Netizens slammed the news articles for suggesting that NewJeans had “filled in” for BTS. Despite NewJeans achieving almost unprecedented success so soon after their debut, many fans took offense that anyone would suggest that the biggest music group in the world could ever be replaced. Netizens were split, however, with most alleging HYBE was purposefully using the articles to prop up its stock prices, while some defended the label and alleged it had nothing to do with the articles.

  • “Fine, now let BTS go and terminate their contracts, you f@ckers. I’m so sick of you.”
  • “If (the press) keeps mentioning BTS and NewJeans together, the public will eventually think they are on the same level. I think that’s what (HYBE) wants, LOL. But (NewJeans) has still a long way to go, and the (public) will catch on to the tactic and resent (HYBE).”
  • “Now NewJeans can be the breadwinner for HYBE, LOL. I guess BTS can put their hearts at ease and leave (HYBE), LOL. There are so many fans who are pissed at HYBE and are waiting for the contract to end. I guess we can now have hope this will happen.”
  • “That’s great. Now BTS can leave HYBE.”
  • “I seriously f@cking hate them, LOL. The CEO (Min Hee Jin) insists HYBE played no part in (NewJeans’) success, but why are they using BTS in the media? LOL. Even if they were trying to protect (HYBE’s) stock price, they still spread the press release.”
  • “HYBE is really pathetic.”
  • “Anyone can see that the articles are from economic news outlets about (HYBE’s) stock prices. Why are you blaming HYBE? LOL.”
