5 Aug – The Seoul Seocho Police Department recently denied receiving any reports from Core Contents Media in regards to the fabricated stories made by an alleged former back dancer concerning T-ARA's bullying.
Allkpop reported that earlier, the group's agency recently announced that the alleged back dancer testimony had been fabricated and had submitted a request to the police.
However, the police have refuted the claim, stating, "There is not a single report on file relating to Core Contents Media or T-ARA and that various reports saying that the agency has reported this to the cyber investigations squad is false."
On 29 July, a person claiming to be T-ARA's former back dancer had confirmed that there is indeed a bullying problem in the group, revealing that on one occasion, junior member Ji-yeon had slapped Hwa-young. CCM was quick to deny the claims and several media stated that the agency has reported the person claiming to be T-ARA's former back dancer to the cyber investigations department.
