When T-ara N4 guested on the latest episode of ‘Beatles Code 2,’ they delved into last year’s bullying rumor of bullying ex-member Hwayoung.
Eunjung brought up the topic when netizens gathered evidence that Hwayoung was being bullied by Eunjung, after shots of her forcefully feeding Hwayoung rice cake on a variety show caught attention. Fingers were pointed at her and she was given the name ‘rice-cake Eunjung.’
Eunjung declared, “That was done all for fun. When we were on a Japanese TV show, the host told us we should make it funny, and as part of the member of the losing team on the show, I was supposed to feed rice-cake to someone on the winning team. I thought about who I could give the rice-cake to for the best reaction. Qri and Hyomin were there as well but they don’t have much of a reaction, so I thought that Hwayoung, who would probably give the best reaction, would be best. So I purposefully made my own facial expression like that and fed her the rice-cake to make it as fun as possible. I didn’t think it would become so big later.”
Jiyeon showed agreement by stating, “The program was designed it so it would be more entertaining.“
Eunjung continued explaining, “I really like rice cakes, but I can’t eat it outside anymore. The nickname ‘rice-cake Eunjung’ hurt me a lot, but after the mistake during the judging for the Olympics, I was able to laugh and heal a bit thanks to funny mentions on Twitter like ‘rice-cake Eunjung go go!’, and also with students telling me ‘Eunjung unnie, I’m taking my test today, can you feed me some rice-cake’. I was able to endure it like that.”
