By Staff Writer | August 06, 2012 09:47 AM EDT
In the recent episode of 'Brave Brothers' on KBS "Gag Concert," Shin Bora targeted idol groups and their behaviors. Although the topic was targeted towards all idol groups, it was mainly about the two most recent issues, 2PM Nichkhun's drunk driving incident and the T-ARA crisis.

She started off by saying, "Idol groups, listen carefully. With fame comes responsibility. You must always remember that."
She continued, "Children follow your fashion and your songs. They will also follow your mistakes. Remember, 'idols' are children's 'idols'."
Internet users commented, "Shin Bora is right, children do follow what idol groups do" and "She is right. T-ARA's biggest problem is the schools. Their actions may reflect on children in school."
The 'T-ARA crisis' began with suspicious tweets online that caused the public to believe that member Hwayoung was being bullied.
2PM Nichkhun was caught with a DUI and crashing into a motorcycle on July 24.
