The year was 2012, I was graduating from elementary school and becoming a freshman in high school. This was also the year I fully dove into K-pop. Before I mainly listened to Girls’ Generation and SHINee, with a Big Bang and f(x) video here and there. But that all changed when “Gangnam Style” became popular and I decided to listen to many other groups, T-ara was one of those groups. Their Absolute First Album was actually one of the first K-pop albums I listened to from start to finished and loved it. T-ara soon became one of my favorite groups.
Then the bully scandal broke lose and things got confusing.
