The bullying scandal involving former AOA leader and rapper, Shin Jimin (신지민) and her fellow former member, Kwon Mina (권민아) seems to be an ongoing trend as Mina recently revealed new facts related to the controversy.
Mina claimed that there were four people including herself who were victims of Jimin’s bullying. She disclosed the information through a series of Instagram posts starting with a screenshot of her DM conversation with someone.
Mina wrote, “I’m almost 30 and you think I can’t even curse out? Scared by hate comments? I’m determined to succeed because of the hate comments, not that I will cry over those. Talk as much as you want. I’m better off living as I am.”
Mina then went on to say that she used to think that losing her temper was the same as losing a battle. However, she later felt that it wasn’t true, at least for herself.
“I used to think losing patience is losing battle but it was not true, at least to me. It became harder to revert and I was more frustrated. I might as well just live as my honest self. If you think I shouldn’t because I’m a public figure, I am ready to let go of that,” she continued.
The former idol also confessed that she had evidence that could prove the bullying allegation against Jimin. Albeit that there were other victims beside herself, Mina claimed that at least she managed to survive Jimin’s bullying. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for one of the victims who has passed away.
“There is evidence (to support the fact that Jimin bullied). Notwithstanding, there are several victims of her. I just happened to be the last standing one. I’ve been keeping this for a lawsuit but there are four victims including myself and one of them has already passed. On top of the assault, isn’t this at the level of the perpetrator?” she continued in another post.
Kwon Mina has recently revealed that it was only Jimin that constantly bullied her and not the entire AOA members. In related news, police have launched an investigation and have been looking into Mina’s past sexual assault.
