Since T-ARA's bullying scandal, fans are wondering about other girl groups. 

Recently on an online forum a post titled "The Wonder Girls' Attitude Towards New Member Hyelim" was seen along with several photos.

In the photos is seen the old Wonder Girls members posing with their newest member Hyelim.

However, when Hyelim joined the group after member Sunmi withdrew, there were rumors that she had her own case of bullying, as well. "Hyelim Bullied" did not last as long and was not as serious an issue as the recent "T-ARA scandal."

Though there were videos proving the issue of Hyelim being bullied, none of the photos showed any of the members intentionally harming her. Hyelim's bullying was considered a slight bump in the road where a new member just needed some time to adjust.

Fans who noticed that the Wonder Girls' issue was nothing in comparison to T-ARA's took a stand to support them.

It's inevitable for such young girls to all live under one roof and not experience division and jealousy.

For young girls to experience is normal and very human.

It is the agency's responsibility to work with the members' immaturity and ambitions.

The agencies must not just try to train a "singer" in order to make money off of them but to really work to build them up in all aspects in order to make them true "stars."

Contrarily, agencies try to rile up the competition amongst members in order to have them challenge each other. This kind of manipulation is not beneficial to the group but more poisonous. 

Showing a pretty face and a personality fit for entertainment is one thing, and may do well in the short run, but, the problem lies in making true musicians. This scandal and its consequences should serve as a reminding for all agencies in realigning their goals.
