Hyomin Jiyeon Solo
Fuck T-ara N4 — 2014 is all about T-ara SOLO!

Core Contents Media has just announced that both Jiyeon and Hyomin will be dropping solo projects in April. Not only that, but they’re being produced by frickin’ Duble Sidekick and Brave Brothers!

Please take a moment to attach your oxygen masks before reading any further.

According to their agency, Jiyeon will work with Double Sidekick to promote as an artist with a style similar to Sunmi. Brave Brothers will help Hyomin debut as a singer with an opposite image from T-ara. The two distinct personalities will be exposed as different from the original and traditional image of T-ara.

The agency is putting in full work to prepare each member for a solo debut. After T-ara, both members are interested in being active as solo singers again. [Via Tiara Diadem]

Oh god. Jiyeon serving us Sunmi realness with Duble Sidekick, producer of such classics as “Countryside Life” and SISTAR’s “Give It To Me,” and style icon Hyomin coming to obliterate the charts with Brave Bros, producer of AOA’s “Miniskirt,” Sunmi’s “Full Moon,” and every other SISTAR song ever made.


Despite the fact that I stan for both Sunmi and HyunA like you wouldn’t believe, these raggedy future flops better glue their weaves in tight because Jiyeon and Hyomin are about to lay the smack down on the girl group solo scene in a way that hasn’t been seen since Lee Hyori murdered Fin.K.L. with “10 Minutes.”

A few years ago when T-ara were on top I would’ve said that Eunjung and Soyeon were the ideal candidates for solo debuts, but not any more. Jiyeon is the youngest and still most popular member of the group, so her solo is a given, while Hyomin has kind of snatched the title of T-ara’s most well-rounded and charismatic member from Eunjung ever since reinventing herself as a professional fashionista. Sorry Jungie, you’re still my bias, but we both know that Minnie kind of stole your thunder.

    CRYING!!!!! Queen Hyomin will finally be able to truly shine! Everyone will be slayed by her flawless vocals and powerful stage presence. Having them both promote at the same time is so revolutionary and iconic. I’m so ready for this!!!!!


  • Crying and puking rainbows right now, this will be marvellous.

  • Josh Chinnery

    Now *this* is interesting :3 Le me can’t wait for the wig snatching that shall commence from this…

  • 364Leinad

    I am extremely confused as to why every act in the music industry has not disbanded yet after hearing this news.

    • Nicole Naeun

      I heard Starship has put Hyori on indefinite hiatus and Ailee has booked a flight ticket to US to continue study.

  • Marhaebwa

    I’m not even gonna lie. I’m here and strapped into my seat for a Hyomin solo.
    I just don’t wanna disappointed like I have been with so many comebacks/debuts this year.

    • dumbass

      seriously this year has sucked aside from like 5 comebacks. I’m ready for t-ara to come back and just slay everyone.

  • Nicole Naeun


    I’m excited for both but I gotta be honest, I’m more excited for Hyomin’s sex-crazed modern hip-hop future classic that will murder HyunA’s Bubble Pop and Ice Cream!

    But I’ll let the end products decide cause you’ll never know if Jiyeon ends up being the new Lee Hyori. Omg so excited for these projects!

  • i was hoping they KKS released that t-ara69 sub-unit after HyoJung’s glorious run on immortal song 2, but i’m pretty satisfied with this as well.

    jiyeon is currently my bias and hyomin has always slayed me the moment i laid eyes on her sexy aegyo in “bo peep bo peep”.

    now what saddens me – although it’s just a fanboy concern – is how viciously CCM insist to promote these girls by comparing them with others. it’s so ridiculous because t-ara are fucking leading trend-setter on this ripping off genre that is k-pop, but CCM is always releasing their new projects by making them look like simple imitators. it irks me, and also fuels the haters with comments :(

  • Jiyeon baby

    Jiyeon i am waiting !!

  • UncleFan


  • gRmix1234

    this is Awesome!
    but apart of me is kinda afraid
    maybe CCM will make something on T-ara like for example one of them will be Solo artist! and i dont want that to happen! t-ara would not be the same if one them is not around!
    they should let Qri showcase her voice too

  • KingBeaArthur

    Here for Hyomin; waiting with baited breath for Jiyeon.

  • Kris

    Here for both of them to snatch the tracks from all the gurls. I did really want Eunjung to have a solo though, or at least give us a T-ARA N4 comeback after these two start battling each other for All Kills and music show trophies

  • HeraldC

    Such a glorious day, made me wanna go outside and light up fireworks for some reason.

  • yosafbridge

    There are candid videos of Jiyeon just dancing on stage with several hundred thousand views on Youtube. Yeah, if CCM plays it right and comes out with an MV showcasing her appeal, Jiyeon’s solo career could really take off. Girl is so effortlessly compelling on screen and has so much visual presence, it’s ridiculous. There are many beautiful ladies who have no onscreen/on-stage presence. Jiyeon OTOH has “IT” just oozing from her pores.

    • it’s funny you mentioned onscreen/on-stage presence because, continuing CCM’s stupid modus operandi, in comparisson, i’ve been highly underwhelmed by sunmi’s live performances of “full moon”. i agree it’s great thing to replicate the choreography seen in the MVs, but a live audience or broadcast requires interaction with… well, THE AUDIENCE!
