I just watched T-ara’s Japan Tour….
So damn beautiful I think I am going blind!
Damn, there is nothing….nothing! Better than a concert on BluRay, people!
And I have absolutely no regrets that my virginity has been stolen by T-ara!
I actually was waiting for the Tokyo Dome BD but they are taking their fuckin sweet time and it’s already Christmas so since I had T-ara already, I said ‘fuck it’ and started up the concert…
I couldn’t shut down once I started, I was just so blown away!
This thing looks so damn beautiful. I can’t even wait to watch AKB’s Tokyo Dome Concert because…God!
It was all I could do to not capture every damn frame! I had to go through the caps three frikkin times to delete almost 50% of them all and I still was left with over 300!!! So a warning before hand that this post is gonna eat your bandwidth alive!
So many things happened during this concert that I have no idea how the already die-hard fans could have survived it!
This concert was teh it!
Not only did Hwa-young skip out on most of the performance due to injury
But they introduced new member A-reum who went ahead and performed by herself (with back-up dancers) soon afterwards and stole many a hearts with her sexy charms, awesome dancing and cute expressions.
But they did not stop there…
Next up was the other new member, cute and young Dani who actually was sitting in the audience for some reason. I guess she was a fan-girl before she got in T-ara.
The most impressive thing I noticed in this concert was how calm T-ara is in their performance!
I swear to all that is Holy that I have never seen such cool-factor in a concert! The only way AKB, or any other group members would be this calm LIVE is if they were doped up pretty good!
While calmness of this level would be a deciding factor for a boring concert…T-ara pisses on laws of the universe with this one! Their complicated dances are executed so damn well and precisely that they make them look so simple and the don’t even seem to break a sweat!
Leader So-yeon in particular I swear she is a mixture od robotic parts and human skin! She makes it seem like she is in her bedroom practicing at her own pace but she is on the damn stage!
And your eyes and heart just can’t help but watch every damn move they make!
Seriously, I did not fast forward at all during this two hour concert at any time. I confess that there is never an AKB concert I have watched without skipping. B and N LODs I have but the family 48 concerts? No way I would sit through that 100%!
Sorry but it’s the truth!
Any way back to T-ara, their professionalism is one of the charms that hit me right in the heart! I mean they are not perfect, far from it. During rehearsals you see it like how Ji-yeon struggled during the Sexy Love PV making of where she had to do the same thing so many times she almost cried! And yet when you seem them do it, you can never tell!
It’s like they have an actual switch they flip that makes them into super idols!
At the end of this video, the only thought on my brain was that were T-ara to come to Dublin, I would frakking die to get a ticket!
Seriously though, this group’s members are all so damn God-tier that the simple notion of Ace/Centre or even Leader is just so lacklustre! I mean even Zeus being top god among gods had that something that easily placed him above all but with T-ara, between
Ji-yeon, that devours souls by a simple glance
Hot, Hot Hyo-min
Adorable Bo-ram despite being the eldest
Rap-queen Hwa-young (dear, dear Hwa-young)
Fastic Q-ri – I am waiting the inevitable meeting between Tomochin and Q-ri, the infasionables
Dance ballistic Eun-jung (And most popular T-ara member locally)
Sexy new face A-reum
100% Jail-bait and gem-not-in-the-rough Dani
To be the face of such a group one must be seriously above Gods level!
Ji-yeon, what the hell are you?!!!
But I hear that Ji-yeon is going to be replaced as the face.
I will spare you my thoughts on that fact but all I wanna know is who is going to be the next Ace of T-ara? I mean though the older members have what it takes, having been there while Ji-yeon was the Ace kind of sucks to be chosen now so it has to be either A-reum or Dani!
Frankly though, I love those two a lot but I don’t think they are up to the task. Not yet. Ji-yeon is still fresh, as far as Korean Idols go so they should give her some more time before they jump gun. Though I guess this latest scandal might have something to do with the decision.
Doesn’t mean that I have to like it. Nope. Not even one bit.
There was this section where the members challenged some of Japan’s top hits. They were supposed to do it in teams (groups) and Jiyeon going first,
She chose Hyomin and Eun-jung as her team-members to take on EXILE’s Chu Chu Train.
Very refreshing to see a manly song being performed by girls. Though of course T-ara aren’t any other girls.
Next up was So-yeon to pick a team for round two. She samples Hwa-young’s skills but doesn’t seem impressed. Giving up all together, she opts for not going with back-up and decides to take on the challenge herself.
Her opponent is Koda Kumi’s Cutey Honey!
Well, nobody can say she has no confidence but really, if anything, while on stage T-ara members all seem to be out of this world! It’s like the transform into these…monster angels or something so I guess it’s no surprise she could take it on.
Next up is Bo-ram’s turn to pick a team to take on-
Wait a damn minute was that….
Holy shit, it is! Little Dani in Day by Day PV right there…Holy smokes!
If I remember correctly though, by the time this tour happened, DxD had not been out yet so that there was a fuckin spoiler, right? But seeing as this was Japan, probably only hard-core fans jizzed their pant/ies at the tease!
Any who, Bo-ram summons Hwa-young and Q-ri as mates to take on our very own AKB48’s Aitakatta. But of course Hwa-young as we know had hurt herself during rehearsals so she doesn’t appear so it seems that video was pre-recorded which makes sense.
Anyway the two come out in cutesy clothes and I can’t help but chuckle that they are making fun of the ‘idol’ image, though they are quite right.
I would defend AKB any other time saying that they are different from other idol but that was last decade, they are now turning into those other idols with their frilly undies that piss me off so damn much lately! Seriously, any time now when I know a dance move is going to show is what’s under their skirts, I just close my eyes and see nothing because I just can’t handle those under frills!
I hate them!
You used to be great AKB skaato no naka, WTF happened to you?!!
The MCs were very interesting each turn!
The first time, we get answers after seeing a six-member T-ara out of the blue! WTF happened to Hwa-young? Where was she?
We find out soon afterwards when she appears on clutches!
I was so heartened I wanted to jump right through the screen and give her the world’s warmest hug! She explains that she got injured during rehearsals so she apologises that she will be sitting this one out.
I forgive thee Hwa-young, please take care of thy self!
In the next MC, a new member is introduced…
The beautiful and sexy A-reum!
She is called out by Ji-yeon and I swear of this were some Japanese Idol group (or any other really) Ji-yeon would be all over A-reum washing her with hugs and everything! But T-ara is a cool-beauty kind of group so you rarely see that kind of stuff, though it stops not the natural force that is Ji-yeon!
After the introduction, A-reum performs to us a solo cover of some English song that is kind of popular and I dare say had I not known and already fallen for her, I would have at the concert. I know a lot of those present were taken in by her seduction. No other way to refer to her performance really.
The MC after a few more songs, bring the youngest and very newest addition to the Queens…Dani.
She introduces herself in Japanese (as did A-reum) actually, do all Korean idols go to Japanese Language school as a compulsory tactic or something? They all seem to speak it! I mean I have been into Japanese culture for years and I have yet to hold a real conversation!
Magicians they are I tell ya!
Any way Dani introduces herself, 14 years of age, and I almost think the other members would have devoured her were they not on stage! Eun-jung just couldn’t keep her hands off of young Dani and Ji-yeon, her eyes.
Not to worry Ji-yeon, Dani has eyes only for you!
Any way during this MC, the members are still shocked by Dani’s age and how cute she is (she is cute ) and Ji-yeon (who was the youngest until now) comments on how she is already an elder sister (A-reum is young than her too…by a few months enough to make it a year difference). She pouts towards Dani.
Bo-ram, who is the eldest at 26 (I think) chastises Ji-yeon because while Ji-yeon cries at being a measly elder sister, Bo-ram is mother levels already!
Ji-yeon feels bad for the loli-mom so she gives her a hug
But wait, young Dani is not done! She brings out another awesome skill! She tells us how happy she is being in T-ara…In ENGLISH!
And not that broken Engrish that would put all AKB members to shame, nope!
Seriously, what are these T-ara girls made of if their youngest member is like this?!!!
I swear to God her accent totally floors mine!
I can’t frikkin wait for her real debut in T-ara!!
Shit is gonna be so awesome!
Pardon the lang but I am just so damn heated right now!
I haven’t even slept since yesterday and t’s already 7am on Christmas!
Wait, did I mention that Dani-chan wasn’t done yet!!!! I did, didn’t I? Well she isn’t done yet again!
She is still taking all the feels from me people! Eun-jung asks her to give something to the Japanese audience (a taste of her gifts like A-reum)!
Dani agrees. Out she pulls her Galaxy S II (probably) and hands it to the Staff.
Music starts playing. It’s Puff Daddy’s I’ll be Missing You!
That’s right, Dani frakkin raps to the song and I am like…mother of god~
Somebody please kill me!! No wait, after I watch this, okay?!
I mean there she was standing there all cute with her teddy rabbit and everything! And yet she was rapping like here was no tomorrow!
Talk about personality clashes! If I haf any doubts about her in T-ara, actually if anyone had doubts about her (and there are a lot of those I find) watching this would totally set me straight! But I had none to begin with so I was more moved by her and am supporting her more!
Interesting still were the way she kept glancing towards Ji-yeon. Really, her little crush is so damn obvious!
Not to say that Hwa-young did not do anything here though. Nope, when towards the end Day by Day came on, she appeared in all her broken leg glory sitting there on a chair like the boss she is and kick started things off with her seal o win rapping that begins off Day by Day!
Not just herself too for A-reum appeared as well and danced with the others! Only Dani was missing to make this a full-castle T-ara!
Broken leg? Bitch please, it’s only a scratch! That won’t stop Hwa-young from appearing on-stage!
That simple fact actually made this Day by Day performance all that more memorable and feels inducing!
Then at the end, T-ara gets an encore and what better way to end things than coming out in seifuku and performing Roly Poly!
Nothing that’s what.
Poor Ji-yeon was so touched by the love from the fans that she almost cried. Actually she cried just not trailing tears but her eyes were obviously wet!
Actually Eun-jung too was crying and Hyo-min was trying her hardest to hold them tears in.
Q-ri on the other hand seemed to be having the time of her life in the seifuku.
Even Bo-ram-neesama was on the verge of tears. Her smile sure wasn’t there anymore.
Yep, ma baby was totally crying! Damn, WTF was going on there? It seemed like they were moved by the fan’s posters but we never saw what was written, not that I could have understood it but still!
Seeing ma Ji-nah crying her eyes out and not understanding why was kind of driving me nuts!
I dared not believe I would be ending this concert in tears!
Seriously, who can not love these girls!
Look at them! They are commanding the love out of me to them. Please dear fans, please, continue loving and supporting T-ara!!
Bo-ram & So-yeon
Bo-ram & Ji-yeon
Q-ri & Eun-jung
Eun-jung and Hyo-min
Somehow it looks like A-reum and Ji-yeon are doing the Titanic thing there on the screen >.<
Okay, forget what I was saying about them being too cool to feel each other up on stage.
Forget it. They are still after all, my idols that I love and support.
Tears, tears every where!
The nearer I got to the end the more I though of how this was the concert to go to if one was given one chance to attend!
So much energy!
Too bad it had to come to an end!
But I am very glad I chose to watch this on Christmas. It gave me a very pure feeling of joy that makes me so happy that I watched it today!
I love T-ara even more now if possible!
I can’t wait for their next single which I hope will see the debut of Dani to full duty and complete the loyal family!
Long live T-ara.
All teh caps that are so many they can cure cancer!
Okay, I forgive thee, the rest (all 400 something of them) will be up on SkyDrive so you can grab the rar of them all if you want.
I scared you there for a bit, didn’t I ^^
