This is the best news in recent days... Hopefully they will be given a second chance especially in Korea... After all, the fake rumors or bad things about them are not proven by solid evidence... Even if they made mistakes, they really deserve another chance... They were treated so harshly by the media... I am sure Queens anticipate your come back and will definitely show you more love. T-ara fighting!!!

Lol T-Jinyo is now gonna stage an organized protest outside CCM's building this week - and they even got the police's permission to do so (not that they would have really cared anyway).

Things are brewing up again, folks.

At least CCM's getting what it deserves on them. Boy, oh boy, someone get the popcorn.

[RUMOR VS FACT] T-ara's bullying case: Evident #6

Netizens post this:

Hwayoung is left out

tumblr_m83z30VGgE1qfuhrd.png

tumblr_m83z3y37Nk1qfuhrd.png

The truth is:

Okay, I have to admit that K-netizens really good in manipulating information to ruining people’s life. They’re really smart.

Okay guys, the 1st & 2nd pictures is screencap from a video. Sorry, I can’t find the video (will update if I find it later). Just like they manipulate the screencap in case #5, they also do the same to this post. Here is the press photos T-ara @ Gimpo International Airport on 4th July 2011.

See the difference???

They just capped the video when Hwayoung stay at the back.Smart move, right?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pb1JkY6oWP8&feature=plcp

(watch this fancam!)

After they posing for the camera, they started to move into the departure hall but Hwayoung move first and some members still posing for the camera. That’s why Hwayoung position is changed and she stay in the back!

Okay, now we move on to the 2nd cap. What’s wrong with walking alone??? They’re not a kids that need a parents/adults to hold their hands all the time.

[RUMOR VS FACT] T-ara’s bullying case: Evident #5

Netizen posted this:

tumblr_m83w3p7lqY1qfuhrd.jpg

At the beginning of T-ara’s episode of KBS “Star Life Theater,” all the group members lined up to give an introductory greeting. As all the members pointed at the camera, to signal the start of the show, Hyomin oddly strikes her finger upwards, and accidentally pokes her finger at Hwayoung’s face.

The truth is:

This is the most funny one and just shows how desperate K-netizen to bring T-ara down!

‘Accidentally’!

How can you describe something accidentally as bully? I accidentally hit my friends head, that doesn’t mean I bully my friend. I bet a lot people out there also experience the ‘accidentally’ incident once in their life. Still unsatisfied? Okay, here is the video…

In this video we can see Hyomin turns her head and leaned her head towards Hwayoung as a sign of apologise after this ‘accidentally’ poking/hitting. She also showed the sorry expression but of course haters can’t see that. They just cap the video at certain part to shows that Hyomin hitting Hwayoung and idiots just believe that. The camera still rolling so of course she can’t apologise straight to Hwayoung that time. We never know what happened after the cut. If you notice, at the early of their speech, Hwayoung grab hyomin arm and also follow her silly act + tried to hide behind Hyomin. I think that’s why K-netizens only post the caps of this video as evidence to the public. If they post the whole video,peoples will know the truth!

[RUMOR VS FACT] T-ara’s bullying case: Evident #1

O

I’m just tired trying to defend T-ara when people don’t even want to trying to listen. So, just take what I write as a different POV between fans, non-fans & haters. Whether you want to believe it or not, it’s up to you!

I run this blog for almost two years and become their fans since their debut. Long enough, right? Collect, save, sorting, posting photos and videos almost every day for about two years, T-ara just become part of my life. Even though I never met them, I feel like I know their personality through their body language, the way they talk and etc. I watched almost every single video of their shows, interviews and performances etc.

So, let’s begin!

I admit, when Hwayoung joined t-ara, she is kind of awkward and her first appearance in variety show is T-ara Hello Baby. She kind of lost in that show. She rarely talk and she really closes to the youngest baby in that show, Maden. During that show, Maden only 1 years old and still can’t talk so at the some point it become disadvantages to Hwayoung compare to another members because other members deal with the grown up babies that know how to talk and throw tantrum so the show focused more on them. Hwayoung is in charge to take care of Maden in that show because Maden really comfortable with her and it prevents him from crying during filming. Her situation in Hello Baby just like Hyomin in the early episode of Invincible Youth. They live in their own world during filming and kind of ignore people around them. I can say, during Hello Baby, Hwayoung struggle by herself to adapt in the variety show!

T-ara Hello Baby EP11

In a scene from KBS “Hello baby” Soyeon and Boram are busy cooking dumplings for the group. But as they drop the dumplings in the pot to boil it, Boram says, “The water’s going to overflow if we put in Hwayoung’s.” Soyeon responds, “Yeah, don’t put it in.” Hwayoung ends up not having a dumpling.

The truth is:

Hwayoung’s dumpling is the biggest and it can’t be fit in the pot. They actually steam that dumpling for Hwayoung because they can’t put it in the pot. Of course haters will only post something to show the members mistreated Hwayoung. Here is the videos! 1 , 2

Written by a Woojung fan about Eunjung and the recent T-ara controversy:

Right now, it is as if we are in the centre of a vortex, in the midst of a temporary peace, unsure as to whether we are situated in the darkness before dawn, or whether we are about to face a greater storm.

I’ve followed the recent news silently, watching as things turned for the worse, and watching as Eunjung lost, one by one, all her work…losing the things that are the most important to her, things that she has worked for all her life. The hard work that this girl has put in for the past 3 years, all her sweat, determination, painful and sleepless nights, in exchange, she has received the label of “evil.” It’s unfair, really unfair. Too unfair.

But things in life are always as such. Because she is the most hardworking, because her work has had the most exposure, she was hurt the most. Had she been out of the spotlight, the harm to her right now would not be as great. But what did she? What did she actually do? These past few days, people have been trying to find blemishes on Eunjung’s profile, and what did they find? An edited video of her feeding rice cake. I cannot help but not say this, but Ham Eun Jung, your blemishes are so small and little that it pains my heart. But just like that, this one example was used to determine a person’s character and to deny her of everything. For a small act of horseplay. Is it fair? No it’s not.

But the world does not care about fairness, and it is likely that only the people who love her will care whether this is fair. I am a Woojung fan, but I hae always focused and praised Jangwoo and rarely Eunjung. But today, I want to talk about Eunjung.

A lot of people may not know it, but the thing about Eunjung that touched me the most was not her appearance, not her cuteness, not her aegyo. It was something unrelated to appearance, it was what she said: “I’m T-ara’s Eunjung.” It was the “T-ara” that she talked about all the time that made me look at her seriously. This girl, though participating in an individual programme, never forgot to mention and bring up her group. She came to participate in a solo programme that shows off a person’s individual charisma, but it seems as if she also carried the task of getting her group noticed. What impressed me was that she did not treat this as a burden. She really put in all her effort. She asked ahjummas, “Do you know T-ara? T-ara…” When she Roly Poly started playing in the car, she said, “Everybody quiet, listen to this!”

Girl group idols who participate in We Got Married are many, but comparatively, T-ara really has been mentioned the most. Roly Poly, Bo Peep Bo Peep, Lovey Dovey…each title song has followed along in We Got Married. Adding to that was the scene in MBC Gayo when Woojung Couple MC-ed together, where Eunjung fought for a chance for T-ara to have screen time. Eunjung weaved through the crowd just to bring her group to the front [T/N: this was seen in a fancam taken just before the countdown]. She was not the only female-idol MC there at the time, but she was the only one who, while participating in a solo activity, thought not of how to get more screen-time for herself, but of how to get more screen-time for T-ara.

At the MBC Gayo, Eunjung hurt her ankle…and the result? In less than a week, without rest, Eunjung went on stage to perform after receiving painkillers. This was not some large concert performance, but only a small stage on Music Bank. But for T-ara’s first comeback of the year, she pushed through. Compared to this, filming her drama [Queen Insoo] with a cast is nothing. Such professionalism, pain and determination, her achievements gained in exchange for her blood, sweat, and her own health. In return, she gained this label of “wicked” and “bully”. Is it fair? No it isn’t.

Some people say, she came in last at the Idol Olympics, so what does she know about determination? But those people do not know, or pretend not to know, that the day before Idol Olympics, she filmed Running Man until 3am. For a 25 year old girl who has injured her left leg three times – having torn her ligaments, received surgery, received multiple doses of painkillers to perform on stage, having appeared on shows on crutches, having filmed running and jumping the night before until 3am only to wake up early in the morning with a smile on her face to participate in the Idol Olympics, for a girl like this, does coming in last place really mean she has no determination? … Really?

Her leg… it can no longer withstand such intense sports anymore. She is only a bird with clipped wings and can no longer fly around easily anymore… This is why I have always looked at this girl with fondness. If she was wicked, lazy, black-hearted, went around lecturing people while not working hard herself, then I would not have nothing to say. But the truth is not like that. Even if only from We Got Married, I can see the effort she puts in to maintain and safeguard T-ara. Even if only from We Got Married, I can still see her professionalism and perserverance for her work. Even the Korean press has reported before that she has the busiest schedule. Let’s look at what the press have said before:

“Schedules that even popular SNSD members, IU, and even male idols have found difficult to complete, even when she has completed such busy and hectic schedules, which is by itself not an easy task, there has been never any news her fainting or falling unconscious. Even when she is tired, she has never been called out for attitude problems. This is the ‘woman of steel’, T-ara’s Eunjung.”

Enduring the craziest schedules, always undertaking superhuman amounts of work, yet never complaining or slacking off. Always the optimistic and bubbly one, the one who would step in for other members if anything happens to them. This is the Eunjung that makes my heart ache. The achievements that she has gained using everything she had in her life, all destroyed just like that… Rumours and insults, just like that, destroyed a girl. But, what exactly did she do wrong? What did she do wrong to ever have to suffer such accusations?

She was clearly the last to tweet, and yet it was reported that she was the first one to do so. Why did people have to photoshop those screencaps like that? I don’t know. But let’s look closely at her tweet:

“A person’s status is created by people; determination as well can also be created… Aigoo, it’s upsetting. Should be considerate to those beside you”

What I want to say is, regardless of whom this tweet is directed to, I first have to say that coming from Ham Eun Jung, there is nothing wrong with it. Because her status was indeed created from her own struggles, from her own hard work all these years. Indeed, she was not given this status, but created it herself. Because she used her determination to complete the busiest schedules. Because she is clearly not a selfish person. If she were one, she would not have performed on stage while injured. So what she said, she did. She was not being scornful or taunting. As one of the longest T-ara members, the first leader, and the member with the greatest responsibility, she has the qualifications to say these words.

Discussions always tend to support the weak, but what is right and wrong is not measured by a person’s strength or weakness or pity for the weak. Behind those who are strong, are also blood, sweat, and tears.

Ever since I have slowly come to understand this girl, I wished for her to go solo and to find her own path and success. But I also realize that she is the one least likely to leave T-ara even if she has the most potential to succeed in doing so. I have always thought that she has a sense of stubbornness and determination towards T-ara. In Star Life Theatre, when thinking about T-ara 10 years from now, she cried. There will come a day when all their current glory will eventually fade away, and what brilliance she can hold onto and make into reality now is only temporary. Yet knowing this, she is like a moth to a flame, and will continue to try her best. Because, for this, she has already put in too much effort for too long. Eunjung has said before self-deprecatingly: she is destined to work forever. I agree, she is. Her stubbornness and determination: to get T-ara to the top.

But when hope is near, it is completely destroyed. I feel saddened and heartbroken for how cruel fate is to this girl. She should not be treated in this manner. Did she do anything wrong? I would not say that she is a flawless goddess. She isn’t. Everyone is responsible to an extent for T-ara’s current situation, but the blame and criticism she is getting is too much. She has become a figurehead for netizens to express their anger on.

Yesterday, I told my friend, let this be an once-in-a-lifetime life lesson then. But I know this is only something said in optimism, something that is easily said. I worry for Eunjung, but I also believe that she will grow stronger and learn from this experience. This girl, who hides her weakness in an outer appearance of strength, will either collapse or get back up stronger. I believe it is the latter. I too am looking forward to the return of a stronger and more determined Ham Eunjung. And more importantly, I know that she is not alone: she has her family and people who admire and believe in her.

This is actually a step in the right direction. T-ara should probably just go focus on Japan for the time being anyways, it was bound to happen sooner or later. Scandal or no, as their popularity grew in Japan I figured they'd probably pull a KARA and focus on where the money is at since Jewelry Box is already their best selling album of all time to date, not factoring in repackages. Japan is much more tolerant of these silly idol scandals and, promisingly enough, Jewelry Box still continues to hold up well on the charts in spite of the controversy. This can give the Korean community time to cool down and come to their senses while T-ara works on cultivating their fanbase in Japan and improving relations over there. Who knows, we may be getting J-Sexy Love before K-Sexy Love. B)

Hmmm, even if the Japanese fans would be more tolerant on the issue (although it's still likely they too were immensely shocked by the chaos as well), that would all fall into EMI's decision and so far, they've remained very silent - and just like those companies that had CF deals with T-ara, they too are probably convinced to lay low or just out of the mess outright.

Who knows, they're probably also extremely disappointed towards KKM's awful handling of the situation and even if the girls were to fly over to Japan for the time being, it'd still make some headlines and given the amount of antis that surged, K-netizens will probably take it as an excuse that they're 'running away' from their problems and cause another fuss about it. And it's not like J-netizens themselves will remain exactly calm either - maybe not as much as K-fans, but still to some degree.

Besides, even if they were to go to Japan, I wouldn't expect it to happen for at least several weeks since a lot of planning on what is to be done there specifically has to be taken into account along with whatever EMI has to say.

EMI's probably not saying much because they know how to play the game...they're saying as little about the controversy as possible, and really, at this point that's how it needs to be handled. No doubt this will blow over sooner in Japan than it will in Korea, and from what I understand J-Queens are a bit more loyal than K-Queens have proven themselves to be so far after having spoken to many people on the issue. Still, I have a hard time believing this has taken over the airwaves in Japan like it did it Korea. No doubt that J-netizens will probably voice some less than flattering opinions on the matter but I doubt it will be to the extent that Korean netizens have taken it.

No doubt that K-netizens will cry foul if T-ara decides to focus on Japan for a bit, but at this point there's not a lot the girls can do that won't be heavily criticized, and it's certainly going to be the least of their concerns if they catch a bit of flack for heading to the land of the rising sun for a while.

I don't expect them to head to Japan for several weeks either; and that's fine. The girls can use it as time off as I'm certain that with only two weeks left before their comeback and this mess far from cleared up, Sexy Love promotions will be postponed in Korea for now. And EMI has pretty much had their say...they're sticking by the girls obviously, especially if they're feeling optimistic enough to announce their plans of a stadium tour. Jewelry Box 's performance (both the album and the tour) exceeded most people's expectations and I doubt that EMI is going to give up on T-ara over this incident; as a matter of fact I'm pretty sure that T-ara has a much better chance of salvaging their reputation in Japan than they do in Korea as they know how to advertise, they know how to play the game, and even if they're not COMPLETELY out of his grasp, they'll be away from KKS, even if just in distance. Who knows, it may be wishful thinking on my part.
