Other K-Pop idols are even fans of the group, as seen by just how many different stars have shown support for the group’s performances and dance challenges. The group’s most recent release, “OMG,” has even gone viral among non-K-Pop fans on TikTok.

With the group’s rising popularity, however, there have been some points of criticism, mainly directed toward the group‘s CEO, Min Hee Jin. However, following NewJean’s record-setting Billboard Hot 100 debut, netizens have targeted the group with hate comments over something that was not under their control.

In mid-January, NewJeans became one of three K-Pop girl groups with multiple entries on Billboard Hot 100 chart. After this moment, many Korean news outlets began reporting about NewJeans’s success, claiming they would “fill in” the void left behind by BTS.


  • “Fully Taken Over The Void Left By BTS”… HYBE Stock Prices Catch New Wind Thanks to NewJeans
  • “Did BTS Leave A Void?” … NewJeans Take Over Charts, Are They Really Making It Big
  • Will NewJeans Fill BTS’s Void…Stock Market, HYBE Target Shares Increase
  • ‘Even With BTS Enlistment’… The Reason Why HYBE’s Target Shares Rose By 23%?

Fans of the group saw this as HYBE “bringing downBTS to promote NewJeans and did not approve of the company using either of the artists in this way. A majority saw it as the company’s fault and did not seem to place blame on the girl group.

Unfortunately, some netizens have taken their concern to the extreme, leaving hate comments directed at NewJeans on Twitter and Instagram. Normally, NewJean’s Instagram posts will get a few thousand comments from fans, but the group’s most recent upload has over 25 thousand comments, many of them negative.
