T-ara‘s Eunjung has been robbed of a staggering, 23,000 Euros (~ $30,078 USD) while in Italy.
During T-ara’s stay in Italy, Eunjung was put in charge of managing the budget for T-ara and Core Content Media‘s new seven-member girl group.
It has been reported that on April 12th at 5PM, Central European Time, the group took a short break during their photo shoot at a cathedral square in Milano. At this time, Eunjung went to purchase some coffee when she was robbed, losing her handbag to a thief. Although 23,000 Euros were lost from the unfortunate incident, the members’ passports were kept by a different staff member, which is a huge relief.
Regarding the accident, Eunjung expressed grief and sadly stated, “I’m so sorry to T-ara and the other seven members. I will reimburse the money when I return to South Korea.” Meanwhile the other members expressed, “She did her best as our guide. She was robbed while she was working hard, so it’s ok.”
Eunjung also expressed her gratitude to her fellow members who comforted her after the accident, stating, “We were able to successfully complete the filming due to the other members who stood by and comforted me.”
However, one staff member revealed what happened behind the scenes. “After the filming was finished, Eunjung went back to the hotel and cried all night,” he stated.
In related news, videos of T-ara and Core Content Media’s new girl group’s Europe trip have been frequently updated on Loen‘s official Youtube channel.

CCM is so fucking stupid. There is just so much WTF about this incident. Who ever thought it was a smart idea to let Eunjung walk around in a foreign country with over $30, 000 in her purse...I just can't. And why was she made in charge of the budget, is CCM seriously so cheap that they don't have treasurers or finance managers to be in charge of that stuff?? I don't even care for T-ara, but I feel so bad for them being part of this company. Anyways, thank god Eunjung didn't get hurt. /endrant
