Kwon Mina’s former agency Woori Actors provided a statement on its official Instagram page:
“Hello! This is Woori Actors.
Though many have already seen news articles and Kwon Mina’s fan cafe, we are informing everyone that Kwon Mina has terminated her contract with Woori Actors.
This decision reflects the opinions of Kwon Mina’s doctor, who hopes that she will be in a more free and relaxed state during her rest.
However, until she finds a new agency and decides to resume her activities, the company will provide her with unconditional assistance if there is anything she needs from the company.
In a short amount of time, we were able to witness just how much love Kwon Mina has been receiving from her fans. We sincerely thank you.
We hope you continue to love her as much as you do now.”
Kwon Mina wrote to her fans through her official fancafe page. The following is a full translation of her letter:
“Hello, this is Mina.
Since Woori Actors and I parted ways after my birthday, I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to receive letters if you all sent them to the company..
I’m sure you have a lot of questions. I have a lot to say as well, but I can’t say everything.. please wait a little longer. Thank you, and I’m sorry.
Anyways, do not send anything that is related to me to Woori Actors anymore,, and since my manager graciously told me that they will receive them and deliver them to me, please do not worry.”
