Singer Minty has made a stance on recent suspicions of her age manipulation.

On October 10, Minty's agency CoronaX Entertainment wrote, "We decided that there was concern that this could cause even more grief to fans who trust and love Minty, so we're releasing an accurate statement on the false rumors."

They continued, "It is true that Minty is Sorina, Alpaca Production's CEO and the producer of GSA. She has worked as a composer since a young age, and she started her company after receiving an investment offer."

As for age manipulation, they wrote, "Last year, Minty applied to 'High School Rapper [2]' as a contestant born in the year 2002. At the time, Minty wanted to reveal her real age multiple times, but due to the internal situation and pressure, she had no choice but to stay silent." They added, "Furthermore, Minty's actual age is not 37, but 28 (26 in international reckoning)." 

Previously, Minty drew attention through 'High School Rapper 2' and later released her debut single 'You Do'. However, some have argued that what Minty wore with the letters,'Eat Me', in a released video was taken from a Lolita concept. 

Minty said, "Each line has a meaning, so I want you to think deeply." "The filming was done by a friend of Eggman's friend. It cost 140,000 won, prepaid 3 month wage." She added, "It took 12 hours from shooting till editing."

In addition, "I tried to build my own beauty, but I heard that it was difficult," she said, "It may seem childish and creepy. But I'll continue. I'll keep my own music."

Below is the full statement from Minty's agency:

Hello, this is Minty's agency.

Recently, Minty has been spending each day with a heavy heart due to the rumors surrounding her. Due to her fear of hurting her family and fans, she wanted to let this event pass by quietly. However, we decided that there was concern that this could cause even more grief to fans who trust and love Minty, so we're releasing an accurate statement on the false rumors.

1. It is true that Minty is Sorina, Alpaca Production's CEO and the producer of GSA. She has worked as a composer since a young age, and she started her company after receiving an investment offer. However, about two years ago, she entrusted the management of GSA to Roots Entertainment due to various issues and health problems, and she is currently running many companies in this method.

2. Currently, Minty is suffering from an eating disorder due to severe stress. Following support from her fans, she began to receive counseling beginning in October, but she is still unable to eat a regular meal.

3. Last year, Minty applied to "High School Rapper [2]" as a contestant born in the year 2002. At the time, Minty wanted to reveal her real age multiple times, but due to the internal situation and pressure, she had no choice but to stay silent. Minty was an unknown artist at the time, and it was a hopeless situation in which every opportunity was valuable. Minty has been suffering from the psychological burden of the situation everyday until now, and she's currently receiving counseling.

4. Furthermore, Minty's actual age is not 37, but 28 (26 in international reckoning). The misunderstanding about [Minty] being in her 30s seems to have occurred because she started producing since she was 24 (22 in international reckoning). This [rumor ] is clearly not true. Besides her age, every side of Minty has been genuine, and although the timing is different, everything in Minty's lyrics comes from her own experience.

Finally, Minty will personally give her stance on the rumors again through a YouTube video at noon today (October 10 KST), and regardless of the truth, we deeply apologize for causing fans to worry.
