T-ara – Receive 300 Million Yen Offer

Having debuted in 2009, T-ara 티아라 is a comparatively new girl group in South Korea. There were high expectations for the group because the girls had been training for three years before their debut.

However, after T-ara released their first song “Good Person” for the TV series “Cinderella Man” OST, two members Lee Ji-ae 이지애 and Yang Jiwon 양지원 left the group, ruining the original plans for debut. In July 2009, T-ara regrouped and added three new members to form a six-member girl group.

T-ara is also known as Tiara. In July 2010, the 17-year-old high school girl Ryu Hwa-young 류화영 joined the group in a surprise event, turning T-ara into a seven-member group. The official leader of T-ara has also changed from Ham Eun-jung 함은정 to Jeon Bo-ram 전보람. “T-ara will return with a stronger image,” their company Core Content Media stated.

Last week, T-ara received an offer worth 300 million yen (around 3.7 million dollars) from a Japanese company for their representation in Japan. According to the Japanese company, it was a great amount of money for any girl group.

Core Content Media commented, “The Japanese company thinks highly of T-ara as they are not only singers, but they have also been very successful in dramas, films as well as in other areas. Moreover, they are impressed with the girls’ beautiful appearance.”

“It was difficult to arrange a time for T-ara to promote further in Japan. However, as their individual activities and preparations for their 2nd album are coming to an end, we’ll decide soon if T-ara will venture into the Japanese market. Any promotions in Japan will probably come after promotions of T-ara’s 2nd album.”
