By Staff Writer | August 02, 2012 09:42 PM EDT
Former member of Jewelry CHo Harang shares her thoughts on the occurrence of bullying.
On August 1st Cho Harang tweeted, "It's not easy for young people to come together and live together. Rarely do they have time for any rest or alone time; they're always pressed to run faster through their schedules. Their lack of experience in society leads them to not make thorough decisions in their relationships. Their sudden bursts in status seems like it'll last forever. Indeed, it changes people."

She continued, "Bringing it up in public itself can be an issue. I remember when I experienced witch hunting when no evidence was even confirmed. It's shocking that such a story is still making the headlines."
Especially significant was when she wrote, "I'm thankful for all your attention but just when I think I can forget it, I'm reminded through the media of my struggles being in a group. Please stop! It's already been nine years. Please get over Cho Min Ah and embrace me as Cho Harang, please."
Cho Harang expressed her discomforts with the mention of her struggles in the group as "Cho Min Ah."
Additionally, on the 30th, she tweeted, "Though present, still invisible. When a day feels like a year and breathing itself makes me anxious. It's an incident that occurs not just in the entertainment industry but also in everyday society: the bullying and the witch hunting. We must uproot it and get it out."
Cho Harang was a member of Jewelry in 2001, and, at present, is a singer and actress.
