Former AOA member Mina's alleged comments about Seolhyun and Chanmi are drawing attention.
On August 13, Mina's alleged comments in a chatroom dedicated to her are making headlines. She's known to have called out Seolhyun and former AOA member Jimin, who allegedly bullied her during her time with the girl group, in particular in a concerning social media post, and netizens are now speculating the reason why she unfollowed Seolhyun and Chanmi on her Instagram, which she's now deleted.
The below screencaptures have been posted in online communities under the title "The reason why Seolhyun and Chanmi were unfollowed. Screencapture of the 'solitude chatroom.'" In them, a user alleged to be Mina states the following -
"The reason I unfollowed Kim Seolhyun and Kim Chanmi? I really cared for Seolhyun. When Shin Jimin unni spoke badly of Seolhyun or the other members, I never agreed with her.
Of course, I'm sure she didn't like that about me either. Because I was sincerely worried, I gave sincere advice to Seolhyun. But in the end, [Seolhyun] said she didn't care what happened and just said she hated the moment.
She never reached out to me once when I was going through a hard time. Seolhyun's smart. And yes, she's a bystander. She's clever.
Chami would criticize Shin Jimin unni in front of me, but behind me, she would soothe Shin Jimin unni. She's young.
What was what Chanmi asked me in the end? 'Don't you have any good memories?' I said, 'No, I don't.' Then I told her to get out, so I can receive an apology from Shin Jimin unni. I know Chanmi's young. That's why I accepted it when she complained, and I understood when she [acted that way].
When Shin Jimin unni left, they all left together to comfort her. It was always like that. In front of me, they would speak badly of Shin Jimin unni."
In related news, Mina and her label chose not to pursue an official investigation into the bullying controversy.
