Despite the conclusion of their promotions amid controversy, the T-ara members have continued to appear in main channel variety shows.

The August 6 broadcast of KBS2’s Escaping Danger Number 1 featured the T-ara members Eun Jung and Ji Yeon.

Eun Jung and Ji Yeon appeared like any other guests, learning about the accidents that can threaten people’s lives in everyday situations and imitating the teeth exercise they were taught on the show.

In just an hour after the broadcast ended, however, the program’s viewer boards were bombarded with more 1,000 posts containing viewer complaints. Netizens said, ‘Do you think it’s right for those at the center of a controversy to appear in a broadcast when the problem hasn’t been solved yet?’, ‘Shouldn’t they come on after the problem’s been solved?’, ‘Why did they conclude their promotions, anyway?’, ‘They have a “will” to fight with the viewers’ and ‘The producers are the problem; they ignore viewer opinions.’

MBC’s Quiz to Change the World also went through a similar ordeal after the two had appeared on its August 4 broadcast with new member Ah Reum, and was especially hit hard by Tijinyo’s protests.

The T-ara incident seems to be far from reaching a conclusion, as Core Contents Media continues to issue appeasing press releases, yet has T-ara appear on broadcasts as scheduled.
