Day by Day is the fourth mini album (though titled the sixth mini album) by South Korean girl group T-ara, which was released on July 3, 2012, by Core Contents Media.[1] The album marked the first appearance of the group's eighth member, Areum and the last appearance of the group's member Hwayoung. A repackaged version of the album, titled Mirage (though titled the seventh mini album), was released on September 3, 2012.[2] "Sexy Love" was released as the title track from the Mirage repackage.[3]

Background[edit]

On June 13, 2012, Core Contents Media announced that the group would be releasing a new EP entitled "Day By Day" on July 3.[4] The mini-album was preceded by the release of the title track as its promotional single, along with a science-fiction themed music video that showcased both "Day By Day" and another track from the mini-album, titled "Don't Leave." Upon the song's release it quickly rose to number one on the Instiz charts, receiving an unofficial "all-kill" in the process.[5] The Day By Day mini-album marked the debut of T-ara's eighth member, Areum, while the music video featured T-ara's sub-unit member Dani as an actress alongside current members Jiyeon and Hyomin. The second music video for "Sexy Love" featured member Eunjung and Soyeon.
