On August 20, Sulli posted a photo on her Instagram of her and (Netizen's talented fave ex-Kara member) Goo Hara in a large pink “Johnson’s baby oil” t-shirt. She wrote, “Friendship photo with Hara. Hara that I love.” The photo appears to be taken by Korea's own Terry Richardson, Rotta. Knetz are not happy because of the Lolita themes the picture portrays.

The Collaboration Episode 4 + The Program Is Being Cancelled?

-> Episode 4 Subbed

Note: Apparently there have been no official news articles about this so don't believe it just yet, but people are saying the show is cancelled

"The Collaboration was set to last for 10 episodes but it will end at 5 due to the current controversy between Korea-China. The last episode will air this Thursday."

Furthermore, the Chinese members were supposed to attend an event, Busan One Asia Festival, with the Korean members, but apparently they are now off the list.

T-ara expected to win Billboard's Fan Army Face-Off

Girl group T-ara are in the finals of Billboard’s Fan Army Faceoff for the second year in a row.

In the on-going 2016 Billboard Fan Army Face-Off, T-ara are up against 30 Seconds to Mars led by well known movie star, Jared Leto.

Originating in 2014, the Fam Army Face-Off pits fans of different artists against each other in a tournament format to determine the most powerful fandom.

In 2014, 30 Seconds to Mars’ Echelons wrestled against Big Bang‘s VIP for the championship; VIP took home the win. In 2015, T-ara’s Queen’s succeeded over One Direction‘s Direction in what was a grand scale semi finals and eventually took the win from Beyonce‘s Beyhive in the finals.

Currently, Queen’s hold a strong lead with 43,576 votes against Echelon’s 11,158 votes. 10 days still remain to vote but it looks like T-ara can already expect another win for the 2nd year in a row. (currently T-ARA are at 108,698 votes and 30STM at 20,141 votes)

T-ara has been enjoying popularity in China for several years, which certainly shows in the fans’ votes for the Fan Army Face-Off. Meanwhile the group will be preparing for the 2016 T-ara Great China Tour Concert In Shanghai Final to be held on September 17th.

its so sad how many people treat t-ara as a joke and discredit their legacy. this might be "meaningless" to some people but the fact that they won last year made the girls so happy and got them on variety shows so
