T-ara's Eunjung walks away from her role in SBS "Five Fingers"

T-ara's Eunjung (25) will leave the production of SBS weekend drama "Five Fingers".

Eunjung was cast as the role of Hong Dami who loves to play piano in Five Fingers. According to production staff, in an emergency meeting held on the night of the 21st, it was decided Eunjung would give up her role.

In a phone call from OBS with a "Five Fingers" official, they said, "Yesterday Eunjung and the other actors did a screenplay reading in the morning. During that time, the production crew held an emergency meeting about Eunjung. Eunjung's appearance in the drama could possibly be a big burden."

Following, "The other actors feel sympathetic towards Eunjung and it will be difficult to replace Eunjung's position. Whoever is yet the new cast member we hope that it will bring the drama in a good direction."

It was recently also announced Eunjung will leave her role in MBC "We Got Married" but this was in discussions since July according to MBC staff. It was evidently postponed because of the labor union strike with MBC.

apparently SBS/production wanted to keep her but sponsors were pressuring them to replace her :-( I hope she's OK!

I love how CCM is claiming that they found out through the media that Eunjung was kicked off, as if anyone is going to feel sorry for them LOL.

I'm surprised SBS took so long to drop her from the cast.

OOOOOH BOY. This is really getting worse and worse. I am sure T-ARA's company is having some serious regrets now.

If CCM had had any sense they would have begged the broadcast stations to release all the girls from their agreed contracts and schedules, and announced that they'll be having anti bullying classes and doing charity work while reflecting their actions for the time being (='till some other scandal takes the edge off their situation). And also publicly apologized for both Korean public and Hwayoung. By not doing it like that the situation will now just drag on and the t-ara will be forever associated with bullying and they can kiss goodbye for all the CF deals and sponsors (and thus for all the dramas) as nobody will want their product to be associated with bullying.

I can't even argue with any of this XD You makes sense! ;)

she was my fave t-ara member (and i don't even like t-ara that much, i just really adored eunjung for some reason and diddn't want to believe she was involved in the bullying) and the best actor out of the acting idols. tbh. too bad she ruined her career.

i remembered how netizens were really mad at her for being so good as baekhee in dream high and i thought it was a reflection of how great an actor she is. sighhhhh.

I was hoping Joo Ji Hoon would get a clean slate with his comeback drama, so I really don't mind this happening. No, I'm not an "oppa didn't do it" fan (I know his past), but I sincerely believe in his acting skills and it's sad to think about his fresh start eventually being tainted by association.

But hasn't the drama aired yet ?

To think Eunjung was my fav, pre-rice cake era...

Her character was supposed to only come in fifth or fourth episode.

I don't care about her and I just hope that this hole T-ara's controversy doesn't affect the drama too much if it already hasn't.

The insider states that he believes that the drama has not been able to market itself fully due to the controversy and negativity surrounding T-ara, and thus has made the decision to pull Eunjung out and replace her with another actress.

I'm worried for JJH. It's been too long and I just want him to do well D:
