On the 7th, more eyewitnesses came forward in an online community about seeing Jimin out as well. One netizen wrote, "A while ago I saw her at a cafe. She came in with Seolhyun."
Another netizen replied to the post and stated, "I saw them for the first time out too but Seolhyun came first and Jimin came in last. She comes and goes all the time but she always greets me happily ㅋㅋㅋ. This is tmi but Jimin is pasty whiteㅋㅋㅋㅋ. She's pasty and skinny but there's nothing to worry. She seems to be doing well."
Netizens shared replies writing, "I'm so happyㅠㅠ" "I'm glad she's doing wellㅠㅠ" "Oh, I'm so glad to hear that. Perfect. All she has to do now is comeback" "Thank God" "Glad to hear she's living well."
Jimin's status was recently revealed through a media outlet in January who stated Jimin was living an isolated life after leaving AOA. She never met up with any acquaintances other than her manager. Close acquaintances also confirmed they weren't aware of Jimin's status, stating it was "unknown."
