Ahreum has been confirmed to be leaving T-ara to pursue a solo career.


After joining T-ara as the 8th member last July, she debuted with "Day by Day" and was also active with T-ara N4 for their "Countryside Life" promotions, but it seems her run with T-ara has come to a quick end. 


In a video posted to T-ara's official fan cafe, Ahreum said, "There's a new update. It looks like I'll be seeing you all as a solo artist. Don't forget T-ara's Ahreum. Thank you for giving me so much love. I felt so much love at the fan meeting and while promoting with T-ara. In the future, I'll be meeting you all with an image that's a few thousand times better than the Ahreum you saw in 'Countryside Life'. The time I had with the unnis will be a fond memory, but Ahreum will most likely be returning solo. Still, the unnis will continue to be active, so don't forget them and don't forget Ahreum either. Ahreum fighting and T-ara fighting. Thank you so much for loving Ahreum until now. Please don't ever forget the songs or performance I had with T-ara. I miss you. I love you." 


The agency stated that the reasons Ahreum is becoming a solo artist are so she could focus on hip hop, which she's always been interested in, as well as to give her the chance to pursue other activities like acting.


T-ara will now be promoting with the six original members Q-ri, Boram, Soyeon, Eunjung, Hyomin, and JiyeonCore Contents Media is also currently deciding whether to replace Ahreum with Dani, who fans were also introduced to last year as an upcoming member, in T-ara N4.

Now that I think about it... maybe T-ara was destined to have only 6 members.......anyways....no more new members, no 7th member.....

i don't know what are they thinking(especially the CEO) they should either NEVER add any new member to T-ara or let the seniors in T-ara(original 6 members) make a solo debut rather than Ahreum who only a year ++ debut as singer.

What is it about this group that they keep going through members like this? Maybe they should just stick the original 6 members and forget about trying making it a 7 member group.

I totally agree. 6-ARA is good enough, no need for 7 members. Especially if they keep dropping members like this.

@cielcl I think After School sub unit, Orange Caramel, is way better than the main group.

I'm happy for Ahreum,I wish her good luck,I'll support Ahreum but...Why they change T-ara members like this?Fans was really sad when Hwayoung leave and they started love Ahreum as a T-ara member and now after a very short time she debut as a solo...And how about Dani?

Hello everyone!! I recently started my own YouTube channel, where I talk about some of the things I like, in this case K-pop and Anime. I will mostly be uploading reviews and maybe some vlogs here and there on a weekly basis. Anyway, I would like to invite you to check the content out and tell me what you think. Here is the link:

looks like everytime a new member arrives the original members work together in order to kick her out

You are inferring conclusions that may have NO basis in fact. I doubt that you personally know ANYONE that is a member of T-ara. Okay, you read this, you heard that, and suddenly a theory popped into your head, and of course that is 'CREDIBLE.' ;-)

I never understood why T-ara needed new members in the first place tbh.

hwayoung was added cuz of her rapping skills (as you can see she was the best rapper in T-ara...until she left), ahreum was added cuz soyeon was pressured to be main vocalist. and she's the best rapper in T-ara since hwa left

more like 'she got bullied as well but the company thought that it would ruin their image and made up an excuse'

idk seems a little fishy.

I really don't want Dani to join T-ara though.. I like the original six members. I don't see the point of them keep adding new members, it's pointless.

Is this a really big deal? It's been on the front page for two days. It's not really controversy. Well, good luck to her? But with the limited knowledge I know about T-ara, isn't Dani a bit too young to join? She kind of looks out of place when standing among them. Don't know what plan CCM is coming up next...

The reason why i totally OPPOSE Dani being added to T-ara is not bcuz she lack looks or training. Its cuz Dani had NEVER WANTED TO BE AN IDOL. SHE HAD NO INTEREST WHATSOEVER IN BEING A SINGER OR DANCER. and yet, CCM just picked her up cuz she 'looked' right. Dani is not at fault. any girl would have just taken this opportunity. but i dont think she DESERVES to be with T-ara who have worked their butts off for the past 3 years

If that's you're reasoning, a lot of idols now should just get kicked out, too. A lot of idols got picked up randomly on the street, too, like SNSD's Yoona and Seohyun and 2PM's Nichkhun.

what really concerns me is why are there so many people that believe anything that ccm spoon feeds you?you know it's bullshit but yet you keep swallowing?T-ara is still alive because of a large established fanbase,so the girls will march on in the face of hatred all for the almighty dollar.

I would say that you do not KNOW for certain whether the members of T-ara are say WORSE people (personally) than (for example) say Girls Generation (everyone's favorites?). You have an OPINION about it; and that is all it really is. You don't KNOW any of these K-pop members personally (my guess). And as far as T-ara is concerned, it is NOT clear that ALL of the members of T-ara wanted anyone removed from the their group; or bullied anyone. I'd suggest that you find AKP articles about K-pop groups that you LIKE them; and post messages there. Does EVERYONE have to percieve T-ara as you do? ;-)

I'll add that these repetitive posted messages of hatred (by you and others) towards T-ara, are NOW beginning to generate exactly the OPPOSITE of what you've intended to accomplish. After one year of it (T-ara/hatred from some), you're moving into a VENDETTA type of behavior. And now, increasingly, I'd guess that more will begin to feel SYMPATHY for T-ara, at this point. NOT YOU, of course; you seem quite consumed with your hatred of T-ara.
