    K-pop girl group T-ara have postponed their first concert scheduled for Aug. 11 after the unexpected firing of one of the group's eight members.

    The band's management agency in a press release quoted the band as saying, "Since we are in the middle of controversy over Hwa-young leaving the group, we don't think we can meet the fans with a bright smile, and they wouldn't be able to enjoy our concert in this situation."

    The agency added T-ara "will come back with better music after some self-reflection."

    The firing cast the spotlight on an endemic culture of ostracism and bullying in girl and boy groups who spend almost all their time together.
