God FUCKKKKKK JYPE for letting her knee get so fucking bad that it's now affecting her mentally. I'm so mad.

I really hope that Mina will be ok and that she recovers well. God my heart breaks for her.

aww no, she's such a sweetheart. i hope she gets real time to rest and recover. feel better soon. :'(

I'm honestly shocked. I was expecting them to pull her from Singapore's concert cuz I knew her condition was worse than they were letting on, but if they're pulling her from the remaining dates than it most be really bad.

I'm more mad than I am sad. I'm happy they're letting take a long break, but for them to only do it after letting whatever she's going through fester for so long.. I'm outraged!

I just hope they give her all the time she needs now and to stop FUCKING UP THE GIRLS HEALTH.

Who am I kidding, I'm sad too.. my poor baby ;_;
Hope she recovers well.

i hope that jype really does get mina the best care possible. god, i don't love seeing 9-member girl groups drop down to 8, but i'll take 8-member twice any day if it means mina is actually getting quality mental health care. that said, i'm fully prepared for this hiatus to last months, so i just hope that the fandom is patient.

Aaawww this is a tricky illness, she definitely needs some rest

jfc what is even going on with her knee now if they are letting her sit out rest of tour. i hope she gets proper care (both physically and mentally) and this won't have longterm consequences for her health. i wish jype actually let her properly heal back when it was a minor issue.

I don't follow Twice closely so I don't know the whole story with her knee but I get so upset by how companies often allow significant injuries to get worse by not actually giving idols the time off they need to heal them (or even when they're bad enough to need surgery! they'll be denied time off even when they're at that point!). It really, really sucks because something like a knee injury really can impact the rest of your life and nothing is worth the sacrifice of your health. It's shocking to me how even in the most successful groups, even looking at it from the horrible idols-are-our-resource capitalist perspective, they don't consider idols' bodies as a valuable enough to be protected. They just grind people past the breaking point because even the most famous are only expected to last so long. :(

This is so sad. Anxiety is fucking rough and it's been essentially the scourge of my life (I don't have a panic disorder, but I have severe GAD) and hearing about others who suffer from it makes my heart ache. I hope she does whatever makes her feel good and healthy in the time she has off, and that she's with people who make her feel good. I also really hope that she's able to get the best care she possibly can (if that's what she wants to do).

I am genuinely so fucking pissed that jype made her do activities instead of letting her heal. They can’t claim to care about their artists’ mental health if they only allow them to sit out when the shit has truly hit the fan. Poor Mina. She deserves so much better.

I watched the DTNA performance with only 7 members and it made so sad. :(

Now JYPE sees the need to care for her health and full recovery? If they didn’t treat my girls like working machines and in the meantime allowed them to proper rest (who am I kidding? This is kpop) she wouldn’t be suffering so much. Mina is part of the dance line, so her knees are everything to her and sure will affect her mental health and increase her insecurities. She has always been a softie so it breaks my heart that she has to go through all this. Actually, anything related to Twice’s bad health or bad rumours spread about them have huge impact on how they work, bc they are NEVER allowed to seat out on bad situations. People tend to forget how very young they still are and I wouldn’t be surprised if Mina’s parents intervened for their girls since they’re always following her.

I hope she receives proper care

This description is horrifying and that is what they're telling the public???!

I hope she can recover both physically and mentally. Please take care Mina :(

My heart just broke a little for her reading that, wtf is JYPE even DOING
revedesnuages 11th-Jul-2019 11:47 am (UTC)
I hope no one at JYPE pressures her for a speedy recovery, I hope they give her all the time and treatment she needs. It’s terrible that it’s gotten to the point of severe anxiety before they let her take a break from promotions.
dior_chic 11th-Jul-2019 11:52 am (UTC)
I am annoyed with fans giving jype so much credit for looking out for her, it’s like guys - they’re the reason she’s dealing with this in the first place. They pushed her and the group too hard, that’s not ‘caring’

Also this description makes me think of Britney Spears, since she had a bad injury that affected her confidence in her dancing
:( even sadder knowing they both come from dancing backgrounds

Yeah Britney's dancing really took a hit after her knee injury. She was honestly fantastic at it before that.

I also thought of Sunny : (((((
lightframes 11th-Jul-2019 04:11 pm (UTC)
Yeah, this is the bare minimum they could do. It should have been addressed earlier.
kimbafierce 11th-Jul-2019 08:15 pm (UTC)
From the day they announced her absence from MS I've been blocking anyONE thanking JYPE for taking care of her health. Bitch where? They squeezed & squeezed & squeezed till she broke, and you're thanking them for that. Keep your BS out of my sight. I don't even believe they're the ones who "gave her time to rest", it's probably her parents who said enough is enough.

Imagine my shock - not really - when I read the new "rumors" - true I'm sure - that they're preparing Twice for another tour in Japan at the end of this year. This is the behavior of a company who prioritize their artists health.

Poor girl :(. I hope she will get the help she needs, and that JYP actually learn from this and let this group rest A LOT MORE.
theweebdream 11th-Jul-2019 01:38 pm (UTC)
Wow, this sounds really bad. I really hope she gets the proper help and time to heal. This is so fucked up.

lil_poisonfrog 11th-Jul-2019 01:49 pm (UTC)
This is honestly awful. Knee injuries can really fuck you up. My mother has had multiple knee surgeries in her 50s and she wasn't a dancer or athlete. I really hope she gets better

If this comes up at the concert I'm prob gonna cry lol
ursulavosyem 11th-Jul-2019 02:17 pm (UTC)
This sounds awful, I'm not shocked they let it get this bad, and it must be really bad if they're letting her sit out concert dates. I hope she gets all the time she needs to recover well <3

They’re “letting Mina rest” but you know anxiety/mental distress isn’t limited to just her. Jeongyeon and Sana have really struggled publicly, who knows the full extent of the mental anguish these poor girls deal with. They’re all still so young, I hope JYP can take better care of them before something bigger happens.
aridnili 11th-Jul-2019 04:39 pm (UTC)
Sana looked very skinny and frail in their last Pocari event. JY cried live once talking about their preparations and insane schedule and their company paint it as hard work while asking fans to buy even more of their stuff. JYPE is SME level of trash with their breadwinner GG and I think Twice situation is even worse than SNSD most busy years.
kenziekinz09 11th-Jul-2019 05:26 pm (UTC)
If I think of Soshi’s PEAK peak (mid 2009-2011) they were busy, but not the same kind of busy. Album promotions were longer and you had multiple singles from one album. Plus “social media” was doing a star call every once in a while and answering a handful of questions on UFO town. There was no “Soshi tv (TwiceTv) to shoot, Instagram to update, V lives...having that little bit of “downtime” in vans and waiting rooms and dorms when you’re not “on camera” is likely crucial.
kori_ya 11th-Jul-2019 05:06 pm (UTC)
Oh, poor Mina, I hope she will be better soon. :(
toast_is_burnin 12th-Jul-2019 02:28 pm (UTC)
Just adding my pointless comment of LET THESE WOMEN HAVE A F*CKING BREAK!! jype makes me so angry and the fact that mina had to have a break down in order to get help is so messed up.
