Girl Group Wars: SNSD vs T-ARA

KpopEncarta:           Yeah…snsd 1-8 is ridiculous.  T-ara’s the only group that even compares.  You know…that would be a fun debate.

Thekoreanjjang:     What?

KpopEncarta:           T-ara vs snsd in head to head matchups

Thekoreanjjang:     Don’t tempt me.  I could prob write a research report on that.

KpopEncarta:           That makes 2 of us.

Thekoreanjjang:     Kind of hard to be unbiased though.  We would need the public in on a double blind study.  Lest some unruly sones or queens ruin the study… myself included though I refuse to be labeled a queen jeez.

KpopEncarta:           loool.  It would be a truly epic debate with us though lol

Thekoreanjjang:     Damn right. I already know it would be a heated battle, though imo t-ara would edge out snsd in a close contest.

KpopEncarta:           I’m inclined to agree.

Thekoreanjjang:     I could see our arguments progressing as a logical battle, though it would get heated with some of the personal matchups where we might disagree  to the point of exasperation.

KpopEncarta:           Honestly, i think the only 2 points where we’d get really heated would be Sooyoung and Boram.  Everyone else we generally agree on to a certain extent, but then again it’s hard to say without knowing the matchups lol.

Thekoreanjjang:     lol maybe we should set up some hypothetical match-ups.  First off would be Eunjung vs Taeyeon, labeled the leaders.

KpopEncarta:           Agreed.

Thekoreanjjang:     2. Sica vs Soyeon, labeled Ice Queens.  Sorry to infringe, but Soyeon IS the diva queen in T-ara after all.

KpopEncarta:           No arguments here.  Remember the wallpaper I linked you?  Mirror Prince Vs Ice Queen.

Thekoreanjjang:     3. Jiyeon vs Yoona, labeled the visuals.  4. Hyomin vs Sunny.  Lol, what’s their label?

KpopEncarta:           Variety/vocals

Thekoreanjjang:     I like it. 5. hwayoung vs Seohyun labeled the maknaes.  6. Fany vs Qri.  I think Fany vs. Qri sounds good haha.

KpopEncarta:           Eh…I think Yuri vs Qri is better

Thekoreanjjang:     What to do with Fany then?  Toss her to the sidelines?

KpopEncarta:           Sidelines.

Thekoreanjjang:     Super subs. Yuri vs Qri it is then.

KpopEncarta:           Unless you wanna group her with Boram. Hmm what to label this matchup.

Thekoreanjjang:     No way Sooyoung vs Boram labeled the food monsters is so much better

KpopEncarta:           LOL done.

Thekoreanjjang:     Hmm any ideas for Yuri vs. Qri?

KpopEncarta:           First thing that came to mind was backups lol.

KpopEncarta:           Cuz they’re not lead anything…

Thekoreanjjang:     How about label intangibles. We can’t really pinpoint what they are but their definitely there.

KpopEncarta:           Nice way of putting it I suppose.

Thekoreanjjang:     Fany and Hyoyeon can chill as subs unless you want to match them with the two former t-ara members who left.  NAW they didn’t stay to debut with t-ara.  They ran away from their duties and now reap what they’ve sown…which is anonymity haha.

KpopEncarta:           There’s no point.

Thekoreanjjang:     Very true…onto the first match-up!

    Hi there, I chanced upon your link on twitter and just want to say that I truly enjoyed this ‘debate’. I am pretty new to the amazing kpop world and was just getting to know both groups better (mainly because of Eunjung.. : p). The points you guys have raised are interesting, rational and humorous. I really like how these discussions are raised to the point with no uncomfortable words or unreasonable bashing, accompanied with really nice photos and supporting videos.. Great job! I will definitely be back to visit often. 🙂

    Im a big fan of After School. But i must admit (no biased and as a neutral statement) from my eyes and my boyfriends. T-ara seems to be prettier, more talented, and have better songs then SNSD. But SNSD is from SM Ent so i get they are more exposed with media and advertisements. Still, i think T-ara is obviously more better group. I actually dont get why SNSD is the #1 girl group. Though, i do find “gee gee” a catchy song. Lovey Dovey and Roly Poly are also catchy. HEy CoreMedia… your’e not doing much by adding more members. Throw Jiyeon and Hyomin and Eunjung in more movies and commercials please! SM Ent is like the Apple and Google media corps! SM runs so much media and advertisements. Why else do u think SNSD is popular? Just make sure T-ara continues to bring great music. But honestly… i dont even think it’s about the music anymore (T-ara’s music is clearly much better then SNSDs)

    • kpopencarta April 6, 2012 at 5:33 pm

      Yeah I agree that adding members are extremely unnecessary, especially considering how underused Qri and Boram are. Getting Soyeon some vocal help would be nice though as she seems to sing more than any other main vocal outside of SISTAR’s Hyorin. Her/Hyomin/Eunjung prob take 90% of the lines in every song.

      • Toni August 1, 2012 at 12:36 am

        Adding new members was pretty useless.i don’t dislike Hwayoung, but i don’t like her either,and i say her addition was stupid.sorry hwayoung fans.what did she give to the group that the others haven’t done already?Vocals?she has zero vocals.Rapping? Hyo and Eunjung took care of that when T-ara first started & they both have better skills than Hwayoung. Dance? Eunjung and Jiyeon take care of that.

      It’s the internet age my friend.. PSY did not need his company to do marketing for Gangnam Style.. Seriously, if T-ara is good, they will catch on.. Get them over to SM Entertainment and I can bet they’ll still not overtake SNSD..
      Obviously different singers/groups caters to different tastes of listeners.. Your preference of T-ara’s songs and looks does not represent the mass population of k-pop followers..
      End of the day, SNSD will still be the no. 1 Korean girl group, until they finally disband..

    Just straight on I love both groups I don’t think we should compare them anymore images kpop without them (snsd and t-ara)

  14. Anonymous June 21, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    T-ara is an amazing girl group yeah snsd are the best in kpop, but in my opinion t-ara are the best. First of all both groups are over worked but face it T-ara is even more overworked. They only get 2 or 1 hour of sleep. Seriously T-ara has gone up to one of the most popular kpop groups. Yeah T-ara has gone threw some ups and downs but they would always face them with might. T-ara’s biggest scandal the Hwayoung bullying was true but yet some evidence was misunderstud. I’m am. A proud QUEEN and I always will be. T-ara has been brave enough to still come out after a whole controversy as a very good sub-unit T-ara N4 and they explained misunderstanding evidence and how they could have mislead people, they did however admitted the did bullied Hwayoung and made a reflection about it. ( they did it on Beatles code) now they also came out with another sub-unit QBS ( boram, qri, and SOYEON) and unlike T-ara N4 they are the cute mature side of T-ara.

    I am a QUEEN and a admit I was very disappointed about the whole scandal, but then I thought how would I feel if I was being hated for a thing that a lot of people do even without really noticing it. And worse of all being insulted.

    Yes even thought you are a SONE you can still support another group. Hey I support SNSD, KARA,4MINUTE,F(x),BIG BANG,SHINEE,SUJU,U-KISS,NU’EST,SPPED and many more.

    I think every kpop group have their own unique members even thought they might have twins or siblings in other groups they are still unique.

    So in finishing this I support all kpop groups but I support t-ara and why in short because they are strong and brave and beautiful girls.

    Thank You

    t-ara smash all the k-pop, actually I’m not into k-pop but when it come to comparison between t-ara and GG, T-ara is the winner. I find no any good song in GG but T-ara has got some sweet song.
    Hats off to T-ara
