After crying about all the hate she still receives from the green-eyed eunuchs that make up the bulk of Korea’s disgruntled netizens, T-ara‘s Eunjung is trying to wipe the slate clean with a new stage name.
T-ara’s ace will officially be known as Elsie for her upcoming solo single, “I’m Good,” which just so happens to feature chart-topping R&B crooner K.Will.
I’m not crazy about the name Elsie, but hey, at least she didn’t call herself Ha:tfelt.
This whole solo project is shaping up to be pretty interesting so far, and a complete 180 from the previous T-ara solos, Jiyeon’s sad ‘n’ sexy “1min1sec” and Hyomin’s deliciously sleazy “Nice Body.”
The K.Will collaboration is a huge grab for T-ara, and further proof that the girls still have all their industry friends and connections despite dumbfuck netizens believing that everybody hates T-ara just because they do.
I’m not sure how this whole ‘Elsie’ thing will go, but since T-ara’s name will be tarnished for at least another decade in Korea, Eunjung’s got nothing to lose with this stunt.
Whatever happens, I’m just glad that Eunjung is finally going solo. Even without my T-ara stan bias, there’s no denying that she’s one of –if not THE– most well rounded idol in K-pop. Just check her resume, bitch; good singer, rapper, dancer, visual, and actress, charismatic, good at variety, and a top CF-dol before T-ara’s scandal. Your bias just can’t compete with Elsie, so don’t even try.
Look out for “I’m Good” to drop tomorrow.
