered as a group who is doing well in many aspects. Our goal is to hear something like 'We also have this kind of amazing group in our country'." *** Source: Nate Translated by: dianapetrina @ Diadem

Eunjung showed an active self on 2011 as a singer and actress. She started 2012 with a great feeling from dragon's aura. She threw away all regrets in 2011, and shared her expectation, excitement, and aspiration for 2012. "I started 2011 with the drama 'Dream High', and also starred in my first movie. And I also received good feedback as T-ara. We had our Japan debut, and I also starred in the drama 'Queen Insoo'. I surely had a busy year more than the others." KBS 2 'Dream High' is a drama with Eunjung, Miss A's Suzy, 2PM's Taecyeon, etc in it. Eunjung expressed the villain character nicely, and impressed the viewers. She is also currently appearing in MBC variety show 'We Got Married' as a virtual married couple with Actor Lee Jangwoo. She showed another side of her charm. Thanks to it, she received the Newcomer Award (Show Variety) in 2011 MBC Entertainment Awards. "I spent the year so busily, but it's also a year that made me felt the value of our members." Eunjung had some solo activities, and also activities with T-ara. But she didn't forget to thank the members. "I felt sorry a lot to our members, thanks to my solo activities. But we always support each others' to strengthen our relationship. So it was also a year that made me felt many sisterly love. As much as our solo activities are, we try to understand each other. As I saw them growing and developing, it makes me expect even more from them." She looks back, "So many things happen, and it was a busy 2011." and gave a score for last year, "It's 78 out of 100." 2012 is coming, and this year will be more special for her. Black Dragon's Year is her year, because she was born in 88. Her expectation and excitement are big. "Dragon is a imaginary animal that doesn't exist in real life. I want to spend a great year, just like how dragon has a deep meaning. I want to show the power of T-ara to the public, along with our members. I also want to fix all my regrets from last year, and show a more improved appearance." Eunjung also shared her dream as a youth in her early 20s, not as T-ara member or an actress. "I personally want to go to Europe for a backpack trip. I also want to go to a family trip. (laugh)" And last, Eunjung spoke up her message of hope to the others who was also born in the Dragon Year. "To all lively 88 born, please spend this Black Dragon Year with full energy and positive thoughts. It's an age that shows our official start as a social freshman, 25 years old. I hope everyone will be successful." We can feel her sincerity, expecation, and excitement for 2012 through her powerful voice. Her activeness in many aspects and her variety of charms are the reason of all interest in her. Source: Nate Translated by: dianapetrina @ Diadem
