Kwon Mina, AOA’s former member, apologized for senđing abusive messages to Jimin.
On the evening of September 9, Kwon Mina wrote on her Instagram story: “Therefore, my remarks and actions went too far, regardless of the pain that I suffered after withdrawing from AOA.”
She explained, “I wanted to release a whole video with voice, not just a transcript. However, I think… there was no video recorded, was it? Many parts of the transcript have been edited, but I did say, “If I could receive a sincere apology, I would forgive everything”. I made that promise, but from my point of view, it didn’t seem to be a sincere apology at all. That 10 years had been too long and too painful for me.”
Kwon Mina apologized, “Since then, I have always wanted to give back what I had suffered from and was too eager to revenge; therefore, my remarks and actions went too far to the point that I sent abusive messages to Jimin. I apologize for having hurt a lot of people.”
She added, “I’m no longer bound in the past, and I will close all my SNS… If there is a chance, I want to meet and talk to you at another place.”
In addition, Kwon Mina refuted the claim that stated her mother threatened her ex-boyfriend; she said, “First of all, I checked all the photos and videos from Yoo (her ex). I also looked into its level of seriousness. Therefore, all of the evidence only showed my condition at that time. There were no words of threatening.”
Earlier, on September 8, Dispatch revealed the messages between Mina and Jimin, the dialog transcript of AOA’s meeting at Kwon Mina’s house on July 3 last year, and the abusive messages that Kwon Mina sent to Jimin from last year to this year.
According to the reports, Kwon Mina visited the funeral home because Jimin’s father had just passed away. The two talked and comforted each other, then resolved the conflict between them. However, after that, Kwon Mina suddenly posted more accusations on her SNS, and the members of AOA decided to gather at Kwon Mina’s house to talk. Although Kwon Mina agreed to resolve the conflict, she kept on posting on SNS again and again. In addition, Kwon Mina has consistently sent abusive messages to Jimin until recently.
Moreover, it was once reported that Kwon Mina sent “gapjil” messages, which is an expression referring to bossiness, to the staff when she was still an artist at FNC Entertainment.
