T-ara ( /tiˈɑːrə/; Korean: 티아라, Japanese: ティアラ; often stylized as T-ARA or T♔ARA ) is a South Korean girl group that debuted in 2009 under Core Contents Media. Before their debut, there was a high level of interest in the group as they were called the "Super Rookies" and had been training for three years prior.

Originally a five-member group composed of Jiae, Jiwon, Eunjung, Hyomin, and Jiyeon, they released their first song "Good Person" ( 좋은 사람, Joheun Saram ) for the soundtrack of the Korean drama Cinderella Man in April 2009. After Jiae and Jiwon withdrew from the group two months later, T-ara debuted as a six-member group with the addition of Boram, Soyeon, and Qri in July 2009.

The group has added three members to their lineup since debut: Hwayoung in July 2010, Areum in June 2012, and Dani, who was announced to be joining the group after she finishes training. Hwayoung later departed the group in July 2012. Areum left in July 2013, only one year after joining. T-ara uses a rotating leader system in which a different member of the group is elected as leader each year, in order to give both the group and the individual members the opportunity to grow in a new direction. Their current leader under this system is Qri.

Boram - Sub-Vocalist
Qri - Sub-Vocalist, Sub-Rapper
So Yeon - Main Vocalist, Lead Dancer
Eun Jung - Vocalist, Main Rapper
