The conflict between AOA’s Kwon Mina and Shin Jimin, who sparked a bullying controversy within the group, entered a new phase as AOA members’ texts were revealed through a media outlet. In the texts, Shin repeatedly apologized, to which Kwon replied with threats and verbal abuse. Last year, Kwon confessed that Jimin bullied her throughout her AOA days through her Instagram. Branded as a perpetrator, Jimin left the group and the industry for good. However, Kwon’s revelations continued, receiving mixed reactions from the people. After the texts were revealed, Mina expressed her frustration, saying, “I don’t know who tipped off, but it’s probably Shin Jimin’s people. Just reveal everything from start to end.” In response, AOA’s agency FNC Entertainment remained silent on the matter and stated, “We’re checking into facts.”
