MINTY Official

Are you an avid viewer of Mnet "High School Rapper"?

If you did, you might recall, Minty, who had previously appeared on the second season of "High School Rapper". As suggested by the title, participants of the show have to be attending high school. This means that they will be of Korean age, 17 to 19.

However, many were shocked when they found out that Minty's real age is 28! Previously, it was said that she had applied for the show as a high school student who was born in 2002, making her 18 years old (Korean age).

There had been suspicions of her actual age and on Oct. 10, her agency had released an official statement regarding the current situation.

They shared that rumors of her being older is true and during multiple occasions on "High School Rapper" Season 2, she had wanted to reveal her actually age. However, due to various difficult circumstances, Minty eventually was unable to do so.

The agency also clarified that Minty is also known as Sorina, who is the CEO of Alpaca Production as well as the producer of Girls' Alert. Minty has been working as a producer since a young age and established her own company after receiving investments. However, due to health issues, Minty had eventually passed the management of Girls' Alert to Root Entertainment.

I don't understand Korean, but with the help of english or french subtitles, I had the chance to appreciate many excellent Korean TV series and films; South Korea produces some of the finest TV dramas and films and thanks to subtitles, everyone can appreciate it 🙂
나는 한국어를 이해하지 못하지만 영어 또는 프랑스어 자막 덕분에 많은 훌륭한 한국 텔레비전 시리즈와 영화를 감상 할 기회를 얻었습니다. 한국은 최고의 텔레비전 드라마와 영화를 제작하고 자막 덕분에 모든 사람들이 그것을 감상 할 수 있습니다. (자동 번역 인터넷)
