In June 2009, Core Contents Media announced that Ji-ae and Ji-won left due to differences in music style. Boram, Soyeon, and Qri were added. The group's agency began to release promotional pictures in July 2009 in accordance with the new members. Afterward, T-ara released their debut single "Geojitmal" (Korean: "거짓말" lit. "Lie").

2009: Debut

T-ara made its debut on MBC's Radio Star talk show on July 29, 2009. The music video was released that day. Their first performance was on Mnet's M! Countdown show, where they performed "Geojitmal" and "Wanna Play". Their debut was looked upon negatively by netizens, who noted that it was lipsynched and commented that it seemed like an elementary school performance. The group announced afterward that future performances would be live.

A few members of T-ara (Eunjung, Soyeon, Hyomin and Park Ji-Yeon) were in a project group with Supernova, a six member male group for the digital single, TTL (Time to Love). On December 1, 2009, T-ara released their first full-length album, named Absolute First Album. This album had two singles, "Cheoeum Cheoreom" and "Bo Peep Bo Peep", both with music videos.
