T-ara clarifies why SISTAR’s Hyorin spoke to them informally
T-ara has set out to clarify the rumors surrounding the controversy that occurred after SISTAR‘s Hyorin spoke informally to them on a recent television broadcast.
On the July 14th episode of KBS‘ ‘Entertainment Relay‘, T-ara and SISTAR guested on the ‘Idol Big Match‘ corner. After the show, viewers questioned why Hyorin spoke informally to the T-ara members, who are considered her seniors.
T-ara thought it was appropriate to clear the air through their agency. They expressed on the 16th, “We see SISTAR on and off stage, and we’re very close so we didn’t think much of it at the time, and it’s regrettable that it’s become a controversy now. We hope that people won’t misinterpret things after only watching [the segment that was aired].”
They continued, “SISTAR always works so hard on stage, and we’re fans of the girls. We hope that Hyorin and all of the members receive a lot of love for their good songs and continue their fighting spirit.”
Netizens commented, “It’s refreshing to hear T-ara’s clarification,” “They themselves are saying it’s okay, so why are people making a big deal,” “[People create controversies so easily],” and “I hope both parties continue to be careful though.”
