[TW] Former AOA Member Mina’s Agency Says She Doesn’t Want A Police Investigation

Woori Actors has responded to the reports of a police investigation into former AOA member Mina’s allegations of bullying.

On August 13, JoongAng Ilbo reported that someone had sent in a request for investigation to the Seoul Gangnam Police Station. According to the report, an unnamed person sent in a civil complaint to a public sinmungo (a place for citizens to voice complaints to the government) on August 9, which was then forwarded to the Gangnam Police Station. The request asked for a complete investigation into Mina’s statement that she was bullied during her time in AOA.Collapse )
