Moreover, the officers in ADOR also discussed extensive plans on how to terminate NewJeans’ and Min Hee Jin’s contracts prematurely with HYBE. Their ultimate final move was to win over public opinion in May and leave ADOR along with the artists.

The company will also be pressing charges over professional malpractice against Min Hee Jin and everyone involved.

HYBE has also addressed that they will be supporting NewJeans members in every way. They will be provided with resources to support them both mentally and emotionally. Moreover, the company will remain in contact with the group’s legal team to ensure that they are protected from any external influence.
