Kwon Mina, AOA’s former member, appeared on a talk show for the first time after 3 years and honestly shared her stories.
In the evening of September 1, Kwon Mina appeared as a guest on a talk show called “복받으쇼” which was released on Youtube channel “점점TV”.
She recalled a terrible memory during her school days: “A friend introduced a boy to me so I followed that friend and ended up being sexually harassed by a bad guy in an abandoned house.”
She trembled and said, “I said that I wanted to leave, but they hit me with a beer bottle and continued to do that for more than 4 hours. After that, I was raped. It left me with a big trauma, and since then, I feel scared whenever I see a muscular man. When they released me, I had to crawl home. I didn’t want my mom to know it, so I ran away from home for 3 days. I felt like falling into a ditch. That bad guy even bragged about his crime. I reported the case, but the only punishment he received was being sent to the juvenile detention center. Therefore, I was so afraid that he would come back and take revenge on me.”
“The investigation will be expired in 2023, but I’m not hoping for this case to end. That guy had married and already had 3 children. He did once call me and said that he wanted to talk to me. However, his words made me feel creepy. He said, “I think we have a big misunderstanding; I was just a neighbor to you, wasn’t I?”
After telling more stories, including the bullying scandal and her memories with Sulli, Kwon Mina burst into tears and said, “I don’t know how to receive love because I grew up with no love at all.”
