Jimin, who has halted all her activities since leaving AOA, also parted ways with FNC Entertainment. Will she make her comeback? Or will she retire?
On the 13th, FNC Entertainment announced that their contract with AOA’s Jimin had ended as of 12th. “We would like to express our gratitude to Jimin, who has been with us for the past nine years,” they wrote. “Although our relationship has come to an end, we hope that you send her warm encouragement for her future.”
In 2020, former AOA member Mina confessed that she was bullied by Jimin for the past 10 years, shocking everyone. As the controversy snowballed, FNC Entertainment announced Jimin’s departure not only from the group but also from the entertainment industry.
Jimin has immured herself since then, but on the 8th, she surprised her fans by posting on her Instagram for the first time since leaving the group. She shared a brand-new song called “Suddenly” and wrote, “surprise gift for my dearest. out now. link in bio. #happyjiminday.”
As Jimin officially parted ways with her label, attention focuses on what moves she’ll choose next.
