If previously K-pop groups were formed after they participated in an idol survival show or something, it was different for Tahiti which was already present on television during its pre-debut era with a sitcom reality program titled Ta-Dah! It’s Tahiti with the original members EJ, Keezy, Yeeun, Jungbin, Jisoo, and Minjae.

The show began its first broadcast on April 14, 2012. Not only broadcasted in South Korea but several countries such as China, Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Singapore also broadcasted this program to introduce Tahiti during its pre-debut era. But, after “W-Bye! It’s Tahiti” ended, Ari and Hanhee left the group and were replaced by Ye-eun and Keezy.

TAHITI’s Debut Era

Tahiti’s first debut album was Tonight, and the hot rookie group splendidly decorated the second half of 2012. Tahiti is named after an island called Venus Island, a paradise in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean, and it was named to show the strong and diverse colors of Tahiti based on dance and play, the soul of the indigenous people of Tahiti!

The new girl group Tahiti that debuted in 2012 was gathering interest even before its debut and had been attracting attention from many fans who were waiting for its debut for a long time. Tahiti, emerging as a hot girl group, presented a more sophisticated music style with electronic house dance that differentiated it from existing girl groups.

“Tonight” is an exciting club dance song that properly mixes house beats and electric sounds. The song was completed after a year of song work to break away from the old hook song pattern and create the best match for Tahiti.

It is a song that expresses the lyrics of a woman who wants to be born as a new single by complaining about her boyfriend who makes mistakes every time and does not treat her well through an exciting and cheerful melody. With a unique method of sound design that took more than two weeks to take, it was implemented in a manual way that maximized the voices of each member.

The title song “Tonight” was released as a single album and is a song that composer RYAN JHUN (formerly Ryan), who worked on songs for Hyori Lee, TVXQ, SHINee, Girls Day, Supernova, and U-Kiss, worked hard on for one year. Breaking away from the existing noisy and complicated electronics, he incorporated various elements of house music by adding a side chain and groove.

The melody’s tone was created by hand to bring out the individuality of each member’s voice with sound design techniques, and the work was carried out between Korea and the United States. “Tonight” shows off the unique color of Tahiti with a dynamic, lively, and cool sound that breaks away from the hook song.

Tahiti’s “Tonight” music video is a variety itself! Tahiti’s members, who were working at a mannequin factory, escape through the wall to avoid the evil boss! It tells the story of six robbers riding in a convertible car and going to rob a clothing store.

Through the music of Tahiti, these transformations offer a lot of attraction by constructing four sets to express colorful scenes with the concept of escaping from our tiring daily life and enjoying life. It contains the will to become a girl group with strong individuality that is not standardized like the mannequins that come out of the mannequin factory.

Another member, Jungbin, also didn’t participate in this comeback, and fans found that their Twitter account was inactive.

While uploading a photo of TAHITI’s last performance at a concert, she wrote, “Hello everyone. Yesterday was TAHITI’s 6th birthday, and I’m sorry to have to bring this up the day after.

All the members and the agency had a long discussion, and we finally decided to disband. Not a single album has been released for the past 2 years, and our performances are only in Japan and some countries. I’m sorry that we couldn’t go any further, and I’m sorry that we couldn’t promise to come back.

There was a lot of pain, tears, and disappointment, but for me, the 4 years as a member of TAHITI are good memories because you guys have always been there to support me. I will never forget the support, love, and hope you gave me.

I will continue to be a singer for as long as I can, as Jerry or Sohyeon. For now, I can’t promise you anything, but I hope you can look forward to me standing on stage again. I can’t even describe how much I love my fans. I love you guys so much, and I’m really sorry,” she wrote.
