The ladies of T-ARA have decided to clear up the situation and give their confession about the Hwayoung controversy a few months ago. The show titled "Confession of T-ARA" aired on Mnet 2PM KST and the commercial teaser seemed to have intrigued the fans who have wanted the truth for so long. There was a bit of footage from their trip to Malaysia during their showcase.
This is marked as the first T-ARA interview as a whole group since the scandal.
As the interview started, Soyeon immediately apologized to the fans, "Honestly, we're so very sorry to our fans for many things. For our international fans as well as the ones in Korea, we always feel that we make them worry,"
Hyomin chimed in also, "We feel strength from these messages from our fans
Despite the recent controversies surrounding girl group T-ara in the past couple of months, the members traveled to Hong Kong to hold the group's first ever showcase in the city. Due to the intrusion of Typhoon Sanba in South Korea, T-ara's flight was delayed, and as a result, the press conference was also delayed. However, the group promptly apologized for the inconvenience when the press conference finally got underway.
At the beginning of the press conference, the translator expressed that all the issues surrounding the group is in the past, and thus requested the media to only focus on how T-ara has been doing recently. Despite this, the departure of Hwayoung was brought up as one of the main focuses of the press conference, and the members were asked how they felt in relation to the issue.
After being asked, it appeared that Jiyeon felt uncomfortable with the question
Despite the recent controversy surrounding the departure of Hwayoung, T-ara is set to hold the group’s first showcase in Hong Kong as scheduled on September 18th. To promote the event, a video message was revealed on YouTube.
Although the showcase itself has not been affected by the controversy, netizens began leaving a new wave of negative comments regarding the promotional videos for the showcase. In particular, in the video released on July 19th for the showcase in Malaysia, Hwayoung was shown alongside the rest of the members. However, in the newly released video for the Hong Kong showcase, the video was edited to cut out Hwayoung.
As the members wore the same outfits in both of the videos and stood at the same location, netizens were quick to point out the edit and questioned the professionalism of T-ara’s company

It has been exactly one week. On July 28, the members of T-ARA all except Hwayoung updated their personal Twitter pages regarding the power of will. In response, Hwayoung posted, "Some things cannot be done just by the power of will." People in the online communities who saw T-ARA's abusive postings assumed that there was a case of bullying within the idol girl group. T-ARA's controversy has become such an aggravating but hot topic that even a web-tune writer Lee Mal Nyun updated his personal Twitter page stating, "T-ARA you crazy girls.. Your stupid controversy is becoming a bigger issue than the Olympics. It is so aggravating and angering."

The answer to those questions can be answered with two keywords: "Outcast" and "Kim Kwang Soo" of Core Contents Media
