The filming for the latest 'Idol Star Athletics Championship' was held on August 10, and the event is usually a great way for fans to cheer on their favorite idol groups and for members to connect with their fans.


But unfortunately it looks like some of the QUEEN'S who were in attendance were not happy with how little attention T-ara members gave their fans. Some fan sites have even declared that they're going on break..


One fan said, "Different from the other idols at 'ISAC', when fans called out to T-ara, they didn't properly turn their heads once, and only sat in their seats and their faces were solemn."


Another fan wrote, "Just to see the members' faces, we came at dawn and stayed up all night and only endured with our mental strength. But the members didn't even show their faces at the closing ceremony."


An individual also voiced out, "I haven't ever been more jealous of other group's fans than I was today."


Another posted, "It's not that I wished for big things like them coming up to us and handing out prepared lunches, and greeting and taking pictures with us like other idols did. I just only wished that at the very least they would have at least pretended like they cared about their fans."


After the event, some of T-ara's online fanclubs announced that they were going on break. One declared their break with the message, "I don't think fanatics are hogu's", with the term 'hogu' referring to a fool who is easy to take advantage of.






On the other hand, some of the T-ara members have posted on their own SNS about 'ISAC' and their fans. Soyeon has posted a photo on her Instagram showing off T-ara fans in the bleachers.


And on Twitter, Qri also expressed her thanks to fans, who supported them until the late hours, and apologized to those who weren't able to see the members that well from being so far away.





What are your thoughts on the matter?

[Update] - Some of the fan sites that expressed their disappointment have now issued an apology, stating that they may have misunderstood the situation and made their decisions rather harshly. Read their apology here.
