After debuting in April and a strong display of their vocals with Good Person for the Cinderella Man OST, many were expecting big things from the 5 member girl group. Afterall, they did not seem to be adopting the cute and innocent concept which most girl groups are affilated with.
But the group's debut was postponed after members, Ji Won and Ji Ae decided to leave the group in early June, citing differences in music style. Mnet Media reacted swiftly by drafting in Jeon Young Rok's daughter, Jeon Boram as a new member. New pictures released today revealed that 2 more new members, Qri and So Yeon had been added, making T-ara a 6 member girl group.
The new pictures of the 6 T-ara members were most probably inspired by Lee Jung Hyun's Joolae concept although they kind of overdosed on the use of white. Although they were donning a yellowish-white wig and baring their shoulders, T-ara looked more feminine and innocent, rather than sexy strong. Mnet Media expressed that compared to their initial bubbly young girl image, T-ara is going for a more feminine concept this time. I wonder if they will still stick to ballads or.... I think I would rather not think about it.
Qri (I wonder if it's pronounced K-ree or Ri).
More of T-ara will be revealed on 7th July although I am afraid that 2NE1's comeback will most likely overshadow anything that they do. No exact dates were given but T-ara are expected to release their song in mid-July and begin their promotions in early August. Ji Yeon will have to do double duty though, promoting with T-ara and filming for her drama, Soul. Even without 2NE1, girl groups like Kara, Brown Eyed Girls and Jewelry will also be making their comebacks within this period. Let the battle begin!
I am not sure if I will still care since Ji Ae is gone.
