In 2020, Jimin, who was still a member of the AOA at the time, was embroiled in a scandal with former AOA member Mina after the latter accused her of being the perpetrator of bullying. Jimin eventually retired from the group and announced his retirement from the entertainment industry.

The aftermath of her retirement became embarrassing as the problem didn’t end even after a year, even after Jimin quit social media or the public.

However, Osen revealed that in Jimin’s darkest time, it was Lee Hyori who first contacted the idol.

Osen reported: “While Jimin has had its most difficult times, it was Lee Hyori who sent her a message first. Even though they had no relationship before, Lee Hyori felt sorry for her younger (hoobae) and reached out for her. “

They continued: “Jimin dropped everything and flew to Jeju Island where she lived with Lee Hyori and was able to regain her strength.”
