T-ara's Japanese Showcase: Girl fans VS boy fans; Showcase to be broadcast in 3D

Girl group T-ara has now immersed themselves into Japan.

T-ara performed at the Tokyo AXHall on the 5th of July at 7:30PM where 1,500 fans were in attendance for T-ara's first Japanese stage performance.

That day, fans lined up for the showcase hours before it started. In Japan, there was a big difference in gender ratios in fans as compared to the one in Korea.

When you go to a Korean girl group concert, you'll see that there are a lot of male fans that end up lining up in front of reporters. However, in this showcase, T-ara's power was shown as there was more female fans than male fans.

One of the girl fans present were asked where they found T-ara and what T-ara's charm was and she said that "I found them through a YouTube video. They are able to deliver stylish, sexy, and cute performances and it's very cool. Compared to Japanese girl groups there's more professionalism".

A J-ROCK representative says "Japanses girl groups focus on visuals while Koreans focus on giving perfect performances. Therefore, Japanese girl fans wish to follow this kind of trend." (?).

They continued by, "In the case of the male Japanese fans, rather than accessing their hearts to a perfect star, they prefer to access to girl groups who are not as complete."

The showcase finished late at night and T-ara had to return back to their hotel, but some of the girls ran chasing and screaming them.

Japan's greatest satellite-broadcaster Scapa will broadcast T-ara's First Japanese Showcase in 3D and 2D on the 14th of August, whilst FUJI-TV "Next Channel" will display a close up view of the recording room at the showcase in the special program "T-ara to T-ara"on the 27th of August.

Meanwhile, T-ara released their new title track "Roly Poly" in Korea. They will release the Japanese version to "Bo Peep Bo Peep" in September of this year.
