T-ara to Indefinitely Suspend Activities

T-ara will indefinitely suspend all activities following the controversy surrounding their ex-member, Hwayoung. The group’s final official stage will be at the Yeosu Expo 2012 on August 1 for the SBS “K-Pop Yeosu Expo Super Concert.”

“Since we’ll be focusing on our next album promotions, we haven’t scheduled any new activities at this point,” an official from T-ara’s agency was quoted as saying by local media.

In fact, Eunjung skipped her scheduled appearance at the VIP premiere of “I’m the King” on July 30. She was supposed to be at the premiere to show support for Joo Ji Hoon, her partner on upcoming SBS drama “Five Fingers.”

Since the announcement of Hwayoung’s expulsion from the group on July 30, T-ara and Core Contents Media have faced serious public backlash. Countless reports of bullying and hazing have surfaced and thousands of T-ara fans dropped out of the official fan club.
