Former AOA member Jimin (지민) has been keeping everything low-key in the midst of the long and overdue controversy involving her and fellow teammate Kwon Mina (권민아)
Just recently, various Korean news outlets have reported that an alleged neighbour, who lives in the same building as Jimin, came forth and provided some updates on the idol’s current whereabouts.
Said neighbour revealed in a post shared on an online community forum, “I live in the same building as Jimin, so I see her occasionally when she walks her dogs. I hope she can be more confident when she walks around in the future.”
They continued by sharing, “I can’t see her face very well because she wears a mask and a hat. But I can recognise that it’s Jimin from AOA. I’m not sure whether she’s gotten skinnier, because she used to be very thin. I think it’s a pity that she’s always going around with her head down.”
Additionally, it was also rumoured that Jimin has been living her life “completely secluded” after departing from the K-pop scene. It was also said she hasn’t kept in touch with many people since the bullying controversy broke out. Close acquaintances of the “Unpretty Rapstar” alum reportedly told the media that they weren’t aware of Jimin’s status, saying that it was ‘unknown’.”

In related news, following the recent shocking turn of events (thanks to Dispatch) surrounding Jimin and Mina, plenty of fans and also netizens have begun flooding the comments section on the former’s Instagram page. In this case, a lot of them apologised to her for all the misunderstandings about the entire situation. They were also sorry for hating and for blindly trusting Mina’s words.
Aside from that, others also expressed their hopes for the 30-year-old celeb to make her comeback to the entertainment industry, whether with the rest of the AOA members or even as a soloist. Some of the fans urged Jimin to break her silence and speak up about the matter.
Check out some of the comments here:
For those who don’t know, Jimin announced back in July 2020 that she’d be leaving AOA and the entire entertainment industry after Mina came up with several allegations, claiming that she was bullied by her for 10 years. Since then, the rapper completely disappeared from the scene and not much information has been revealed in regards to her whereabouts.
