According to an exclusive report from News1, Kwon Mina recently decided to end her contract with Woori Actors after a series of consultations with them earlier this month. Kwon Mina signed an exclusive contract with Woori Actors back in early July, but has left the company after just 3 months. An official from Woori Actors later confirmed the news.
After a series of careful discussions with Kwon Mina, our contract with her has been terminated.
Kwon Mina plans to take a rest for a while.

Woori Actors ended their relationship with Kwon Mina on September 21 after they finished delivering her the gifts her fans sent to the agency in celebration for her birthday.
Mina also posted on her official fancafe following the release of the news.
Hello, this is Mina.
Woori Actors and I parted ways after my birthday, so I’m worried that if you send a letter to them now, I won’t receive it…
I’m sure everyone has a lot of questions, and I have a lot to say, but right now, I can’t say everything. Please wait just a little longer. I’m thankful, and sorry.

Earlier in the year, Kwon Mina revealed the series of bullying she underwent during her time in AOA, specifically targeting Jimin, but also implicating the other members. Jimin ultimately decided to leave AOA and retire from the entertainment industry due to the backlash she received.
