Yet, what struck a chord with netizens was noticing that the document was called “Project 1945” and reported in that way on news outlets.

When netizens found out that the file was allegedly called “Project 1945,” they were shocked. 1945 is an important date for Koreans as it was when South Korea was liberated from Japan, and netizens were in shock that ADOR was seemingly comparing the company’s independence from HYBE to that of Korea and Japan.

Considering how important the year is, netizens believed that ADOR seemingly compared the desire for independence to a significant part of Korea’s history, adding that it seems to boost their ego.

Many netizens found it extremely disrespectful and seemed to treat 1945 as something trivial and could be used for a “feud” between K-Pop companies.
