[NEWS]T-ara's notice about Japanese activities

After breaking records and achieving #1 on the Oricon charts with their debut Japanese single, girl group T-ara's label has answered questions about their follow-up single.

T-ara's Japanese debut song, "Bo Peep Bo Peep" debuted at #1 on the Oricon weekly charts on it's first week of release. After charting in the top 10 for three consecutive weeks, on October 18th, T-ara have sold a total of 65,818 copies. They have the high possibility of being able to sell over 100,000 copies.

Japanese fans have asked "are there going to be no Japanese promotions for the song 'Roly-Poly' after it was revealed that the follow-up song would be 'yayaya' in Japanese and the Korean version of Roly-Poly being included in the single album as well.

It was said that 'Roly-Poly' would be the most suitable song for Japan with its uniform and outfit concept showing different performances, etc. and especially since it is another one of T-ara's hit songs that was composed by Shinsadong Tiger, the same composer for 'Bo Peep Bo Peep'.

T-ara's agency Core Contents Media recently said, "It isn't definite that we do not plan to have activities for 'Roly-Poly' in Japan, we only added in the Korean version as a b-side for now. We have still only in the early stages and have yet to pick out a song that will come after 'Yayaya'." 

On the reasoning that their label selected "yayaya" as a follow-up, they said, "T-ara's Japanese record label made a strategical decision, and was very analytical about choosing it."

When they release "yayaya", it'll be at the same time as Namie Amuro and KAT-TUN release new songs. "T-ara has their own style and colors," they said, not being worried about the overlapping releases and activities but noting that T-ara will do to the best of their ability to fulfill their promotion cycles.

Meanwhile, T-ara will prepare for busy schedules by releasing their new songs "Cry Cry" and "lovey-dovey" in Korea in early November, and follow with their Japanese single album on November 30th in Japan.
