South Korean girl group T-ara has released four studio albums (one of which was re-released under a different title), nine extended plays (four of which were re-released under different titles), two compilation albums, two remix albums, thirty-six singles (including five collaboration singles), and six promotional singles. T-ara's debut studio album Absolute First Album was released in 2009. It peaked at number two on the Gaon Album Chart and produced two Korean top ten singles, "Bo Peep Bo Peep" and "Like the First Time". The 2010 reissue of the album titled Breaking Heart charted at number two on the Gaon Album Chart and sold over 40,695 physical units in South Korea. It spawned the Gaon Digital Chart number one single "You Drive Me Crazy" (너 때문에 미쳐), which sold over three million digital copies and became the fifth best-selling single of 2010 in South Korea.[1]

T-ara's first extended play (EP) Temptastic was released in December 2010. The EP spawned two Gaon top five singles, "What's Wrong" (왜 이러니) and "Yayaya". The group's 2011 EP John Travolta Wannabe (존 트라볼타 워너비) peaked at number three on the Gaon Album Chart and produced the single "Roly-Poly", which charted atop the Korea K-Pop Hot 100 chart and became the highest-selling digital single of 2011 in South Korea, with over four million digital downloads.[2][3] The group consolidated their reputation in the South Korean music industry in 2011 and 2012 with the follow-up number-one singles "Cry Cry", "We Were In Love" (우리 사랑했잖아), and "Lovey-Dovey", the last of which was the second highest-selling digital single of 2012 in South Korea with over 3.7 million digital units sold.[4]

The group's first Japanese language album Jewelry Box was released in 2012. The album peaked at number two on the Oricon chart and was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ).[5] Its lead single, the Japanese version of their 2009 Korean single "Bo Peep Bo Peep", peaked atop the Oricon chart and the Japan Hot 100 and was certified Gold by the RIAJ for physical and digital sales exceeding 100,000 units.[6] A month later, the group returned to the South Korean music scene with Day by Day, followed by a reissue titled Mirage. The singles "Day by Day" and "Sexy Love" both reached the top ten of the Gaon Digital Chart and ranked among the top 100 best-selling singles in South Korea of 2012.[4] In August 2013, the group released their second Japanese studio album Treasure Box, which peaked at number four on the Oricon chart and spawned two Oricon top five singles: "Sexy Love" and "Bunny Style!" (バニスタ).

T-ara's fifth Korean EP Again was released in October 2013, peaking at number two on the Gaon Album Chart and producing the lead single "Number Nine" (넘버나인), which charted at numbers five and four on the Gaon Digital Chart and Korea K-Pop Hot 100, respectively. The group has released two further EPs, And & End (2014), and So Good (2015), both of which managed to reach the top ten of the Gaon Album Chart. The former included the single "Sugar Free", which became the group's highest-charting song on the Billboard World Digital Songs, peaking at number four.
