AOA’s Hyejeong Updates Instagram With A Message To Fans After The Bullying Controversy

She’s the first to speak up on Instagram.

All of the members of AOA have remained quiet on social media ever since the bullying controversy arose where former member Mina revealed that she had been bullied by Jimin for years.

Hyejeong became the first to update her Instagram, where she marked the end of her recent drama, My Unfamiliar Family.

She uploaded a photo of a small celebration that she had in her van for the end of her filming that was set up by her fans.

She revealed that she felt cautious about updating her social media during this “difficult” time but wanted to thank everyone who supported her during the drama.

I’m a bit cautious to write a message during this difficult time but I wanted to make sure to sincerely thank all of the actors and staff that I met during filming, as well as the Elvis who continue to cheer me on with trust and love.

She also left a message where she vowed to look out for her own health and those around her. She wants to learn from this experience to become a better person to her peers.

I will work hard to be physically and emotionally healthier and take better care of those around me. Also, I’ll learn more and become a better person.

— Hyejeong

Hyejeong and Mina have known each other since they were just trainees preparing to debut with AOA. After 7 years of promoting together, Mina decided to leave the group but recently confessed that she was a victim of bullying even before they debuted.

Mina also recently updated her Instagram with a concerning message about not trusting anyone.

엘비스 여러분 따뜻했던 3월부터 촬영을 시작해서 무더운 지금까지 5개월동안 열심히 촬영했던 아는건 별로 없지만 가족입니다가 드디어 오늘 마지막회네요! 어려운 시기에 글을 쓰기 조심스럽지만 그래도 촬영을 하면서 만났던 모든 배우님들과 스텝분들 그리고 저를 항상 응원해주시고 많은 믿음과 사랑을 준 엘비스에게도 꼭 감사의 마음을 전하고 싶었어요.. 전 이제 서영이에서 혜정으로 돌아오면서 앞으로 몸도 마음도 더 건강할 수 있도록 노력하고 또 제 주변을 더 챙길 수 있도록 노력하겠습니다. 그리고 더 배우고 성장하는 사람이 될께요 모두 행복한 일만 가득하셨으면 좋겠습니다.

Elvis, I started working hard on filming since the warmer days of March to the recent hotter days for 5 months, and My Unfamiliar Family is finally airing our last episode!

I’m a bit cautious to write a message during this difficult time but I wanted to make sure to sincerely thank all of the actors and staff that I met during filming, as well as the Elvis who continue to cheer me on with trust and love.

As I let go of Seo Young and return to being Hyejeong, I will work hard to be physically and emotionally healthier and take better care of those around me. Also, I’ll learn more and become a better person.

I hope everyone’s lives can be filled with happiness.
