Group ILUV denied the claim of former member Min-ah (Shin Min-ah) that she was bullied by members.
On the 16th, WKS ENE of ILUV’s agency announced the official position of Shin Min-ah’s disclosure. The agency said, “For reasons of health, Min-ah has been resting since January, and the company wanted to give her a break for a new project, but she continued to allow her to extend her vacation because she needed more time to recover.” “I am sorry for this.”
The agency said, “Our six members of WKS ENE and ILUV make it clear that what she claims is never true, and Min-ah refuses to face her, so we cannot know for what reason, but suffer from mental illnesses such as severe insomnia. Because I am posting on my SNS account, I hope that I will understand and refrain from actively responding and hope that my health will be restored. This is shocking and hurting, and in particular, even members who haven’t lived in the hostel can’t understand why they are nominated as members,”
“Even so, for acts that continue to spread groundless content and damage the image and reputation of their artists, we have to take separate legal measures to protect the artists,” the agency said.
Meanwhile, ILUV is planning to debut as a new girl group called Botopass in August after member maintenance.
Min-ah, a member of our company, recently disseminated the false fact that all 6 members of ILUV harassed her by violence and assault, seriously undermining the reputation of our artists and existing members looking for a different way. I want to reveal the fact.
Min-ah has been on a break since January for health reasons, and the company wanted to give Min-ah a break for a new project, but this happened when she continued to allow extended vacation because she needed more time to recover. Sorry about that.
All six members of WKS ENE and ILUV make it clear that what she claims is never true, and Min-ah is refusing to face her, so she can’t tell why, but she suffers from mental illness such as severe insomnia. Since I am posting it on my SNS account, I hope that my health will be restored by understanding and restraining active responses. Six ILUV existing members were shocked and hurt by the dissemination of one person’s ill-fated claims that they were suffering from mental health problems. It is an incomprehensible position.
Nevertheless, for the act of damaging the artist’s image and reputation by continuing to spread unfounded content, it is inevitable to take separate legal measures to protect the artist. We also ask. Please refrain from speculative articles or citations about unconfirmed content, and malicious comments based on this, and if it is a misunderstanding, please voluntarily drop it down.
We apologize for the fact that Min-ah’s claim was delayed because the company needed to confirm the facts again. Thank you.
