T-ARA Soyeon is the first out of the members to talk about the bullying rumors against Hwayoung. Her response to this has gained much attention from fans.

Today, with an interview with Josun Ilbo, she stated, "I have seen the pictures the fans have put up as 'evidence' of the bullying rumors. Someone could actually think that it's true by just looking at these pictures. It is true that we were a bit disappointed in her from the Tokyo concert. She kept saying that her leg hurt and she was at the beauty shop while we were practicing."

Soyeon continued, "After the concert, we asked the CEO to 'take care of this matter' and after that there were a series of incidents. We didn't know that this would end with Hwayoung being terminated from the group. We found out the news through an article. We were very disappointed with our company. We only asked them to help us solve our little conflict. Dismissing her from the group would but the blame on us. The CEO told us that this was the best for Hwayoung. We were all in much pain."

When asked about Hwayoung's bullying rumors, she replied, "We are a group of 7-8 girls in their late teens and twenties. We all want to be the center of attention popular. There is always going to be conflict going on. We fight and make up every day. The conflict with Hwayoung was similar. If you say that our relationship is bad because of it, then all of us would be having bad relationships wit one another then."

With this response from Soyeon, many fans and internet users were furious rather than understanding.

On various portal sites such as 'T-JinYo' and other fan cafes, comments such as, "Hwayoung was right, they are all 'truth without facts'", "They have no sense of humbleness or reflection on their actions" and "They make it look like T-ARA members are the victims. They need to take some time to think about what they have done."

Other comments were seen such as, "It's Kim Kwang Soo's fault, not Soyeon's. Just because they fought a little he kicks out a member" and "I wish the agency would clarify the situation more for the public."
