Member Soyeon didn't participate in "Haeundae Lovers," and Hyomin teared up at the "One Thousandth Man" interview, asking to only question about the drama. Also, Eunjung didn't answer to any questions not regarding to the topic of the drama at the "Five Fingers" interview.
Hyomin seemed very nervous all along the interview and when she got a question about the rumors, she left the place, crying. Eunjung teared up as well during the event. On top of this, internet users are giving a doubt even when Soyeon was hurt in a car accident. As a reporter, it was upsetting to see them.
The media about T-ARA is getting worse and worse. The representative revealed hand written apology statement and Soyeon tried to tell her side by the interview, but it worsened the situation instead of making it better.
In reality, the conflict between idol members in a group is common, and there are a lot of cases that they over came. KARA can be an example. KARA went through three months of conflict, stating that three of the members will be released from the team on 2011. Also, there were rumors of the leader Gyuri being bullied.
After this, one media raised a question about the bully, and the group was at the verge of disbanding.
Of course KARA didn't give a perfect explanation. The defenders of the three members just repeated that there isn't a conflict instead of giving the real essence of the problem.
However, Gyuri stated her side courageously at the official event afterwards.
Gyuri also said that "there are a lot of things that are hurtful in your life, but I can overcome because of the people who love me. I apologize for anyone who worried for us. I'll do my best to show good sides, and there are no problems in the group."
Gyuri's statement was not completely persuasive to the fans, but it was better than nothing. After that, KARA stepped up both in Japan and Korea. They ranked first in music program in september of 2011 with "Step" and all shared the happiness.
However, T-ARA members are avoiding the issue. No body wants to talk about it. Is this tactic really right? This wouldn't be the right way, looking at the KARA case. The situation gets worse and worse as the members try to avoid it.
Only way for T-ARA to be free is to talk about their stands. What they need is 'words' not 'tears.'
It has been 20 days after the rumor. However, it is not late for them to organize their stands and prove it to the people.
The people might not admit at first, but if the members continuosly shows the sincere side, the rumor will decrease. Hope T-ARA becomes a stronger group after solving the conflict.
