Idols are Humans Too, We Learn Through from Mistakes

With T-ARA's issue being all the rage these days, many people's perspective on the music industry has changed. It is only between the music industry or officials that they talk about 'Group A has been bullying one of their members' or 'Group B is on the verge of disbanding'. It is these stories that shock the fans that support them. To the fans, this is betrayal, because they had believed that their favorite band was not fake or mean.

What are the real relationships between idol group members? T-ARA's agency, Core Contents Media CEO Kim Kwang Soo had stated that Hwayoung's dismissal was not because of bullying or problems with the group, but rather Hwayoung's own rash behavior. However, many are not convinced with his statement as internet users are finding pieces of evidence that could prove that this is in fact a bullying problem.
One official stated, "Before they are singers or stars, they are humans. It's obvious that they are going to fight and bicker. It's natural for other members to be jealous if one member is doing better than the other members of the group."
The official continued, "However, even after they fight, they work thing out. Most of these members have been together since trainee days and look after each other as if the were family."
A different official stated, "It could also be because they are still very young and have not been able to properly learn the ways of cooperating together as a group. However, we all fight to grow and mature, it's a way of life."
