CCM kicks Hwayoung out of T-ara



T-ara‘s parent company Core Contents Media announced today that one of its members, Hwayoung, will be leaving the group effective immediately.

CCM’s CEO, Kim Kwang Soo, announced the departure in a press release written by the president himself. “In deference to the complaints by T-ara’s staff of 19 people (5 stylists, 7 hair & makeup, 5 on-site managers, 2 team mangers), Hwayoung’s contract as an artist will be voided effective immediately with no conditions.”

Kim Kwang Soo denied any correlation with the recent controversy that erupted following tweets from the T-ara members that were interpreted by many as one-sided bullying against Hwayoung. “We wish to impress upon the fact that this has nothing to do with the ‘bullying’ reports surrounding T-ara,” CCM said. “Although the staff of Core Contents Media stayed up into early morning discussing with the T-ara members who all wanted to stay with Hwayoung, we apologize in saying that we could not forsake the arguments of the staff members.”

“We deeply apologize for the many incidents which made everyone who loved T-ara nervous and worried, and we have nothing but sadness to convey such an unsettling incident on their third anniverary. We also apologize again to the T-ara members and wish Hwayoung all the best as a powerful rapper,” CCM concluded.

Hwayoung will leave T-ara after 20 months, leaving original members Boram, Qri, Eunjung, Soyeon, Hyomin, and Jiyeon, as well as new member Ahreum.

THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS. why in the fucking hell would you prioritize staff over one of your artists even if said artist has a bad attitude? there are artists with bad attitudes everywhere but this is the first time ive heard an artist get booted out of a company because of this. ridiculous.

that said i dont believe this shit. hwayoung bb needs a better company.

well...
montauks 30th-Jul-2012 04:26 am (UTC)
damn i feel bad for her. i'm not buying into the bullying stuff and even if its true irdc

but i feel bad that kks is basically the demon. he puts her into a group where she has no purpose, then decides to kick her out once all hell breaks loose. like the staff complaints are all too convenient tbh, pretty sure thats just the work of ccm's flawless pr
