Some netizens claimed that CEO Min distorted and interpreted some social media posts and concept images of NEWJEANS, making group members, who are teenage girls, objects or sexual exhibition.
However, although the group was praised by the older generation, many added that the group was not suitable for an adult’s gaze, because the five members are very young.
NEWJEANS have been a sensation since its debut. The first physical CD “NEWJEANS,” which was released on August 8, sold 260,000 copies on the same day, setting a new record for a debut girl group for this agency in Korea. In addition, the title track “Attention”, which was released 1st, ranked first on Melon, Korea’s largest music platform.
As interest grows rapidly, so do the number of gross slander and malicious comments.
