✨ Gone But Not Forgotten: T-ARA 👑 ✨ [part 2]

In this series I want to go through artists that are gone, but not forgotten. I will go from debut till disbandment or [indefinite] hiatus, remembering the time we had together and look back on their highs and lows.


T-ara is a South Korean girl group, formed in 2009 by MBK Entertainment. A broad array of visual concepts have earned the group a "chameleon-like" reputation. The group officially debuted in July 2009 with the single "Lie". They went on indefinite hiatus on January 3, 2018 allowing the members to pursue their solo careers.

T-ara is my ultimate kpop girl group~ 👑 I still listen to them at least once, but usually multiple times a week. I just love how there's always a song that suits your mood. Stunning, talented, hard working women.

The way MBK treated T-ara... Their CEO kept playing and using them, making it look like they were easily replaceable if they didn't work hard enough and how they constantly forced T-ara into work they clearly didn't feel comfortable with. The way they handled the bullying scandal still makes me extremely angry. We, as T-ara fans, KNEW that Hwayoung lied but in the end, it didn't matter what we said, nobody believed us. There were times I didn't even feel comfortable saying I was T-ara's fan because of all the backlash I would receive. They did NOTHING to protect them. Or, after Soyeon got into a car accident and got permanent back problems, they didn't even make a statement about it and just let people critize her on her "lazy dancing". I also still can't believe their agency pushed them into Sexy Love after their scandal because wouldn't be able to show emotions and their CEO told them to "just do a robot concept". What a shady company.

These women have been through so much, I can't help but be proud of them. They have done well. Their reunion was adorable, so happy to see them again. I hope one day Boram and Soyeon don't feel traumatized anymore by their past. It would be great if, one day, they can re-join them. But more than that, I want them to find happiness.

I would love to hear what you think about these 2 installments! Favorite track, member, concept, album, performance, solo debut/performance? Do you miss T-ara? Because I really do...

Insert picture description

This is it. The news you were all waiting for. The suspense is finally over. You can breathe now. You are free.
BTS' member Jeon Jungkook was named "Sexiest International Man" by People Magazine for 2020. The race for this completely essential title was between Dan Levy (Canada), Keith Urban (Australia), Matthew Rhys (Wales) and Paul Mescal (Ireland) and the 23 years old Korean idol.
Now the question you're all asking yourself is: Who in their right mind think Keith Urban is sexy ? I'm afraid I don't know the anwser.
