Korean pop groups T-ara and Choshinsung have successfully wrapped up their joint concert in Japan, according to a press release by their agency Core Contents Media on Friday.

The concert, held June 3 at Yokohama Britz Hall, was sponsored by local restaurant chain Skylark as part of promoting their new Korean menu. The two groups have been advertising the food chain since last March.

T-ara and Choshinsung performed a total of nine songs at the concert, in front of some 1,000 fans who came to see the show.

However, T-ara member Ham Eun-jung was unable to take part in the concert due to her shooting schedule for SBS TV series “Coffee House.”

T-ara, who debuted in July 2009 with the single “Lie” and “Wanna Play,” is composed of Eunjung, Hyomin, Jiyeon, Boram, Soyeon and Qri.

They released their first studio album “Absolute First Album” in December 2009, which produced two hit singles “BoPeepBoPeep” and “I Go Crazy Because Of You.”

Choshinsung is also a six-member group consisting of members Jung Yunhak, Kim Sungje, Yoon Sungmo, Kim Kwangsu, Song Jihyuk and Park Geonil.

After making their debut in Korea in October 2007 with the album “The Beautiful Stardust,” they went on to release a mini-album in Korea plus two studio albums and seven singles in Japan. Their fourth single in Japan, titled “Last Kiss,” peaked at No. 4 on the Oricon music chart.

Both groups gained popularity as their collaboration projects “TTL (Time to Love)” and “TTL Listen 2” became smash hits, dominating various K-pop music charts last year.
