On August 6, former AOA member/actress Mina confessed to attempting self-harm and called out FNC for their replies to Jimin through an Instagram post.
In Mina‘s post, the singer/actress shows newly sewn stitches over a series of distressing cut marks along her wrist. She adds in a lengthy comment, “There was something that happened recently over KakaoTalk messages with a rep from FNC. The news outlet reports said that she ‘begged forgiveness’, so I sent a message to an FNC rep saying, ‘Begged forgiveness? Please don’t lie’. They then responded, ‘I’ll check’, and then a long time later they apparently felt that in their eyes, she did beg forgiveness. How can I accept a proper apology from someone who comes over with her eyes so big and clear, asking me where my knife is, saying she doesn’t remember, staring at me right in the eyes with that expression? I might as well give up.“
Mina also addes, “I was so shocked over the FNC rep’s KakaoTalk that I tried to cut myself again, and my manager’s younger sibling came looking for me early in the morning to take me to the hospital.“
Mina then went on to vent her frustrations at a therapist that FNC Entertainment hired for her, claiming that the therapist illegally leaked personal information about her to their other clients. She also expressed her anger at suspicions that former AOA leader Jimin might “return to promotions” once “things quieted down”.
As Mina confessed to attempting self-harm and called out FNC, she finished by directing a warning to her former agency, stating, “The right time for a proper apology has long passed, and I would rather that you please just be more considerate of your trainees, your agency artists, singers, actors and actresses, all of the sunbaenims, so that there won’t be another person like me who suffers ever again.“
Back on August 5, Mina was seen sharing a past photo of her days in AOA, writing, “Jinri, I miss you..”. Many suspected that the “Jinri” mentioned in the post indicates the late idol/actress Sulli.
Meanwhile, earlier this month, Mina accused former AOA leader Jimin of severely bullying her during her idol days. Afterward, Jimin announced her departure from AOA as well as from the entertainment industry.
