T-ara: The chameleon princesses of the South
The feminine group will be 3 years old on July 29 since their debut in 2009.
T-ara is a feminine group who arose almost 3 years ago in South Korea and was formed by the company Core Contents Media. Originally, they were a group of five members and they had been training for years. Before their debut, they converted into one of the most anticipated groups and were nicknamed the "super rookies".
Before their official debut, they released their first song "Good Person". Also, two of the members announced their departure from the group due to differences in the style of music and the delay of their debut. Soon after, they were replaced by three new members.
Finally, T-ara debuted on the show MBC Radio Star in July of 2009 and their first performance was on Mnet M! Countdown, where the performed their singles "Lies" and "Wanna Play?". In September, the group released "Time To Love", a collaboration with the boys of Supernova. On the first of December 2009, the girls released their first album, titled Absolute First Album.
In February of 2010, the group announced that they would release a re-edit of their debut album, titled Breaking Heart. On the first of December, T-ara released their mini album Temptastic in digital format. The group celebrated their comeback stage on KBS Music Bank on the third of December and began the promotions with a new seventh member.
For their return in June of 2011, the 7 girls of T-ara: Hwayoung, Soyeon, Qri, Jiyeon, Eunjung, Boram, and Hyomin came out with "Roly Poly", a song inspired the disco of the 70's which is a part of the production John Travolta Wannabe. The promotions of "Roly Poly" were a success and the girls were able to obtain first place twice on M! Countdown and once on Inkigayo.
On the 28th of December they released the Japanese version of the single "Bo Peep Bo Peep" whose disc had the same name. After their Japan promotions they returned to Korea and promoted their album Black Eyes in November, just a few days after the debut of their second Japanese single "Yayaya".
In January of 2012 they showcased their versatility when they released their mini album Funky Town in which was included songs like "Lovey Dovey", a single which had a music video version in honor of Michael Jackson, and the ballad "We Were In Love" in collaboration with the group Davichi. In February they arose again in Japan with Roly Poly and in June they presented the studio production Jewelry Box which was certified Gold after selling more than 100,000 copies.
Their latest production Day By Day debuted on the third of July and they also presented their eighth member named Ahreum. On the 7th of the same month, on the comeback of T-ara on Music Core, they premiered the choreography of their promotional single which was prepared by Jonte Moaning, choreographer of "Single Ladies" by Beyonce.
Day By Day was able to reach first spot on the real time music charts: Soribada, Bugs, Cyworld, Mnet, Daum, Olleh, Melon, and Naver, beating groups like Sistar and Super Junior, among others. On another note, on December of this year their ninth member will officially debut, Dani of 14 years of age, who made her first appearance in the MV drama of Day By Day.
