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.

This is ridiculous. I don't personally listen to T-ara often but I can tell these girl have busted their asses and have worked hard for the awards and fans they have received. They just received time off after basically doing promotions for 3 years straight. This is some bullshit. I hoe the girls he does "let go" move on to do great things because honestly they deserve better. Ps...that KKs guy is an asss!

It's also stupid because they train so hard to get into a band, practice their songs, work their socks off, and for what? KKS to kick them out? What about all they've worked for? Does it mean nothing?

What a horrid idea. While there are members who are undoubtedly more talented than others the group's popularity lies in its strength as a unit. This is not going to blow over well.

This is intended to introduce the principle of a competition so the opportunities aren't given to the members who are prideful and lazy.
Or you could encourage teamwork instead and not foster a potentially cuthroat environment....

Right? I don't know how making them hate each other could possibly help.

instilling fear that they are replaceable and can destroy them easier than he has been to make them. he already made it clear that they will not be able to cross him (sue and/or leave) without being banned from the industry (statements from his stance during kara crisis).

ANYWAYS if he's planning korean concerts and a whole tour in japan this summer and also to open their official fanclub in july he couldn't be dum enough to do something that would convert all their fans into antis like i plan on doing if anything happens to QRI!!
quietreveries 15th-Mar-2012 01:58 am (UTC)
this seems pretty messed up :/
i wonder if they'll add 5doll members to the current line up
superjesster 15th-Mar-2012 01:58 am (UTC)
What the fucking fuck?
I hope the girls do drop out then and move on to do bigger and better things because it's clearly not going to happen with CCM.

They get a week of vacation for the first time in 3 years, and they get called "Lazy".
Dumbass, this man is.
bloodyhanie 15th-Mar-2012 05:09 am (UTC)
no vacation for 3 years, minimum sleep, overworked with various appearances, flying back & forth btw korea and Japan and they still get called lazy & prideful. I must be leading a comatose life right now.
