While Shin Minah (stage name Minah), a former member of rookie group ILUV, revealed that she had been severely bullied by other members, attention is being paid to the other members.
Recently, Shin Minah exposed that the has been constantly bullied by other members except for Sooyeon. However, she didn’t name a particular member as her bully.
ILUV debuted as a seven-member group, but Minah, Sooyeon, Jiho, and Gahyun left the team. Now, there are only three members, Seoyeon, Cui Xiang, and Gahyun, left in the team. They are planning on re-debuting as a group Botopass.
Among the three, leader Seoyeon is known as the cousin of EXO’s Chen. Seoyeon once posted several pictures of her visit to EXO’s concert on her Instagram in 2017. At the time, she shared friendly “proof shots” of herself with Chen and other EXO members, becoming the hot topic among EXO fans.
Meanwhile, regarding the controversy over Shin Minah’s bullying, the group’s label, WKS ENE, gave on answer on July 16 that all claims are false.
They said, “We are trying to clarify our position because it is seriously damaging the reputation of existing members looking for a different path. We don’t know why Minah is refusing to meet us, but the existing members are shocked and hurt by the spread of one-sided and absurd allegations of a person who said herself is suffering from mental issues.”
