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.

Sure, but do those awards really mean much? I guess I'm thinking about awards like Golden Disk or something, not awards like 'best dressed' or 'best dance'. (Maybe Korea just like to give out really random awards?)

most awards don't mean much especially if it's one where you only get nominated if you show up so them not going to basically all the year end award shows last year despite having "the top grossing and most downloaded song of 2011" doesn't reflect the strides they've made as a a group nor the record breaking success of "Roly Poly". you can look at all their nominations and wins here

The award for song of the year would pretty much be theirs or at least they will get a bonsang in GDA if they actually went, but they decided to rather focus on promotion in Japan rather than to attend most of the award ceremonies.

Awards aren't everything to them I guess, which is a pretty good mindset imo. They know they had a big success in 2011 and they don't really need awards to confirm that.
