Core Contents Media's CEO Kim Kwang Soo has demanded that the media cease reporting unconfirmed news regarding T-ara.
On July 31st, he was interviewed by Star News where he revealed that he met with the parents of Hwayoung and Hyoyoung and asked reporters to only report the facts for their sake.
He expressed, "After checking with T-ara's backdancer team, I was able to confirm that the post claiming to be T-ara's backdancer was indeed false, as with the content. The reason I terminated Hwayoung's contract yesterday was because of her tendency to act out, such as refusing to perform on a live broadcast. The decision was made as a reflection of the opinions of T-ara's staff. However, I believe that this decision will better aid Hwayoung in becoming a better artist."
He continued, "Like I said yesterday, this decision has nothing to do with the bullying rumors going around. Because of the haters that are spreading rumors, the situation has taken a route of its own. These hateful lies are continuing to spread online, which is only making it harder for T-ara and Hwayoung."
Kim Kwang Soo added, "I met with Hwayoung and Hyoyoung's parents yesterday to explain to them my decision, and they were understanding of it. They wished for the best for both T-ara and Hwayoung, so it's making it greatly difficult for both her parents and T-ara to see these unconfirmed stories coming up on the internet."
Core Contents Media further emphasized, "We ask that all articles in relation to T-ara be confirmed through our company before they are released on the internet."
