T-ara get Lovey Dovey.

Anyway, it's 20 minutes long and doesn't make much sense (and it only has Qri, Jiyeon and Eunjung in it). But the story isn't the point. The point is that CCM like to make long, high budget MVs.

Edit: A friend has told me that this is a sequel to Cry Cry. Which was 15 minutes long. I didn't watch it so maybe that's why I'm so confused, but I refuse to go watch an old MV to understand a new one.

It's also confirmed for five versions and then they'll probably release it in Japan as an excuse to make another MV.

Catchy, though.

That's bullshit.
Why is there no Soyeon ? :<

I only listened to the first two minutes, but the melody there is quite ok.

I saw Cry Cry, so Lovey Dovey makes a whole lot of sense. I highly recommend watching Cry Cry to get a full understanding because it's sad just like K-drama's are want to do.

Lovey Dovey sounds just like Rolly Polly though.

T-ara~ why you no have nonsensical concept that has no relation to the actual song with flashy costumes and sets?!

I kid. I think the Cry Cry - Lovey Dovey drama thing was a pretty cool concept. Lovey Dovey is ridiculously catchy. :thumbsup:

I'm not a hater, but it further proves what I've been saying for years: these girls should do other things besides sing :whistling:
In other words, I found the girls' acting ability quite impressive!

I wouldn't be surprised if when T-ara disbands sometime in the future they all become full-time actresses. Nearly all of them already do steady acting and they are with a huge movie/tv company.

I think a few of them were trained to be actresses and then it was decided they would join the group.

It's basically Roly Poly 2, but this song is so catchy. GET IT OUT OF MY BRAIN.

Why does that flat ass get so much attention ?

I'm starting to like the song, even if it's dumb.
Having Soyeon as the center for a long time and not the one with the weird eyes for once also helps.

The preview for the Japanese Roly Poly MV is out, but now there's no working links.

It's a huge step down from the original.

In the live version of Lovey Dovey you can see the pretty funny and cool dance:

It is very reminiscent of late 80s stuff.

EDIT:
@Anderei; There are some clips of it in this report:

Yeah, the dance wasn't what I was expecting at all. I almost cracked up watching Boram dance in the comeback live. It made her look like a spazz.

I came across this gallery of a fan signing/handshake-like event and thought I'd share it since there are some funny pictures in it:

EDIT:
And I've never seen an online community more anal about copyrighting their (stolen) pictures on their sites than the Koreans with their pop idols.

Way late, but I hadn't seen the dance practice posted. I actually LOVE this dance, it's flipping hard to shuffle in unison, make it look good and sing during it. This promotion cycle has slightly changed my view of T-ara's talent level. :lol:

Also, those pictures just confirm that Eunjung never looks bad. It's like a weird talent. Photo ready 100% of the time.

That's some bitch-ass cool dancing.

What do you mean by "this promotion cycle" ?

T-ara's problem isn't necessarily that they lack talent, it's that they're lazy performers. I'd say it's half their insane schedule and half general apathy since they've been like that since debut.

By "this promotion cycle" I mean Lovey Dovey promotions.

Anderei, I do and don't agree. On one hand they're definitely really low-energy on stage compared to other acts, but their vocals in particular have never been especially good. Their schedule is bananas, though, even by idol standards. I'm shocked they can blink most days, so lethargic performances don't surprise me.

The only song they've ever sounded decently in is the one they released predebut that I'm ashamed I can't remember. It was actually really good.

Their songs are usually sung in a "normal" tone and not hyper-active, so I don't really see a problem with their performances.

There's one good live of it, and the video is terrible quality, unfortunately.

This is really mean and awful.

It's worth noting this statement was released 2 days into T-ara's first vacation in 3 years. One not even all the girls got to go on. How these girls haven't had a mental breakdown I don't know.

Wow. I want to punch that asshole in the face and then make him run on the same schedule they were on for years. Oh yeah, and also include the mental of strain of constantly being told you aren't good enough. Ugh. It's getting hard to enjoy the music when you know how shit they are treated behind the scenes. :(

edit - and yes, I am a fan of the "ever changing group lineup" group of forever, changing members in an established group that has no history of a constant changing lineup is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. Start a new group with your upstarts and let them take over T-ara's popularity.

I agree, whenever I encounter these things it makes it really difficult to enjoy the music. I understand that being hard-working is admirable, but this just seems abusive. I want the talent to love the music too, if possible, or at least not suffer to produce it.

T-ara have never seemed very close nor do they seem to work well together as a team. I don't think many of them enjoy being in the group and I'm not sure they ever did. I think half of them would prefer just to act full-time, rather than be idols.

In the event he's not bluffing, Boram and Qri seem like the most likely candidates to get the shaft, in my opinion. Boram because she's not popular, and Qri because she's dead weight.

Reading your link text I was expecting a TV/radio host or some other "celebrity" to say it.
But the CEO of their company !?
What a fuckface.
