KATSEYE Accidentally Retweets One Of RIIZE’s Tweets

On May 2, 2024, a post titled “HYBE’s girl group account making a mistake” was uploaded to the well-known South Korean online community forum TheQoo.

The original poster (OP) included a screenshot of KATSEYE’s activity on X (formerly Twitter). The person running the account accidentally retweeted a tweet from RIIZE, a boy group under SM Entertainment. To be specific, they retweeted RIIZE’s post announcing their official fan light.

In the caption, the poster commented that HYBE’s American girl group reposted the tweet, but has since taken it down.

This is an odd coincidence, as SM Entertainment and HYBE Corporation have a close relationship. Back in March 2024, it was reported that HYBE purchased 104.3 billion KRW worth of shares of SM Entertainment after the company’s founder, Lee Soo Man, decided to sell his shares.

This means that HYBE is the second-largest shareholder of the company. As of writing, HYBE owns 12.6% of SM Entertainment’s shares. The largest shareholder is Kakao Corp and Kakao Entertainment, with stakes of 20.8% and 19.1%, respectively.

Some joked that HYBE loves SM Entertainment so much, and called it a “one-sided love.”

This is likely due to the fact that in March 2023, HYBE attempted to acquire a larger stake in SM Entertainment, but failed to do so after Kakao’s successful tender offer upped its stake to 35%. HYBE was left with no choice, selling 44% of its shares in SM Entertainment to Kakao.
