Rainbow and T-ara to debut in Japan

I think both of these groups could do fairly well in Japan. As well as Kara and SNSD? Rainbow and T-ara probably won't sell even half of what Kara and SNSD do, but it'll still be way better than what they sell in Korea.

Rainbow

I think they can do fairly well in Japan. They have a similar image to Kara but their songs have have a different sound than Kara's. To be honest, I don't really follow Rainbow. After having the worst song of 2009 (Gossip Girl, sorry to bring it back up) they have come out with better songs in 2010 and 2011, with each song being better than the last.

Though, I don't really understand Rainbow fans saying that Rainbow is much better looking than Kara. Sure there's Jaekyung, but that's really it.

T-ara

T-ara was at their peak with 6 members with fanboys fapping to Bo Peep Bo Peep and I Go Crazy Because of You. They add Hwayoung and promote Yayaya over Why Are You Being Like This and things started going downhill from there. If they promote the right songs T-ara should do fairly well in Japan.

Please, don't give Hwayoung any lines if they debut with Bo Peep Bo Peep. She already ruins I Go Crazy Because of You.

And for both groups: please no rapping. Go listen to 2PM's Japanese songs and you'll hear how awful idols sound rapping in Japanese.

  1. terrible japanese pronunciations with rapping from an idol in an unfamiliar language is bound to be horrendously painful to your hearing.

  2. They should both stay in Korea for a little longer. I don't know which is worse, attempting to rap in Japanese or making up for the lack of Japanese skill with English lyrics.

  3. If they make Eunjung dress up as Darth Vader like they did in IGCBOY I will assassinate their stylists.

  4. The only people I wanna hear rapping in Japanese are real Japanese rappers. The few Japanese idols that do rap are fucking awful. So I'd assume that Korean idols rapping in Japanese would be really fucking awful.

    Rainbow probably could use a little more seasoning Korea and T-ara probably should have a good Korean comeback first. T-ara already won #1s with two songs and won on Mnet Countdown with their most recent title tracks. Rainbow has the image for Japan so there's no reason for them to continue being a 3rd tier group in Korea when they could be a 2nd tier group in Japan.

    @Suckmydee I agree. The stupid shoulder pad things she had was better than her fucking cloak.

  5. I still don't get why CCM added Hwayoung into T-ara when they doing really well with 6 members..its not like she can rap better than Hyomin and Eunjung, her english pronounciation...(OMG...i'm speechless)..until now i still don't get the 'welcome to wonderland' line...her dancing skill are terrible and awkward, for face??? No, her face really big and she look like a giant compare to other members..
    i really hate when she took other member line in 6t-ara songs like Soyeon's line in IGCBOY, Hyomin's line in BPBP ang LTFT...the worst thing is she just lip-sync all those line because i still can hear clearly soyeon and hyomin voice during performance..so what the point to add her into the group?She just ruin the t-ara visual image and of course t-ara get another useless members..

  6. AKFG: "Rainbow has the image for Japan so there's no reason for them to continue being a 3rd tier group in Korea when they could be a 2nd tier group in Japan."

    ^ Well said.

  7. ^To be honest, she has better stage presence than some of the memebers in T-ara, and yeah her rapping is not better than Hyomin or Eunjung, but it is still good. I don't see why they added her either, but she doesn't really do anything bad to the group besides bring down their average looks.

    I think she would have been better in Co-ed. I don't really feel what other T-ara fans feel about Hwayoung though, since she got me to start listening to the group when they added her in.

  8. Her rapping is cringe worthy. She has the same problem a lot of idol rappers: over pronouncing words/syllables and ruining what flow she has in songs. Her lives are fucking terrible since she lip syncs. There was also a huge difference in audio levels when Eunjung and Hwayoung rapped on the music shows. Eunjung couldn't have had a better mic EVERY SINGLE TIME.

    Yeah, and her taking parts from 6-ara members pisses me off. She shouldn't get any parts from the original songs.

    Yeah, she should have been added to Co-Ed because both the twins fucking suck.

  9. LLOLOLOLOL couldn't of said it better myself.

    But..

    Hwayoung > Hyoyoung

    They both suck though tbh.

  10. AS far looks go:
    JaeKyung
    Nicole
    Hara
    the rest of Rainbow

    Jiyoung

  11. Guyi could be over some rainbow members if she has on the right makeup and if she is blonde. And I would put seungyeon over a couple rainbow members too.... well I can't really tell the rest of rainbow apart lol. But I agree with the rest. JaeKyung is at the top. Jiyoung is at the bottom....I keep forgetting she is even in KARA.

  12. T-ara and Rainbow aren't 3rd tier girl group!

    ReplyDelete
  13. T-ara is 2nd tier in Korea and Rainbow is third tier in Korea. Only 4 tier 1 groups in Kpop are SNSD, 2NE1, Kara, and (old) Wonder Girls.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Shit, I'd take Jiyoung over most of the Rainbow members. She's #3 for me in Kara. (If you really wanna know my top 5 in Kara in order: Nicole, Seungyeon, Jiyoung, Hara, Gyuri.)

    ReplyDelete
  15. T-ara will forever be a failure under CCM. Qri is just THERE, Boram is fucking invinsible. Sometimes I wonder if she's a fucking ninja?? Jiyeon is there because she's a stripper. The only functioning members are Eunjung, Hyomin and Soyeon. It'd be better to make a 3 member sub-unit for T-ara which consists of Soyeon, Hyomin and Eunjung. Did I forget someone? Nah I don't think so.

    And as for Rainbow... They should make a lesbian tape of Woori with Hara and for sure they will bloom in Japan.

    ReplyDelete
  16. OMG i was just about to make the same comment about the sub-unit!!

    and i really don't mind hwayoung..only because of boram, qri, and jiyeon are worse.

    ReplyDelete
  17. ^^^^^^^

    THANK YOU!!!!!

    THEY ARE MUCH WORSE!

    ReplyDelete
  18. LOL..Boram = ninja..For me, she just useless. Make her a leader doesn't mean anything when its clearly, Soyeon take over the position every time and Boram continue to shy all the time..if she just too shy, why don't she just stay at home?? No need to be an idol and i don't know why Boram's fans keep whining about how she don't get enough attention. She deserve that because she don't even try to make herself visible.She just so lucky to be in t-ara when there is a members like Eunjung, Hyomin and Soyeon in the group that can keep drag along a burden/useless members with them..

    ReplyDelete
  19. What they should do is ditch Qri, Boram, Jiyeon and Hwayoung and add back Jiwon and Jiae and T-ara would be awesome. I know Jiwon isn't the best looking girl, but she has more talent than Qri, Boram, Jiyeon and Hwayoung combined.

    ReplyDelete
  20. LOL yayaya was such a fail, especially the fact that jiyeon says "T-AWA" at the beginning. XDDDD

    ReplyDelete
  21. I would keep Jiyeon because shes popular but after the strip video i think she lost some of her popularity....has she been in any drama roles since?

    ReplyDelete
  22. She just had a small cameo in Miss Ripley. She didn't really do much. Spoke stilted Japanese, that's about it. Played a "lesbian" by giving another girl a peck on the cheek. Eunjung is now T-ara's face so Jiyeon is dispensable.

    ReplyDelete
  23. ^
    If I'm not mistaken jf2 is in between when the scandal rises.
    And most recently cameo in ripley ?
    But i think she still strong in variety shows and cf area

    ReplyDelete
  24. I used to like boram, and then I realize how useless she is.
    At least qri and jiyeon is a worthy fap material for the fanboys unlike her

    ReplyDelete
  25. haha i'm a fan of rainbow! yeah, i hope they get more recognition in japan cuz they don't get shit in korea. and i also think they're prettier than kara. woori, jaekyung, hyunyoung (my "bagel" girl lol). the ugliest is probably yoonhye but she's no hyoyeon!

    as for t-ara, i don't follow them much so i don't care much. it's like all they do is movies/dramas now adays. shit, there's members i STILL don't know!

    ReplyDelete
  26. woori's a big asset to Rainbow, so there probably will be some japanese rapping there X__x
    they haven't really done a cute song yet, though. hopefully japan won't destroy their fierce track record so far

    ReplyDelete
  27. rainbow's woori is uber hot. just pointing that out

    anti kpop fangirl beware... I used to think nicole was the bee's knees until I saw some photos of her without makeup. talk about dreams crushed

    ReplyDelete
  28. Jfc I keep confusing Hyoyoung with Hyoyeon.

    ReplyDelete
  29. These two girl groups are like only 2-3 years old? Well good luck to them..they are gonna need it LOL

    ReplyDelete
  30. @Anti Kpop-Fangirl - I want the old members back as well. Why did they leave this group?

    Anyways the only good addition/replacement was SoYeon. The other two..I mean three are not that good. The twin girl just got in T-ara because the manager felt that they would look too adorable together in Co-Ed.

    I have no idea how T-ARA will do in Japan but I know that Rainbow's already prepared a long time ago.

  34. This comment section is over my head. I've listened to T-ara but I don't know who is who. Same story with Rainbow.

    ReplyDelete
  35. "And for both groups: please no rapping."

    I agree 99% fully. Exception = BEG's Miryo.
    They could do what BigBang did and try it in English.

    ReplyDelete
  36. BB's English rapping is even more lulworthy.

    ReplyDelete
  37. T-ara is special... woops sry i m fanboy

    ReplyDelete
  38. CCM should send some fuckhead that actually UNDERSTANDS English over to this page.

    ReplyDelete
  39. @Anti Kpop-Fangirl - If I had my way T-ara will also only consist Eunjung, Soyeon, Hyomin, Jiae & Jiwon. For fuck's sake, we never event got to hear Jiae and Jiwon sing live before they 'left' the group. But I'm sure if they did stick around, they'll kick more ass then some said individuals.

    I feel bad for Jiwon. She was also supposed to be in that group with G.na & Secret's Hyosung b4 T-ara. So in actuality she lost out 2 chances to debut. X_X

    As for Rainbow, I only know Woori & Jaekyung. lol.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Qri & Jiyoung are way cute imo.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I heard they added Hwayoung just to replace Eunjung and Jiyeon who were absent so often for live performances. So she's basically a substitute. A really crappy one...

  42. T-ara outsold both snsd and kara within the first week
