Hwayoung interviewed on T-ara again


Article: Hwayoung "I want to have a drink with the T-ara unnis"

Source: Ilgan Sports via Nate

- Can you talk honestly about what happened with your exit from T-ara?

"It's true that my relationship with the members wasn't great but I believe it's the same for any other group, just that it doesn't reach the surface. I don't think our group had especially bad relationships or anything, just the same conflicts anyone else would face while working in society. I made mistakes and so did the unnis. It's difficult to say who made the bigger mistake. Our conflict arose out of misunderstanding."

- You were kicked out of your group. What happened?

"I found out that I was kicked out through an internet article. I turned on the computer and found my name on the live search rankings. I clicked to check it out and found articles talking about how I had left T-ara. It was at the time when I got into a fight with the unnis and I was resting at home so I didn't understand what was going on. I hadn't expected it at all. I asked the company and they told me that I was indeed kicked out. I was upset at first but I could later understand why Kim Kwang Soo CEO had to do what he did. He's like a father to me and took care of me well. I hope to see him again."

- Do you still keep in contact with the members?

"Not yet. But the unnis are busily promoting now and I'll be promoting again soon so I think we'll meet at a broadcast hall someday. I want to ask if they have been well and to find strength. Maybe when more time passes, we'll be able to laugh about the past and about being naive. I want to have a drink with the unnis someday too."

1. [+226, -15] I don't think it will be good for her to continue talking about T-ara....... The journalists should stop asking her about T-ara~ Every article about Hwayoung is always about T-ara...

2. [+215, -35] Well.. T-ara hasn't even acknowledged any of it, nor have they apologized~

3. [+178, -60] If she really cares about T-ara, she shouldn't act like an angel with all these comments about them

4. [+34, -23] You can knock it off now... I felt bad for you at first but you're overstepping lines now.

5. [+31, -13] Hwayoung-ah, your relationship with them has already reached a point of no return. Their happiness is your trial and vice versa... Just stay out of their way. Don't think of grabbing a drink with them. You are still quite naive.

6. [+22, -4] I don't know what the rest of you expect her to say when journalists ask her about T-ara. "They're all b*tches and I want to kill every single one of them!" As if she'd ever say that. She's going to speak nicely of them publicly.

7. [+13, -4] She's only popular because of the black and white logic that since T-ara is bad, Hwayoung must be good.

8. [+12, -8] Stop talking about T-ara already. I bet they hate you so much right now for constantly bringing up the reason they're in the rut they're in now.

  5. move on already!

  6. How is it even her fault?


    FACT IS, if she's going to be promoting, she's going to be asked about T-ara. It was a huge scandal, so I honestly don't know what people are expecting. It's going to follow her.


    Unless she somehow gets known more for acting than the group she was a part of previously, there's no escape.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Now that netizens can't use Hwayoung as an instrument to cyberbully T-ara with, they don't care about her anymore.

  8. this situation is past the point of being "annoying" now smh can we all just move on please

    What a lie. Surely she must of been anger and hurt when she found out about her being kicked out like that. She wasn't even told directly. What a company. Sheesh.

    This. I'm bored too.

  11. Why do they constantly ask her about T-ara? Hwayoung is obviously isn't going to have an all tell breakdown revealing everything that happened.

    [+226, -15] I don't think it will be good for her to continue talking about T-ara....... The journalists should stop asking her about T-ara~ Every article about Hwayoung is always about T-ara...



    maybe because nobody wants to know anything else from Hwayoung? They really should stop asking her questions about T-ara though

    ReplyDelete
  12. If they don't ask her about T-Ara what would they ask her about?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I want her to actually do something with her career...because at this point, she's just going to live and die as the poor girl who got kicked out of t-ara.

    ReplyDelete
  14. i think if hwayoung really did hate on t-ara, she would have thrown way more shade at them in her answers. with the way she answered those questions, i think she blames CCM more than she blames the members. anyway, she seems quite nice, because even though she can't really hate on them in interviews, she really could have bitched about them in a roundabout way, but she didn't.

    ReplyDelete
  15. " I asked the company and they told me that I was indeed kicked out." Heol

    ReplyDelete
  16. I can't believe some of the comments are actually blaming her for talking about T-ara. Uhhh what is she supposed to do when the journalist constantly asks about them? Ignore the question? If she said "sorry I don't want to talk about that", then what would the journalist ask about, honestly? It's not like Hwayoung has done anything substantial - career wise - after being leaving T-ara... at least nothing that's worthy enough (in my opinion) to have a whole interview about.

    You got it right!

  18. This pity card is getting boring... It's not working anymore, Hwayoung-ah..

  19. Enough is enough Hwayoung's management company~ Next time a question regarding T-ARA comes up just say you don't want to answer it. Or else you're just asking for hate.

  21. It's not her fault she's constantly asked about it. It looks like she just gave some general answers which may or may not be how she really feels. Journalists need to stop questioning her about it and her agency needs to put T-ara on a list of things not to talk about

    ReplyDelete
  22. to be bullied or not, idols are just co workers.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Honestly, i feel more bad about T-ara than this girl :/ It's not even for sure that she was bullied, and this netz just go around wishing the girls to die. I just can't believe that in group with that many members, they all turn out to be bullies? I'm not taking sides, i'm not even a fan, but it's really gross when you read comments like that, imagine how their family must feel, when they read this -you should die, leave the countriy or whatever- comments. She should have take legal actions against the company, if she was somehow mistreated. All this speculations just bring bad to her and the group.

    ReplyDelete
  24. her management should refrain any Question related to T-ara ...

    qurl your 'father' would've told you that you were kicked out, but no, you only knew by an article online. wat

    Why is she even getting interviews now?

    ReplyDelete
  27. tbh there's nothing to be ask from hwayoung, she got all these attention because of t-ara so where ever she go now t-ara name would gonna be surround her unless she will hit daebak on acting and what she will do later

    ReplyDelete
  28. That is awful how she found out she was no longer a member of T-ara.

  30. i know right, at the first yes netizen are use hwayoung as an instrument to hit t-ara back now she's just useless for them and there's nothing special about her that netizen will go crazy for

    ReplyDelete
  31. well so far other than t-ara she's not known for anything else so there aren't many things to ask her about honestly

    ReplyDelete
  32. The patience of netizens, lol.


    First Hwayoung article: Poor girl.
    Second article: Ok, that's enough.
    Third: RIGHT.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Plot twist: We are now watching drama and Hwayoung is playing Yoo Semi.

    AGREED! knets are full of excuses to hate on someone

    ReplyDelete
  35. Blame the journalist to keep asking her something about t-ara. I agree with comment number 6. If she said something like 'yeah that was right. Unnies was bully me' they must be get hate right know. And if she said something 'no this is all my fault' knetz would called her under acting. And still hate her.

    ReplyDelete
  36. can't they stop mentioning t-ara ??????

    ReplyDelete
  37. I hope she'll stop doing those interviews or the journalists stop asking her question related to that.
    Because at the end she is only know as "the one who was kicked out of T-ARA"

    I also hope that the knetz let T-ARA alone, it's been more than 1 year right now, get over it, you'll never now what really happened between them and Hwayoung.

    ReplyDelete
  38. hwayoung and t-ara again.. duh.. it's getting boring..

    ReplyDelete
  39. 2. [+215, -35] Well.. T-ara hasn't even acknowledged any of it, nor have they apologized~

    Um, yes they have... MULTIPLE TIMES.

    8. [+12, -8] Stop talking about T-ara already. I bet they hate you so much right now for constantly bringing up the reason they're in the rut they're in now.



    I doubt that. T-ara probably appreciates Hwayoung's honesty in this latest interview. The only people T-ara must hate are netizens who refuse to listen to reason and make hateful decisions based on lies rather than fact or decency.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Why would she have a drink with these mean and evil bitches?

    ReplyDelete
  41. The more she talk about t-ara, the more she uncover the truth about the scandal...


    2. [+215, -35] Well.. T-ara hasn't even acknowledged any of it, nor have they apologized~



    Maybe u live in the cave..T-ara apologize for countless time already.... You just want to hate on them...

    ReplyDelete
  42. Because obviously she doesn't have a problem with them any more. It's only hateful netizens that have an issue with T-ara, not Hwayoung or any other celebrities.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hi! Still pressed?

    ReplyDelete
  44. The way people are turning on Hwayoung now just shows how hateful and fickle netizens truly are. They went after T-ara with no proof and ruined the group, and now that they've done all they can do to T-ara they've turned on Hwayoung.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm sure many parents make their their kids work till the faint or get injured, and then refuse to give them time to rest, and let them sleep 2-3 hours a day and then call them lazy to the public. Don't all parents do that?

    ReplyDelete
  46. her answers are so robotic. i bet she is being told what to say

    ReplyDelete
  47. So basically the logic here is that if netizens create CLEARLY fake evidence, like taking random photos and whatnot completely out of context to show that T-ara 'bullied' Hwayoung, it's treated as fact and everybody believes it, but if Hwayoung, who was actually involved in all of this, says anything nice about T-ara and doesn't hold any ill will towards them, it's treated like "Oh, she HAS to say that."


    Basically people will hate T-ara no matter what. They made up their minds and that's that.


    It's hilarious that Hwayoung doesn't have a problem with T-ara when she was supposedly the one that was bullied, yet all the netizens do. LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  48. yes they did apologize for countless times already (press conference, the beatles code 2), geez some knetz needs to stop showing their stupidity and immorality

    ReplyDelete
  49. I have nothing against Hwayoung, but if I were her, I would refuse to talk about T-ara on every interview I had and the conversations with T-ara will be in private.

  50. Best parenting ever

  51. I think all idols are aware of the questions before the interviews, so she could have easily said that she won't talk on that matter, or her company could do that as well. It's not like she was caught on surprise? If she wants to make something out of herself, she or her company needs to focus on her future activities to promote, and not the incident that is not confirmed to be true.

    ReplyDelete
  52. stop the media play... I'm not even interested anymore about this hwayoung-tara thingy

    ReplyDelete
  53. you don't really know if she has problem with them or not since she's constantly putting them in a good light for her own and t-ara's sake. do you think netizens would sit still if she suddenly told them they're bad people? i'm sure she's trying to create peace between her and her former company and group.

    ReplyDelete
  54. leave this page then! lol

    ReplyDelete
  55. Liar. In the first days when she left Tara she said she kept in contact and they meet.

    ReplyDelete
  56. finally the netizens are coming around. i don't love tara but after seeing how persistent they've remained through everything, i want to see them return to their formal status. :) hwaiting.

  57. "[+13, -4] She's only popular because of the black and white logic that since T-ara is bad, Hwayoung must be good."

    this

    ReplyDelete
  58. Now that she has a mgt co, shouldn't they outline what reporter can & cannot ask? They should make her stop answering question related to T-ara & focus on her future...idk..plans? movie? drama? variety?
    Now that Hwayoung serve her purpose as a pawn, netizens would start hating her over tiniest mistake.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I think that cxm is gaining a lot out of this lol. whwn hwa talks about t-ara they gain attention. if it wasnt good for t-ara ccm would have told wellmade to stop. I dont think hwa feels like talking about it anymore either

    ReplyDelete
  60. it's her new company (Wellmade StarM) allowed her or maybe want her to be interviewed about T-ara so that she will get some cheap publicity and some articles about her. Her company could have avoid any T-ara related if they want to, but it's sad how people only cared about her because she used to be part of the group.. so that's why Wellmade StarM is using T-ara for her to get attention.

    ReplyDelete
  61. It's clear you do just by commenting

    ReplyDelete
  62. Whatever the intention behind her statements is, all we can go by is what we have in front of us, and not what we speculate or imagine in our minds.


    Maybe T-ara did do something bad, but we can't vilify a group on suspicion.


    It's similar to the Woody Allen case going on right now. He was already investigated on these charges and found not guilty, and the investigator said that Dylan Farrow couldn't properly tell the difference between fantasy and reality, but now all of a sudden everyone is labelling Woody Allen a paedophile without any real proof. We shouldn't witch hunt and tear down these celebrities unless we have some real evidence. Too much gossiping and speculating happens and it hurts a lot of people.

    ReplyDelete
  63. And now that they're bored they will use T-ara to hate hwayoung...
    7. [+13, -4] She's only popular because of the black and white logic that since T-ara is bad, Hwayoung must be good.
    And aince hwayoung is bad T-ara must be good -.- shit logic

    ReplyDelete
  64. hwa and her company could have avoid being interviewed about t-ara if they want to, this is probably just media play by her company for people to knew that she's still alive and used to be part of the group.

    ReplyDelete
  65. That's how KKS did it, I remember T-ara saying in an interview that they only found out about who the new leader was (because of leader rotations) from the internet not from the CEO himself....

    ReplyDelete
  66. 4. [+34, -23] You can knock it off now... I felt bad for you at first but you're overstepping lines now.

    This pretty much.

    ReplyDelete
  67. wow. people are so naive, why do you think that hwayoung would honestly like
    to say t-ara's all b*** and seems like she's forced to say nice things
    about them? can we just assume based on EVIDENCES not based on our LIMITED perception? hwayoung said "I don't think our group had
    especially bad relationships or anything,
    just the same conflicts anyone else would face while working in society." this. does she mean it's bullying? no. it's a general conflict where everyone would face in society. "I made mistakes and so did the unnis. It's difficult to say who made
    the bigger mistake. Our conflict arose out of misunderstanding" and this, hwayoung said that their fight arose misunderstanding, why? 1. because the stupid antis who made a cheap-made-all-cut-from-contexts video, 2. how KKS handle the situation 3. how netizens always made assumption and pretend to be blind when both party have stated themselves it's a misunderstanding

    ReplyDelete
  68. T-ara also know about hwayoung kicked from article in internet.

    ReplyDelete
  69. what interview was that?

    ReplyDelete
  70. Maybe they needed to kick her out of the group but shouldn't she have found out first before the internet... isn't that basic manners? I'm so confused about how it went down because it seems so disorganised and unprofessional.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I feel like this may be the reason all these problems have arisen. The lacking communication skills of the management is appalling. As if not discuss changes happening within the group with the members before it's posted on the internet? Essentially it's the members lives you're dealing with and they need to prepare themselves for the future whether someone's getting kicked out or there's a new leader. It just seems really unprofessional of them.

    ReplyDelete
  72. This

    Idk why people take these comments seriously... I mean, it's fun reading them but I'll never ever take them seriously. Plus, noone in South Korea cares about these articles posted here on NB (no disrespect to NB ofc)

    ReplyDelete
  73. If anything, she won't be saying anything until Kim Kwang Soo dies of old age, and the same applies to just about any T-ara member.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Off topic but dear NB,


    Please do a translation of last week's Appa Odiga episode reviews especially in regards to Sung Bin! I've been refreshing the site every few hours in the hopes of being able to read it ww


    Sincerely,
    An Appa Odiga fan ><

    ReplyDelete
  75. This almost looks like a combination of being honest and kissing up ass simultaneously.


    By this point, people should already acknowledge that Hwayoung isn't really going to say anything explicit in detail for a long time. Like those who preceded before her, Nam Gyuri from SeeYa and Soomi from 5dolls certainly haven't said anything when they got the boot from KKS unjustly, so it's obvious that Hwayoung won't be any different. Given the clout he has in the industry, it's wishful thinking anyone who got on the bad side of him will spill over anything publicly - unless he's a dead man, of course.


    Lastly, people ought to be more careful of what idols (or any celebrity for that matter) say to the press. Take it with a grain of salt.




    "He's like a father to me and took care of me well. I hope to see him again."


    Utter horseshit. Considering that Kim Kwangsoo never really did anything even mildly significant for Hwayoung's career to begin with, even a cray-cray loony in a high security mental asylum wouldn't believe it.

    ReplyDelete
  76. 'Maybe' did do something bad? What?


    N4 in their show in Beatles confirmed that T-ara indeed has done its share of mistakes. Whatever the reason, you don't go around airing your dirty laundry in SNS.


    And even then, Hyomin herself had done something bad - specifically, outright lying about her own iljin past.

    not a fan of hwayoung and t-ara but they get attention with the same news, same rumour for almost years.. i'm not leasing tantrum to hwayoung but journalist please stop making this old news pops again and start search some news that worth to read today instead..

  80. She's got a long, long time to make a career.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I read the interview and at every single sentence my brain just kept repeating ''pretending, pretending, pretending''
    Her words are so obviously lies.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Oh you're here. What a surprise. So I guess mummy paid the internet bill on time? Does she bring your dinner down to the basement so you can eat and stink up NB at the same time?


    Newsflash but every K-pop idol says they aren't good or make mistakes.


    "I know I am lacking in so many areas but I will try my best to show a better side of myself."


    "I've made many mistakes but I'm working hard to show you all a so-and-so with a better attitude."


    Etc etc. And yeah, T-ara probably did make mistakes, but mistakes doesn't automatically equal bullying.


    And sorry to break it to you, but the iljin behaviour that Hyomin supposedly took part in is pretty common for teenagers. I know it's hard for you to believe that there are teenagers that would take off their clothes and dance sexy and smoke a cigarette because you were a loser in school with no friends who couldn't get laid if your life depended on it, but this is what goes on in the real world. And I hardly think that silly teenage things someone does when they're 15-years-old should still be held against them when they're in their mid-twenties.


    I did a lot of stuff as a teenager that I now regret. People grow up and change. (Except you, who seems destined to remain a basement dwelling mama's boy for all eternity.)

  83. SungBin is really adorable! While her outgoing, fearless personality would be enough to tune into Appa, Sung Dongil's reaction to his daughter's actions is just icing on a cake. While his time with Jun on the show was incredibly moving because there was so much healing that took place, his flustered reaction with SungBin is so much better in the sense that we get to see Sung Dongil flustered and speechless over and over again. As a long time veteran in the industry, he's perfected the poker face and nothing seems to take him by surprise but I feel SungBin unmasks all that until he's nothing more than a father just trying to make sure his daughter doesn't get hurt in the world. It's so heartwarming.

  84. Though i want all these journalists stop taunting her with t-ara questions,i know its impossible. She's only gt famous because of those bully scandal.she's not an awesome singer rapper or dancer to begin with. No offence just stating the truth..

    ReplyDelete
  85. Probably some plot KKS put together, hoping that she screws up an interview someday, allowing T-ara to gain their reputation back.

    ReplyDelete
  86. But should she be free from all blame? The more she talks, the more the netizens get riled up against Tara - who have it hard anyways without all these reminders of the incident. You don't think she knows that? I won't go as far as to say she's doing this on purpose to get revenge on Tara but it's definitely obvious her that her COMPANY is trying to get her to play the victim for as long as she can. My dislike of her stems from that. How long is she planning to play the victim and feed off of the pity that she's receiving from Tara haters - perhaps a testimony to her inability to gain fans any other way.


    The situation is very similar to Jay's case with 2PM. Both groups are able to coexist in the industry today because both groups shut their mouth and neither group started to engage in a battle for their fans. After Jay's incident blew up, 2PM + Jay both went on hiatus and when they came back, they tastefully refused to answer any questions regarding the other party. Jay (and 2PM members) always said no comment instead of delivering an half ass response like "I'd like to grab a drink with the 2PM members one day if possible." Eventually, the reporters stopped asking since neither party was talking. Jay made his comeback as a solo and fans were left to decide if they were going to remain a Hottest, become a Jaywalker, or *gasp* support both parties like a sane fan -.-;;;

Saying someone is a loser bc they can't get laid or smoke just shows what kind of person you are ...you can't get your point out there without saying all this mean shit to people... you're as bad as the people talking shit about t-ara without knowing the truth

    dont u guys seen when t-ara start promoting after controversy, they being asked about this and cry like hell during broadcast interview? LOL. i think she tried her best to cover all this shit. which she admitted she did mistake and t-ara as well.

  90. i really regret defending hwayoung when she first joined. everyone
    called her a worthless addition, ugly, and the other members were better
    in any category, but it was my duty to defend our new maknae. in turn,
    she uses t-ara as a stepping stone, in order to boost her career, when
    she is a nobody without them.

    one thing is for sure, t-ara did so much more for hwayoung then she ever did for t-ara, and that is really an understatement.

  92. Nah, Black Plague is a loser because he's a grown ass man with no real job and no life that sits at home living off his parents and hanging out in Netizenbuzz to get validation for his petty thoughts and musings from random SEA teenagers online.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Y'know, for a 26-year old, I've got to hand it to you - you don't really seem very mature for one, considering you're already resorting to petty personal insults that have not a single bit of evidence to prove what you claim there.


    Secondly, I'll take great offense to the iljin paragraph. You've obviously never met or known an iljin before, yet alone have even attended a Korean public school, especially those 'ghetto' ones, nor have even lived in Korea, so again, very baseless accusations. In fact, that's some very sweeping generalization you have there of Korea's youth, and a very, very inaccurate one at that.


    Thirdly, I'll be finally heading off to the Army in early 2015 (hats off to the NZ Ministry of Defense!), so it's only about 11-12 months away till you won't see me around. ;)

  94. Yea, then do please why I had not commented on this site for the last 2 weeks.

  95. CCM said HY was the troubled one not T-ara so they never apologized for bullying her.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Oh how I wish T-ara can pack up and leave CCM for good. That fucking company doesn't deserve any of their artists, ugh fuck off KKS please.


    The only (real) thing Knets can blame T-ara for is the Twitter fiasco. I understand these hateful Knets are probably just sick of their own bullies but they're inappropriately putting all that hatred on T-ara.


    These journalists need to find better Qs too.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I think you should then switch your dislike of her to her company then. They're two separate entities.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Exactly why I cannot side with T-ara's fandom at times. The 'black-and-white' mindset between them and antis is probably the most extreme of currently active K-pop idol groups.


    Just gotta grab the popcorn and let them dish it out upon each other :D

Our friends ask what you're doing with your life and we have to lie because we're so ashamed that our son is a jobless bum who can't even chip in for the internet bill. We've signed you up for the army -- if you don't go we're kicking you out."

    ReplyDelete
  101. 6. [+22, -4] I don't know what the rest of you expect her to say when
    journalists ask her about T-ara. "They're all b*tches and I want to kill
    every single one of them!" As if she'd ever say that. She's going to
    speak nicely of them publicly.

    ReplyDelete
  102. something wrong about speak nicely of them? i think it's kks who kicked hwayoung, not t-ara, so i dont see anything wrong about hwayoung wanting to have drinks with her unnies

    ReplyDelete
  103. OK hwayoung, you can stfu now, we get the idea.
    it would be easy for both her and her company/pr to avoid questions about t-ara but without it, I guess no one gives a shit about her rn.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Before asking hwayoung to shut up, tell it to the journalist. Like hello read again, she was INTERVIEWED. What the hell dyou expect her to answer???

    ReplyDelete
  105. What's wrong going to the Army? :) (and thank you, my parents actually oppose my choice of professional military service in the NZ Army)


    It's a long-term stable job, pay is decent, it can fund your education, a good starting career for those aspiring to join the police force or private security/military, keeps you fit, traveling to other countries and experiencing different cultures, all the while learning how to shoot and blow things up (for combat roles anyway), saving lives in danger and skills that can be of huge value in the civilian world.


    What's there not to dislike? Sure it ain't for everyone, but for some people like myself, it's a very alluring and much better choice compared to being a part-time student job at a toy store or studying for a degree that is of little to no value in the job market and paying back loan debts.

    ReplyDelete
  106. not hating on hwayoung but this interview was set up and her company allowed her to be interviewed when they could have avoid being interviewed anything t-ara related. people are raging because her company is using t-ara for her cheap publicity.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Erm..I dont want to say this but even i'm not hardcore queen but I follow all t-ara's twitter account. I still remember what happens almost 2 years ago. 4members tweet something about hwayoung. During that time, i can see something bad gonna be happens because thats is not a positive tweet. And after a few hours, that tweet became a hot news on k-website. All members except qri (she never tweet anything) deleted their own tweet. Kks start to give their explaination. And start from that time, the situation become worst.

    ReplyDelete
  108. she could stop talking about it like really ..just do anything that IS NOT RELATED TO T-ARA

    ReplyDelete
  109. YOU SHOULD REALLY CHECK THEM OUT .....THEY ARE REALLY AMAZING

    ReplyDelete
  110. LOLLL T-ARA TO GET ATTENTION ....this is funny ....because even a picture of Qri (the least popular member) taking a selca would be on the first page......T-ara guesting on Immortal song 2 increased the ratings by 2% (that's pretty much really biiiig)...they don't need her for attention ..it's the other way around....hwaoung without being labeled as T-ara's ex-member has 0 value

    ReplyDelete
  111. Haha. It's nice to see a loyal fan. I know Tara and most of their songs (well all the ones they promoted). How could I not after all the years I've been into Kpop. But I'm a casual listener. I'm more into earlier GG and now Apink style though there were times were I definitely had Lovely Dovey and Sexy Love on repeats for days. :)

    ReplyDelete
  112. :)


    I dislike the image of her which is set forth by the company - and it's the only one I know. I don't know her or WellMade (?) enough to differentiate the two. I don't hate her to the point where I feel the need to write hate comments on all her interviews so I guess I don't feel bad grouping the two together... I'd just wish both would get their act together and focus on producing quality songs or dramas rather than give pointless interviews repeatedly.

    ReplyDelete
  113. whatever it is,the rumors is now the past,bring up the rumors won't bring anything good for both sides.Btw,KKS is not ceo of CCM anymore........

  114. kpop idols are honest,so they won't avoid any kind of questions even it's bringing bad to others people.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I didnt say t-ara doesnt get attention without her saying anything...? I'm just saying that CCM is using this just as much and wouldnt let wellmade give hwayoung interviews like this if it didnt benefit them. just like how t-ara was in the search today because of this interview. and just cause you think hwayoung has 0 value, doesnt mean others do. that is your peronal opinion.

  118. from what i read, the tweets are not really indicate bullying, i admit that bringing it to the public altogether is negative, but the tweet itself has a positive point, and it's not like t-ara wanted to tweet them in the first place if there's no problem that hwayoung has caused. and t-ara had said it themselves, they didn't know kks would handle the situation to that extent. what more is that kks always making a statement wihout t-ara's concern, or even the opposite which make the public angrier

    ReplyDelete
  125. Only sensible comment from netizen 6.

    ReplyDelete
  126. The comment says T-ara apologized not CCM. They are not the same entity. T-ara stated that they had gotten into arguments before and there were times when they had fun and times when they fought (just like any other group). What they apologized for was posting their personal business on social media.


    Why would they apologize for bullying if they didn't feel they bullied her? It's kinda like apologizing for hitting someone or stealing just because the public all thinks you did even though you know you didn't.

  127. he finally got off his high horse *claps*

  128. she is probably bored of the questions....hence the robotic answers LOL

  129. Hwayoung would be considered rude to say no to these reporters looking to earn dough....or otherwise just tell the reporters:just keep guessing

    ReplyDelete
  130. Well,They got bored of them and started bashing Kara lol

    ReplyDelete
  131. I think this is hard for her to talk about.And people should stop asking her about what happened.

    ReplyDelete
  132. You know, every groups have their own problems including 'relationship' between members,. BUT each members need to solve this problems using their brain. I dont want to say this but if you read some comment from netizen via naver, T-ara tweet during that time looks like they want to tell all peoples around the world a negative things about hwayoung but at the end, you can see now..

    ReplyDelete
  133. "random SEA teenagers online." oh

    ReplyDelete
  134. The bullying claims were made by netizens... Hwayoung herself said that she wasn't bullied but netizens will think whatever they want.

    I was more upset that their hatred wasn't directed at Kim Kwang Soo, who is really the root of all the problems that happen within that company. The system he created for T-ara is insane to begin with, and made worse by randomly adding in new members whenever he feels like it without taking into consideration how the existing members might feel.

    ReplyDelete
  135. 1. [+226, -15] I don't think it will be good for her to continue talking about T-ara....... The journalists should stop asking her about T-ara~ Every article about Hwayoung is always about T-ara...



    Well what will they ask about then, that's thereason she's famous. I guess her company could ask journalists to refrain from asking T-ara related questions but then again that's probably the sole reason they bother interviewing her at all.

    ReplyDelete
  136. i hope when you're making a guess, be sure not to hurt the other party that's clearly uninvolved. i know you care about hwayoung, but no need to bring t-ara down in it

    ReplyDelete
  137. let the girl live her present will you media.. why dwell in past

  138. how was that bringing down t-ara????

  139. Netizens will never stop won't they?

    ReplyDelete
  140. Yes, I hope they can learn something. I really love t-ara during that time even though i'm not hardcore queen. Before all of this happens, i really want t-ara become the top girl group in korea. But, they already make me upset and disappointed until now because of this issue. Past is past. Good luck to T-ara and hwayoung.

    ReplyDelete
  141. It's only obvious that the media will ask her side of it. Give it time and they will stop asking like they did T-ara. Overall I think she answered quite well. Vague but still quite well. Best of luck Hwayoung and at least I hope you can meet them at the top together XD

    ReplyDelete
  142. Omg are ppl THIS dumb and delusional ? Idgaf about Tara or hwayoung cuz its none of my business as long they make good music, but Hwayoung DOESN'T write these fking interviews, the journalists do because whether its hate comments or not, they get ppl to CLICK and comment on them. Plus the interviewers get out with no blame at all on them.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Nah. Those type of parents let you sleep. VERY early. So that it won't interfere with your studies. :))

  144. [+31, -13]Hwayoung-ah, your relationship with them has already reached a point of
    no return. Their happiness is your trial and vice versa... Just stay
    out of their way. Don't think of grabbing a drink with them. You are
    still quite naive.


    wow.No matter how you hate someone,making their happiness your trial is torturing yourself even more.If you hate someone so much because they did something bad to you,just be happy with your life,that's the best revenge you could ever give without caring how their life now.Sometimes life is the best when you don't give a f**k

  148. I remember during the Jay Park controversy, people were calling for him to commit suicide and to leave korea. :( I didn't really keep track with what netizens have been calling T-ara, but I think it's pretty bad. And anyone (famous or not) who associate themselves with T-ara publicly will get hated on, with their social media accounts flooded with hate mails and replies. Sigh, it's really vile what people actually say on the internet hiding behind the mask of anonymity. These people don't even dare to show who they are and only 1 person went for the 'protest' they staged against T-ara. Me, a hottest, actually became a fan of T-ara after I saw how they dealt with the hate and how they continued to put on brave smiles and weathered the storm. Their courage is to be admired! :)

    ReplyDelete
  149. yup. and fyi, t-ara did learn something. you can see it from their interviews. in fact, it made me think how glad i am that this scandal happened. because it has changed them to become a more amazing person. i now not only respect them because of their music, but also because of their personality. they said that this incident had bring back what they had lost. that is their gratefulness toward their family, friends, fans, everyone who always supported them which seem forgotten during their peak moment. before they only do what to do, "schedule is just a schedule". but now, eventhough they stated themselves they're scared to go back on the stage again, they still stood up for all of the people who had been supporting them through good & bad times

    ReplyDelete
  150. I always say that too xD that the best revenge to someone that hurt you or that you hate is to be kind with that person, it's to show that your happy even if you're not!
    I hope journalists stop askibg hwayoung about t-ara!

    Hwayoung fighting ^^

    ReplyDelete
  151. Yay! I actually became their fan after I saw how they continued to perform on stage despite the booing and the silence and how they worked so hard even when the rest of the world (netizens at least) seems so against them. :) However, I wouldn't call this article 'netizens coming around' though! They might not like Hwayoung now, but that doesn't mean they don't hate T-ara. :/

    ReplyDelete
  152. Sigh. T-ara only found out through articles only also! :/

    ReplyDelete
  153. I'm glad there was at least one person that said this. If she actually came out and said she hates t-ara netizens would criticize her for it. She's pretty much damned if she does and damned if she doesn't so taking the high road seems logical and still makes her look innocent lol.

    ReplyDelete
  154. As if someone like hwayoung can just say no. It's her current company's choice, and not hers.

    ReplyDelete
  155. me too! their courage is something. instead of running away they faced it with bare heart eventhough it's painful. they have became more mature and being more grateful toward everything which barely happen during their popular days. and now, rather than wanting to be 1st, they just want to keep standing on stage for those who have always supported them. so i feel like, this incident made the quality of t-ara as a group has leveled up. and this incident clearly showed them who really loves them and who's not. so i think t-ara has nothing to lose, instead they gained something more valuable than popularity

    ReplyDelete
  156. i guess since the car accident opened up her schedules she had time for an interview

    ReplyDelete
  157. i just want to slap them really... why some of them criticize her when its an interview!!! its not like she decided to talk about it fr no reason! and I bet if she refused to talk aboutit,they would be all "oh shes so big of herself blah blah blah" and criticize her and/or T-ara too! we still dont know and would never know what happened but I personally think what she says could be true... there would always be drama at some point with a group of people and if those involved spend 24/7 together working in the conditions idols work, those chance for dramas multiply.

  158. "it to you it might be common, "cool" and okay where you live but it's different in korea ok"


    how do you know that? have you ever been to korea? did u visit a korean school?


    i have korean friends and when i asked them if it's true that smoking, having a bf / gf, fucking people and going to clubs isn't a big thing among teenagers there they just laughed at me. ppl are like that ALL over the world, it's just that koreans aren't as open about it as americans / europeans but they still do it.

  161. May I ask a question? You would probably know? Is it true that she learned of being kicked out of the group by going on the internet? Was there no contract? Is this something I can look up? I'm just curious how she can be just kicked out without some kind of behavioral cause. Next even if she was isn't it rather unprofessional of her company to be allowing this to happen if it wasn't intentional? If it was intentional then that puzzles me too. Why would a management company break up with someone in this manner? It could backfire on them, make them look bad instead of her. Help me to understand this situation please.

    ReplyDelete

  163. It was indirect bullying... you just need commons sense to understand it.

  164. we don't know if it's her choice or not or maybe just her current company forced her to, but it's still sad how people will only recognize her because of that group right now. this kind of publicity for hwa is making her and her current company looks bad and they should stop

  170. What I don't get is why Wellmade is sending Hwayoung out to do so many interviews when she has absolutely nothing going on right now? Like what else is she going to talk about when she has no jobs, no projects lined up, etc. Wellmade knows what they're doing and they know exactly what these interviews are going to be about. It's too bad Hwayoung will have to bore the brunt of the blame, but that's just the way it is, I guess!

  171. they got like a week off for lunar new year :P

  176. that 10% number.... I know where it came from: year end surveys done in early January. The results are in, but they cannot publish articles on it yet, because the report is for paying eyes only. (I have seen part of it.) When it comes out, it will make one big fandom cry.

    ReplyDelete
  177. Oh, ok I get it. I wasn't sure because I don't really care about/pay attention to sales. I never really knew what Idols profited from the most (I always thought it was just physical sales/CFs).


    Then I agree with you. Idols really need to take a back seat in order for other genres to get a chance to thrive.

    This 100%! Like despite w/e happened in the past, Hwayoung is being very mature about the situation regardless. She's learned to put the problems behind her and move on. She may be a bit naive given her age; however, she seems to have a good head on her shoulders by putting what's happened in the past and moving forward after all there's no reason to hold onto unhealthy grudges for eternity.

    In all of the groups there are more than 50 percent fangirls (I'm a Dai5y and a 4Nia)
    And you can't tell who's fandom is more mature, only generalize


    It's boy groups -> almost all fangirls
    Girl groups -> more than half fangirls


    Dai5ys are the fans of Girl's Day not of a rising girl group

  189. Downloading, buying a song is no problem for them to do everyday

    It doesn't work like this. A fan can bulk buy physical albums all they want. But digital download sites only allow one download of each song per account, which is linked to their social security number. And buying a song on a Korean site is about the same cost as to download a song on an American site.

    ReplyDelete
  190. . [+854, -127] SM, don't you think this is too much? At least Korean fans saw them promote as a group a lot so we're grateful and all but the Chinese fans have barely seen them at all. They went to China a few times to sing Miracles of December but barely enough to count on one hand! I thought EXO would finally focus on their Chinese promotions now so what's up with this random Japanese schedule ㅋㅋㅋ Japanese fans have a lot of money so they'll go see them wherever they are, it's not necessary to send EXO over to Japan ㅋㅋㅋ Either way, do well EXO!

    SM's point is to make money, I don't know why people think being an idol is a charity.
