Recently, Han Seungyeon’s father was interviewed on a Japanese program, and he firmly singled out KARA’s leader, Park Gyuri, as the underlying cause between KARA’s dispute with DSP Media.
On this week’s broadcast of Fuji TV’s ”Super News“, the reporter asked Han Seung Yeon’s father, Han Jong Chil, about who he thought was mainly responsible for KARA’s dispute. He replied, “I think the leader is acting with no responsibilities. This happened because of bad communication.”
He continued, “As KARA kept growing, the agency failed to be a good back support for them. The kids’ futures have become unstable.”
Han Jong Chil stated that the “members never had conflicts and disputes between each other”, but this is the first time someone has pointed their fingers at a particular member.
Netizens commented, “Why is he doing interviews like this in Japan?”, and “You can’t put all the blame onto the leader.”
Seungyeon’s father (who, by the way, is also a master sword craftsman) has spoken up to clarify the controversy surrounding his recent remarks in a Fuji TV interview. The situation is “a complete misunderstanding“, he said to Korean news outlets.
He went on to say, “What was said in the Japanese broadcast was correct, but I had no intention of putting the blame on Gyuri. In any group, the leader is supposed to take care of the other members’ complaints by addressing them with the company. However, as the group’s complaints got bigger and bigger, Gyuri did not play her role well, which is why I’m disappointed.” However, he maintains that he “did not intend to blame Gyuri” for the problem with the company.
