Are the T-ara Members Making Hwa Young into an Outcast?
Core Contents Media said that the company will make a big announcement on July 30, making the public wonder what the announcement is about and whether or not it will address the rumors of member conflict within T-ara.
So what is exactly happening with the group?
From July 25 to 26, T-ara held its Budokan Concerts in Japan. Unfortunately for member Hwa Young, she had injured her ankle and was unable to perform for a good majority of the show. Hwa Young came out for the Day By Day performance but sat in a chair the entire time.
The problem began when Ham Eun Jung tweeted on July 25, “Like how the location creates a person, a person’s will also does the same. Sigh. It’s so unfortunate. You have to know how to take care of the people around you.”
Following after Ham Eun Jung′s tweet, So Yeon, the leader of T-ara tweeted, “The difference between will + respect + consideration.”
Hyo Min and Ji Yeon also wrote, “The difference of will ^^ Let’s all work hard with will! Fighting,” and “The difference of will ^^ with common sense ^^ and always with humility ^^.”
On the same day, Hwa Young tweeted, “There are times when just will is not enough. I’m a bit upset, but at the same, I’m positively taking this as a blessing from above. God, you know everything right?”
On July 26, Hyo Young, Hwa Young′s twin sister, tweeted, “What’s the point of having a pretty face. Your heart has to be pretty. Is a sick person not even a person? I’m hurting too. I really want to cry.”
Hwa Young later tweeted on July 27, “Ryu! Thank you for being by my side. I love you.” She posted a picture of what is presumed to be the sisters, holding each other’s hands with identical rings on the fingers.
With the public display of mysterious tweets, the media has been making speculations of possible member conflicts and Hwa Young being an outcast.
To make matters even worse, it is being said that Bo Ram has unfollowed Hwayoung from Twitter as of July 28 (although some have also said that Bo Ram never followed Hwa Young on Twitter in the first place). Hwa Young also did not perform with the group on July 29 on SBS’ Inkigayo, further creating room for rumors.
Criticism has been rising for the group, as all the members are passive aggressively and publicly dealing with the problem in question. Netizens are especially pointing fingers at So Yeon, since as the leader, she hasn’t been showing much efforts to solve the situation.
With so many speculations and rumors flying around as this situation escalates into a bigger problem, all eyes and ears are awaiting for what Core Contents Media CEO, Kim Kwang Soo, will have to say on July 30.
