On September 8, a media outlet Dispatch revealed in an exclusive a 128-minute long transcript and a series of text messages between former AOA members, Kwon Mina and Shin Jimin, that narrates what happened from 2020 up until now.
After the article was released, Former AOA Mina immediately returned to Instagram to personally address the earlier report by "Dispatch."
Mina started with a greeting and she described herself as having been continuously stirring due to poor judgment. She also stated that she will be living as her honest self. However, she was just pretending to be tough and she was acting obnoxious. That is why she temporarily deleted her Instagram account.
Former AOA member Mina tells it all with her Instagram post
She continued that there is a real reason behind all this. She promised in her post that she won't tell any lies, including bad and shocking words. She said that she sent emails and left her number to the reporters at Dispatch after reading the article.
Because of the report, she decided to talk a little more from her perspective. She recalled what she had said in the chat and who she texted. She didn't know if it was whether the FNC team leader, manager, or someone from Jimin's family tipped the chat.
Regardless of who it was, Mina just wanted to reveal the entire conversation, together with her chat with manager Kim, from beginning to the end.
