Kwon Min-ah, popularly known as Mina, a former AOA member took to social media and alleged that she had been the victim of the bullying by AOA leader, JIMIN.
Initially, Kown wrote on Instagram, “I really do want to disappear [from the entertainment industry], but I have to look after my mom.”
“I guess now there’s going to be a lot of messages calling me empty-headed. Yes, I am. I didn’t have the chance to become educated because I had to start earning money from a young age for my family,” She wrote further.
In a Instagram poster, Mina also revealed that she had once attempted to commit suicide due to the bullying.
“Because we were in the same car, she just [forced] me to take mood stabilizers and sleeping pills, and I fell asleep. I could feel that I was breaking down bit by bit even though I had a busy schedule. I even attempted suicide because of her.”
Responding to Mina’s allegation, JIMIN took to Instagram and posted and deleted the message that stated ‘FICTION’, seemingly denying all the allegations made by Mina.
Proving the allegations true, Mina shared a picture of her wrist with multiple deep scars and wrote a caption asking JIMIN to acknowledge what she did to her and apologize for the same.
