The conflicts started as some members posted tweets in unison on their Twitters account, giving an impression that Hwa young had been the target of bullying by other members. Although the management agency Hwa young once belonged to, Core Contents Media, officially announced that there was ever any bullying, many insiders and reporters of entertainment told that Hwa young had been a outcast since she started being a member of T-ara in 2010.
Many fans have been very disgruntled by the scandal because the problem of bullying is a very serious issue in Korea.
The management contracts between Hwa young and Core Contents Media was terminated as Kim, Kwang soo, the boss of the Core Contents Media, announced official public release. However, the issue still doesn't show signs of abating.
Why did this incident happen? This bullying scandal shows us a dark side of the entertainment industry. To make a idol group, management companies hold auditions and search for someone with not only a great appearance but also a great ability to either sing or dance. Once they are chosen as a trainee, they have to practice extremely hard to debut as a Idol group. In the process of tough training, they have to practice singing or dancing with other trainees who have a very different personality or may be jealous of them. To make matters worse, usually when Idol groups start their career as a entertainer, the age of the members of the group is usually teenage. This means some of them are mentally immature and arrogant so it can fuel conflict within the group. Almost every idol group has a rumor that some members have been embroiled in bullying or other scandals.
The downside of relationship among idol members has finally been revealed to their fans. A lot of followers and admirer turn their back on T-ara , even some of them turn into anti T-ara fans. How can Core Contents Entertainment sort this issue out? By manipulating the medias, as it always do? If it does, the bullying issue may gain momentum.
It seems that there needs to be serious consideration and long-term solution about both to prevent this from happening again, and for K-pop stars to recieve more love from their fans.
