Upon hearing about this, a lot of netizens are cheering for Min Hee-jin, while laughing at HYBE’s failure in the court ruling. 

Below are some comments from netizens: 

  • The artists under HYBE now have to work to pay this back 
  • Ha, and this is just the legal costs from Min Hee-jin’s side, I wonder how much HYBE has to pay for their own legal costs? 
  • They are probably planning to take the money from BTS fans again 
  • The company is probably already planning to milk the money from fans of their artists…
  • I hope BTS will leave for an independent label after all of this, all of their money are being used by HYBE on stupid causes.
