T ara Biography
- T-ara (Â /tiÃ‹ÂˆÃ‰Â‘Ã‹ÂrÃ‰Â™/; Korean: ÃÂ‹Â°Ã¬Â•Â„Ã«ÂÂ¼, Japanese: Ã£ÂƒÂ†Ã£Â‚Â£Ã£Â‚Â¢Ã£ÂƒÂ©, often stylized as T-ARA or TÃ¢Â™Â”ARA) is a South Korean girl group that debuted in 2009 under Core Contents Media. The meaning behind the group's name, which is based on the word "tiara", comes from the idea that they will become the "queens of the music industry". Before their debut, there was a high level of interest in the group as they were called the "Super Rookies" and had been training for three years prior. Originally a five-member group composed of Jiae, Jiwon, Eunjung, Hyomin, and Jiyeon, they released their first song "Joheun Saram" (Ã¬Â¢Â‹Ã¬ÂÂ€ Ã¬Â‚Â¬Ã«ÂžÂŒ, "Good Person") for the soundtrack of the Korean drama Cinderella Man in April 2009. After Jiae and Jiwon withdrew from the group in June, T-ara debuted as a six-member group with the addition of Boram, Qri, and Soyeon in July 2009.
