This issue has become bigger than imagined. CEO Kim Kwang Soo related news articles received over a thousand replies. On the other hand, Hwayoung posted a short and strong statement on her twitter that read, "Facts that aren't true," in regards to the many articles about CEO Kim Kwang Soo.
Hwayoung's twitter post was her only response to this issue. However, many people have posted 'evidence' and T-ARA has been withdrawn from their modeling ad. Fans have also canceled their concert reservations and an anti-fan cafe called 'T-JinYo' has been formed.
Core Contents Media did not save their words. Instead, they spoke out their thoughts and opinions. They talked about Hwayoung's unexpected behaviors during performances as well. They also talked about how Hwayoung suddenly decided to not to perform on stage, making Hyomin and Eunjung quickly rehearse her parts so that they could cover the performance without her.
CEO Kim Kwang Soo also expressed his thoughts on his twitter, "Hwayoung has made our company's image look bad. This is another reason for her withdrawal. If she understands her mistakes and apologizes, we may look into bringing her back into the group."
Core Contents Media is currently taking legal action on all news that have been misrepresented or not been proven true.
