Core Contents Media explains Ahreum's solo prospects are different from Hwayoung's

With questions being raised about whether Ahreum's leave from T-ara has any similarities to Hwayoung's departure, Core Contents Media reps have spoken up to clear the air to reveal that unlike Hwayoung, Ahreum is preparing for a solo debut under the agency.


During a phone call with Xsports News, a CCM rep revealed, "Ahreum is planned for a solo debut towards the beginning of next year(2014). She has already received the song and has started practicing."


The rep continued, "Ahreum herself wanted to go solo, and she possesses the talent for that. There were discussions within the company since 5 months ago about Ahreum's solo promotions, and Ahreum knew about it. So with all that set, her solo debut was decided upon."


When the reporter remarked to the rep, "It seems like your image will only look good once T-ara's former member Hwayoung and Ahreum are actively promoting," the CCM rep responded, "We feel sad about Hwayoung's situation. However, because Hwayoung is a rapper, there was some difficulty with solo activities for her. We heard her signing with [another] agency didn't go so well." 


"In the case of Ahreum, she'll be active as a soloist like BoA. Ahreum is still young and can pull off various genres of music including ballad and hip hop. Even from the company's point of view, it is a waste to keep her buried in T-ara," the rep explained.


What are your thoughts? Do you see potential in Ahreum's solo debut or is she more suited as part of T-ara?

 I started to have my doubts when I saw the news about aerum's departure. In what I see, they created a business strategy to lift up T-ara's reputation by creating scandals. 1st, hwa young's dismissal, then to calm it down they added aerum and supposedly dani too. Then suddenly, Aerum's solo career after a year? That's insane. Even if she's that talented experience and time is still needed. So to make the Aerum's story disappear slowly, Dani is added to N4 unit instead of T-ara so no more scandal. They might add another member after a year or half to make things right. This is how business politics play, scandal to make more money

i think CCM made a mistake with the comment "...LIke BoA'..

They could have used another name.. maybe.. like Ailee or something like that.. a rookie soloist.. because referencing a upcoming rookie female soloist to "like BoA" is media-suicide...

its like CCM is comparing her to their "BoA equivalent of CCM"

i wonder why did CCM change their mind so fast.. a few years ago, they were adding her to T-ara and then now they claim that she is super talented that she can go solo..and that it was her choice..

if its her choice, then why add her to a group in the first place? Aint they indirectly hinting that Ahreum is more talented than the other members of T-ara, hence she can go solo, but not the other lead vocalists in T-ara?

BTW who are the lead vocalists in T-ara anyway?

The lead vocalists are Eunjung and Hyomin.

For the people who don't understand how talented Ahreum is, you need to go watch/listen to "Love All". In that one song you can see her amazing raping, which does beat Hwayoung, and her singing which is just as good if not better than Soyeon. Eunjung is my bias from T-ara but even at Ahreum's debut it was obvious that she was the most talented member. Instead of posting rude conspiracy theory, how about you try helping the situation and provide Ahreum with love and support. =)

first of all when we need to evaluate a voice we evaluate it live with no machines... Soyeon has prety strong voice.. since it been chosen by a lot of voters beside Seungyeon and Taeyeon and about rapping Hwayoung was the main rapper in T-ara and not all idols have a gut to inter a rap domain "that spoken by your idol Eunjung" so we find 1 rapper in each group beside 7 or 8 normal singers... beside why the comparison..? we all now that Areum is great singer and rapper no one said not if you want to take out anti's votes around here

I kind of don't like what's being insinuated here. They make it seem like the girl is just bursting from the seams with talent and it was being wasted in T-ara. I'm really interested in seeing how this turns out lol.

No problem for T-ara Because Eunjung and Hyomin are best collaboration Rappers.

Wait! Isn't Ahreum going for hip-hop concept? LOL

I was thinking the same exact thing when I read that. They seriously need to remember the things they say so that their stories match up each time.

You know that CCM considers "COuntryside Life" hip-hop, right? Just look for the articles mentioning Countryside Life's release and you'll see. I get what they meant. Ahreum can rap and SING, while Hwayoung apparently can only rap.There's no way to have a solo career as a female IDOL rapper, right now.

well who's gonna do t-ara's rap parts in their songs? none of the 6 t-ara members can do what hwayoung and ahreum can do. unless dani is a remarkable rapper and joins t-ara like she was supposed to

spicastar

I think Boram can do it. I always felt she had been remarkable at rapping. Dani is a pretty good rapper. She raps in Can You Love Me? By 5Dolls.

Who is this "rep" for CCM? He is a poor poor spokesperson. T-ara was arguably the number 3 group behind 2NE1 and SNSD before their scandal. But i guess T-ara is holding Ahreum back...

Lmao at "burried talent"?? EUnjung sing better than her and way more talent. And I dont like they pull BoA as a comparison, this girl doesn't even have what BoA had when she debut at the age of 13.

If anyone should have a solo career, it should be Eunjung.This girl is all round entertainer as a singer and successful actress

Ahreum is a way better singer than Eunjung...Have you seen the girl actually SING for real? o.O Eunjung is a pretty average singer and not that good live. Hyomin's technique live is way better than her, actually Hyomin is the only one who can do remarkably well live in T-Ara even in hardcore dance songs like Lovey Dovey. Soyeon's voice is better than Eunjung, but she just doesn't have the strength to sing live while dance. I know Eunjung is your bias in T-Ara, mine is Hyomin but I won't lie and say she's the best singer, because she's not.

CCM hasn't really heard this track (https://soundcloud.com/ghkdud4242/ryu-hwa-young) since Hwayoung left T-ara... she can rap, and better than Areum. (My opinion)

Just saying, CCM pls.

@sicafan226 that was the talent CCM released. Ryu Hwayoung never had a chance to truly shine until "Day By Day" or maybe a little bit in the track "우리 사랑했잖아". Give her a chance to rap, she'll run with it and own it.

hwayoung may be a good rapper but i dont think she can be a solo artist.. i have never ever heard a song with only rap in it

@yeonlover There are some instances where rap soloists are viable. It's premature to determine whether or not the solo rap act will work. However, "songs with only rap in it"... you haven't heard any Epik High, Dynamic Duo, Drunken Tiger, e.via, outsider, Lee Jae Won or Verbal Jint... have you? Otherwise you have some required listening to do. ;)

CCM is the most unprofessional and immature company ever. 

T-ara should just disband, and they shouldn't compare ahreum to boA. It's offensive to boA. Or actually t-ara probably woudn't be so bad if they found another agency.

And I wish the best of luck for Hwayoung and ahreum (i hope ahreum joins another company or something) :D

it is a waste meaning they feel ahreum can stand out more as a soloist nothing bad. t-ara is filled with competitions n obviously more popular members so itd be hard for ahreum to shine in the group. dunno y ppl bend words so much, its cuz of that this whole bullcrap is still going on
