T-ara is a 7 member South Korean girl group, formed and managed by Core Contents Media. The group's name is a play on the English word "tiara" which is a crown worn by queens and also to avoid confusion with another 3 member group named Tiara.
T-ara made their debut through the OST album "Jongeun Saram" (lit. translation "Good Person") for the TV drama series "Cinderella Man" (album released April 30, 2009). The group originally consisted of 6 members, but in June, 2009, members Jiae and Jiwon quit the group citing musical differences. Soyeon, Boram and Qri were then added to the group. T-ara released the single Geojitmal Pt. 1 (lit. tranlsation "Lies Pt. 1") on July 27, 2009. T-ara performed with boy band Choshinsung (Supernova) and released the single "TTL" (Time To Love) on November 27, 2009. On December 1, 2009, T-ara released their first album "Absolute First Album." Single "Bo Peep Bo Peep" led to the group ranking first in music programs. Group member Boram became the new leader for the group (Eunjung was previously the group's leader). The group released their first mini album "Temptastic" in December, 2010. Prior to the release of the group's second mini album "John Travolta Wannabe," Hyomin took the place of leader of the group.
