The T-ara members have undergone long months of hatred and negativity from the public, even their own fans, and they shared that they eventually learned to use it as constructive criticism.
After their controversy, the internet blew up with hate comments and member Hyomin addressed, “I don’t look at it carefully but I skim through it. In the past, I would search a lot of negative comments and find comments such as “You need to work on this” and “This is so-so”, but now I try to find positive comments… These days, I feel better if encouraging posts increase a bit and as the positive posts increase. [Our members] say fighting to each other and read the posts to each other sometimes.”
Member Boram also shared, “The negative posts help us to reflect on ourselves and realize new things. I don’t think of it as negative posts but I think to myself, ‘We did it this way and we should fix it’, and I try to receive it positively. I cried a lot upon reading nonsensical and inappropriate comments but now that doesn’t affect me that much anymore. I think it is for our benefit and growth so rather than getting hurt, I learn from it.”
It seems like they have gotten over it and are working to improve themselves with their recent “Number 9” comeback!
