NewJeans was Min’s first group, and she oversaw the project from selecting members to choreography and music production.

However, after NewJeans’ success, Min was reportedly stressed about others indiscriminately borrowing her concept. In particular, she expressed her outrage after seeing a male idol group under HYBE being titled the “male version” of NewJeans.

  • “Does she think she owns the K-Pop scene or what? Lol.”
  • “How is TWS the male NewJeans? I thought they were going more after SEVENTEEN’s light concept.”
  • “Wow… Such bullsh*t.”
  • “What do you mean TWS…? She’s in way over her head.”
  • “NewJeans is a successful group, but could this really have been possible without HYBE?”
  • “If she brought a more positive mindset to this and considered the others’ implementation of similar concepts as proof that her group has so much influence, things would have turned out differently. But because she took it negatively, everything is getting twisted. I’ve learned that positive thinkers are more well-suited for business ventures.”
  • “Did she apologize to the people she used as references to make her group?”

Most recently, Min addressed the concern for NewJeans’ future and is discussing the best way to promote the group’s scheduled comeback. On the other hand, read the full story of the ongoing feud below.
