Former AOA member, Kwon Mina recently took to her Instagram to call out the death threats and hate messages she’s been receiving via DM.
Not only did Mina share the raw screenshots of the hate messages, but she told the haters to “shut up” in the caption.
But fans must’ve shown great concern for her well-being after the call-out because Mina just posted an update reassuring fans that she’s all right.
Many people were worried about me after I exposed those DMs… I only feel hurt and remember the things that are said by people I know and those around me… I’m not affected by insults thrown at me by strangers.
She explained to fans that dealing with hate is all a part of the job and that she was prepared for it when she entered the industry.
I always thought it was something I had to deal with in this profession, so no matter what strangers said to me after my debut, I just laughed at it and pitied them…
But she revealed that her perception changed a few months back and it became a lot harder to handle.
But a few months ago, it started hurting and bothering me for the first time, making me want to cry, report everyone, and feel resentment…
Luckily, Mina shared that she’s doing better now.
I’m doing a lot better now. DMs like that are erased from my memory more quickly now, and it doesn’t faze me anymore just like before.
According to Mina, she only exposed the DMs to get it out of her system, but she also acknowledges why fans are worried given her controversies in the last few months.
I only posted the DMs to let out my anger, but after all my behavior in the last few months, people have been excessively worried about me…
She concluded her post with an update to fans about how she’s actually been doing lately.
I’m not really keeping in touch or meeting with the people around me yet. I don’t want to get hurt again. But I’m receiving treatment, avoiding things here and there, and even trying new things. I’m getting a lot better, so don’t worry about me.
Best wishes to Mina and her ongoing recovery!
