[Exclusive] ‘Enews’ Meets Leader of Group Rally Against T-ara
The owner of the Societal Justice Alliance was caught on camera after meeting with Kim Kwang Soo.
The alliance originally planned to put on a 30-man rally in front of Core Contents Media demanding the truth in the T-ara incident and the prevention of bullying in society, but came under fire when it suddenly cancelled the rally.
The owner, a woman in her 20s who went under the nickname Arvit, had turned in the application for the rally to the Seoul Gangnam Police Agency herself, but after meeting with the head of Core Contents Media Kim Kwang Soo a day before the rally on August 3, suddenly cancelled it.
The sudden cancellation, announced on the grounds of ‘insufficient preparations’, afterward drew suspicion and debate from those who were supportive of the Alliance.
TvN’s enews caught Arvit entering Core Contents Media on August 3, and met with her to interview her on why she put together the rally in the first place and then why she suddenly cancelled it.
Arvit told enews about the reason she visited Core Contents Media, “I came here to make Core [Contents Media] promise that it would reveal the truth to the public through a public statement.”
She then said about the rally, “I believe it will be tentatively cancelled because there’s a possibility it may become an illegal occupation. It’s not being cancelled altogether.”
The rally was cancelled in the end, but five netizens who got together through the Today’s Humor forum gathered as planned for the original rally on August 4 and held separate one-man protests.
The full interview, which may answer questions asked by Tijinyo (We Want the Truth from T-ara), the Today’s Humor forums and the Societal Justice Alliance, can be seen on the August 6 broadcast of tvN’s enews.
Since the outcast rumors exploded on the web, Core Contents Media has tried to stamp out the flames with various press releases and even a handwritten letter, but all attempts have ended in failure.
