7 Aug – With the bullying controversies and public boycott still surrounding girl group T-ARA, it was revealed that many idol groups are avoiding making a comeback on the same day with T-ARA's "Sexy Love".
According to Allkpop website, Core Contents Media announced that they will not postpone the group's comeback stage despite of Hwa-young's dismissal.
But with the recent domino effect of the controversy surrounding the group, various idol groups are reportedly trying to avoid getting the same comeback date with the group after news saying that a lot of people will be boycotting T-ARA's appearance in any Ad and TV shows.
One idol group rep stated, "I think it would be wise not to overlap with T-ARA. It is best to stay far away from T-ARA as of right now since they will bring together other issues."
T-ARA's new song, "Sexy Love" is set to release on 14 August but the stage comeback has yet to be decided.
