The members of T-ara have been swept into controversy regarding their teamwork and relationship between members. The girls recently held their first independent concert in Budokan, becoming the first female Korean artist to do so. The concert was very successful, but member Hwayoung was unfortunately not able to participate to her fullest as she injured her leg from a music program.
Hwayoung was on stage either in crutches or sitting down and fans encouraged her with claps and cheers throughout the night. However, some of the T-ara members later tweeted some criticism on July 25th, angering many fans. Hyomin first wrote, “The differences in levels of determination^^, Let us all have more determination. Fighting!!!” followed by Jiyeon tweeting, “The differences in levels of determination ^^, Always be humble ^^ and sensible ^^ I applaud you, acting genius ^^”
Eunjung further added, “A position can make or break a person, but determination can make a person too. Sigh, it’s unfortunate. You have to know to take care of the people around you.” Soyeon also tweeted, “It’s a difference in dedication + manners + selflessness. Let’s be strong again today” which she later deleted.
Boram also said in response to Jiyeon’s tweet, “Clapping… clapclapclap!!” She has since deleted the tweet and also unfollowed Hwayoung.
Hwayoung stepped forward and responded to everything, saying, “Sometimes, even determination alone is not enough. At times like these, I feel upset but I trust that it’s a blessing in disguise from the heavens. God, you know everything right?”
Hwayoung’s twin sister Hyoyoung of 5dolls even came in and added, “My better half is suffering. My heart hurts. No matter what anyone else says, (Hwayoung), you can get through this” and also said “What if your face is pretty, your heart should be pretty. Is a sick person not a person? Ah it hurts me too, I want to cry. I better just go practice.”
Their agency has stated that T-ara’s accounts were hacked, but that’s highly not the case as many Twitter accounts would have had to been hacked at the same time. If these are indeed meant for Hwayoung just because she couldn’t perform due to an injury, then there’s a serious problem. It’s definitely not acceptable to bash a fellow member like that.
Plus, Boram unfollowing Hwayoung? You know that a storm is coming up ahead from T-ara.
What are your thoughts about this issue?
