NewJeans, the incredibly popular rookie group, was a guest on tvN‘s You Quiz On The Block. Also joining the group for its highly anticipated appearance was the group’s label, ADOR’s CEO, Min Hee Jin.

NewJeans has had an explosive start to its career, releasing three songs, “Cookie,” “Attention,” and “Hypeboy,” as part of its debut. All three songs would go on to dominate domestic music charts.

Another meaning (of NewJeans) is we’d like to be like new jeans since it isn’t subject to trends and everyone keeps wearing them…

— Haerin

Immediately after Haerin’s response, Yoo Jae Suk then looked over at Min Hee Jin inquisitively before asking if the group’s name was more personal to the CEO than previously mentioned.

Some say that the Jeans in NewJeans (which in Korean is pronounced similarly to Jin) come from the “Jin” in Min Hee Jin…

Min Hee Jin, who previously seemed relaxed, hurriedly denied stating that is “Absolutely not true.” Yoo Jae Suk noting how Min Hee Jin was flustered, called out the CEO’s change in disposition before absolving her of the allegation.

She was genuinely shocked just now. The CEO’s back is no longer against the chair, which means this (the allegation) is absolutely not true.

— Yoo Jae Suk
