[+632, -53] Wow ㅋㅋㅋㅋ kids that age are young enough to feel hurt when even a teacher ignores their greeting just once while passing by in the hallway... for Bang Shi Hyuk to have done that to them repeatedly, can you imagine how upset the kids must've felt to tell it to their parents?...

[+377, -32] This is so sad, Shi Hyuk-ah

[+270, -16] This is crazy ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Bang Shi Hyuk is exceeding any measure of imagination, how is he even running a company with how pathetically petty he is? ㅋㅋㅋ Not even acknowledging a greeting? Please just pass New Jeans over to Min Hee Jin ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

[+246, -21] So petty for a so-called adult

[+161, -23] He sees these kids as investments, not his own responsibilities. That's why ILLIT is the way that they are, not that I want to compare.

[+57, -12] All legal issues aside, why is this Bang guy so petty?

[+34, -8] It's so crazy to me that New Jeans has done the second most for their company since BTS and they're not being treated like prized daughters over there but rather invisible

[+25, -6] Once Hybe gets Min Hee Jin, it's only a matter of time before New Jeans ends up like Girlfriend. There is no way that Bang Shi Hyuk is ever protecting New Jeans...

[+370, -20] Park Ji Won trying to send off a group bringing them profits out to a long vacation ㅋㅋㅋㅋ does this not count as breach of trust ㅋㅋ

- [+116, -6] What does this Park Ji Won person even know about the entertainment person? Aren't they the ones that f*cked up Nexon?

- [+115, -7] I'm dying at Hybe's excuse at facial recognition disorder, legendary

- [+92, -6] Park Ji Won not doing a very good job as the middleman is playing a large role in this whole scandal as well

[+287, -12] The more we dive deeper into this, the more we're finding out just how little Bang Shi Hyuk and Park Ji Won are qualified to run such a large company. It's obvious Bang Shi Hyuk resents Min Hee Jin for producing a better group than anything he's produced.

[+253, -5] Hybe's excuse in a nutshell: Bang Shi Hyuk has a facial recognition disorder, which is why he didn't acknowledge the girls when they greeted him...

- [+72, -3] ㅋㅋㅋ Only when it suits him, right? ㅋㅋㅋ Ugh, he should act his size

- [+66, -1] It's almost like Hybe's thinking that they don't need New Jeans anyway once BTS discharges

- [+59, -3] What's Hybe trying to do while they send New Jeans off on vacation? Hmm? Fill their absence with ILLIT?

[+168, -8] New Jeans already announced they have plans for a full album in the second half of the year, why would Hybe think sending them off on vacation would be a good idea..

[+105, -5] Wow...

[+42, -3] To all of you comments picking on the parents for speaking up, you do realize the members are young? Who else would speak up for them than their parents?

[+41, -2] The part about Hybe claiming Bang Shi Hyuk has facial recognition disorder is hilarious

[+957] It's only a vacation in name, Hybe's basically just trying to cut their promos off completely ㅋㅋ

[+732] Hybe really makes me realize how scary the entertainment industry is

[+159] As much as Bang-ssi adores BTS, even they only got a month's vacation time six years into their debut, and that was considered their first official long vacation... To give a rookie team 1 year 6 months, the intention is so obvious

[+304] And they'll spend that year and a half giving all their concepts to ILLIT, media playing the crap out of them, and then 2 years later we'll get the news "New Jeans will be going separate ways, Hybe will continue to support them"

[+748] A year and a half, that's the perfect time for the public to forget about them

[+467] Vacation my butt ㅋㅋ who goes on any vacation for a year and a half


Article: [Exclusive] The reason why New Jeans' parents don't trust Bang Shi Hyuk...

[+206, -15] The minute Hybe started media playing the parents to look like greedy people out for their own wallets, the relationship between artist and agency has been severed for good

[+147, -10] So petty... ㅜㅜㅜㅜ he really thought he could intimidate New Jeans by ignoring their greetings ㅠㅜ

[+100, -8] You just know Hybe's so mad because they begged Min Hee Jin not to promote New Jeans until Le Sserafum debuts but New Jeans blew up with their debut

[+719, -103] Why would anyone think the parents are lying... so ridiculous

[+289, -98] All the boomers on Naver are on Hybe's side, just ignore them

[+352, -187] The parents getting involved will make this end up like Fifty Fifty... this isn't the best for the members

[+170, -32] So they want their contracts canceled because he didn't greet them?

[+69, -8] Obviously the parents aren't doing all this just because their "feelings were hurt." It's just another example in their greater complaint that Hybe is obviously mistreating one of their biggest groups. Their plan is to kick Min Hee Jin out and throw New Jeans on the backburner, which the shareholders should be charging Bang Shi Hyuk with breach of trust for. New Jeans brings the company so much money, it's pathetic that Bang Shi Hyuk would rather give that up because of his own petty emotions. If that's not a perfect example of breach of trust, then what is?

[+29, -12] I've already lost my trust in anything Hybe says

[+16, -3] Same thing the Fifty kids and their parents claimed...


Article: Hybe, "The claim that Bang Shi Hyuk did not accept New Jeans greetings is not true... Min Hee Jin, stop using the parents"

[+258, -41] What do you even think you're doing to the kids? Why not accept their greeting?

[+252, -19] Look at Hybe respond so quick to things like this ㅋㅋ but nothing on Dahn World ㅋㅋㅋ

[+167, -15] If all of this isn't true, then what about everything else? What about the other girl groups getting debut showcases and debut parties but nothing for New Jeans?

[+159, -33] Already lost my trust in Hybe...

[+93, -7] Physiognomy is science

[+43, -5] Why didn't you throw a debut showcase for New Jeans, then?

[+34, -3] Do you really think New Jeans parents are foolish enough to be manipulated by Ador however way they want?

[+22, -5] If the parents were truly being "used," then I'm sure the parents wouldn't stand for it, especially when they've been vocal about other things ㅋ and the way things have been going, it's pretty clear that the only person that cares about the group is Min Hee Jin

[+8, -0] But look at you, Hybe, you tried to use BTS and now you have funeral flowers at your front door.
