The management company apologized to AOA’s Mina after she cut her hand by suicide, but insisted that Mina owed 3 billion won still had to pay the company: Death also can’t solve anything!
According to a report from Korean media on the afternoon of August 9, FNC Entertainment officially spoke out after a series of problems related to Mina (former member of AOA).
Here is the full statement from the company:
“This is FNC Entertainment.
We are sincerely apologetic about causing concern with the many unfortunate matters related to AOA, and we apologize for causing great worry and inconvenience. Over anything, we hope that Kwon Mina, who is going through a difficult time, will quickly recover her health, and we extend a deep apology.
We apologize for the delay in the agency’s statement. We also deeply apologize for failing to have carefully taken care of the relationship between the members. We have contemplated and hesitated several times about clearly delivering the agency’s stance on this matter. The members have also been spending the days with frustration over the criticism and misunderstandings about them. We have also been well aware of the fact that there is a lot of criticism regarding the agency and the members.
Though we repeatedly contemplated revealing our stance, we decided that the recovery of Kwon Mina’s health is the current priority.
We concluded that explaining and refuting the things that are being said and publicly deciding on what is right and wrong in this situation will only produce more sensational issues and will not contribute to resolving the situation. We have also discouraged the AOA members from making individual statements even though they had wished to. We came to the conclusion that showing each of their statements in front of the public and having fights occur over those statements were not the right ways of resolving the Regarding the matters mentioned in Kwon Mina’s social media posts, such as payment (3 billion won ) , we have been strictly abiding by industry standards, and if there is any potential problem, we will take all legal responsibility.
Once again, with a sincere heart, we wish for Kwon Mina to quickly recover her health, and we will work hard for a smooth resolution. We ask the public to support and cheer on Kwon Mina so she can return in good health.”
Meanwhile, Mina’s current agency Woori Actors has stated that she is currently pending release from the hospital after having allegedly attempted suicide on the night of August 8.
