Core Contents Media and "Inkigayo" PD Apologizes about Hwayoung’s Incident

T-ara‘s Hwayoung suffered an unfortuante accident on yesterday’s episode of SBS‘s “Inkigayo,” which has prompted officials of Core Contents Media to release a statement regarding the matter.

On the morning of January 30, officials of the agency revealed, “We feel deeply regretful about the accident that occurred on ‘Inkigayo.'” 

Maknae Hwayoung accidentally exposed a part of her chest when her black shirt slid down, creating quite possibly the worst live accident in years. 

The official continued, “We found rumors claiming that it was pre-recorded, but that’s not true at all. T-ara’s stage was done completely live, and it was a live broadcast accident. There weren’t any problems during their rehearsal so it’s upsetting that it had to occur during the live show. Before the fact that she’s a celebrity, she’s still a minor, so we hope that people will remember that she’s a young girl.” 

Officials of SBS were also asked why they had caught her on several different angles despite the accident, leading them to reply, “First of all, T-ara’s stage was live, not pre-recorded. The head PD was busy at the time so he was not able to pay attention to the incident. We are extremely sorry about what happened.” 

Hwayoung’s twin sister Hyoyoung consoled fans and her sister by tweeting, “Don’t worry.” 

Cheer up Hwayoung!
