Speaking out is just as hard as the courage it takes to endure and survive bullying so this is really such a difficult story to hear come to light. Popular girl’s group AOA is all over K-news this weekend after former member Mina (Kwon Min Ah) went public via multiple lengthy SNS posts alleging a decade’s long bullying she suffered from one member the group leader Jimin and solely targeted at her. Like, WTF is wrong with that girl if this is true. It was so bad and so pervasive Mina attempted to slit her write multiples times to end her suffering. She was not allowed to cry when her father was in the hospital with late stage cancer, was told she was a downer after her dad died, was called stupid and useless frequently, was forced to be respectful to Jimin as the unni and leader, and was basically the target of verbal aggressions both micro and macro. So far the agency and the other group members have not made a statement but this may mark the end of AOA as a group which has seen three member departures in the last four years including Mina in 2019. If what Mina is alleging is all true, I just want to give her a big hug and tell her to love herself and not let this define her or mar the rest of her life.
