I suppose the Queen’s way back during the days of 6-ara would have felt the same - everything’s going to change, T-ara’s going to be different now.
Honestly, I’m not sure what to feel.
7-ara was the T-ara I fell in love with (and am still in love with, obviously), and inevitably, things are going to be different. So different, with the change in team dynamics, a change in roles, line distribution, general appearance, everything-
Will the new T-ara be the same group I came to adore?
No, no, that was just rhetoric. A main argument I had against the additions back when they were first announced was the fact that T-ara is far more than just another brand name. I love T-ara for the girls that it consists, not merely for the name these girls uphold.
Essentially, as long as the original six are in there, they will always be T-ara to me.
What I’m mourning, I think, is the alteration of a great, solid team; a specific image I have of them, that team dynamic, that bond, those roles I outlined in that post of mine. The new T-ara will be different - not necessarily bad, just different.
(Perhaps I feel a bit reluctant, too, because I’m not sure how the girls feel about all this.)
And despite all this negativity, despite the hesitation, I’m excited to see the girls again. I’m excited to see Areum, to see Dani, learn more about them, learn to love them as I do the girls.
I suppose I’m ready to move on, to embrace the new T-ara. I’m all set to rewrite that post of mine, to edit according to the new dynamics, and add in my thoughts on Areum and Dani whenever I learn more about them.
I still feel a bit morose when I think about it, but I guess I can live with that.
Here’s to 7-ara. It’s been a good one, and we’ll always remember you.
