^ Protip: If you're going to bitch about a pop singer's age, the best place to do so is probably not a Morning Musume board.

Also: "The newly added 8th member of T-ara is 18 years old and possesses a great visual [...]"

OH GOOD, I WAS WORRIED FOR A SECOND THERE THAT SHE'D BE ASS-UGLY.

The only reason I don't like that one is 14 is because it puts a huge gap between her and everyone else. Boram and Qri are 26 this year. At least the other girl is close in age to Jiyeon and Hwayoung.

She looks like a T-ara member, though. Good to see CCM isn't trying to make it any easier to distinguish these chicks.

You're serious !?
I've done that before with MM too.

And I do consider T-Ara have a far sexier image than MM.

Here's the 14 year old a little more idol-ed up. Her name is Dani:

But she's not joining them until DECEMBER. So, uh, see you in six months Dani.

Ngl, I don't think this group will benefit from new members in the slightest LOL T-ara is one of those groups where everyone I know likes a few songs by them, but if you asked them to name the girls, they'd be able to name MAYBE two.

Well, she's typical young, cute and good looking just like most K-Pop idols nowadays.

I also see the new members as just an asshole move by T-Ara's absolutely disgusting management.

I'm feeling sorry for the new and the old members.

She looks a little like Sulli did when f(x) debuted. Kind of. I just went and looked at early Sulli pictures. No she doesn't. She reminds me of someone though and I cannot for the life of me remember who.

Slap some heavy eye makeup on her and she'll fit right in come December.

I'm cool with her being 19, but I'm still not keen on the idea of new members joining.

EDIT:
These outfits are so abysmal I actually feel obliged to post them:

Yeah, they've been looking like messes lately.

Some pictures from Day by Day (the upcoming song):

Dani is in the MV (she's in black). I guess the redhead is the other new girl.

No, I legitimately can't tell most of T-ara apart, even after 3 years. They're one of the only groups that's ever given me trouble.

I guess this time the MV will be at least 20 minutes. hah

The short film for "DAY BY DAY" is out, and it's only the first part! It's post-apocalyptic with some nice computer generated settings, has a "bloody screen--so real" moment, and is complete with crossbow and sword play.

It doesn't seem like Jiyeon had very fun practice sessions.

It's pretty cool that they make a whole movie about introducing the new member (I guess part two will include the second new member), eventhough I'm still opposed to the idea of adding new members.

The whole thing gives me a FF7's Midgar vibe.

Day By Day's melody is DEFINITELY from somewhere else.

Live preformance of "Day by Day"

The new girl is pretty good ^^

And all girls got a little singing this time.
I was scared this would be a "Cry Cry" part 2,where Qri and Boram is just back up-dancers, but they all got to sing a little in the song :D

I was playing "Day By Day" today, and someone around me noticed that it sounds similar to Britney Spears' "Criminal". I definitely could hear the similarities and tried to match the tracks in an audio editor.

I first transcribed (by ear, so they're guesses!) the prominent melodies from both songs to find their keys: "Day By Day" being in A Major and "Criminal", C Major. This allowed me to shift the pitch of "Criminal" by -3 semitones.

The tempos of both are sligtly different, with "Day By Day" being 120 bpm and "Criminal", 110 bpm. In the editor, I sped up "Criminal" by 10 bpm.

Despite the song structures being fairly close, I decided to shift parts of the song to match verses, choruses, and bridges.

In the final mix, the tracks for "Day by Day" and "Criminal" are panned 70% toward the left and right channels, respectively. It's not so much a proper mashup but to make comparision easier.

They're definitely super similar, but I feel like Day by Day's melody and arrangement are a bit more... fully realized? I don't know how to word it. Someone was for sure ~inspired~ by Criminal.

And lol, WOW @ at that performance. Things like that are why I simply can't be a real T-ARA fan. They put out some awesomely catchy pop songs but their live performances are mostly embarrassing. I'm not asking every group to be BEG, Sunny Hill, or SPICA, but live, T-ARA feel below average even for an idol group,

They were alright when they first debuted, but I don't think they have the energy for a truly good performance anymore. Not the way they're worked like dogs.

I don't know who the blonde is, but she's wearing a hair vest right?
