The Financial Times (FT) reported that many Korean women accept the conflict between HYBE and ADOR CEO Min Heejin as a “young woman resisting Korea’s patriarchal workplace culture.”

FT stated, “This situation raises questions about how the K-pop industry, including top entertainment companies like HYBE, can replicate the success of the past decade amid declining stock prices. HYBE will find it more challenging to handle Min Heejin as she is seen as a hero by many young women.”

A 31-year-old woman working in education in Seoul said, “What CEO Min goes through is what we go through every day in a male-dominated and hierarchical corporate culture,” adding, “It’s what we dreamed of for CEO Min to speak out.”
