We think it will be hard to have T-ARA continue and be the models for our brand." They also stated that they will begin removing posters and after their contract ends this August, they will not be resigning with T-ARA.

Also, fans have demanded that Hyomin, Eunjung and Soyeon's new drama roles be canceled. Eunjung's new drama that will air in November has received 4,500 posts on the drama's official website for Eunjung to drop the role. Hyomin and Soyeon's drama have received the same response through twitter and other social media networks.
Many fans felt betrayed and began making anti-fan cafes. On one community board, a post with the title, "We demand T-ARA to break up" was seen as well as the online group 'T-JinYo' which demands for T-ARA to tell the truth. In just one day, 72,000 people registered for this anti-fan cafe.
T-ARA's agency CEO Kim Kwang Soo stated, "Hwayoung was withdrawn from the group due to her rash behavior and the opinion's of the staff members."
