Mina has finally exploded at the malicious commenters.
On January 18, Mina lashed out at a netizen who constantly harassed her for picking Jimin out without any proof. She posted the screen captures of the messages sent by a netizen who uses the nickname “a5aforever” and Seolhyun and Jimin’s photo as his profile picture.
The message he sent read, “If this is your own space, just talk about yourself. Do you think people like AOA, Sulli, that top actress, CEO Han Sung Ho are glad that you talk about them? You take a jab at everyone, and now you’re saying you’re just going to do as you please because this is your space? You ruined so many people through your SNS, and now you’re saying you can’t handle the comments? Do you know how many people have to bear with comments because of you?”
In response, Mino left a lengthy message on her post.
“Recently, I’m getting to know good people and good work. I’m having fun and spending day by day realizing I’m getting better as I do work I like, such as taking photoshoots and making cream. But for some reason, in the last few days, there have been a lot of people who are talking about what happened back in July and August in the comments and through mY DMs. I don’t want to think about it or even reply, so I just blocked and erased them. But yesterday, an article came out, and I got a lot of nasty comments. I wasn’t mad about the article, but I got mad about the malicious comments. I understand if the bad comments were about the article. I could even erase them because there are a lot of people who support me. But they picked out the situation that I’m the most sensitive about. The people that support ‘that person’ just straight-up cursed me out. People said I made her into a murderer without any proof. More and more Koreans and foreigners used a translator to call me a murderer and a crazy person with delusions and lies. I erased them while taking medicine because I was so upset, and I bore with it all because it was past the point of being hurt. Isn’t it time to stop talking about it? I really, really want to stop hearing about that incident and that person. The reason why I didn’t include proof is because it would get loud again, and there’s no reason to bring it up again even if it didn’t end as best as I hoped. I didn’t even want to bring it back up. I figured if I did this much, I should also put it behind me. But that person’s fan kept cursing me and kept hounding me about proof again and again and again. If they really are on her side, why do they want proof? Are they idiots? Or do you really think everything I said was delusional? If it was all a lie, I should’ve been reported and gone to jail. And then I saw this Korean person’s comment (the one she posted in the screenshot). I guess they are at least in their 30s or 40s because they talked informally to me from the beginning and are using my name and other artists’ names blatantly. I replied to them, and they said we should talk through a DM… but no, I don’t think so. Do you think people slit their wrists for fun? She never had any reason to slit her wrist because of me. I did it, and I tried so many times because of her. Other people also comment like this, and I guess I should fulfill at least 1% of their wishes. You are talented at making people angry. Also, from now on, I’m going to be deleting and blocking all comments like this. Stop talking to me about this. I emphasize once again that I was a victim who had to bear with it for 10 years. I felt sorry for myself. Don’t say she is getting cursed out because of me. Don’t say I’m a murderer. Don’t ask if I feel bad for her. I haven’t wronged her, but I’m getting the same amount of hate as the person who wronged me for 10 years. We’ll figure it out by ourselves – why do I have to take responsibility for her? The person who has to receive something is sitting here writing another explanation. I’m a person too. Do you think I enjoy this, pretending I’m okay? No, it’s really hard. So please stop.”
She then posted a photo of her medical diagnosis that read, “The patient continued to present symptoms such as severe depression, emotional ups and downs, anxiety, anxiety, insomnia, and suicidal thoughts from February 27, 2016, to March 20,2018, and under the previous diagnosis, he was treated with medications and interviews at the hospital. The patient was a group activity singer at the time of hospital treatment and repeatedly displayed psychological stress due to harassment and verbal violence from the leader, resulting in worsening symptoms and constant recurrence. The patient is currently in drug treatment at other mental health medicine hospitals, but the patient is believed to remain in a psychologically unstable state, as suicide attempts and panic attacks persist.”
After Mina posted these two posts, netizens started to show concern over her mental health, suggesting her to halt her social media activities. Here are some of the comments: “Why is she still using social media like this. This isn’t healthy by any means.” “She needs more therapy/help before returning to social media, this is just repetitive.” “Mina, please stay strong!” “Just focus on the good and ignore all the hate comments.”
