T-ara debuted in 2009 under Core Contents Media. The number of members kept changing throuhg the years, lately they are 6 members left as some departed while some have been added. A lot of changes and rumors in the group brought a lot of confusion, though the group never lost their originality and spirit. When you hear a song from T-ara, you can directly recognize their sound. T-ara is definitely talented but not only at dancing and singing, also at acting. Their success in Japan is really big, they are also very popular in Korea. Though internationally their success is still a bit low compared to their success in Japan or Korea. T-ara brought some recognized songs, especially choreographies which are learned by rookie groups. But T-ara is also known to be the girl group with the best music video as they always come up with short drama clip. T-ara has a lot of originality which makes it a multitalented group.
They are now 6 members, as they change the leader of the group every year, it’s pretty hard to follow, but it seems that this year, the leader is Qri. Qri is a vocalist in the group, she is considered as the sexiest. Boram is the oldest but seems younger than she is as she is the cutest, she is also a vocalist. Soyeon the main vocalist is very talkative and say things as they are without trying to be diplomatic, but somehow it’s her charm. Eunjung is the lead vocalist and main rapper. Hyomin who is a really beautiful girl is the lead vocalist, the lead rapper and the lead dancer. Jiyeon is the youngest, she is the face of the group because of her perfect feature. She is the main dancer and a vocalist.
They have a lot of releases since 2009, to make it clear I will concentrate on the Korean album releases. They released their first full album pretty quickly after debut as “Absolute First album” has been released in December 2009, the year of their debut, including the very famous song “Bo peep bo peep”. In March 2010, they released a repackage album titled “breaking heart” adding one new song to the previous album “I go crazy because of you”. After that, they released several singles to finally release a new mini album “Temptastic” in December 2010. But their next big hit has been released in June 2011, with the mini album “John Travolta Wannabe” and their famous “Roly poly“. In November 2011, they released another mini album “Black eyes” with the song “Cry cry“, song for which they made an amazing music video, first part of a short drama. The second part of the drama has been released with the song “Lovey dovey” that everybody knows. It was included in their repackage album “Funky town”. In july 2012, they released another mini album “Day by day”, followed by the repackage album “Mirage” in September 2012. That year, they also released a best of with their biggest hit from 2009 to 2012. They finally make their big return in Korea in October 2013 with the mini album “Again” including the song “Number 9“ which got a good success. And of course, we couldn’t count without a repackage album, but this time they didn’t release only one but two, “Again 1977” and “T-ARA winter“.
Even though a lot of things happened around T-ara, they are still there giving their best performances for the fans. Their songs are always cheerful and funny, it’s a pleasure to listen to them. So don’t hesitate to give them a chance and listen to their songs!
