Not only are my acquaintances sending me messages, but also many other people are sending me messages of worry and support through DM, text, and other ways, but I’m sorry I can’t reply to each and every one of them. I’m trying to read as many of them as I can, and I’m just really, really grateful..
I’ll be back as soon as possible so that you all won’t be worried and receive treatment well, step by step so I will be healthy and return with a bright image. I’ll try my best, so please take care of yourselves and don’t get sick. Don’t forget to wear a mask, and try not to catch a cold since it will be raining and the weather is both hot and cold these days.
Once again, I am very thankful, and I am sincerely sorry… Fighting everyone.
On July 3, Mina first uploaded a series of posts, revealing an AOA member bullied her to the point of extreme thoughts. Jimin responded to such allegations, but then Mina continued to share posts detailing what happened to her. She even revealed how her agency at the time, FNC Entertainment, did not take any corrective action. Early on the morning of July 4, she posted her “final” update on the situation, revealing Jimin apologized to her, but then revealed more about Jimin’s actions. FNC Entertainment then announced Jimin would leave AOA and the entertainment industry.
