T-ara 2013 Comeback
After an entire year of total bullshit, it looks like things are finally back on the upswing for T-ara. They’re currently performing to sold-out crowds on their Japanese Treasure Box tour, they’ve stopped playing musical chairs with their members, Dani is out of the way and promoting with F-ve Dolls, Hyomin’s starring in a big Japanese movie, they just got their first post-scandal endorsement deal (some clothing brand in Japan), and best of all, THEY’RE MAKING A K-POP COMEBACK IN OCTOBER!

To say I’m totally spiralling out of control from excitement is an understatement. The new music will be Slay-ara’s first K-pop release as a full group since the elegant “Sexy Love” dropped last September at the height of Hwayoung-gate.

According to Core Contents Media, T-ara will release concept photos and a three-minute teaser video that was filmed in the desert on September 25th. They’ll then release a new mini-album comprised of about 5 or 6 new songs on October 10th.

“After a long time being away, T-ara are pouring a lot of effort into their Korean comeback. We ask for a lot of interest into the song which is traditional T-ara, but better.” CCM stated the new song will be a traditional T-ara song, but only more addictive and with a more focus on the music.

They’ve also got a new Japanese single dropping in November and a possible new T-ara N4 album for America in December, but all that’s irrelevant compared to the K-pop comeback news.

I’ve made a few predictions about what’s going to happen when the Super Six make their triumphant return to the country that shunned them, so here they are.

Netizen Suicide Rates Skyrocket

Realizing what a grave mistake they made by destroying the lives of six innocent girls (seven if you include Ahreum) based off lies and gossip, netizens will take to the streets and commit mass suicide. South Koreans everywhere will rejoice and officially mark October 10 as “Kill Yourself If You Don’t Stan For T-ara” day.

Eunjung Comes Out The Closet

Overcome with emotion by the amount of love and support T-ara’s comeback has received, Eunjung finally admits what we’ve all known for years: She’s a lesbian who’s been doing it bunny style with the ladies for years. The masculine pop diva suddenly finds herself as the unofficial face of the LGBT community across Asia, and ends up appearing on Ellen, Good Morning America, The Daily Show, CNN, ABC News, RuPaul’s Drag Race, and many other shows to discuss her brave story of coming out in a conservative country like South Korea.

Eunjung Wins An Oscar

While promoting in America as an LGBT ambassador, several top directors learn of Eunjung’s status as “the Meryl Streep of Korea” due to her past roles in Dream High, Coffee House, and White: The Melody of the Curse. She’s cast as the female lead opposite Ryan Gosling in a new action/drama film, and the pair subsequently win Oscars for their stunning performances. She also goes on a date with Keanu Reeves and begins to question her sexuality, but that’s another story…

Qri Becomes The Female President

South Korea’s female president, Park Geun-hye, is so impressed by Qri’s leadership during T-ara’s comeback that she resigns and instates Qri in her presidential position. Feeling that title of “president” isn’t cute enough, Qri changes her official title to “Qrieen” and upgrades the country’s name to “Qrirea.”

T-ara’s New Single Is Titled “Lucky Lucky”

Pachinko T-ara

T-ara’s new single is titled “Lucky Lucky” with a gambling concept that compares finding love to winning a game of Pachinko. The MV is filmed in a Las Vegas casino, with separate dance scenes set in the Vegas desert. Below is the official tracklisting for the new mini-album.

    I can’t…with any of these! I’m booking my ticket to Qrirea this second!

  • MIKEE

    OMFG! DEAD!! Oh lawd you have me crying right now! I’m sure the announcement alone has sparked a few suicides. Slay my worthless soul kweens…fucking slay me sideways, I’m ready.

  • JammySmoochie

    Qri Becomes The Female President

    News of the century. Everything else is irrelevant.

  • YASSSSS QRI

    That tracklist.. I’m done

  • Riley Biers

    Fucking dead @ this entire post.

    The track listing is so spot on lmao

  • Dhruv Angrup

    excited for the big comeback…..but the problem is there are many other big comebacks…..iu,busker busker,psy and last but certainty not the least SNSD…so fans should be a bit worried

    • Fuck I forgot. CCM probably assumed T-ara won’t win anything so they’re just going for it.

      Are their specific dates pencilled in for any of the acts you mentioned? I’m so excited for all of them because IU and SNSD are two of my biases, I loved Busker Busker’s last album sooo much, and Psy’s songs are always a blast.

      • Dhruv Angrup

        busker busker on 25th sep,iu on 7th oct,snsd during a bit before halloween,no specific date for psy since yg keeps trolling the shit out of kpop fans…he’s supposed to make the comeback by the end of september…no sign of that happening….

        • Even though IU had a scandal I think her comeback will still be huge. Curious though to see IU and T-ara against each other since they were both such enormous stars who suffered huge scandals.

          • Dhruv Angrup

            yeah iu made a much better recovery thanks to the drama she starred in….

          • FreakyFlyBri

            Really? Because the comments I saw regarding her appearance in her drama were horrendous. Netizens tore her apart. Regardless, I do think she has had an easier time of it than Slayara has. I think it’ll be interesting to see how everybody does in this post “Don’t forgive, or forget” era that K-netizens seemed to have recently entrenched themselves in. We already know that at while T-ara may not be the digital queens they once were, they at least have their dedicated fanbase to fall back on, which will help them when it comes to their album sales. At this point I’m just happy they’re making a comeback, I’ve missed them badly and I just didn’t get the same joy from T-ara N4 that I get from all six of them.

          • Dhruv Angrup

            the drama did well..that’s what matters….there will be always some people who keep on pestering even if nobody cares….

          • FreakyFlyBri

            The drama didn’t do badly, but it didn’t exactly live up to expectations, either, especially when you consider that some of the dramas that preceded it on its network were scoring in the high 40’s while You’re The Best, Lee Soon Shin scored in the 20’s. I have no idea how much of that was due to IU’s appearance in the drama, or how much of it was due to bad characterization on the writer’s part but it’s worth noting that it wasn’t a runaway smash. Not trying to be a downer, just being realistic.

    • Johnnyyy

      Only TTS is coming back. Tiffany teased their comeback earlier this year. They’ll still be a MAJOR competition though.

      • Dhruv Angrup

        nope…the latest comeback during halloween was called a full group comeback in naver…..

  • Riley Biers

    also jw what the fuck happened to Hilary Duff’s new music

  • Nicole Naeun

    HOW DARE YOU CALLING OUT THE MERYL STREEP OF KOREA HAM EUNJUNG AS A LESBIAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Kween Eunjung is a feminine, girlish, girl-next-door lil’ princess who’s chased by many boys and men from new born babies to elderly ahjussis! Please reflect on yourself!

    • Corsa

      WOHOOOOO!!! FIGHTING!! ur damn right dude. EunJung is a GIRL.. G-I -R-L
      HAHAHAH XDD

  • disqus_vOweumIgzi

    Regardless of if I make my mind about the scandal , these girls absolutely slay. I wanna like them more then SNSD but Slayara don’t have the goddess Hyoyeon.

    Queen Qri will snatch wigs.

    Is it just me or does Jiyeon seem like a cunt? she always looks so flawless, cold and bitchy. She needs to be my fag hag!

  • 364Leinad

    I am sorry, but the news of a T-ARA comeback has already pre-snatched your biases weave :(

  • t-error the antis

    THIS IS THE FIRST MY FIRST TIME HERE AND I HAVE TO SAY ….AM FUCKING IMPRESSED !!

  • t-error the antis

    LET THE REALY QUEENS FUCKING SLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY

  • LovEunjung

    Eunjungs not a lesbian (although it is every fangirls dream ;)) who sees her this way? Or masculine! Lol and even though this is in support of T-ara you’ve just given netizens ammunition to attack her and she’s always the one that gets attacked because she’s the nicest. Kudos to you for your humour but lay off real life events as netizens can take anything and make it something, usually false! Should they come across your article that is.

    Excited for this comeback, Queens have been waiting a long time ! Super proud of their hardwork and resilience! Hwaiting! :D ♥♥♥

    • SoNotIntoThis

      You’ve not been reading Jacques’ stuff for long, have you?

  • Andi

    I know this word is severely overused by pop music fans, but T-ara are fucking FLAWLESS. They have one of the best (and most interesting) discographies for a K-pop girl group, and for me T-ara’s kinda like Britney in that they can do no wrong when it comes to their music. I really hope they regain their status as one of Korea’s top girl groups; a) they deserve it and b) they’re a lot more interesting than 2NE1 or SNSD (sorry Jacques, I know how much you stan them).

    • aside from the snsd shade this is everything i say about t-ara ever since i first heard the mindboggling masterpiece “bo peep bo peep”!

  • i’m really glad ccm is bringing them back altogether this year!

    You forgot to add the instrumental track to that list. But probably that is what KKS would do so he can include it later in the repackage.

  • Thelma Herrera

    LOL

  • christy

    wtf?! seriously bullshit about it !

  • NiksJiDinoFan

    “REGRETFUL”. That’s how Queen’s who left during the scandal would probably feel >:))

    Let us just pray that “Sexy Love (Remix Ver.)” sounds something like this.

    T-ara sẽ không làm cho chúng tôi thất vọng. Sau mọi sự cố xảy ra thì tình cảm và sự tin tưởng của tôi dành cho họ vẫn như vậy, vẫn không hề thay đổi. Tôi tin rồi một ngày không xa T-ara sẽ đứng lên và gầy dựng lại được danh tiếng khi xưa. CHÚNG TÔI LUÔN ỦNG HỘ VÀ YÊU MẾN HỌ
    T-ARA FIGHTING !
    I LOVE T-ARA SO MUCH
