Early, today a source from FNC Entertainment shared, “AOA will not appear at the Wonder Woman Festival. We asked the organizers for their understanding.”
The Wonder Woman Festival is a music festival where speakers from various fields begin discussions about how to enjoy youth. AOA was included in the line-up. They will no longer be appearing, this could be potentially due to the recent controversy over former member Jimin.
Former AOA member Mina took to Instagram on July 3 to share multiple posts. She alleged that Jimin had bullied her for years during her time in the group. Mina later revealed that Jimin had visited her in person to talk things out and apologize following her posts. She said that even though she had decided to accept Jimin’s apology, she was unsure of whether it had been sincere.
In addition to apologizing to Mina in person, Jimin went on to share a public apology on Instagram on July 4. Mina responded to the apology with her now-deleted post.
FNC Entertainment announced on July 5 that Jimin had left AOA and would halt all of her activities in the entertainment industry.
