On May 31, KBS’s Music Bank became the center of a heated debate in the K-pop community. NewJeans, nominated against aespa, took home first place with their hit song “How Sweet.”

However, the group’s celebration was marred by accusations of disrespect towards LE SSERAFIM’s Eunchae, who is also an MC for the show.

During the acceptance speech, Eunchae was seen checking to see if NewJeans had finished speaking after a prolonged silence.

 Just as she began to speak, Danielle from NewJeans interrupted to thank ADOR CEO Min Hee Jin. The camera then switched back to Eunchae, leading many to perceive this as a deliberate slight.

The incident has sparked a debate, with fans taking to social media to voice their opinions. Many believe that NewJeans intentionally disrespected Eunchae, especially given the ongoing legal tensions between ADOR and HYBE, involving Min Hee Jin’s targeting of LE SSERAFIM.

Conversely, a significant portion of the fanbase is defending NewJeans, suggesting the interruption was accidental. They point to the previous week’s episode of Music Bank, where Eunchae and NewJeans shared a light-hearted interaction, as evidence that there is no ill will between them. Some fans are even calling the backlash a “witch hunt.”



As ADOR and HYBE continue their disputes, it appears their artists are becoming collateral damage in the conflict. The public scrutiny and fan wars are adding pressure on groups like NewJeans and LE SSERAFIM, making it challenging to navigate their public appearances without controversy.

The incident has left the K-pop community polarized. One fan commented, “It’s clear that NewJeans had no intention of being disrespectful. This is being blown out of proportion.” Another stated, “Considering the tension between ADOR and HYBE, this felt very pointed. NewJeans should have been more careful.”

The debate over whether NewJeans disrespected Eunchae or if the outrage is an overreaction continues to rage on.
