With regards to the controversy, the CEO Kim Kwang Soo was always the one who spoke to it and none of the members had ever been directly asked or directly responded to the accusations or claims.
Soyeon didn't attend the press conference for her drama "Haeundae Lovers" and Hyomin, who attended the conference for her sitcom "The Thousandth Man" she teared up and asked that the reporters only ask questions about the drama because the occasion is supposed to be happy and she didn't want to disrespect the amount of work the cast and crew are putting into the drama.
So it's natural that people are wondering if Eunjung will take the same route and not answer these questions directly. Unlike the other members, Eunjung is the only one who has a lead in the drama that they're promoting and because of the controversy, many viewers refuse to watch anything with T-ARA members in it, which is damaging the projects. Consequently, people expect that she will only express opinions about the drama, rather than answer anything about the controversy. Her vague answers will probably only fuel the anti-T-RAR sentiments.
Soyeon, who was the first to appear on television after the incident, is still the target for much of the criticism and terrible reviews and comments. The ratings for the drama "Haeundae Lovers" is also suffering as a result. Though "The Thousandth Man" and "Five Fingers" have not premiered yet, the situation will most likely be the same. Each show's homepage is being bombarded with protesting comments and if Eunjung does not do much to appease the situation, the response from the viewers will probably continue.
So it seems that the aftermath of the T-ARA controversy still isn't over. So will Eunjung be able to cleanly end the talk? The audience is out for blood and will not be satisfied with anything less than tears and the truth from the mouth of the T-ARA member herself.
