With the 'T-ARA Crisis' still going on, T-ARA members released an official handwritten apology letter understanding their foolish behavior and that they are in deep reflection on their actions. This letter was released today, which is one day after Hwayoung had written on her twitter about this crisis.
T-ARA posted this official apology letter on their official homepage with a post that started with, "We are writing this letter after much thought..." along with a picture of their apology letter.
T-ARA wrote, "This past month felt even longer than the time it took for us to train and debut and receive love from our fans. First, we truly apologize to everyone we disappointed. We admit that it was a very foolish thing to bring out our personal disagreements between members into the public. We are deeply reflecting upon our actions."
They continued, "We truly apologize for our rash behaviors. If we were a bit more mature about the situation and tried to understand each other more, this situation might not have happened. The thought of this puts us through so much pain. We are truly sad that through these minor disagreements we have forgotten that all of us have worked hard together towards the same goal. With this incident, it seems that our good memories have been buried by our quick judgments."
T-ARA members also left a message for Hwayoung, "Hwayoung must have gone through so much pain throughout this whole crisis. We are so sad that because of this incident that we can no longer be together. We hope that there will be no more incidents where Hwayoung gets hurt."
Lastly, T-ARA apologized to the public and their fans once again, "We are again truly sorry for letting our fans down. This incident has been a huge life lesson to us. We have now realized that we are responsible for our actions and that it could reflect a bad image to our younger fans as well."
"We truly ask for forgiveness from our parents, our loving fans and to everyone that we have disappointed. We will work hard in order for everyone to forgive us. We are truly sorry. We also hope that everyone will support and love Hwayoung as well. We will always be rooting for Hwayoung."
Yesterday, Hwayoung wrote on her twitter for the first time in a month saying, "I am sad to hear about Eunjung's removal from her drama. Although our group has had some disagreements, I am sad to see that people have made it worse by making bullying rumors. Our group has been together since the beginning and has many good memories together. I hope that we can all now see each other with smiling faces and I hope that everyone will continue to support T-ARA. We are truly sorry for everyone that we have disappointed."
