After working in the entertainment industry for years, T-ara has announced that they'll finally be opening their very own fan club!
The reason why the girls have been lacking a fan club up to this point is because of their agency's CEO, Kim Kwang Soo. Kim Kwang Soo has never established a fan club for any of his artists, and T-ara was no exception. The girls had begged him several times, "Our wish is to make an official fan club."
But Kim Kwang Soo's vigilant stance finally cracked after he watched their undying commitment to succeed, as evidenced by T-ara's "Lovey Dovey" earning numerous #1's on music sites and programs.
On January 21st, Kim Kwang Soo spoke with Star News and shared, "I still believe that a popular artist should not be limited to a specific group of fans; instead, they should receive love from the masses. The members of T-ara have always asked to create a fan club whenever there was an opportunity. I know that T-ara felt lonely while other artists received support from their individual fan clubs. However, I did not create one because I felt that T-ara needed to become a stronger group who attracts the interest of the people."
He added, "After 'Roly-Poly', 'Cry Cry' and 'Lovey Dovey', I feel like T-ara has officially become a popular girl group. That's why I decided to discontinue my 30-year tradition and make a fan club for them."
Kim Kwang Soo concluded, "Starting from this moment, we will begin to form a large fan club. It will be completed around summer. The girls still don't know about this. It will be a good Lunar New Year's gift for them".
