T-ara – South Korean k-pop, dance-pop, nu-disco, and electropop band

T-ara appeared in 2009 with the support of the recording label Core Contents Media. The initial lineup featured five young women, Jiwon, Jiae, Eunjung, Hyomin, and Jiyeon. The name for the girl’s band was chosen to inspire the artists to be queen-like since a tiara is an important part of the queen’s attire. The artists debuted with their first single “Joheun Saram (Ver. 1)" in April 2009. It was used as a soundtrack for the South Korean TV series Cinderella Man.

Before the group achieved its first popularity, Jiae and Jiwon left due to internal disagreements. They were replaced with Boram and Qri.

In July 2009, the group performed live for the first time on the TV show Radio Star on MBC. They also appeared on another TV show M Countdown with new songs "Geojitmal" and "Norabollae?". In September, the girls recorded another single "TTL (Time to Love)". To create it, they worked with such artists as Kwangsu, Jihyuk, and Geonil from Supernova. The single sold almost two million copies. In October, the band presented a new single, "TTL Listen 2", which didn’t manage to become as successful as the previous one.
