Kim Kwang Soo commented, "The reason we announced Hwayoung's withdrawal is because of her denial to appear on a live performance stage and her rash behavior towards the staff members. I also hope that through this decision Hwayoung will become a better singer."
Even though he posted the announcement of Hwayoung's withdrawal, he also commented, "Hwayoung has a lot of potential as a rapper and that is why she was released from her contract without any special conditions. She is now a free singer who can join a better place and grow as a singer."
He also added, "This decision has nothing to do with the bullying rumors. It is because of the ridiculous number of fake and misrepresented news that have suddenly been published in the news that have made this issue bigger. These fake rumors and articles are also hurting Hwayoung and her image so please stop posting things that are not true."
CEO Kim Kwang Soo also met up with Hwayoung's parents, "I have met with Hwayoung's parents and they have understood as to why this decision was made. T-ARA and Hwayoung both wished each other good luck and the case was closed, but because of the media, this issue does not seem to be dying down."
