    Stop trying to act like a hard ass. you're trying to run your mouth when you weren't a.) part of the conversation or b.) understanding the point of it.


    I will happily disengage with you, all you are is a trouble maker who puts words in people's mouth and starts shit for no reason. I really don't have the desire to get into a spat with you.

    Hit dogs holla


    You quoted me you started this back in forth


    This is a kpop fourm lol that you think i need to pretend to do anything :facepalm:

    lol why are people pretending western artist don't beef over same things. Only difference is kpop companies are directly involved with artist music more than in the west so artist beef directly with each other.


    Olivia rodrigo got called out over multiple plagiarisms over sour


    Drake has beef with 90% of Canadian rappers/hip hop over stealing his flow and sound


    Nicki Minaj constantly calls other female rappers clones for having similar flows to her


    Every white rapper constantly gets shade thrown after them for emulating em


    List goes on and on

    Dispatch Reports That Min Hee Jin Paid Back Training Costs For NewJeans’ Members To Source Music

    Fans have misunderstood the situation.

    It was previously discussed amongst the fans, the matter of Min Hee Jin taking trainees from Source Music. It was widely known that Min Hee Jin was hired to produce a group for Source Music. This was when 4 out of 5 of the NewJeans’ members joined the company. Later on, in 2021, she established ADOR separately, taking with her a few choice trainees.


    This was said to be the debut group that Source Music was originally planning, including the four NewJeans’ members. Hyein later joined in 2021, around the time that ADOR was being established.


    Many fans had felt that it was unfair of Min Hee Jin to do this. Not only did she take the key trainees from Source Music, she also took some personnel with her to ADOR. Paired with GFRIEND not renewing their contracts with the company, Source Music eventually went into the red. Netizens have been blaming Min Hee Jin for Source Music’s plight, claiming that she forced Source Music to bear the burden of training costs, only to take away their invested trainees.



    Dispatch reported that although Min Hee Jin took the members of NewJeans away from Source Music, she had indeed paid back Source Music for the members’ training costs up to then. In a mistranslation, fans mistakenly believed that the “training costs were delivered to Source Music to handle,” when in actual fact, the correct translation of Dispatch’s article should be that the training costs were paid back (delivered/given) to Source Music by ADOR. An example of misinformation can be seen below.



    Fans have been reeling at the new piece of news.



    the source music trainee debt thing actually is not true. it says that cos of trainees were paid. but literally MHJ was using hybe funds for all that. but the cost of audition tour and such was still source music. the articles don't say trainee debt at source.

    This is kind of intresting:


    https://www.asianjunkie.com/20…le-in-source-musics-debt/

    "As far as why this could be an interest to GFRIEND and LE SSERAFIM fans. Well, for years now there’s not only been uncertainty about the reasons for GFRIEND disbanding, but also the circumstances of Source Music’s debt when they disbanded. This led to tension between fandoms, with HYBE company stans (gross) and LE SSERAFIM fans mocking GFRIEND as being flops for it and them needing to go due to driving the company into bankruptcy, while GFRIEND stans always held animosity towards LE SSERAFIM, thinking it was them that led Source to kick the girls who built the company to the curb. However, this accounting of the events seems to paint a picture where Source was actually in debt due to incurring all the costs of training a major project girl group in NewJeans, who were then poached by Min Hee Jin for ADOR (which was signed off on by HYBE). Then, in response to the debt they were left with, Source seemed to rush the formation of LE SSERAFIM, which explains their short (and almost nonexistent by K-pop standards) training time, thus their formation seems unrelated to GFRIEND. Netizens had theorized similar before, but this is Dispatch essentially reporting as much.""

    This was already proven false ador paid the debt

    "discrimination between the labels" and "newjeans is mistreated by hybe" feel like two very different claims imo. one implies that newjeans is being treated worse than other hybe grops because they are from ador. newjeans being mistreated doesn't necessarily have the same reference point of them being treated worse than another group, just not treated well in general. i think it is far harder to prove newjeans is treated worse than other hybe label groups, which is what ador's recent statement implies. bc if we think about it...ofc big time seniors like bts an 17 will get perks that new groups don't. thats not discrimination, its seniority. the only groups they can make a case about being treated "better" than newjeans without looking dumb are lsrf, tws, illit, maybe enhypen. and is that really a battle they want to start? they need to explicitly state in which way nwjns was treated worse or else they're just going to fuel speculation.

    I have no clue if they are or aren't been mistreated. Saying because they earned a lot of brand deals they cant be mistreated is stupid is my only point on the subject.
