So here's the news (that you most probably have heard): Core Content Media's CEO Kim Kwang Soo announced that T-ara will undergo a huge change of members, possibly switching out some and adding some, turning T-ara into a 8 or 9-membered group.
Enjoy the old T-ara pictures below:
Possible Outcome Number 1: [Adding Members]
There are some idle artists within CCM that may be added to T-ara.
For example, Hong Jin Young:
Possible Outcome Number 2: [Sub Grouping]
There's a Chinese saying that goes something like, "one mountain cannot has two tigers". Similarly, T-ara has too many good singers, and sub grouping will definitely allow members other than So Yeon to get more lines and members other than Eun Jung and Ji Yeon to get more exposure and camera time.
But how will the sub grouping be? Personally, I would love to see a unnie line and a dongseng line, that will be quite interesting. The unnie line can try trot songs, while dongseng line can try songs with more lively dance moves.
Possible Outcome Number 3: [Divide and Conquer]
With their promotions spanning Japan and Korea, separating the group into one for each country seems possible too.
Worst Possible Outcome: [Removal of Member(s)]
If this happens, I would like to think it is not because of the idol's complacency that Kim Kwang Soo mentioned but that the member herself has requested to leave T-ara, possibly because of the busy schedule.
