“In respect of the court’s decision regarding the preliminary injunction lawsuit filed by CEO Min Hee Jin, we will not exercise our voting rights in favor of the ‘Removal of Inside Director Min Hee Jin’ at the upcoming extraordinary general meeting of shareholders.

Additionally, as the court stated in this decision, ‘It is clear that CEO Min Hee Jin sought a way to weaken HYBE’s control over ADOR and allow Min Hee Jin to independently control ADOR by taking NewJeans out of HYBE’s control or pressuring HYBE to sell its stake in Adore.’

We plan to follow up the next course of action that is within the boundaries of the law.”
