Girl band T-ara are bouncing back after a bullying scandal before releasing the mini album "Mirage" on Sept. 3. The original plan was to release the album in early August, but this had to be delayed until the scandal ebbed off.
Their management agency Core Contents Media on Thursday apologized for the "misunderstanding and trouble" created by the scandal, which involved allegations of member Hwa-young being bullied and ostracized by the other members of the manufactured combo before she abruptly left the band last month.
On Monday this week, Hwa-young tweeted, "It's true that I had conflicts with other members, but I want to stay on good terms with them, supporting each other." T-ara members on Wednesday said they "deeply regret and apologize" for the bullying.
The agency said, "They got together to better understand each other and reconcile."
