Former AOA member (South Korean Pop group), Kwon Mina (image above), recently opened up about her experience being bullied during her time AOA and even as a trainee. The bully was their own group leader, Shin Jimin.

Mina publicly announced this on her Instagram page, explaining the situation and how she even attempted suicide due to the bullying. Some things Jimin said to/about her include: “that’s the scary b*tch who pretends to be a fool”, “I f***ing hate (your body) lose some weight”, "don't cry, you're ruining the mood" when Mina's dad passed away". According to Mina, these are the "weaker" remarks Jimin said to her. She also slapped her during their trainee days because Mina "was at the front" and cursed her. More information about the incidents can be found on Mina's Instagram posts. Jimin even claimed Mina's words were "fiction" after uploading her experiences online. 

The worst part of it all? Mina had to keep silent for the 10 years in order not to harm the reputation of the group and company. In order to protect their image, she had to put up a front when interacting with Jimin. Imagine the pain she must've felt, pretending to enjoy her time with her bully.

Although Mina has already left the group, Jimin's actions do not earn her the role of  being a Kpop idol, someone who is idolized by youths. Kpop idols need to uphold the right values and clearly Jimin is lacking the very basic ones. Action needs to be taken against Jimin, either by the FNC Ent. or by the law. Nobody, no matter of what status, should be faced with such verbal and physical abuse. Additionally, action should also be taken towards FNC Ent. should they have known about the situation without doing anything.

What Mina went through was horrible, and no one else should be treated as such. Many are concerned for the safety of the other AOA members and we do not want to have such worries anymore. Kick Jimin out of AOA and take legal action against her. 

Finally, let's all make an effort to support Mina for having the bravery to open up about the issue and not leave her actions in vain.
