With the Lunar New Year coming up this weekend, the members ofÂ T-araÂ sat down withÂ Star NewsÂ to discuss their holiday plans.
Dressed in colorfulÂ hanboks, the girls shared a sweet New Yearâ€™s greeting with their fans.Â â€œOur schedule for this Lunar New Year is jam-packed, and we are hard at work in our promotions, so please show us a lot of loveâ€¦ We hope you will eat delicious food with your family and friends, and spend a great time watching T-ara on TV during the Lunar New Year holiday.â€
Having worked tirelessly on music, drama, advertisements, and musicals for the last half of 2011, T-ara was asked if they would get a break this Lunar New Year. They responded, â€œThere is no break.â€
The girls revealed that after their debut, they havenâ€™t had many opportunities to spend time with their families during the holiday.
EunjungÂ reminisced,Â â€œI remember during the holiday break once, I was at the jjimjilbang (a sauna facility) with my family when I had to leave all of a sudden because I was informed I had something scheduledâ€¦â€
Brightening, she said, â€œThis holiday brings us to the year of the dragon,Â so it feels different. Everyone, have a Happy New Year, and to all those 88?ers born in the year of the dragon, keep your energy up.â€
HwayoungÂ also shared a family memory, saying,Â â€œAlthough I have a twin, Iâ€™m the younger one so we always received different amounts of New Year moneyâ€¦ After performing the traditional bow to the elders, I would sneak a side glance to count Hyoyoung unniâ€™s money, and then proceed to shoot her puppy eyes to convince her to split the money with me.â€
As the leader,Â SoyeonÂ shared her reflections about T-araâ€™s growth.Â â€œThis year, I have become the 4th leaderâ€¦ T-araâ€™s songs have received a lot of love, and since we are off to a new start with so much good news, Iâ€™m very happy.â€
