T-ara's plans to come back as a full group falls through, will be coming back as 4

It looks like T-ara will not be having the happy ending that fans had been hoping for.

The girls had pushed back their comeback from May to June, and with Soyeon and Boram's contracts ending on May 15th, negotiations to promote as a full group ultimately fell through. The pair will not be in T-ara's final album.
