Areum's departure raises questions

Netizens raised questions yesterday about an announcement on Wednesday that Areum of the girl group T-ara will no longer be a part of the group after being a member for about a year.

After reading a post that Areum put on her social network service about two weeks ago, fans wonder whether she is stepping down from the team due to any sort of trouble with other members as well as whether the drop-out has been long planned.

"I seriously have nothing more to lose", she said on her Instagram.

"I'm not even scared of dying either".

Along with the post, she uploaded a photo of herself wearing a hat that covers one of her eyes.

Such doubts came after former member Hwayoung left the group in August 2012. Rumors at the time said that Hwayoung had been estranged within the group.

However, the group's agency previously said that Areum wanted to pursue her own music career and that's why she's going solo.

"Don't forget Areum of T-ara, and thank you for the love you have shown me", said Areum.

"You will be able to see a much better and cooler version of Areum, but never forget the performance and the songs I gave as a part of T-ara".

The group will not have any new members, according to the agency. However, T-ara's subunit group, T-ara N4, will have a new member named Dani.

Areum had officially joined the team last July and was one of the members for T-aras sub unit experiment, T-ara N4. According to Core Contents Media (CCM), Areum expressed an interest to leave the team to pursue a solo career, and the reason for the split was due to the fact that Areum had always wanted to pursue hip hop music and had made it clear that she would like to show off a new side of herself by going solo. The other members have respected her decision and that In the future, Areum will be involved in a variety of activities ranging from singing to acting.

The reports also claim that CCM is currently planning on introducing their long term trainee Dani into T-ara N4 for their U.S. activities and the rest of their domestic activities. It seems like a natural addition given that Dani grew up in the U.S .and speaks fluent English, but so far, none of the reports seem to suggest that she will also be joining the main T-ara group. 

Here is a video from CCMs official Youtube channel showing Areum announcing her departure and solo plans. Unfortunately, there are no official English subtitles available.  

This wont be the only member changes amongst Core Contents Media artists with 5dolls having two of their members replaced for similar reasons to Areum and boy group Speed getting two new experimental members.

The first of these restructures will be seen in July with 5dolls comeback. Well continue to update all our readers as further details are revealed about Core Contents Medias artist restructuring.

T-ara's Areum had doubts on fitting in with the group

T-aras Areum had doubts on fitting in with the groupT-ara grabbed viewers' attention with their July 13th Music Bank comeback performance of their new hit "Day by Day." With this song, they immediately shot up to third place on the charts despite only being back for a week.

Among this girl group is new member Areum who brings her soft, fresh voice, and strong stage presence to fans.

Meeting with reporters after her successful debut, Areum said, "It doesn't feel real yet. I remember seeing them on TV and I really wondered if I would be able to blend in with them. I'm so thankful for such great fortune. At first it was very difficult to dance in high heels, but after much practice I've improved a lot."

Recruiting new members into already established groups has very high risks as the outcome could be either failure or success. Because the group is already famous, new members can become known very quickly. However, after the adjustment period, the question is whether or not this member can contribute to the group's fast growing popularity. The member could then face many burdens and responsibilities.

Areum stated, "It was a very great burden. I did not want to damage T-ara's high caliber status and it was quite stressful. But after the debut, I thought 'these unnies really have a lot of experience. It would be good to follow them.'"

A ninth member, Dani, is expected to join T-ara in December. It appears as though comparison between the two will be inevitable. To this, Areum responded with determination, "It doesn't matter. We are two separate people and have different charms. I want to be like Suzy and represent the 94 line as a singer and actress. Like an onion peeling layer by layer, I too wish to show myself one stage at a time and reveal the attraction of my ideas."

Continue to support T-ara as they continue their "Day by Day" promotions and prepare for their upcoming concert!

On July 14th, at Kyunghee University Peace Hall, where T-ara's official fanclub QUEENS held their inauguration ceremony, member Soyeon was asked her thoughts about new member Areum joining the group.

Soyeon stated, "To be honest, there are no uncomfortable points in her addition. Except for the fact of practicing choreography and songs from 6 members, to 7 members, and to 8 members versions. However, instead of worrying, Areum is doing well and she's a friend that is well-mannered, so we became used to it right away. Especially because of Areum, T-ara's weak points, which was average age within the group, have gone down. We're glad that we came back with a friendly image of girl group."

On this new member Areum said, "I will work hard not to become a burden as a new member, so please encourage and like me a lot please."
