The main reason for the halt is the latest developments involving former T-ara member Ryu Hwayoung, her twin sister and former 5Dolls member Ryu Hyoyoung, and T-ara. On a recent episode of tvN’s “Taxi,” Ryu Hwayoung and Ryu Hyoyoung talked about T-ara’s scandal from 2012, which has put T-ara in the spotlight once again for all the wrong reasons. Due to the timing of the incident, preparations were put on hold in order to prevent any misunderstanding about Jiyeon potentially using the scandal to bring more attention to the album. Jiyeon also did not want the incident to affect reception for her album, as she wants to be judged on her music alone.
Even through the action of getting exposed, the twins have managed to fuck T-ara over one last time.
