On May 24, an online post titled “Person Suspected of Making NewJeans’ ‘How Sweet’ Plagiarism Video” went viral. In the post, a netizen uploaded another post from the controversial and chauvinist website DC Inside.

HYBE accused of sabotaging the return of NewJeans just hours after its launch

In the DC Inside publication, an Internet user writes that they were the ones who made the video. In their post, DC Inside user claims that they made the video in 2 hours, seemingly addressing the many fans who initially suspected that HYBE was the one who released it.

I made the song just two hours after it was released. The song was so bad that I asked myself: Do I really have to do this? HA HA HA.

The DC Inside user then goes on to claim that Min Hee Jin’s press conference prompted him to make the video.

But during your 2-hour cry fest, you said that (K-Pop) should never be similar. So I did it.

To put it in context, DC Inside is one of the most controversial online communities in Korea. Considered on par with ILBE, the community is known to produce incels and trolls who subscribe to toxic misogyny. The community gained even more infamy recently when trolls posted knife threats on community bulletin boards.

Anonymous online community is under fire for being a popular source of recent stabbing warnings and threats

As expected, the DC Inside community has been very biased towards HYBE in her dispute against Min Hee Jin despite the overwhelming public support for the ADOR CEO. The community’s hatred lies in the fact that Min Hee Jin is a woman considered the CEO and the most influential creative mind in K-Pop, an industry dominated by men. Min Hee Jin’s comments on gaejussiThe damn old men were particularly unpopular on the site.

Previously, a video claiming that NewJeans’ latest song “How Sweet” had been plagiarized went viral. The video claimed that the song’s melody, as well as its iconic Miami Bass/House Drum pattern, was plagiarism despite having been used in classic songs.

Initially, many fans believed that HYBE was behind the video because it was uploaded just hours after the NewJeans songs were released.

  • “What bothers me even more is that I feel like this is a HYBE account acting like a LE SSERAFIM fan, lol.”
  • “I heard that Olivia Rodrigo is coming to Korea to get paid for plagiarizing her.”
  • “To begin with, it’s not even similar… For there to even be a debate, the evidence must be as strong as the plagiarism of LE SSERAFIM and ILLIT. This, however, is the epitome of misinformation, and yet you are the only ones getting nervous.”
  • “Don’t fucking do it, hahaha. Are you guys comedians or are you trying to be serious? HA HA HA.”
  • “Yes Hyuk…”

Internet users reacted to the publication with disgust and surprise at the revelation.
