AceShowbiz - K-Pop girl group %cT-ara% has once again been hit by disbandment rumors. Multiple news reports claimed that the girl group has decided to part ways even though they have decided to fight against MBK Entertainment for the rights of their group name following their departure from the label. The decision was made because their individual opinions' were too different.

Reps for T-ara have yet to respond to the disbandment rumors.

Member %cHyomin% also posted on Instagram a message reassuring fans that the girl group would not disband even after leaving the label together. "Although I can't tell you anything concrete yet, our members will be able to be together, wherever or whenever," so she wrote. "We decided to carefully consider how we can prepare many opportunities for us to be able to be together with fans in the future."

새해를 맞아 오랜만에 인사드려요. 잘지내고 계시죠? 저희는 작년을 마지막으로 10년이라는 긴 시간 동안 함께 했던 회사와는 이별을 하게 됐어요. 그치만 걱정은 마세요. 아직 구체적으로는 말씀 드릴 순 없지만 멤버들은 앞으로도 어디있든 언제든 함께 할 수 있을 거에요. 멤버들 각자 오랜만에 자기시간을 갖고 여유도 부려보며, 어떻게 하면 앞으로 팬분들과 함께 할 수 있는 자리를 많이 마련 할 수 있을지 진중히 고민해 보기로 했어요. 물론 개인적으로도 팬 여러분 많이 그리고 자주 찾아 뵐 예정이에요. 누군가로부터 사랑 받는 것이 당연하다고만 생각했던 어렸던 그 때 부터, 사랑 받지 못 할 것을 알면서도 다시 시작 하는 지금까지 많은 가르침을 준 그동안의 시간에 다시 한 번 감사하게 되네요. 또 다른 시작에 설레기도 하지만 10년이란 긴 세월동안 동고동락했던 회사와의 이별에 마치 오랜시간 만난 연인과 헤어진 후 바로 또 다른 사랑을 시작 하기엔 겁이 나듯 조심스러운 부분이 있는것은 사실이에요. 그리고 팬 분들께는 비록 끝은 아니지만 일단 10년이란 시간 아낌없이 응원 해 주신 것에 진심으로 감사하단 말 꼭 드리고 싶었어요. 그리고 모두 고생하셨습니다! 조만간 좋은 소식으로 찾아 올테니 팬 여러분들 너무 염려말고 기다려주세요. 그럼 2018년엔 하시고자 하는 일 모두 이루시고 새해 복 많이 많이 받으세요!

Following the girls' departure, MBK Entertainment applied to trademark the name "T-ara" in order to prevent the girls from maintaining their group name after leaving. In response, %cJiyeon% and the other girls filed documents with grounds to refuse the trademark application. The move was made after the group's lawyer revealed that the label's initial application could be rejected under the Trademark Act.

T-ara debuted in July 2009 with "Lies" and "Wanna Play?". Their debut performances received negative responses from many people, who stated that it was lipsynched and commented that it seemed like an "elementary school" performance. They rose to stardom after their single "Bo Peep Bo Peep" became a big hit, leading to them being presented with Rookie of the Year Award at the 24th Golden Disc Awards along with %c4minute%.
