  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

  4. [12.01.23] T-ara's Eunjung, "The year of Black Dragon will show T-ara's power" The beginning of 2012 was bright. T-ara's Eunjung who was born on 1988, entered 2012 with a more special feelings because this is her year. We get to know her resolution for this year. 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

    I need to translate it but the video on Youtube was deleted (suddenly) while I was translating. And I can't download from MU >< Thanks~

  12. Jiyeon, "Eunjung has started to take care of her virtual husband, Lee Jangwoo" A member of T-ara called Eunjung appeared in MBC 'We Got Married' as a subsequent of Jung Yonghwa-Seohyun couple. He's doing the program with Lee Jangwoo who's currently starring in KBS 1TV weekdays drama 'Smile, Donghae'. On 4th April before the premiere of animation movie 'Gnomeo and Juliet', we get to interview Jiyeon. We asked her, "Aren't you jealous about Eunjung joining WGM?" She answered, "I just think that it must be fun (to join the program)" and laughed. Then she revealed, "Eunjung-unnie has been calling him 'husband'. So more than my greediness, it's just good to see her cute image. I haven't met her husband (Lee Jangwoo) yet. But I searched for him through internet already." Jiyeon revealed that she's satisfied with the holiday. Because for 2 years, she's only working without rest. Now is the time to rest. Lee Joon proved her words by saying, "Jiyeon is the busiest person I ever knew." Meanwhile, Jiyeon and Lee Joon challenge on dubbing for the first time for the movie 'Gnomeo and Juliet'. Jiyeon showed a fresh and active side of Juliet through her performance. She revealed her opinion about her first dubbing, "It was harder than I thought. Because it's my first time, I was nervous. I was also panicked because we have to speak in-sync with their lips (that were speaking in English)." She confessed some complains regarding the recording. "I was sick (cold) at that time, until sounds are coming from my nose. My voice is kinda husky, so it become more husky thanks to the cold. The others were worried because my voice could go lower than Lee Joon's. But after we finished, everyone praised me for being so good in my first recording." But unlike her, Lee Joon said another thing, "I was nervous at the first time but interested at the same time. I used to read comics / watch animation since young, so I practiced a little. I thought that my voice is good, since they chose me to dub it." He also revealed his opinion about his first dubbing, " Actually when I was recording, it was my busiest days. I went overseas twice so I have to practice even inside the airplane. It's a shame that I couldn't practice much. But I did well because of the coach in the venue." Lee Joon showed a comic-acting without shame to show the character of Gnomeo, and got an OK sign from the director in one-take. Jiyeon also perfectly recreated the character of Juliet. The movie 'Gnomeo and Juliet' will open on 14th April. *** Source: Newsen Translated by: dianapetrina @ Diadem

  14. A representative from CCM (Core Content Media) Entertainment called Kim Kwangsu (49) is known as "The Hand of Midas of Entertainment World". We could see his impact through stars these days. Lee Hyori, SG Wannabe, T-ara, Cho Sinsung, FT Island, CN Blue, Davichi, Yangpha, Hwang JungEum, Lee BumSoo, Han Eunjung, etc. He started his career by being a manager before he owns his own company. He's known as a legendary in entertainment. Those who knows him are people who works with full enthusiasm and excellent sense, and succeed in that area. So what kind of person he is, in T-ara's eyes? Since T-ara is part of CCM (Core Content Media) and one of the group that he's taking care of. So how "The Hand of Midas of Entertainment World" took care of his management. ▶Soyeon= Our president enjoys his work. Even if we know how tired he is, we could see that he enjoys it. And he always checks all the staffs works. He styles our member and gave opinion to our songs. He writes lyric, and looks carefully to the scenario. He also never forget to visit the trainees' practice room. Everyday without missing. He never had a vacation since our manager works for him, for about 30 years. He's not a person.  ▶Hyomin= Working is a lifestyle. He works since he open his eyes in the morning and till he close his eyes to sleep. He's not even sleeping. If we calculate his sleeping time, we just can't get it. He always watches us practicing until dawn, and also watches all the juniors practicing. And in the morning, he will sit in his chair to work. So I think that's why he haven't marry yet.  ▶Soyeon= In the 5-story building, the top floor is his house. 1st floor is the office, and the underground part is the practice room. In his living space, we could see staffs, singers, and works. That's why his work is part of his lifestyle. He has nothing but work in his life. After we get along with him, he's like our father, but also like or friend. If he's feeling down he will drink and complains to us. It's so human. ▶Qri= His senses is also different. 'Bo peep Bo peep' was actually a song with a sexy concept. That's why we filmed the MV like that. But before the first broadcast, they told us to use the cat property. Suddenly we turn into a cute and adorable concept. We were surprised, but eventually his judgment was right. The song and choreography become a hit. After that we just know that he (the boss) actually ordered it at an internet shopping mall. ▶Boram = He's careful in many ways. I received so many complaints from him regarding my style. He said that an entertainer has to change constantly, so please decorate it. Usually when I come out from our practice room, I only wear ripped sport pants and tied my hair like a male student. One day suddenly he said, "If you're not going to change your hairstyle in 2 weeks, I won't stay quiet." So I changed it. ▶Hyomin= But I think he sees us T-ara as a staff. When Eunjung filmed her drama, she has someone else as her stylist. But then he told me to do the styling. That's why I even went to DongDaeMoon after my schedules to mix-match clothes, then back to office. Qri-onni is in charge of newspaper articles and scrap. Because she's good with drawing. ▶Boram= I didn't have any schedules that day, but I have things to do from 2PM until 12AM in the practice room. ▶Eunjung= That's right. When we have time, we wanna study or buy pretty things, but we just can't. Please give us some time, a day or less. And some emergency calls too. A friend is filming drama until dawn, another one is sleeping, another one is going to their next schedule, but suddenly he called. We were really nervous when we gathered in the practice room. He said, "Did you guys lose some fat?" It's really shocking. He's someone who will tell us face-to-face if he wanna say something. ▶Soyeon= The trainees deserved all those works but we're not. If we talk about it to another girl groups, they just can't understand it too. But we're really proud of our president in many times. We heard that he jumped from manager position to president position in a very short time. He really worked hard. He works all night long and studying too. If we meet some seniors (in music industries) they will say this first, "Are you guys Kwangsu's children?" We heard a lot that our president is a full of passionate person.

  15. Jiyeon who's the youngest of idol group T-ara, revealed a confession through Twitter. Jiyeon will start her entertainment activity through a female variety show called SBS 'Heroes'. She showed us a fresh image of her in Incheon when they're having a photo time for 'Heroes' on July 6th. After the photo time at July 7th in dawn, she wrote at her Twitter account, "I ran while only looking in front. It's time to stop." her meaningful post has attracted attentions. Fans who visited her Twitter thought "Maybe it's a confession about her 'Murder Schedules'." Actually before she debut, she did her casting for MBC's drama 'Soul' and since then she has no time to spend for herself. T-ara's debut and her all day long shooting, after shooting straight to practice room, 'Lies' choreography practice, music program broadcast, events, etc. She can't even sleep properly due to her 'murder schedule'. She also did some activities with T-ara like TTL, Like the First Time, Bo Peep Bo Peep, without taking a breath. Then shooting a drama for KBS called 'God of Study', activities with T-ara in repackaged album 'I Go Crazy Because of You', and a new movie 'Death Bell 2'. She handles all these busy schedules at such a young age. Netizens who heard about the news gave some sad testimonies like, "Through that time she was running busily without even took a breathe, now I could feel her tiredness." - "We could see her tired expression.", "How much tired feelings a young person could felt." - "She can't even sleep in her playing age
  16. OMFG I was wandering around ALL Korean sites and I wonder why all the articles are about T-aradot.com , not T-ara World. ROFL. Pissed off thanks to AKP >D Thanks a lot for sharing nathaniel <33
  17. T-ara's Jiyeon who's part of 'Death Bell 2nd story: Bloody Camp ('Death Bell 2') revealed some selca image using the movie's poster. On July 6th, Jiyeon from Core Contents Media who's involved in 'Death Bell 2' movie revealed 3 photos of the poster. Jiyeon who wanted to put some 3D effect in the poster gave her idea to the publisher. In the poster, Jiyeon's face and arm parts is being cut. But in the 3D poster that she made, she showed 3 different expressions and put some stickers etc. Meanwhile, 'Death Bell 2' is about a murder mystery of students that are trapped in a survival game. Scheduled to be release on the 28th. *** Source: Star News Translation: dianapetrina@diadem T/N: Selca - self camera
  18. If we ask to Jiyeon 'Who are you? T-ara's Jiyeon?' she will nod her head so hard. She performs on stage with the name T-ara's Jiyeon, and will also go with the name Park Jiyeon to unfold her acting skill for the first time. Through a movie that will release on July 29th called 'Death Bell 2: Bloody Camp' (Producer: Yoo Seondoong. She first debuted as an singer/idol star but she has no difference as a fresh high school student, because Jiyeon (17) wore a high school uniform and a nameplate. She's looking fresh and good in her bob hair. She also appeared at all her works (movie, drama) wearing uniforms. In her first debut drama 'Soul' and her second, 'God of Study', she wore some pretty uniforms in those. Uniform & school means a lot for her. "I really like filming at school. Since I can't go to school everyday because of schedules. I chatted with everyone at waiting class and at the table, I really feel like being a real high school girl. Of course the shooting was not easy, but every time the director shouts 'Cut!', we're back to resting time. They really ask us to keep silent and also angry us (?), just like at school." Her character in the drama is a silent girl, not a talkative one. When a cute scene appears, she usually gives a 'V' sign first. But other people quietly endure the anxiety, too. She's actually very different with her character as a 'cutie' in 'God of Study'. "I'm different with my character in the movie. My character in 'God of Study' is a little more similar. A little minus the cute-act. It's not because I like princess-fashion at the movie, but because my real personality is easy-going and sometimes manly. I only show my aegyo (cute-act) to my onni (older sister - as in T-ara). Everyone is around my same-age, so I don't have anytime to show it anyway." She finished her movie shooting 1 month ago, but that doesn't mean her schedules are finished. She could smile and remember the memories now, but Jiyeon is a strong lady who has a double duty as an idol and an actress. Her whole day is filled with more than 12 hours of shooting. She even has had hypothermia and sometimes the occasional bloated face, but she never says something like 'I can't do it'. "It's hard to do both jobs at the same time, but I'm greedy. I have never thought of something like 'Aren't you tired?'. I just wanna do everything that's given to me. I also have the motivation. Actually, I'm not really stood out because I'm doing my job as a group. I can't stand out more because I think of T-ara first. I'll do my best in this time together." The only domestic horror movie that will come out this summer is 'Death Bell 2'. Jiyeon is being greedy for the movie despite the fact that she can't watch horror movies. She just wants to see herself in the movie and she wants to see people getting scared. There's some things that she gave up during shooting. "I gave up my face while filming 'Death Bell 2'. In all scenes, there's nothing pretty. At first I wanted to look kinda pretty in the movie. I also wanted to take the pretty angles, but I just can't. If I do underwater shooting, my face & body will be bloated. I have some thoughts like, 'Please edit it so I will look at least less swollen.'" It's the first time Jiyeon used her name 'Park Jiyeon' (for the movie). She didn't even know that people called her Park Jiyeon, no rather than T-ara's Jiyeon. She knows that it's hard to put down that title. But she also has the desire to be called Actress Park Jiyeon rather than T-ara's Jiyeon. 'Death Bell 2' is a meaningful step for this greedy girl. "Questions like 'Why is a singer acting?' shouldn't come out. It's a burden for me. Some people asked me 'why are you not singing, but acting?' It really become a burden for me. That's why I worked hard to do well. My final dream is being an actress. I wanna be a singer in T-ara activities and also acting. "On stage, I'm T-ara's Jiyeon, and when I'm acting I'm Park Jiyeon, both of them naturally comes in and goes out. Even if it's not a really different character than the real me, I want to show more sides of me. I want people to say 'Oh, so Jiyeon also has that kind of side'. It will still be a greed of mine. Watch my honest acting at 'Death Bell 2' and please evaluate it calmly." *** Source: Nate News Translation: dianapetrina@diadem
