Former AOA member-actress Kwon Mina is preparing to start a business.
Kwon Mina told Money Today on Oct 31st, “I plan to open an online shopping mall in January~February next year.”
She explained, “I’m preparing an online shopping mall. I’ll also launch a brand. The brand’s name is Seoul345, and it’ll handle a wide range of products such as clothing, basic cosmetics, miscellaneous goods and limited editions.”
She added, “I’m in charge of the design and concept myself.”
Kwon Mina has recently left her main job for a while to focus on learning business. In July, she participated in marketing and idea planning at Cafe 345 located in Seogyo-dong, Seoul.
Kwon Mina debuted in 2012 with AOA’s first single “Angels’ Story”. The following year, she showed her presence as an actress by playing Yoon Jin-yeong in KBS2’s “Adolescence Medley”. Afterwards, she appeared in MBC’s “Hospital Ship” and KBS’ “Queen of Mystery 2”.
Kwon Mina left the group in 2020 due to AOA’s leader Shin Ji-min’s harassment and is taking up the career as a soloist. Shin Ji-min also left the group and the entertainment industry, but recently returned through JTBC’s audition program “The Second World”.
