T-TANIC CONTINUES: Soyeon screws up



Recently several screen shots of a conversation taking place on app KakaoTalk Story (not to be confused with just KakaoTalk) between three individuals, one of whom is T-ara‘s Soyeon, started spreading online, gaining criticism. With more and more becoming aware of the conversation and media outlets reporting on the issue, Core Contents Media was reached for a comment.

It is being reported that the three individuals engaging in the exchange are Soyeon, Sua of D-Day, and actress Yoon Ee Na.

This all started when Soyeon saw Sua wearing a Kenzo brand shirt and remarked that she also had the same shirt.

Sua commented that it was hard to acquire the shirt, and Soyeon responded, “Because these days that unni wears all the Kenzo… I can’t wear it, I won’t wear it.”

Sua asked, “That unni? Then should I take it off?” This is when actress Yoon Ee Na joined in the conversation, commenting, “Do you mean Stitch? Keke”, Sua responded, “Angry Stitch?” and Yoon Ee Na responded, “Old Stitch”.

Sua laughed as she commented, “Kekekekekeke even old???” Yoon Ee Na explained, “Kekeke You can see a lot of wrinkles..” and Soyeon added, “Daebak Stitch kekekeke”.

Yoon Ee Na then commented, “But you know, I don’t think Stitch brushes her teeth.” The conversation then moved onto the topic of ‘Stitch’s wedding and the girls asking one another if they were going.

Netizens assumed that the ‘Stitch’ the girls were talking about was actress Yoon Eun Hye at first as she has the nickname of ‘Stitch’ and is known to love the brand Kenzo. As articles started surfacing regarding the matter, the story has shot to the top of real time rankings of popular search portals such as Nate and Naver, with netizens voicing their opinions, mostly criticizing the three for talking behind someone’s back.

When reached for comments, Core Contents Media commented, “Soyeon is quite shocked that a personal conversation has created such attention… ‘Stitch’ is just an unni that Soyeon knows, and does not have anything to do with the ‘actress A’ that people are assuming her to be.”


Core Contents Media releases official statement regarding KakaoStory conversation + Yoon Ee Na’s agency and Sua comment

Core Contents Media has released an official statement regarding the KakaoTalk Story (KakaoStory for short) conversation that took place between T-ara‘s Soyeon, Sua, and Yoon Ee Na.

The agency commented through a press release sent out to the media, “Soyeon and Soyeon’s acquaintances were not speaking in regards to a specific celebrity. We are sorry that this kind of incident has occurred and we will take more precaution and be more careful in the future.”

“The topic of ’Stitch’ in question came about because the tiger drawing on the shirt of the brand resembled ‘Stitch’ the character, and since a graduate student unni Soyeon knows wears that brand of clothing every time they meet, that is why they were talking about it,” they added.

The agency continued, “The name of ‘Stitch’ being discussed is not even 1% related to a celebrity, and it seems Soyeon’s acquaintance just joked about ‘Stitch’ without any other intentions after seeing the brand’s clothing with a tiger drawn on it.” It was also added, “Also, the part about Soyeon’s acquaintances discussing ‘Stitch’s marriage is not about the graduate student unni who is a fan of the brand, but about another acquaintance they know who is about to get married.”

The agency concluded, “As Soyeon and her acquaintances were not naming a particular celebrity, we do not feel that it is right that this has become a big issue because of assumptions… Even though Soyeon’s and her acquaintances’ words do not have anything to do with a particular celebrity, we are still sorry that this incident has occurred and we will be more cautious and careful in the future.”

By releasing the statement, Core Contents Media has once again hoped to confirm that the conversation taking place was not intended toward the celebrity netizens have been assuming to be the person in discussion (Yoon Eun Hye).

In addition to Soyeon’s agency, actress Yoon Ee Na’s agency, Dasom Entertainment, has also commented regarding the KakaoStory exchange.

They commented, “As it is hard to determine the exact story from the captures, we are currently confirming the truth.” They, however, confirmed that Yoon Ee Na did partake in the conversation, but denied that ‘Stitch’ was Yoon Eun Hye, commenting, “The SNS username captured is indeed Yoon Ee Na’s, and the celebrity A in question is just an assumption, it is not true.”

However, although Yoon Ee Na’s identity in the SNS capture has been confirmed, it is not known exactly who Sua is as D-Day‘s Sua has denied that she is one of the three through twitter.

Idk, you would think after the Hwayoung incident the T-ARA girls would learn not to say stupid things on public sites. And if they really were dissing Yoon Eun Hye, man those girls are in for it.

mte... i don't understand the issue here??
xalexandriam 22nd-Jan-2013 08:56 pm (UTC)
what i want to know is, who was the one who leaked this?
missnothings 22nd-Jan-2013 08:58 pm (UTC)
It's from Kakotalk Story, which is different to the regular Kako Talk. From what I understand it's something like Instagram, or twitter, or something. So it's viewed by the public, it's not a private conversation.
kiminikaeru 22nd-Jan-2013 08:56 pm (UTC)
what is d-day
cairistiona 23rd-Jan-2013 04:27 am (UTC)
It's a duo made up of Sua and an ex-member of B.Dolls (Seungjoo), and all their songs feature Melodia, another ex-B.Dolls girl (Geunyoung) (enough that people translating articles think Melodia is in D-Day). They're under some tiny ent agency and only released 2 singles last year.
aleexnews netizen comments killing me as usual22nd-Jan-2013 08:57 pm (UTC)
1. [+389, -9] Her brain is just completely messed up; Has she still not waken up?

2. [+336, -10] She still hasn't waken up, has she

3. [+335, -10] Isn't it Yoon Eun Hye? I heard her nickname was Stitch. These girls seriously haven't waken up yet

4. [+47, -1] I think it is Yoon Eun Hye, especially with the Kenzo and Stitch reference. And it was obvious that they were trying to cover it up once their convo became controversial because they started leaving comments like "Are you going to that unni's wedding??" trying to make it sound like they're talking about someone else. They can KakaoTalk that stuff, it's not necessary to write it on Kakao Story.

5. [+42, -0] If it really is Yoon Eun Hye, then these girls' careers are basically over.. But even if it isn't, it still becomes a problem because they're how old now and they're still talking crap about others behind their backs?

6. [+37, -3] This is what happens when you put girls without any sense of right or wrong into girl groups

7. [+34, -0] Stitch is Yoon Eun Hye... People are trying to defend her saying that they saw them talking about a wedding but it's obviously being staged since they're caught now.

8. [+31, -1] Soyeon, you're old too ㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+29, -1] Who do these bi*ches think they are talking crap about Yoon Eun Hye ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Yoon Ina? Sua? Who the fu*k are these girls?

10. [+27, -1] If you're reading this, wake the fu*k up and live your life properly. Your fans can't shield you for the rest of your life when all you do is hit rock bottom with everything that comes out of your mouth. Just get out of Korea and go live in Japan with determination.


lol shes obviously talking about her because if it was just a friend of theirs why would she say she is "popular lately"? everything fits with eunhye like the fact that she is popular right now after her drama and has been wearing kenzo. and she really has the stitch nickname that fans know her pretty well for.

T-tanic just keeps sinking more and more.
lysblack Re: netizen comments killing me as usual22nd-Jan-2013 09:13 pm (UTC)
LOL if she really was talking about YEH she has no right to call her ols, because YEH is only 3 years older than her.
janri 22nd-Jan-2013 08:58 pm (UTC)
Why does CCM say so much... really that was all so unnecessary. This will turn into another foot in mouth situation now. Still a T-ARA stan so whatevs.
devilsatin 22nd-Jan-2013 08:59 pm (UTC)
who cares
stephantasm 22nd-Jan-2013 09:00 pm (UTC)
"T-tanic" lmao. CCM really is shit at handling scandals omfg.
bauci 22nd-Jan-2013 09:16 pm (UTC)
I only click on the stories to laugh at CCM's PR department.
ceecile 22nd-Jan-2013 09:02 pm (UTC)
Yoon Eun Hye isn't getting married as far as I know
lysblack 22nd-Jan-2013 09:06 pm (UTC)
the last part of the convo, the wedding part, was added by them later when people noticed their convo and started to think it was YEH.
love_allure 22nd-Jan-2013 09:02 pm (UTC)

*sigh* t-error again?



They, however, confirmed that Yoon Ee Na did partake in the conversation, but denied that ‘Stitch’ was Yoon Eun Hye



OH HELL NO. BEST NOT BE TALKING ABOUT YEH.
sungmin 22nd-Jan-2013 09:03 pm (UTC)
soyeon is a cold bitch so i don't expect any better from her, but i have no idea why they chose to have this conversation in a public place.
lazmy 22nd-Jan-2013 10:28 pm (UTC)
this comment pretty much sums it all up
uchuufuku 22nd-Jan-2013 09:04 pm (UTC)
ugh who cares who they were talking about, those girls should be walking on eggshells. It's going to be hard enough for them to shake the whole mean girls stigma without doing stupid things like this.
lazmy 22nd-Jan-2013 10:29 pm (UTC)
i think they like the mean girl image tbh
lysblack 22nd-Jan-2013 09:04 pm (UTC)
how dumb can they be to not learn that they shouldn't say bullshit about others in social medias? and ngl i wouldn't be surprised if it was about YEH.

and OP your icon shows how i feel.

lol CCM keeps messing things up.
dbsk_2pm 22nd-Jan-2013 09:19 pm (UTC)
I don't even know. God. :| Why post it on public website? It's like she's asking for a ticket out of the music industry.
It will be so so so hard for T-ara to get rid of this image now. I wouldn't be surprised if CCM made it a concept for next album.
EDIT: Even if they weren't talking about Yoon Eun Hye, it's still mean and Soyeon would still have her image damaged.
And who are Sua of D-Day and Yoo Ee Na? Never heard of them.
CCM is failing big time!

No idea who Yoo Eena is, but D-Day are a nugu duo who debuted last year under a tiny ent angency. They had adverts on the side of vans and everything.
lysblack 22nd-Jan-2013 09:20 pm (UTC)
Also is this yoo ee na the yoo in na? Because in some sites the actress name is as in na and not ee na so idk if it is because of romanization.
misoras 22nd-Jan-2013 09:24 pm (UTC)
diff. surname and first name. yoo/yoon in a/in na
bolingi_aii 22nd-Jan-2013 09:24 pm (UTC)
why are they talking about YEH tho? what has she done to them?


did HwaYoung sign with YEH's agency?
missnothings 22nd-Jan-2013 10:07 pm (UTC)
I don't think so. I know she did sign with an agency that has other famous actresses like Son Ye Jin and Lee Min Jung, but not YEH.
goto 22nd-Jan-2013 09:24 pm (UTC)
w/e they survived the hwayo*ng incident and made a successful comeback shortly after, nothing can stop them

misoras 22nd-Jan-2013 09:26 pm (UTC)
isn't qri the only one that came off unscathed. i wish her well.
kneekalies 22nd-Jan-2013 09:25 pm (UTC)
she obviously don't care about her image because she's talking shit about another person on a public website.

I didn't know idols could do that..

misoras 22nd-Jan-2013 09:25 pm (UTC)
those two shady randoms need to focus on their own flop careers before casting jealous stones at a relevant queen.
