AOA Seolhyun Spotted Hanging Out with Shin Jimin at Lee Sang Soon's Exhibition
AOA's Seolhyun and former member Shin Jimin are known within the industry to be very good friends, and often showed off their friendship through their personal social media accounts. In fact, the two got even matching tattoos together back in November 2019 as a way to show just how close they are.
However, due to her bullying scandal with fellow former AOA member, Kwon Mina, Shin Jimin left the group and retired from the entertainment industry in 2020. As Seolhyun is a close friend of Shin Jimin, she also became tangled in the scandal. Seolhyun eventually took a hiatus from social media for several months until her return earlier this year in January.
