Now, netizens believe this has happened again by NewJeans’s exclusion from an upcoming exhibition.

On June 9, it was announced that HYBE would collaborate with The Grammy Museum for a special exhibition on its artists. “HYBE: We Believe in Music, A Grammy Museum Exhibit” is said to contain items from the company’s artists in one of the museum’s biggest exhibitions to date.

HYBE and their artists represent the present and future of the global music landscape, and our goal with this exhibit is to deepen the appreciation and respect for its creators and performers. HYBE has contributed to creating a playground of innovation that inspires fandoms that transcend age, gender, geography and beyond. The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to provide a space where fans can express their love for K-pop and feel closer to their favorite idols.

The announcement came with a graphic depicting the artists that would be included in the exhibition, including the newest group KATSEYE, and artists under sub-labels, like Zico.
