Though it is true that T-ARA’s back dancer team is Yama & Hot Chicks, it has not yet been confirmed that this internet user is a a dancer from this team. Nevertheless, her post is receiving much attention due to its ability to specifically describe the Hwayoung bullying incident.
This internet user wrote, “Due to the busy schedule and the tense start to the rehearsal, Hwayoung had gotten some of the moves wrong. After seeing her Soyeon and Jiyeon sneered at Hwayoung and said, ‘I would do well if I were you.'”
She continued to write, “As our coordinator mediated the slight conflict and started the rehearsal again, Jiyeon noticed Hwayoung’s dark expression. Jiyeon then slapped Hwayoung on the cheek and practically cursed at Hwayoung, ‘If you had the honor enough to join this prestigious group you should prove your worth. Get rid of that face and practice,'”
Internet users commented, “If this is true, it’s really shocking,” and, “I don’t think she could possibly make up such a detailed scenario. I want to know what the truth is.” They also wrote, “I’m sure if Hwayoung’s parents saw this, they’d be really upset.”
Currently T-JinYo (We Want the Truth Behind T-ARA), a movement by fans, is increasing in number by the day: as of lately it’s at 160,000 members.
