Ahreum's Out, T-ara To Change, And Other Disappointing News From CCM

Ahreums Out, T-ara To Change, And Other Disappointing News From CCM Earlier this week, Core Contents Media, also known as CCM and home to Hallyu flower girls T-ara, announced that the groups newest member Ahreum will in fact be leaving the group to pursue a solo career. This premature departure comes as shocking news to many due to the fact that Ahreum was not officially apart of T-ara until June 2012 and still only recently appeared in Korean T-ara activities with Day by Day and Sexy Love promotions last year and the sub-unit T-ara N4 this past April.

As the dust settled around Hwayoungs contract termination, CCM continued to egg followers on with the promise of two new additions to T-ara, Ahreum and Dani. Much uproar continued as it was revealed that Dani was in fact fourteen years old at the time of the news release, as well as demands to CCM for further and more concrete explanation for Hwayoungs sudden departure. The issue blew up and only ended badly for everyone; T-ara was forced to take a break (a break for T-ara, wow) from the spotlight and CCM was forced to stay out of the tabloids, all for the sake of saving face. Meanwhile, whereas Hwayoung was pulled from the stage and Dani was given her fifteen seconds of fame here and there, Ahreum had yet to appear with the official T-ara stamp.

It wasnt until it was announced that she would appear in be the latest addition to the T-ara N4 sub-unit alongside the three most popular T-ara members, Jiyeon, Eunjung, and Hyomin, that Ahreum finally popped up the official radar.
