    sis do not get too angry, the Japanese did not abandon the T-ARA after the scandal, they sold more physical singles than albums after the scandal and did many shows with more than 15k capacity in the country, China and Japan stayed with them :lover1:

    their contract in Japan was more than 15 million dollars to sign and release only 3 albums, best rookie contract in history! :giftr:
