[Original Title: Han Seungyeon's father blames leader Park Gyuri for KARA-DSP Media dispute] Recently, Han Seungyeon's father was interviewed on a Japanese program, and he firmly singled out KARA's leader, Park Gyuri, as the underlying cause between KARA's dispute with DSP Media. On this week's broadcast of Fuji TV's "Super News", the reporter asked Han Seung Yeon's father, Han Jong Chil, about who he thought was mainly responsible for KARA's dispute. He replied, "I think the leader is acting with no responsibilities. This happened because of bad communication." He continued, "As KARA kept growing, the agency failed to be a good back support for them. The kids' futures have become unstable." Han Jong Chil stated that the "members never had conflicts and disputes between each other", but this is the first time someone has pointed their fingers at a particular member. Netizens commented, "Why is he doing interviews like this in Japan?", and "You can't put all the blame onto the leader." --- [UPDATE] --- We know there's been a lot of confusion floating around, simply because the Korean media is postulating that Han Seungyeon's father said it was Gyuri who was the underlying cause of the KARA-DSP Media conflict. After reviewing the video clip and conferring with our Japanese colleagues, it's come to our understanding that the only time Gyuri's name was brought up was in the Japanese subtitles; Han Seungyeon's father did not specifically name Gyuri as the problem, he just mentioned 'leader'. Some viewers took this to mean the literal leader of KARA, which would be Park Gyuri, but others are starting to believe that he's referring to the acting CEO of DSP Media. At this point, we're not sure if the Japanese program had misconstrued the interview, or if Han Seungyeon's father meant to play a game of inferences. We'll be keeping a close eye on the situation to see if Han Seungyeon's father will make an official statement. Again, for the sake of clarity, we've decided to post this update to explain clearly that while the Korean media is running with the explanation that Gyuri is the cause, we're saying to please keep an open mind until either an official statement is made, or facts are provided.
