T-ara 


T-ara’s new song Roly-Poly (롤리폴리/Lolli-polli) on their mini-album John Travolta Wanna Be has a retro theme. I like it. It’s very addictive! That goes for the choreography too.

This version of the video is called “part 2″, but I consider this to be the “music video version”, because the other versions are the (long) story verson, the stage version and the “world wide” version with clips of fans dancing.

I think Ji-yeon and Eun-jung pull off the theme the best. Hwa-young looks a little awkward somehow. So-yeon’s also great, but she could wear a costume made out of decapitated puppies and I’d still go “awww… wub wub” :) .

The mini-album only has two new tracks (Roly-Poly and 진짜 진짜 좋아해), the rest are remixes of songs from Temptastic. The remixes are embarrassing. They all consist of a generic techno intro, then the regular song with a sound effect here and there, then a break, then the regular song and finally some sound effect at the end. 왜 이러니 even starts with some guy going “let the paRRRRRty begin” *shivers*. They should’ve just released this as a two track single. I’m hoping Roly-Poly will be included on their next full-length album.

 

This has actually been one of my least favourite T-ara songs. Mainly due to the voice effects, I think. The video is pretty nice though. The members are wearing the outfits from the cover of their repackaged album Breaking Heart.

Eun-jung looks pretty hot in this video. The end is funny too (Oh, Eun-jung… :lol: ).

 

TTL was the first T-ara song I heard. It was a collaboration between T-ara and the boy band Supernova (초신성).

I have another clip of this song where they’re wearing a bit foxier outfits. I’ll probably post that later on, but I thought the clip above was a better performance over all.

After I got into T-ara I thought I’d check out Supernova too. They’d just released a new video (I don’t remember the name right now), but I had to turn it off because of their continuous air-humping :lol: .

 

This is a performance of Lies (거짓말) by T-ara (not to be confused with Big Bang’s Lies). While it’s not one of my favourite T-ara songs, I really like the cute choreography. Watching the live performance makes me like the song more.

I picked this clip mostly based on how good So-yeon looks, but Ji-yeon looks cute here too. So-yeon is my current favourite member of T-ara, but after watching Dream High I had a dream about Eun-jeong, so I’m confused now :lol: .

I’m currently watching the Korean drama series Dream High. There are so many familiar K-Pop faces in this drama. There’s Suzy from Miss A, Taec-yeon and Woo-young from 2PM, Eun-jeong from T-ara and IU ♥. You can also see JYP as one of the teachers. I also recognize some of the actors from other dramas and movies. … Continue reading

 

I posted a live performance of this song about two weeks ago. At that time I wasn’t sure whether or not I liked it.

Since then I’ve been listening almost exclusively to T-ara. When I woke up yesterday my mind was going “yo ma yo ma lova lova, yo ma yo ma supa nova, u hee u hee”, which I take as evidence of Yayaya’s addictiveness :) .

Sorry about the quality (blame GomTV).

Some other T-ara songs I can recommend are: Time To Love, 왜 이러니, 처음처럼, 내가 너무 아파, ma boo and One & One.

 

I went to collect an early X-mas present (for myself) today — yay! I actually got the package two days ago, but I wasn’t able to pick it up until today.

I ordered T-ara’s repackaged album Breaking Heart and their new mini-album Temptastic, as well as SNSD’s Hoot and KARA’s Jumping.

When I placed the order I thought that they were overcharging a bit for the Temptastic mini-album, but now I see why. The CD case is a hardcover photo book (I haven’t opened it yet though) that’s a little larger than usual CD books. I put a CD in the picture for size comparison. The other CD cases are about the size of DVD cases.

Now I’m equipped to enjoy the holidays :) .

 

Yayaya is the title song of T-ara’s new mini-album. I read someone describe it as “a completely brainless but addictive song”. I haven’t listened to the song more than a couple of times, so I can’t really speak on the “addictive” part of it, so I’m just going to post this performance without further commentary XD.

I’ll listen to the mini-album this week. Perhaps it’ll grow on me.

 

Here’s T-ara’s Inkigayo performance of 왜 이러니.

I really like this song. I’ve been playing it a lot the last few days.

“Yayaya” coming up tomorrow (in case you’re curious about the outfits in the intro).

 

I finally found another T-ara song that I like :) . 왜 이러니 (Why Are You Being Like This/wae ireoni) is their latest song and the video features their newest member Hwa-young.

Since I haven’t been following T-ara before, I don’t really know who is who yet. I pretty much only recognize Ji-yeon and, to a lesser extent, Bo-ram.
