Why bring it up again when it's been five years? For some, bringing up a massive scandal or fight like that would be stupid. She's reopening something that happened in the past and adding drama. Why would you bring it up if you're that upset? I never really kept up with T-ara but a past member bringing up an incident is kinda fishy. What's her game here? Why bring up the past when you know yourself, it didn't end well for the entire group members.

Everybody talks like they're an expert but the only people who REALLY know what went on are the Tara members and Hwayoung herself. I've liked Tara even before the controversy and I honestly think Hwayoung should just have been an actress. Tara was already well established and had an actor, it was really all the CEO's fault. But if anybody's been in an argument or a fight, they know that there are always two sides. It's the undeniable truth that Hwayoung wasn't as hurt as she always claimed to be (from the pictures of her walking fine by herself and then suddenly latching onto bodyguards when there was a big crowd shows that). It's also true that Tara left petty jabs at her and her attitude on their twitters, all coming together to publicly criticize her. However, the feelings and words that were exchanged between all of them, the possible "jung" (as we koreans call it which isn't REALLY friendship but more like a closeness or a "i'm used to you" feeling that runs really deep), and most of all the way they really separated whether on okay terms or on bad terms; we don't really know. Since they've been very ambiguous about it and have somewhat moved on I don't think we'll ever really know. The point is everybody should stop being blind supporters of one side without even knowing what really went on. If they make you uncomfortable or you don't like them then turn a blind eye towards them and move on. Alot of people who hate Tara call them bullies but they turn around and do the exact same thing without even knowing what the real truth is. Pretty hypocritical.

I truly wished that she'd actually be honest about it, but every time its some watered down nonsense. It's so pointless to bring it up if you can't take a firm position and clarify things.

So the story goes that because she got added later to T-ara, the others never accepted her. Being an "outcast" is a big thing in Korea and they get bullied really harshly. There was bunch of SNS posts from other members saying she lacked "determination" and shortly after she got fired from the group. Then the shit storm hits. Netizens link the other member's tweets bad mouthing her to her getting fired and other industry people claiming she's a nice kid and the CEO was just trying to bury her, which monumentally backfires. Basically everyone ever sides with hwayoung and the CEO makes the ultimate mistake of just trying to ride it out, not understanding how big of mess it is, fans start to make hate posts, there's shit tons of hate articles, all members get cancelled from their CFs, companies demand reimbursements, Eunjung gets written off from her drama, T-ara becomes biggest outcast in kpop world. Takes them years to get even small gigs in Korean tv. still they're hated, even 6 years later.

All of that is somewhat of a "story" though. Only thing we know for a fact, is that T-ara members did leave really petty fucking tweets about hwayoung when she was injured. That deserved some hate, but not to this extent.

There was never any bullying,that was a story the media went with based on a misunderstanding

The other side of the story (because netizens like to flip flop between which one they believe), is that Hwayoung was lazy and had a bad attitude, so the members obviously didn't like her. When T-ara became big, Hwayoung turned into a diva, thinking she was hot shit for being a celebrity, and there were several times she pretended to be hurt and/or sick when she was really doing something like getting her nails done, and she threw hissy fits and refused to perform. This is what led the other members to tweet about 'determination,' and eventually the discord became too much and she got kicked out. At this point she adopted a 'poor innocent me' persona, which people bought, and everyone turned on T-ara, coming up with a bunch of bullshit 'evidence' that they were bullying her. You can find a bunch of websites and posts supporting one side or the other, but honestly, the truth is probably somewhere in between the two. OP, you can do more research if you want and decide what you believe. Lord knows there's a million theories. TL;DR: The opposing theory to the bullying scandal is that Hwayoung was kind of a diva bitch, so the other members got pissed and she got kicked out, and then everyone blamed T-ara for it.

And @_jarhoon It's quite messy. I guess we never know the actual story unless someone reveal the whole thing. But haters and people really need to move on thou. I really do feel like one wasn't entire at fault and both the people involved were somewhat at fault. But yeah its Been 6 year, past is in the past. People including media and people involved should stop talking about or they might keep getting hated.

Some of y'all be talking as if she's the victim. All of what she said was blatant lies, even her parents came out on twitter a few years back exposing her and telling everyone the truth. EVEN STYLISTS, MAKE UP ARTISTS, ETC SAID THAT IT WASN'T TRUE. As a Queen, I can't be more disappointed. I can't forgive her for what she's done to TARA, she must feel extremely happy to use the bullying group, drag a whole group down and practically the whole company just to leave the group and continue with an acting career. Hwayoung did nothing for the group, if anyone got bullied it would be Jiyeon. She BROKE HER GODDAMN NOSE ON LIVE STAGE. She's such a hardworker and it would be no surprise if she was doing it all against her will or was uncomfortable/harrassed.

Aparently, her parents hate her. She was involved in other controversy in the past. Her nipple slipped during live broadcast. Since SK is a very conservative country, it became such a big deal that her parents even kicked her out and disowned her. She isn't a saint, that's for sure, but i admit it must have been tough for her. After this controversy, she got problems with her group. She was pratically on her own, and all of that at a very young age. T-ARA was the first kpop girl group i got into, and it was very sad to see all of those events unfold. I feel sorry for both the sides, the girls and Hwayoung. It was tough for all of them.

She's not disliked by her parents. Her mum loves her dearly and she also has her parents. Her dad wanted to apologise to TARA sincerely and went on Twitter to do it. Not sure what you guys are doing protecting trash like her.
