Filmed by T-ara's Jiyeon, Eunjung and Areum before things came to where it is now, MBC's 'Quiz to Change the World' has now aired their episode with the girls.

Check out their cuts below where they danced a bit of 'Day by Day' plus a bonus dance number from Areum.


In our recent post about Boram and Hwayoung's case, after making the point that malicious reports and rumors were indeed made by those who are against T-ara when the bullying issue came up and became big, here are more proofs to dispute the bullying rumors against the girls.

Really, there is nothing to prove but since many have believed these rumors, there's no other way but to dispute it and prove that these are just baseless rumors.  Originally we just wanted to just let the issue rest and let it go, but since many have requested to post it here, here are more proofs against the bullying rumors about T-ara as created by hyotheleader, just compiled and edited here, credits goes to the owners.
 
BULLYING RUMOR
Netizens posted: T-ara ignored Hwayoung at the Idol championships.  She ended up hanging out with INFINITE and SISTAR the entire time.  It was the same event where the alleged "Umbrella Incident" happened.
 
 The TRUTH is:

You can see the truth on the two photos above,  the reason why Hwayoung was alone is because Jiyeon and Eunjung were playing the game at the time.   Soyeon and Hyomin we're not there because of their drama filming while Qri and Boram were nowhere to be found as well.  There's nothing wrong with making friends outside your group.

This rumor also made many believe that Hwayoung is an outcast.  If being an outcast means you are not with your group during an event and you are with your other friends outside your group, does that mean Hyomin is also an outcast?  Here are Hyomin's pictures from last year's Idol championships where you can see her alone or with other idols and not with other T-ara members.
 
 


BULLYING RUMOR
Netizens posted this GIF where Jiyeon was seen hitting Hwayoung.  The question is, if it's really an act of bullying, will Jiyeon do this on the show that will be watched by millions of people?  Back then they probably remarked, "Oh! Jiyeon is so cute".

The TRUTH is:
In 2nd episode of Hello Baby, because Soyeon and Jiyeon failed the mission in episode 1 they were not qualified to take care the babies so they are left out by the other T-ara members and they can’t enter the restaurant.  After they enter the restaurant, they acted like the bad girls in the show (typical things you see in a variety show).
 
Also in the show, Jiyeon was also seen hitting Qri, and as you may have guessed, the antis just ignored it, that's because their aim is to make it look like they are bullying Hwayoung.


BULLYING RUMOR
Netizens Posted: Hwayoung asked for candy and Soyeon specifically chose the lollipop that fell on the ground and offered it to her. Hwayoung ate it without knowing it had fallen on the floor.

The TRUTH is:
You can see the desperation of the anti fans here, they are just posting one screencap and making stories out of it.

Hwayoung actually asked Soyeon for a grape-flavoured lollipop in this episode and Soyeon jokingly said that she dropped the lolillpop. When Soyeon said that, Hwayoung still don’t put the lollipop into her mouth yet but of course, knowing that Soyeon only joking by saying that, Hwayoung still eat the lollipop in the end!

BULLYING RUMOR

Netizens posted: On a Japanese show, as punishment Eunjung had to feed one of the members a large rice cake. She went up to Hwayoung and shoved a rice cake in her mouth. You could tell that Hwayoung didn’t want to eat the rice cake, however Hyomin put her hand on her back and therefore encouraged Hwayoung to eat the rice cake. Meanwhile Eunjung continued to force the rice cake down her throat. This is extremely dangerous as there have been many incidents in Korea of people choking on rice cake, as it has a sticky texture. Many Korean netizens claimed that Eunjung should have known this fact, and that if she didn't there was no way she was Korean. Soyeon and Eunjung also exchanged a look right before Eunjung fed Hwayoung the rice cake as if saying, Go get Hwayoung. This is our chance".

The TRUTH is:
This is Japanese Show not a Korean one so of course everything is different. Just like how Japanese are disgusted when Koreans eat ramen using lid of the pot, Japanese also have something that isunfamiliar to Korean culture. In this show they played ‘Batsu Game’.

A Batsu game (罰ゲーム, batsu gēmu), meaning “penalty game”, is a common element in Japanese owarai stage comedy and variety shows. The name comes from batsu (罰, batsu), meaning both “punishment” and “X”, as in an incorrect answer.

…a game where at the end the winner must make the loser do something very unpleasant. Common punishments include getting slapped across the face, and the winner is supposed to take great joy in knowing that they don’t have to be on the receiving end of the punishment…which explains why Eunjung looked so smug, and why the punishment looked particularly cruel. Part of the fun is watching the loser's reactions to the punishment in question. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batsu_game]

That was just one part of the show and of course, because the haters only see what they want to see, they ignored what happened during the whole show.  Also, this video was out a long time ago and probably back then, many found it funny.  But now that there are these "bullying issues", what?

BULLYING RUMOR
Netizens posted: At the beginning of T-ara's 1st episode of KBS 'Star Life Theater, all the group members lined up to give an introductory greeting. As all the members pointed at the camera, to signal the start of the show, Hyomin oddly strikes her finger upwards, and accidentally pokes her finger at Hwayoung's face.

The TRUTH is:
The truth is, and it came from the haters as well, the keyword was "accidentally", how can an accident be considered as an "act of bullying"?  Also just like the alleged "Boram destroyed Hwayoung's umbrella" issue, the K-netizens just posted a part of the video, if they also screencapped the next few seconds, everyone could have seen that Hyomin apologized right away.  You can watch the video here.

BULLYING RUMOR
Netizens Posted: Other idols received the support of their members when injured, unlike Hwayoung, who had to manage everything on her own with crutches.

The TRUTH IS:
If they are not helping Hwayoung, what is Hyomin doing in this GIF?

BULLYING RUMOR
Another case claiming that Hwayoung is being left out as the netizens posted these two photos.

The TRUTH is:
The truth is, K-netizens are really good in making up stories specially if they are screencaps from fancams or videos.  Everyone has seen that in the other cases in this post.  

Check out these pictures:
 
If pictures are not enough, you can watch this fancam.

BULLYING RUMOR
Netizens posted: Hwayoung is sitting off to the side, even though there’s a perfectly open seat. However that open seat was intentionally covered by the other members’ coats not giving her any place to sit.  (From an Episode of Pretty Boys for T-ara)

The TRUTH is:
In this episode, Hyomin and Soyeon were missing in the 1st part of the show because they had another schedule (Roly Poly the Musical).

They appeared in the 2nd part of the show and during that time Soyeon and Hyomin were playing with the video camera in the hallway while Qri, Boram and Hwayoung were already in the room waiting for them.  As you can see on the next batch of photos, there's an empty space on the seat but Hwayoung already chose not to sit there right from the start.

Also on the last photo, is that the face of someone being bullied at that moment? 

BULLYING RUMOR
Netizens posted: Hwayoung was excluded from the group and tried to take part in it, however she was excluded.  Along with this GIF where Boram seemed to be hitting Hwayoung.

The TRUTH is:
When the camera refocused and got Hwayoung, no one really saw what she did before that.  Again, the question "Would they bully her in front of the camera?" comes in.  What if they are just playfully teasing each other.

Here's the video from where the gif was made, you'll be the judge on this one.

BULLYING RUMOR
Netizens Posted: Boram not acknowledging Hwayoung as maknae in T-ara because on Hyomin’s birthday, Hyomin called Hyomin as a second maknae. Since Hwayoung is older than Jiyeon by a few months and Hyomin is 89er, Hwayoung suppose to be a second maknae not Hyomin. On Jiyeon birthday, Boram also wished Jiyeon by calling her forever maknae Jiyeon.

The TRUTH is:
 The truth is that Boram also greeted Hwayoung on her birthday and called her their maknae.

If the antis will point out that Boram called Hyomin their second maknae, there's nothing wrong with that as Jiyeon and Hwayoung were both born in 1993 so in that case they are actually the maknaes in T-ara.  But in the eyes of the fans, since Jiyeon is younger by a few months than Hwayoung, she became the official maknae.

Boram called Hyomin as their 2nd maknae as for her since Jiyeon and Hwayoung are the same age, they are the 1st maknaes in T-ara.  Boram's tweet to Hwayoung's birthday is the proof to that "Tall-maknae".

About Boram's tweet with "Happy birthday to our forever maknae Jiyeon",  there's still nothing wrong with that as Jiyeon is still really their maknae, but not until Dani joins later this year as she will be T-ara's maknae by then.  Boram also probably meant that even though Jiyeon is no longer a maknae in the group, she will always look at Jiyeon as the youngest one


Also from her interview from BNTnews here's what Boram said when she was asked about her opinion regarding the addition of new members, "I look forward to it. I’m happy yet worried at the same time. At times I think ‘will they be able to adjust?,’ but when I see the members’ cheerful selves, all of my worries disappear. I don’t think they’ll have any trouble adjusting. More than that, when I see our little ones ‘Jiyeon’ and ‘Hwayoung’ doting on the new members, I smile unknowingly. Should I call it an ‘auntie’s heart’?".

Also howabout our post when T-ara members greeted Hwayoung on her Birthday here.

BULLYING RUMOR
Netizens Posted: Fans claimed that there was a hidden message on Hwayoung's tweet saying "Only Fans Nows", and because of this some are saying that Hwayoung may not truly be apologizing for her actions.


The TRUTH is:
It really depends on the size of your browser and here are proofs for that.





BULLYING RUMOR
Netizens Posted: "On Hello Baby Hwayoung said that it;s her 100th day after debut and asks the members to congratulate her. Soyeon said, "That's just a special day for yourself only".

The TRUTH is:
NO! Soyeon never said that on Hello Baby! There is no proof about that statement made by Soyeon in Hello Baby that is why there is no screencaps or whatsoever that they can post.

Even if it's true, there's nothing wrong about that as it's a FACT.  It's true that it's only Hwayoung's special day, of course it was just given a different meaning and taken differently by those who are against T-ara.

It may not be the 100th day but here's a proof that fans really celebrated Hwayoung's special day and that is her 1st Anniversary as a T-ara member on December 3.

And because they only see what they want to see, they ignored when Hyomin told Hwayoung that they can celebrate T-ara anniversary on 29th July together because they are ONE as T-ara now!

BULLYING RUMOR
In a scene from KBS "Hello baby" Soyeon and Boram were busy cooking dumplings for the group. But as they drop the dumplings in the pot to boil it, Boram said, "The water’s going to overflow if we put in Hwayoung’s." Soyeon responds, "Yeah, don’t put it in". Netizens, claimed that Hwayoung ended up not having a dumpling.



The TRUTH is:
Hwayoung's dumpling is the biggest and it can't be fit in the pot. They actually steam that dumpling for Hwayoung because they can’t put it in the pot. Of course haters will only post something to show the members mistreated Hwayoung.
