T-ara opened up about the past controversy involving former member, Hwayoung

The girls received severe criticism and hate from the public after the departure of Hwayoung from their group. To OSEN, T-ara admitted to their struggles due to the incident, saying, "After that incident, T-ara's image changed. Due to that, we had a hard time and our fans also went through a tough time. We endured the pain because it's our issue but it's not a duty that our fans must undertake. We are unimaginably thankful that they remained with love. We won't forget them til the day we die."

Next, to a question asking if they'd be able to greet Hwayoung with a smile now, T-ara responded, "Hwayoung is doing well, and since a long time has passed, we think we can see her with a smile now."

Hwayoung is a rat.

My theory is, T-ara members never approved the adition of Hwayoung to the team, they thought it was unfair, since they were doing so well by themselves and were already popular because of their hard work. This decision per se is strange, why would the company add a member, whose talent or visuals or fame aren't expectacular enough to justify it, to a perfectly fine group? We can tell by that, Hwayoung had some sort of favoritism or sympathy from CCM. Even so , the group tried to get along with her and became friends at the end, at least good co-workers, as we all can see from their tv appereances. But, when she couldn't follow the team's rythm, the sense of unfairness, plus the stress, made the members react in an impulsive and inmature way, in my opinion, an anger mostly towards their company, that lead to a bigger and unnecesary scandal. Gosh, I felt like I was describing a drama plot. So, T-ara aren't bullies to me, they are just girls who had an argument with another girl (who seems a little attention seeker to me, sorry), as usual between girls, but made the mistake to make it public.They could be as famous as GG and 2NE1 by now, but they couldn't mantained their professionalism to the end, and that's what differs them from other successful groups. They didn't deserve this much hate but they had fault as well. I'm a Queen since their begginings and I love Hwayoung rap, just for the record. Sorry for my crappy English.

my personal opinion, your profession is an idol and you got paid ... when your employer want to make a change, if you dont agree theres 2 option get out or keep up the professional ... and with t-ara case they dont do both and everything down to the gutter ... i dont know whether the bullying is true or not ... but as once i said as an idol you should make sure you are perfect for everything

First off, the company should be blamed for adding new members to the group who was at their peak during the time. And I don't know the real reason of Hwa young leaving but T-ara was doing just fine before that girl started creating those scandals/stories.

To my knowledge (and you can search thing on all K-pop to check) Hwayong was kicked out BY the company during the scandal.

Mish_mish Saturday, November 5, 2016

Hwayoung was never girl group material. period. T-ara was always incredibly hardworking.they couldn't let hwayoung slack off ..hence the conflict. hwayoung then proceeded to make the most of the false scandal. soak up the sympathy and attention and start her 'acting career'. while the haters(the real bullies) are still here talking crap about T-ara(the real victims). there is no justice in this world!

I may not be their fan ( I like their music thou ) but ain't no bullied victim gonna go around hugging and messing around with their bully !

pink_oracle Sophia_Sone4ever Saturday, November 5, 2016

Yep, we all saw people get picked on in school and I don't think anyone can say they ever saw someone back hug their bully.

Sophia_Sone4ever pink_oracle Saturday, November 5, 2016

True , it's just dumb to think they had bad blood. Something we're unaware of must be gone on.

Their case show us how a human being can be so horrible. People hated the group so easily, even tried to create lies about them. t-ara always worked hard and their song are so good! I'll always support them. T-ara fighting!!
