T-ara’s 7 Most Controversial Moments
The biggest news of the day was T-ara’s announcement of releasing Hwayoung from the group.
On July 30, Kim Kwang Soo, CEO of Core Contents Media, said in a statement that Hwayoung would be leaving the group due to her “disturbing behavior,” based on the opinions of 19 staff members. Hwayoung refuted by tweeting, “Facts without the truth,” and fans have reacted furiously to her departure, as more than 6,300 fans dropped out of the official fan club.
But this is not the first time T-ara made headlines with controversial issues. Since their debut in 2009, ironically T-ara has been involved in more controversial issues than other top idol groups. We don’t have the exact data to prove it, but it seems like T-ara somehow managed to get their names out more frequently than other idol stars.
Here we have 7 of the most controversial issues that involved T-ara members in the past. We hope the Hwayoung issue gets settled soon, and the girls find peace amidst all the media hoopla going around!
