T-ara's new member Hwayoung is becoming a hot issue amongst netizens because she is the twin sister of Co-Ed's Hyoyoung. T-ara is set to release their mini album at the end of November and hold their comeback stages in the first week of December with Ryu Hwayoung, who is the younger of the two twins.
It has been revealed that Hyoyoung recommended her little sister as the newest member of T-ara. Hyoyoung was originally scouted to be T-ara's 7th member with Hwayoung debuting in Co-Ed, but after consideration it was decided that Hwayoung is a better fit for T-ara. Hyoyoung is more feminine and shy while Hwayoung is outgoing and a tomboy. Hwayoung is two months older than T-ara's maknae Jiyeon, and it was reported that she has been working day and night for the new album.
In last week's Star Golden Bell, Co-Ed and T-ara starred together. Hyoyoung was one of the stars on the show, and after she introduced herself, T-ara's Soyeon revealed that their newest member was Hyoyoung's younger twin. They joked that they weren't sure if it was actually one person pretending to be two because they looked so identical.
