Mnet aired a special documentary titled "Confession of T-ara", marking the first time the group has discussed the controversial dismissal of Hwayoung from the group.
The special program aired on Mnet on October 20th, showing footage from the group's to Malaysia for a concert. Afterwards though, the girls spoke up about how they felt about Hwayoung being kicked out of the group.
"We're very sorry to our fans for a lot of things. We feel like we always bring about worries to our fans in Korea and abroad," Soyeon started.
"We are very thankful, touched and feel strengthened by the messages telling us to cheer up and be strong; however, we feel like we've only done things to make fans tell us to have strength all the time, so we're always sorry. Whenever we meet our fans, we're supposed to be paying back for the love they've given us, but instead it feels like we leave having earned strength from them instead, so we're always sorry and thankful," Hyomin and Soyeon continued.
Hyomin then began sharing her thoughts, ending up in tears in the process from sharing her feelings on such a hurtful subject. "There were some misunderstanding and there were things that happened...We are...it's not like that...We ended up just pushing on with promotions and standing on stage right away...I have a hard time thinking to myself, 'It will get better if we keep going on like this' because every time we stand on stage and get together everyday, we think about what happened and we can't help but remember it all," she said with remorse.
The rest of the member shed tears as they shared their stories as well, though they tried to lighten the mood afterwards by talking to each other rather than directly at the camera to create a more relaxed environment rather than a confessional.
