After the infamous T-ara bullying scandal with the expulsion of ex-member, Hwayoung, and the addition of Ahreum as well as planned addition of member Dani, Ahreum decided it was best to pack her bags, run the hell out of T-ara and start a solo career. Her video explaining her plans as well as the translation given below.
"There's a new update. It looks like I'll be seeing you all as a solo artist. Don't forget T-ara's Ahreum. Thank you for giving me so much love. I felt so much love at the fan meeting and while promoting with T-ara. In the future, I'll be meeting you all with an image that's a few thousand times better than the Ahreum you saw in 'Countryside Life'. The time I had with the unnis will be a fond memory, but Ahreum will most likely be returning solo. Still, the unnis will continue to be active, so don't forget them and don't forget Ahreum either. Ahreum fighting and T-ara fighting. Thank you so much for loving Ahreum until now. Please don't ever forget the songs or performance I had with T-ara. I miss you. I love you."
With commenters going on both sides, some hating Core Contents Media and T-ara while others hating Ahreum herself, I can kind of see the light on both sides.
The Against CCM side:
As stated by some commenters, it was supposedly already planned out that Ahreum stayed in the group for a little over a year then leave... but why add her in the first place if that plan was already made? And apparently, they're deciding whether or not to add the untalented member Dani to the group but really, can they not?
What's going to happen to T-ara N4? What's going to happen to T-ara's vocals now that Ahreum is gone and Soyeon is basically the only one who can support them? What's going to happen to Dani? Do you realize this is just even more bad reputation being that the prior newest member, Hwayoung, left the group and now the current newest member, Ahreum, is leaving the group? Are you just trying to stir up controversy and hate?
The Against Ahreum side:
I'm questioning the reason why she even joined T-ara if she wanted to be a soloist instead. Maybe joining the group with a bad reputation and getting the same sympathy and popularity as ex-member Hwayoung would help her solo career or maybe she's been locked in CCM dungeon after years of training and had no other choice but to join T-ara... either way, this seems a bit fishy to me.
Which way are you going with this? Against CCM, against Ahreum or simply neutral? Leave a vote and comment below!
