That’s right…I dead!
Yes! T-ara goes and does it again! Seriously, how do they do it? How do they release singles that always are sure to have that song that I will always put on repeat until I wear out my eardrums?! Seriously, every single they release, be it a foreign one (Bunny Style, baby bunny style!) or the units (Why you hatin’?!) there is always a song that I just stupidly watch so many times in a single day it’s ridiculous! Sometimes it’s not always the A-sides but the couplings like in the case of Day by Day. I mean Day by Day is really good in and of itself but I won’t be watching ten different videos of them performing it in a row from different TV shows. Thankfully, it had ‘Don’t Leave’ to back it up. I really love that song!
And their latest ‘No. 9’ joins the record for addiction! I have already downloaded all performances of it I could find and watch them back to back! Never have I watched a song back to back so many times like I do T-ara’s! And I never get tired of them! Not even my lovely NMB48 pulls this off as out of their eight singles only five qualify for repeat!
And of course as always, bundled with the awesome song that is pleasure for the ears, along comes those signature dances I love them for so much! I really can’t explain their dances and what they do to me. At a glance they look like real simple moves which ignite the dancer in you to try them out and it is then you find out the secrets within! No wonder the girls sometimes get injured, like Jiyeon was this time around. I have watched the dance for this number enough times to realize where she would have sprained her knee joint at.
Anyway putting Idol abuse on the side, there’s another thing I’ve noticed about T-ara singles. That is that they all seem to feature a member in turn with a bit of exception to Jiyeon. Which is understandable as she is the Face of T-ara. Though there seems to be some pushing going on over the surface, beneath it all Jiyeon still breaks out prominently reminding us who the real Center is. Examples of this ‘push’ I am talking about are Boram in ‘Roly Poly, Hyomin in ‘Day by Day’, Areum in ‘Sexy Love’ and now Eunjung in No.9. Surely, you see it too and I am not just delusional? I wonder who will be next! Qri most probably.
Yeah, Eunjung really shone here from her total massacre of dat intro and crazy notes to her awesome dance skills. I mean not that she is the best dancer there because I really can’t tell. All these girls are just crazy good! Either they are perfectly in sync or they are all monstrous good! I mean okay, there are areas where you know someone dominates, like Soyeon at singing and devouring souls!
Seriously, does anyone else feel like they are losing a part of themselves every time Soyeon is on screen! I swear it feels like she is mysteriously eating your soul! And her camera skills are equal, if not better than my Goddess’. I ain’t even bluffing! You all know how crazy those Korean TV cameras work yet she always seems ready for it as soon as one zooms in on her! Scary! Her eyes are not as intimidating as Jiyeons but it’s like seeing a monster in a rabbit’s skin!
Speaking of Jiyeon…Oh my Goddess! I am really, really disappointed that we did not get another drama PV for this single! That teaser really got me! I was hoping for another awesome dramatic PV that would surpass Day by Day but alas! All we got was less than 3min of being stranded in the wilderness! Like, are you frikkin kidding me!! Okay, we got to see dat Jiyeon and I got to start shipping Jiyeon/Boram but WTF?!! There better be something awesome coming our way meaning this is just part of the whole thing like they did Day by Day or else…bunnies will die!
And why am I suddenly shipping Jiyeon/Boram you ask? Well, I will say that I am aware of SoRam and am a huge shipper too! These two are even more gayly obvious and outgoing than even Mayuki, yes you better believe it! It’s a miracle just seeing them apart when both present. So when I saw Boram hitching a ride in Jiyeon’s car instead of Soyeon’s and then chilling right next to Jiyeon when they got out for some air while Soyeon was like meters away I was like….Are you serious right now!?!! Which is why I was thinking there was going to be a lovely PV with lovely drama where we have Jiyeon and Soyeon fighting over the ultimate GF but alas!
And Boram! I said it already but I will say it again, that girl is so cute to be of the real world! She so belongs in a Japanese game like FF! And her voice! Goddess dat voice! Net to Soyeon’s hers is the one I pick out instantly next. It is just so sexy! I love girls with voice that have a bang like hers. When she her lines come up next I feel ready to melt! And I think we can all agree that she seems to be getting better. Those who are aware will know what I’m talking about. She is far from how she was in the beginning but she is getting there. I was getting kind of worried there for a while but it seems all is well. Well caught between Soyeon and Qri, there shouldn’t be surprises at all I guess.
Yes, I’ve noticed recently how these three seem to be a part of the package! In fact I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a great deal of threesome fics out there about these three…*does a quick google*…yep! Qri still challenges all kinds of formulas with her hair and every time she comes out on top! How does she do it! As if her cute mole on her nose wasn’t a killer point enough on its own she has to pull out all the stops in fashion! She is so the rep of T-ara in that department!
Then there is the Sexy rep of T-ara, Hyomin! Oh Lord! It’s like she oozes sexiness both in spirit and body! Them legs!! Especially when she wears tight pants and does that chacha dnace move…I am not going to tell you what that does to me! You can’t handle it!
No9 is here and I love it so darn much! I still have no idea what the title is all about but I am sure others out there know since Eunjung explained it during one of the interviews but me and Korean are as compatible as water and rocks! In other words, it just flies over my head!
I wish I knew what it was though so I can make sense out of everything. At first I thought it was about Dani but not only is Dani not in the single, Areum too is not here! This should tell you how high I regard this single to still love it so much when Areum, someone who has come and stolen the 2nd spot out of the blue, is nowhere to be seen, or heard! Now one might wonder why I think it’s about Dani when with Areum that makes her the 8th member not 9th thus not No.9 but then I am forced to remind you how bad these guys in charge are at counting!
What am I talking about? Well, first there is 5dolls! As you see above, our very own Dani was featured in this lovely song of theirs but also as you can tell, there is not 5 but 6 members! So why do they call them 5dolls when there are six members!?! Is one of them not a doll? If so why is she wearing the same clothes as the rest! There should be something to distinguish her from the pack!
Secondly, in the same exact performance, guess how they introduced Dani – as T-ara N4’s Dani! Now, as you can imagine I was going bonkers crazy with emotions knowing that she is a member of Jiyeon’s sub-unit! Not only is Areum also a member of said unit but now Dani too!!!
Yes, I know it’s unfair that the other unit QBS only has three members while N4 has the other five but for the love of all that’s holy, Areum/Jiyeon/Dani/Hyomin/Eunjung!! Ahhhhhhh! Also as I said, the other three are like, a ship already so I really don’t think anyone minds that much! Only problem here is…
WHEN IS DANI JOINING THE FRONTLINE!
Seriously, how many singles since Day by Day and have we seen her since then!?!! Noooo! Instead she is performing with a whole different group! Like, is that even allowed! Can you imagine Sayanee being borrowed by Morning Musume!?! Like, WTF!!? Okay, I am calm! I know Korean does this quite often but for the love of God, just let Dani permanently be a part of singles from now on! Use her loli charms to lure the meat in while you still can! Why the hell are you waiting until she is older!?! I mean okay, Korea is different to Japan but we foreign fans are all the same!
Anyway, there you have it. I will be making a pic post about this later with lots of gifs and caps from the both the PVs and live performances so prepare your bandwidth because it belongs to me!
