Last July, when T-ara's Hwayoung was reportedly forced out of the group, many K-pop fans accused her former bandmates of bullying, posting video clips and photos of the alleged incidents online.
In one such incident Jiyeon of T-ara mocked Hwayoung online after she won an online popularity poll.
"I won first place in a popularity poll, so I'm sharing this picture," Jiyeon wrote. "Oh, and Hwayoung got zero votes. Haha. Our poor Hwayoung."
Other incidents involved the whole group snubbing her onstage and Jiyeon mocking Hwayoung on the reality show "Star Life Theater" for pretending to read a book.
"It's because of the camera [your're reading a book]," Jiyeon said according to website Soompi
The members of T-ara N4 talked about their bullying scandal and various other rumors for the first time on broadcast.
The girls were guests on the May 6 episode of Mnet‘s ‘Beatles Code 2‘. Hyomin was the first to speak up, and she said, “There were rumors that I was a thug when I went to school. I just hung out with kids who weren’t the nicest kids, but that was it. There are also rumors that I was forced to move schools because I had hit another student. I never hit anyone. I’d rather someone come out and say that I hit them.” Hyomin revealed that she had moved schools, but it wasn’t because she had hit someone. She explained, “My mom decided that I should switch schools because she wanted to pursue a better education for me

With T-ARA not using their twitter since July, their individual and acting activities have continued, gaining much attention.
Last month, due to the 'bullying rumors', member Hwayoung was dismissed from the group. This created the 'T-ARA crisis', which made the group stop using their twitters.
Soyeon stopped using her twitter on July 20, Qri on July 25, Boram on July 26 and Hyomin, Eunjung, Jiyeon on July 27. This has shocked fans because twitter was their main source to communicate with their fans.
On July 30, after Hwayoung was dismissed from the group, she left a message on her twitter, "Thank you to all the fans and I am sorry for letting you all down
Just when you thought the whole Hwayoung/T-ara controversy was settling down, another video popped up online allegedly proving T-ara in fact did NOT harass or bully Hwayoung.
The video, titled “Video to explain T-ara’s bullying,” runs for roughly 4-minutes and shows a series of clips proving Hwayoung and the rest of the T-ara members getting along well – contrary to the popular belief that Hwayoung was bullied by the group.
The video goes over several points, such as Jiyeon being the main bully or Eunjung’s rice cake shoving incident, and provides clips that are supposed to prove T-ara’s “innocence” from the entire bullying controversy. Each of the clip does indeed show Hwayoung playing and joking around with her alleged “bullies,” counter-arguing last week’s reports of T-ara hazing Hwayoung during her stay with the group

In KBS 2TV "Number One" aired today, T-ARA's Eunjung and Jiyeon came out as special MCs. At the appearance of T-ARA members, many portal websites were full of interests and complaints.
What the problem is that Hwayoung had left T-ARA in the midst of bullying rumors.
Internet users said, "I think there's a problem in the members making an appearance when they are in the midst of all this controversy", "Are they continuing regular activity?", "Didn't they say they're going to take a break?", etc.
However, the male MCs were happy to have T-ARA members come out in their show

With the controversy surrounding the bullying scandal of T-ara and Hwayoung heating up, more and more evidence of T-ara’s internal bullying has been surfacing. Recently, one netizen claiming to be a trainee at Core Contents Media revealed Jiyeon’s bullish behavior.
The anonymous writer started, “I am a second year trainee who is under the same agency as T-ara. GM Media = Core Contents Media = mnet Media. I decided to write this because of my frustration regarding the recent T-ara incident. These are my last words. I will quit being a trainee and disappear.”
She continued, “Hwayoung debuted on December, 3, 2010, and I became a trainee on April 18, 2010…If you come here, you’re screwed for life. During one of T-ara’s off-days, they came to our practice room
