News about T-ara members bullying Hwayoung and her departure from the group have flooded the internet, becoming the hottest trending topic of the day. The news came as a shock to many domestic as well as international fans.
On July 30, Kim Kwang Soo, CEO of Core Contents Media, tweeted in English, “Hwayoung’s recent behavior has created a difficult situation in Core Contents Media. For this reason, I had to terminate her contract. However, if Hwayoung apologizes for her actions, I will discuss the possibility of her return with my staff and with the members of T-ara.” He continued, “Before that happens, it is important that she accepts responsibility for what she has done.”
With more evidence regarding T-ara’s bullying popping up almost every hour, Core Contents Media attempted to do damage control, stating that the posts from the supposed back-up dancer and trainee are completely false and baseless.
