Hwayoung tweets regarding the scandal and Eunjung's situation.

hwayoung
After keeping her silence for nearly a month, T-ara‘s former member, Hwayoung, has tweeted in response to the controversy and the way the situation has been unfolding.

Hwayoung wrote,

“Having come across articles about Eunjung unni’s leave from her drama, my heart felt uneasy. It is true that there were confrontations due to differences in opinions with the T-ara members while I was promoting as part of T-ara. However, with the stories about bullying going around and the situation growing worse, my heart was in pain. Both sides have also been really upset and hurt by the distorted facts [that have come out]. However, there were times when I was happy while we were all under one roof, so I want to forget about the past and want us to cheer each other on with smiles on our faces. You all showed so much love, care, and attention to T-ara, so I’m very sorry for having caused concern and worry through this incident to everyone.”

Comments:
1. [+2,434, -167] Looks like Kwang Soo forced her again...

2. [+2,102, -100] It's not only the bullying controversy. T-ara has a lot of unexplained scandals, from Hyomin's greeting case to Jiyeon's webcam strip show and being lazy on stage... There's a bunch and yet they tried to conclude all of them with "determination" comments. ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Too bad, the public's already turned their backs on you.

3. [+1,889, -152] It might be true but it's better to stay quiet at times like this.

1. [+771, -41] How is it that an article was released immediately after her tweet? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Try harder, Kwang Soo. T-ara's already over the more you try so just retire them.

2. [+700, -42] Smells like someone's forcing her from behind...

3. [+638, -42] Anyway.. No hope for T-ara anymore. They had good songs sometimes but.. Oh well, nothing that can be done anymore.

1. [+1,684, -24] CCM really seems like a psycho company.

2. [+1,432, -21] I'm really flabbergasted with CCM. What do they think they can earn by getting back into the drama? The more they drag this on, the more pathetic they'll look to producers

3. [+1,385, -23] These girls are causing a disruption everywhere they go, aren't they... If they had apologized immediately after the scandal broke out and gone on hiatus for reflection, none of this would've happened and they wouldn't be disrupting the work of others. I noticed senior Chae Si Ra trying to console Eunjung at the press conference, and now Eunjung's paying back her kindness by ripping on them in the media. tsk tsk

Why is she apologising? CCM brought it upon themselves with how they handled the situation.
iiluminate 28th-Aug-2012 06:38 pm (UTC)
honestly the real one at fault in this mess is CCM, though things would have been a lot better if the girls had all behaved more professionally to begin with
love_keiko 28th-Aug-2012 06:19 pm (UTC)
she's officially been kicked out right?
devilsatin 28th-Aug-2012 06:24 pm (UTC)
yeah last month
gacchiri 28th-Aug-2012 06:22 pm (UTC)
I just hope Hwayoung (and Hyoyoung if she's rly out of CCM too) find a good company.
onlylexy 28th-Aug-2012 06:26 pm (UTC)
Same.
devilsatin 28th-Aug-2012 06:27 pm (UTC)
Good. Everyone needs to move on imo!

//T-ara has a lot of unexplained scandals, from Hyomin's greeting case to Jiyeon's webcam strip show//
what was the Hyomin scandal?

why is it that every time there's a statement from Hwayoung, it feels like KKS is holding a gun to her (or her twin's) head :/
devilsatin 28th-Aug-2012 06:33 pm (UTC)
when she didn't greet some nobody singer backstage and he got mad and trashed them on twitter
a_perfect_shade 28th-Aug-2012 06:38 pm (UTC)
reading between the lines, she's basically admitting she was bullied
mikilove13 28th-Aug-2012 06:48 pm (UTC)
Didn't KKS basically admit to it in one of the statements he released after she was kicked out of CCM?
erbalurbal 28th-Aug-2012 06:40 pm (UTC)
This whole scandal should be used as a training scenario for future PR people.
oppa_did_meanit 28th-Aug-2012 06:43 pm (UTC)
Too bad, the public's already turned their backs on you.

lol ouch

I feel like if a scandal like this happened in America they would just disappear for a while then come back and be as big as they ever were. But the Korean public seems to remember everything and hold grudges for a long, long time. I wonder how much talent has been squandered due to netizens...
asnindie 28th-Aug-2012 06:48 pm (UTC)
Look at Chris Brown, if he an comeback then anyone can.

iznanassi 28th-Aug-2012 07:18 pm (UTC)
They dug themselves into a hole.
reelrecnizereel 28th-Aug-2012 07:53 pm (UTC)
Bless her for not being grugeful but that guilt ridden apologetic attitude can't be healthy.
chanqsun 28th-Aug-2012 08:45 pm (UTC)
jesus.....

Indeed.

is allkpop now team t-tanic or why did they post a eye candy post with pics from t-ara a few days ago and wrote an essay about eunjung on WGM?
soft_daisy Re: OT but29th-Aug-2012 01:43 am (UTC)
not surprised. it seemed like over half the commenters there were bashing people who didn't support t-ara on the issue the last time i was at akp
falling_empress 28th-Aug-2012 10:06 pm (UTC)
Snorrrrrrrrrre.

poor girl, i feel so bad for her.
tsukikipin 29th-Aug-2012 04:48 am (UTC)
Amen to all those commenters.

I'm not a T-ara fan not even a listener, but I respect this statement Hwayoung's posted. The non-fan in me says she shouldn't even say sorry, but if I were her fan, I'd know that it's part of her responsibility as an artist. Even if she's out of CCM now, she has to do this for the fans. She's in a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation whenever she speaks after the fiasco, but I'm impressed with how decent her statements have been. Come on. We've all seen how other celebrities lash out after they've been treated unjustly. Hwayoung's young, been mistreated, and any of that could have excused for irrational behavior, but I gotta hand it to her, she's been as level-headed about this as much as she can.

We'll never know the details but all I get from Hwayoung's statements are "apologies for causing this mess", while other parties involved are just "defensive". :) I think that says a lot.

Phew that was long. This'll be my last comment on any T-ara thread ever. I hope to see Hwayoung somewhere happy in the future, idol or not.
