Claims of HYBE “Erasing” NEWJEANS Stirs Controversy

The latest controversy surrounding HYBE has fans concerned about the treatment of NEWJEANS. This stems from their exclusion from an upcoming Grammy Museum exhibition, despite their rising popularity and achievements.

The Controversy

Fans noted that NEWJEANS was missing from the promotional materials for the “HYBE: We Believe in Music” exhibit at the Grammy Museum, which features other HYBE artists.

This omission has led to accusations of HYBE attempting to undermine the group … Fueling ongoing rumours of internal conflicts between ADOR’s CEO Min Hee-Jin and HYBE.

Fan Reactions

Social media exploded with disappointment and frustration, as fans voiced their concerns and demanded better treatment for NEWJEANS. Many believe this exclusion is a sign of deeper issues within the company regarding the group’s management.

The omission by HYBE is shocking considering NEWJEANS made history as the first K-pop act to win Group of the Year at the 2024 Billboard Women in Music Awards. Established in 2007, the awards honour women who have made significant contributions to the music industry over the past year.

NEWJEANS has achieved remarkable success by landing five songs on the Billboard Hot 100 and reaching the top of the Billboard 200 with their hit album Get Up.
