Amidst the intense conflict between HYBE and its subsidiary label ADOR, the mother of one of the members of NewJeans had a phone interview with Ilgan Sports.

Member A’s mother, who was cautious about causing harm to the children, expressed her agony, saying, “I was really tormented, thinking that we caused this problem by sending unnecessary emails.”

A’s mother said, “On the day of the press conference by Min Hee Jin (ADOR), three mothers of NewJeans, including myself, went to HYBE. I was worried that Min Hee Jin would get into big trouble and that we would not be able to bridge the gap between HYBE and ADOR.”

A’s mother explained, “Park Ji-won (HYBE CEO) arrived about 20 minutes late, and other members of the management team arrived first. We couldn’t have a proper conversation about mediation, and they brought laptops and said, Min Hee Jin made these mistakes.'” She described the situation at the time.

Earlier, A’s mother, along with the parents of other NewJeans members, sent a mail to ADOR on March 31, pointing out the plagiarism issue of a debut group under HYBE’s subsidiary label BELIF LAB and demanded corrective actions. Min Hee Jin, the CEO, sent a mail to HYBE and BELIF LAB on April 3, including her opinions on the issue. ADOR sent another mail on April 16, stating that there was no response to the issue raised, and HYBE sent a reply mail to the first mail on April 22. After that, HYBE sent a reply mail to ADOR’s second mail on April 22 and started the process of auditing ADOR.

When asked if there was a suspicion that the NewJeans mothers were coerced by Min Hee Jin to send the mail, A’s mother said, “The same story was also told at HYBE. They showed us the contents of a chat between ADOR’s Assistant CEO A, and said that they know everything, which was very shocking.”

Furthermore, A’s mother said, “We asked Min Hee Jin about the concept photos of ILLIT, and our friends sent them saying, ‘Are these NewJeans’ new photos?’ But they said, ‘There is no ILLIT.’ It was strange. So the moms exchanged opinions and asked Min Hee Jin. It was clearly something we started.”

A’s mother said, “The statement in our email that ‘Bang Si Hyuk, the Chairman of HYBE, does not even greet the children’ is not only about our child, but other children as well. They had similar experiences after their debut. One child said they didn’t receive a greeting even when they were in the elevator with him. When we brought up that issue again, HYBE said, ‘Mothers, you must be mistaken. Chairman Bang Si Hyuk may have prosopagnosia (face blindness).'”

A’s mother said, “At that moment, I couldn’t say anything more, but after leaving, I thought, ‘If it’s prosopagnosia, shouldn’t he hear the sound? And even if he doesn’t recognize anyone, wouldn’t it be normal to greet someone?'” She expressed her distress.

A’s mother also said, “The HYBE staff talked about Min Hee Jin’s management of NewJeans during that meeting. While saying that this was a sensitive and cautious topic, they strongly urged us not to mention it to the children. But just one hour after leaving HYBE, articles about NewJeans’s management emerged. I thought, ‘What are these people doing?’ They talked about how much they cherish the children, but articles came out so quickly. I was puzzled.”

A’s mother said, “Later, Park Ji-won said to us, ‘Min Hee Jin did not share any material about NewJeans’ Tokyo Dome performance in June, but we have many professionals, so it will go well.’ He also said that they plan to give the members a long vacation after the Tokyo Dome performance.” She added, “I couldn’t ask how long the vacation would be, but Park said, ‘It takes about a year and a half to recruit a Grammy-winning producer, but we will try to do it as quickly as possible.’ So after coming out, the mothers discussed if the long vacation would be around that time. We said we would ask about it when we meet again.”

A’s mother emphasized, “We clearly stated to HYBE that we want to be with Min Hee Jin with NewJeans” and said that it was the unanimous belief of all five members’ mothers.

She then added, “We are actually worried. Without Ms. Min Hee Jin, won’t HYBE neglect the kids for a long time? Before this happened, we heard from Ms. Min that there were plans for a NewJeans world tour next year. But now, they’re talking about a long vacation….”

Meanwhile, a senior official at HYBE countered the mother’s claims, saying, “Saying they’ll give a long vacation doesn’t mean giving them time off to rest. Usually, idols have many activities after a comeback and then take a rest period. After that, they come back and work hard again, that’s what it means.”

He further explained, “It’s definitely not about suspending NewJeans’ activities or anything like that. HYBE will take special care of NewJeans and support them to become the best artists.”

“This so-called ‘attempt’ to claim ‘management rights’ (related to Min Hee Jn’s embezzlement allegations) has a lot of evidence. When this evidence is revealed in court, many people will know HYBE’s sincerity,” he concluded.
