Ex-AOA member Kwon Mina (권민아) has issued her final message prior to deleting her Instagram account.
The former idol’s last social media post came following Dispatch’s most recent update on the bullying controversy between her and her alleged bully, Shin Jimin (신지민).
Last night (Thursday, 9th September), Mina took to her Instagram to shed light on the text conversation between her mom and her ex-BF, Yoo, as well as the text messages between her and the other AOA members including Jimin. She opened her statement by saying, “I can’t post, so I’ll tell you this and delete my Instagram tomorrow (today).”
“First of all, I checked the photos and videos claimed by Yoo as well as the level of severity. It only showed my condition. There were no other words, and that text was all. There were no threats. There was no threat of suicide,” Mina clarified in her post.
Furthermore, the 28-year-old revealed that her “actions and remarks went too far” after departing from AOA. “However, I want to release the voice video, not transcripts. But the video, I don’t think anyone has it, right?” she continued.
“There were so many edited parts in the transcript, and I promised to forgive everything after receiving a sincere apology. However, it didn’t seem like a sincere apology from my point of view, and the 10 years were too long and painful for me,” Mina said about the alleged bullying incident.
The “Hospital Ship” actress further revealed that her actions, including her text messages, were more violent because she was so vengeful that she wanted to pay back with the same treatment. She confessed, “The remarks and actions that I shouldn’t have done went overboard.”
“I also hurt many people. I’m sorry, but now I’m not tied to the past. I’m going to close my social media for the time being. If I have a chance, I hope that we’ll have another space to talk again,” Mina concluded her post. At the time of writing, her Instagram page has been deactivated.
In related news about AOA, Seolhyun with Jimin made headlines recently after a recent photo of the BFFs went viral on online communities. The two girls were spotted photographed together with Lee Hyori’s husband, Lee Sang Soon.
This is the first time that the public saw the former leader of the girl group following her departure and also her retirement back in July last year. And while the two’s friendship was previously viewed in a negative light due to the ongoing controversy, it appears that netizens have also changed their perspective about the celebrity duo.
Most of them left positive reactions to the post, including “I’m glad Seolhyun stuck with Jimin during these times”, “I worry more for Jimin than Kwon Mina,” and also, “Seolhyun is a loyal friend who doesn’t leave her friends.”
