T-ARA ‘Sugar Free’ Biggest Club Hit Of September?

By Lily James | September 15, 2014 08:26 AM EDT


Girl group T-ARA has crossed over to China with the music video for their track "Sugar Free."

The clip has ranked No. 1 on China's popular music video site, YinYueTai, since making its debut on September 10, according to the Korean media outlet Osen Entertainment.

Aside from T-ARA, other K-pop artists, including TEEN TOP, 2PM, Super Junior and JYJ were seen taking on the ranks from No. 8 to 13 while Hyomin's "Nice Body" has remained at the top of the charts three months after its release.

T-ARA's "Sugar Free" music video was featured on Pop Dust soon after its release, highlighting the success of one of fall's biggest K-pop hits.

"Produced by K-pop hitmaker Shinsadong Tiger, "Sugar Free" sees T-ara going full-blown EDM for the first time ever. The results are explosive, spawning the kind of commercial club banger that could easily slot in between David Guetta, Martin Garrix, and Afrojack on any DJ's playlist - and with reports that "Sugar Free" is being recorded in English and remixed by major DJs as we speak, the idea of the song crossing over isn't as far fetched as you might think," wrote the publication.

The members of T-ARA have become K-pop sensations since making their debut with their studio album "Bo Beep Bo Beep" back in 2009. The girls have since churned out hits, including "Lovey Dovey" and "Roly-Poly."

The girls had recently gone through a difficult time in the K-pop world as allegations of internal bullying surfaced with the departures of a fellow idol member, according to The Korea Times. However, the idol group has now returned to K-pop star status with new hits and addictive music videos.

"Before, we took it for granted that we would top the chart, and be loved by fans. We now know that we were lucky to be given those opportunities, " said group member Eunjung.

Fellow member Soyeon added, "At that time, we were a group of young girls who took interviews or performances for granted, as part of our routine schedule. We might have become snobby, but now I know that each and every stage of our success was due to our fans."
