T-ara to become 7~9 members, including replacing members



Core Contents Media's CEO Kim Kwangsoo announced that there will be a big change coming in April. Revealed today, the current seven member group could become eight or nine. Whether it's an addition of members, or replacing members, is not yet decided.

The purpose isn't to remove or to add but to give the members who give effort and display their skills more opportunities through activities. This is intended to introduce the principle of a competition so the opportunities aren't given to the members who are prideful and lazy.

Kim Kwangoo commented, "I've had 30 years of experience and have done much with singers starting as rookies. After three years as activities as a singer, pride and laziness is effected. Stress becomes a bigger deal and it gets harder. You can't win the competition with this type of mindset. This is what has ruined a lot of singers. If there's no effort or there is no singing skills, the members will not be given parts (measures) to sing."

Kim Kwangsoo also that to take T-ara onto another level and in order to develop the group further, T-ara's music style and concepts will change, including the group members. More information will be released on April 7th.

Meanwhile, T-ara will create a fanclub and hold a concert in July.

I feel so bad for them. :(

REPLACING? If that happens Qri and Boram are basically out... and I'm saying bye to this fandom.

Aw come the frak on. What do we have to do to get these girls some decent management? This shit's just a bad idea.
nightfrost75 15th-Mar-2012 01:39 am (UTC)
Not even a big T-ara fan but this is some f'ed up stuff.
As much money and popularity as they have and they are being treated this way.

Can CCM just go bankrupt or something? Let these artists sign with some less abusive management.

i think mnet need to take over CCM back from KSS
he's ruining the company and the artists in it
keep FNC on their own( they're doing good though they tend to overwork cnblue and fti too) but CCM need a new sane CEO

That is completely unfair. Really?! There is no need to change the lineup of T-ara! The only thing that T-ara needs is a legitimate vacation.
notyourgeisha 15th-Mar-2012 01:40 am (UTC)
God fuck when I think I can't hate this douche more. He's rolled himself into personal bankruptcy before but still treats himself as some kind of infallible god in business. He must love himself so much and just love to listen to himself talk.
funkaliciousss 15th-Mar-2012 01:48 am (UTC)
ikr. he is the reason why i can't with t-ara anymore. making all kinds of stupid public statements. making them film a billion mvs each with minimal differences. and then calling them lazy when he's just dumb as fuck. PLEASE STOP HIM!!!
laeryn 15th-Mar-2012 01:40 am (UTC)
Isn't that adding more pressure to girls that are way overworked right now...? I don't follow them but I think it's T-ara the group whose members have sometimes complained on twitter, right? This is crazy. This is definitely not how you get the best out of your artists, seriously. Poor girls :(
funkaliciousss 15th-Mar-2012 01:48 am (UTC)
he doesn't think they are overworked though, he thinks that they are LAZY.
meganvio 15th-Mar-2012 01:42 am (UTC)
this is really fucked up :|

1- Guess they gonna be showing emotions in the performances now.

2- Adding extra competition to the competitive system of trainee->debut->relevance = more sad stories of mental break downs and depression for these idols.

3- Laziness and pride has ruined a lot of singers yes, but changing members has ruined groups just as often.

4- lol, I'm pretty sure Soomi is gonna get her spot in the group.

5- uh.... should pretty much cover it. oh n Boram got a 50/50 chance to go depending if her folks still got industry pull.

my first thought tbh, they removed her from coed but kept her on ccm, this probably had a long time coming.

it says it's not decided. which is why i don't get why he keeps talking about it other than to make their fans panic and get press

Qri already doesn't get any lines. :( HDU not give her any lines because she can't sing well on top of this. :(
Also no excuse to not give Boram lines then.

Ridiculous. This makes me very angry as a fan. You can't win the competition with this type of mindset. This is what has ruined a lot of singers. I think being overworked to the bone does this more than their will. Anyone's will to do something will be ruined if the experience is haunted by that mindset. Get out with this quote. Ugh. I hope whoever gets replaced has a great career, because they're probably screwed over by them, sadly. :'(

hopefully Queen Qri becomes a scandalous wig snatching mega star.
drfaith101 15th-Mar-2012 01:47 am (UTC)
He sounds like a fucking moron.

And I'm too tired to even go into a rant. Good luck T-ara tbh.
funkaliciousss 15th-Mar-2012 01:49 am (UTC)
WEEPING BUCKETS FOR QRI RIGHT NOW.

MAY YOU RIP.
