Bang Si-hyuk slams Min Hee-jin

The HYBE founder said, “I understand that some view Min Hee-jin’s actions as highlighting the problems of a multilabel system. However, no matter how sophisticated the system is or how thorough the contracts are, nothing can completely deter human malice. The actions of one malicious individual should not be allowed to damage the system that may have been built over a long time. I believe that this is the strength of our social system, which prevents personal malice and wrongdoing from destroying social institutions and order.”

Reportedly, he also asserted his determination to set appropriate rules and precedents for the entirety of the K-pop industry. “I deeply regret that this incident has caused concern to the public, especially when we, as an entertainment company, should be delivering joy. I sincerely hope that this genuine sentiment reaches you and that the court will make a wise decision to dismiss the injunction,” he added.
