Well, as some of you may have heard, some serious business is going on between T-ara members (except if CCM is trolling in a masochistic way) and many people have come to the conclusion that the members of T-ara (excluding Qri and the two new additions) have been ganging up and bullying Hwa Young. This all came to light after the girls sent various Twitter messages assumed to be thrown in Hwa Young’s direction, with her twin-sister and rapping coach then coming to her defense. The tweets I’m talking about are:
Hyomin had began by writing, “The differences in levels of determination^^, Let us all have more determination. Fighting!!!”
Member Jiyeon then resonded, “The differences in levels of determination ^^, Always be humble ^^ and sensible ^^ I applaud you, acting genius ^^”
Eunjung 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.”
In response to this, Hwayoung had tweeted, “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?”
Member Hyoyoung of 5dolls who also happens to be Hwayoung’s twin sister then wrote, “My better half is suffering. My heart hurts. No matter what anyone else says, (Hwayoung), you can get through this,” and Hwayoung responded to her saying, “You’re the best.”
After that swarm of messages, Hwa Young left another suspicious tweet that piqued netizens’ attention:
“The support of my family and my fans is worth so much to me. Please watch over me.”
Then CCM (T-ara’s agency) came forward and stated that the girls’ accounts had been hacked simultaneously, which sounded pretty ridiculous and lame (except if this hacker has been watching the awesome k-drama Ghost, then I’ll accept that excuse) but then decided to further confuse the public by saying that on July 30th KST, Kim Kwang Soo (the CEO) will make a huge announcement regarding T-ara. If this were any other agency, I would have been a little excited but with CCM’s reputation I’m scared what’s going to happen to the group, though, I do have a small prediction.
Finally, member Hyomin uploaded a picture on her Twitter that was half cut off but with their amazing detective skills, netizens were able to find out the real picture in no time.
The full picture shows a turtle walking on arid soil with the large caption: “There’s a reason for everything.”
This whole issue is kind of scary because we can clearly see that it’s not all rainbows and unicorns when you’re in the spotlight. And what they say on camera and how they act is almost never who they truly are, but then again, I am surprised these girls are still allowed to use Twitter and continuing to add salt to the wound.
My final thought on this is that the announcement will be about someone leaving the group, with Hwa Young being the main suspect. The picture on her Twitter account with her holding her sister’s hand and her tweets in general seem to push me further into thinking that. Also, I found something on tumblr that confirms that. Though, I am not sure if it is legit, it’s all I have until the announcement tomorrow.
“After personal deliberation and careful reflection, Hwayoung has decided to continue her career at Cube Entertainment and find new challenges and opportunities beyond her valuable time with T-ARA and CCM. Hwayoung’s roles in the various songs will now be performed by Lee Areum. We wish Hwayoung the best.”
Honestly, if Hwa Young gets transferred to Cube, I won’t lie that I will be happy for her. Though Cube is not one of the big 3, it seems to me that they treat their artists much better than CCM does and if she’s happy there, then I wish her all the best. However, I can’t be sure yet until the official announcement tomorrow.
For now, I really hope Hwa Young is ok and if these girls really are bullying her, then shame on them. Bullying is traumatizing and, as a victim, I can say that it’s very painful to be alone and laughed at, while still trying to force a smile. If all of this is true, I sure hope they get some type of punishment but I doubt it would happen. I don’t know, what do you guys think?
