Minor probably because she's apparently not hurt.

The best part about this whole thing is that people are claiming conspiracy that the car flipped over and she wasn't hurt, like they're making it up or something. It's called engineering people, and lots of times, it turns out well.


Today somebody on YT told me that T-ara's management bought the hospital, the doctors and the media just to report something "baww"-worthy about T-ara after all the shit that went down...

If you can watch this video in fullscreen, from the beginning, without ever looking at a clock, I congratulate you:

Eunjung got fired from a show because of all the stuff that happened:

I can't believe they're still going to release their album repackage next week. You figure after a single that sort of bombed on the charts and all this mess, they'd lay low for awhile.

After doing only prerecorded TV performances (and backing out of shows which don't allow prerecording), T-ara faced their first (?) live audience at a concert in Jeju Island.

It is their first non-prerecorded appearance, if I understood it correctly.
The sentences (are they from comments ?) on the blog you linked make it seem as if they didn't actually sing. Or are they talking about something else with the "blackout" ? I understood it as an electrical blackout.

Here are some fancams and pics:

Areum, the new girl (blonde), is doing pretty good:

But the song is uninteresting imho.

"Blackout" refers to the whole crowd coordinating to be silent during a performance as a form of protest. I think the term comes from how in larger group concerts, fandoms are organized into their own sections with colored glowsticks. That way when a certain fandom chooses to protest, a whole section is blacked out.

I think this has escalated pretty ridiculously, and that's coming from someone who's never really liked any of the T-ara girls. There's no solid proof any real bullying occurred, first of all, but that's beside the point. Antagonizing the girls seems counterproductive to me in any case. The real bad guy here is the company/CEO, who put them under insane pressure, overworked them, pitted them against each other and then let them take the fall when things went badly. I feel really bad for the new girl, too, who got thrown into a whole lot of mess that wasn't her fault at all.

I can't help but feel that the fan reactions are just as cruel and immature as the supposed bullying incidents everyone's harping on.

Google SNSD and blackout at the same time if you want to understand more about how it works. It happened to them in 08 or 09. I forget.

And these girls released "Sexy Love":
http://www.youtube.c...hVRP09NCO4&hd=1

Parts of it sound like a crappy cover of some 80s techno-pop song (2:52 onwards).
The refrain, however, just as with nearly every T-Ara single, is pretty damn catchy.

It took me until half way into the video to realize that the one with puke-blonde hair was not Boram in a second outfit, but actually Qri.

Areum just turned 18 this April (I guess the other one who will join is the underaged one ?), thus I feel free to find her really really hot.

I've been listening to Sexy Love and the songs that came on the mini album with it which are also good. Sexy Love is a bit obnoxious which seems to be their trademark in some way.

Sexy Love is a bit obnoxious which seems to be their trademark in some way.

With all my dislike towards K-pop, T-ara might be my favourite group because they seem to be the least obnoxious to me. :lol: I wanted to post here to praise "Day by Day" before, but reading about all the bullshit bullying and drama apparently going behind the scenes turned me off of it. I'm sure there is some competition and personal tension in H!P groups too, but Koreans seem to take it to the extreme (or Japanese are just so good at hiding it).

Still, "Day by Day" is a beautiful song on its own. But yes, "Sexy Love" IS obnoxious. That quacking synth motif is making me see red whenever I hear it and seems to have been designed specifically to disrupt my thought processes. Mental warfare in its purest form.

This is Strawberry playing "Sexy Love" on loop:

This is me trying to focus on anything at the same time:

The accuracy of this depiction is frightening. :lol:

Yes, indeed.
I thought I'll find it hard to enjoy them after all the shit went down, but deep down in myself I'm a sucker for catchy K-Pop.

They're releasing an original Japanese single in March, and damn does their company want it to sell well (via Omona):

The release of the long awaited Japanese original track, バニスタ! (Bunny Style), has been decided!

With the new member Areum who joined last year, big news from the newly formed T-ara!

As craved by the fans, the new Japanese original single バニスタ! (Bunny Style) has been set for a release on March 20th! (Further details to be announced afterwards.)

For the first time, the Limited Edition CD+DVD will have 3 editions and the Regular edition will be 7 editions, in total there will be 10 discs on sale.

The Limited Edition CD+DVD disc will feature バニスタ! (Bunny Style) plus sub-units of T-ara along with music videos for both バニスタ! (Bunny Style) and sub-unit songs. In addition, the Regular Editions will feature solo music of the 7 T-ara members. That makes 11 new Japanese original tracks!

Limited Edition A: バニスタ! c/w Sign (Soyeon + Areum)
Limited Edition B: バニスタ! c/w シャボン玉のゆくえ (Boram + Qri)
Limited Edition C: バニスタ! c/w Dangerous Love (Eunjung + Jiyeon + Hyomin)
Regular Edition D: バニスタ! c/w 愛の詩 (Soyeon Solo)
Regular Edition E: バニスタ! c/w Two as One (Eunjung Solo)
Regular Edition F: バニスタ! c/w Maybe Maybe (Boram Solo)
Regular Edition G: バニスタ! c/w For You (Jiyeon Solo)
Regular Edition H: バニスタ! c/w Do We Do We (Qri Solo)
Regular Edition I: バニスタ! c/w Love Suggestion (Hyomin Solo)
Regular Edition J: バニスタ! c/w Happy Rain (Areum Solo)

Needing to buy 10 editions to get all the b-sides seems like overkill to me.

バニスタ! (Bunny Style)


Are you sure it's not Bunny Star ?
Anyway, it sounds like playboy outfits and ass wagglang to me... I guess that's what it's come to after the debacle in summer and they're not allowed to make stuff like Day by day anymore.

After having it seen two times from start to beginning (had to abort the third "try"), I can see it being somewhat interesting for otaku that just want to fap.
But I find it boring.

Probably the most talented member of the group currently, and ridiculously under-utilized.
