On July 3, Mina took to her personal Instagram account to detail her experience of years of harassment from fellow AOA member Jimin. On July 4, Mina shared that Jimin and the other members of AOA had come to her home to discuss what had happened, and she would not be speaking on the matter anymore.
Her agency has now released a statement, which reads as follows:
Hello, this is Woori Actors.
We would like to give a statement regarding what has occurred regarding our actress, Mina.
On July 3, we were contacted by many reporters and fans due to what occurred on social media. All calls that were made to the company were transferred directly to the mobile phone of our agency’s CEO, who personally responded to these calls.
The reason we did not release an official statement while we received and responded to over 100 calls is because we could not give an opinion on what had occurred to Mina before she moved to our agency. The reason we continued to respond to calls without an official statement is because we wanted to explain the current situation to those who were worried to reassure people and dissuade speculative articles from being written.
Our first and second priority were at all times the mental stability and safety of our actress. We wish to take this opportunity to thank the reporters who understood that and did their best to be clear and accurate with their reporting.
Mina is currently resting. She was able to endure difficult times thanks to the support and affection she has received from many people. For the time being, our agency will do our best to help Mina receive psychological treatment so that she can return in good health.
Due to this incident, Mina is worried about whether she will be able to continue her dream as an actress. We promise to do our best to ensure that Mina can regain her health and be an actress who can reach her full potential.
We wish to ask for your continued love and support for Mina.
Also, we are aware that there are malicious rumors and slander occurring in many places. That will result in more victims. We sincerely ask for these rumors to stop so that there are no more victims.
Lastly, we wish to apologize for causing concern, and once again, we sincerely thank you for the love and support you have shown for Mina.
