KARA stole the show on the September 4th broadcast of MBC's 'Radio Star' with their sensitive responses to the touchy topics of dating and so forth, and the girls as well as their agency came forward to apologize.

DSP Media stated, "KARA made a comeback but it seemed like only her [Hara] dating rumors received attention so [Hara] was noticeably sad. She was embarrassed by the talk about her dating rumors... We shouldn't show that kind of image during broadcast and it wasn't a good way of behaving. Hara also told us that she sincerely apologized afterwards."


Seungyeon tweeted, "I was thinking about how to express my feelings all day long and I finally leave this post.. First off, through yesterday's broadcast of 'Radio Star' which we featured as guests on, we deeply apologize to the viewers who felt uncomfortable."


"We will deeply reflect on the aspects of our behavior that weren't professional. While filming and after the broadcast, we are really sorry and thankful to the 'Radio Star' MCs as well as J.Y. Park sunbaenim who helped and took care of us. We will become a Seungyeon, Hara, and Jiyoung who show a more brighter and hard-working image from now on."


Jiyoung also shared on Instagram, "As I grew up, there are lessons that I learned that I sometimes forget and some lessons that are always useful. I learned that there is no correct answer in the process of overcoming one's obstacles and choosing between two paths. Every time I receive pain from those who touch my emotional wounds, that is when I know that I lost my self-control. I don't want to live by following the intentions of the people who try to hurt me."

no..she shouldnt apologize..kyunhyun did wrong..yes I understand that producers include these questions..but if u saw the video he didnt get upset as soon as the question started but when kyuhuun said "if I open my mouth hara is over"..she kinda got pissed n then he said shez os "dating-idol"..which is like sayin she is a whore or something really bad..it was then she staryed to tear up..yes he apologized, but kara doesnt need to give any explanation..n ppl saying thay show is a bit "harsh"..Everything has a limit, professionalism doesnt mean you can say all the crap you want..so hara doesnt need to apologize.

yeah kyunhun should apologize. i don't think it was good of him to call her a dating idol. it makes her have a bad image for having a bf. in the interview she didn't handle herself that bad. i can't believe they are making her apologize for crying or being rude whatever. you can't control emotions and reactions.

Guys, let's remember that a lot even though these are variety shows and such, they're still scripted. And dating is a popular topic in variety shows so Hara should have seen it coming. She lashed out because it's a topic she didn't want to open up about but still... Scripted... It's for media attention.

This really isn't fair for Hara. First, people gang up on her for plastic surgery...now this? She, Kara, or DSP Media shouldn't be apologizing. Ugh, I just hate how in the Korean music industry dating is //so horrible// like omg it's a part of life. She shouldn't have to explain herself period. ;;

They shouldn't need to apologize. The people around them should be apologizing to them. The public is so goddamn mean...

Well~ there's a difference in the culture, perhaps, SKoreans dont like when ppl behave like that in the show, or the company just scolded them for it.

International Netizens: Blaming Kyuhyun

Korean Netizens: Hara / KARA overreacted

Radio Star is a show that gives harsh questions or comments that no other shows ask the guests/m.c.s so she shouldve known that those questions can come up.

And Jiyoung's reason for crying was very low.......

  • Have noticed that all the blame was thrown to Kyuhyun? Nobody said that the questions are from the production of Radio Star.. i mean that the question including dating was one of the questions of Radio Star.. Kyuhyun's fault was the phrase " if i open my mouth Hara will be over"..  he was just joking but somebody disagree with that.. anyway, that show is a little " hard "  in kind of questions but in other hand it has a lot of humor and fun..

    For those who just read this article please watch the full video first before you make a judgement. Do you really think Kyuhyun was "threatening" her?? Have you watch the way he spoke? This is what they said: Kyuhyun: If i open my mouth... YJS: Hara will be over? Kyuhyun: Yes, hara will be over. kkk... So he was just jokingly repeating YJS's sentence. And I think he was close with Kara so he's comfortable teasing them like that. In another Radio Star ep I remember Kyuhyun even said that he likes Hara. And do you really think Kyuhyun calls her dating-doll means slut shaming? Does Dating-dol = Slut/whore?? What I get from Korean Shows Dating-dol means an idol who have more experience in dating or publicly dating. I've seen a lot of male idols too have been called dating-dol too. That's what I know. Because I'm sure if dating-dol means slut/whore/bitch Kyuhyun or any other people on Korean tv will not say it. If it's a taboo or as bad as cursing do you honestly think an experience MC like Kyuhyun will say it?

    I think Kara did fine on the show, they were just being bothered about touchy subjects. They clearly expressed that they didn't want to talk about dating, but the MCs proceeded...and then Hara ends up in tears. Yes, the ladies' behavior was kinda unprofessional, but when it comes to touchy subjects, people shouldn't poke at them, like with Hara and those dating rumors. Love you guys ^^ <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

    Guys ik i'm going to get hatebut sometimes topics in korea are thought of differently then in other countries just because of our culture, i'm korean. Yea it's stupid to talk about this touchy stuff but that was the point of the show, actually both sides have fault but the reaction of the netizens are what get this thing fired up i think the mcs and kara already exchanged apologize and nobody's feelings are hurt and that's most important, also this show has to be scripted somewhere they're NOT doing it live and snippets are edited out and stuff. So all in all kara fighting on your comback, let's not focus on hara's breakup only, and radio star can't wait to see u next week thats what i think everyone should be thinking and just getting this over with. Instead of saying wtf korea is stupid or whatever because every country had different cultures and way of looking at media.
