ADOR CEO Accuses HYBE Chairman of Copying Her Concept to Create BTS

In a startling revelation, ADOR’s CEO Min Hee-jin has accused HYBE chairman Bang Si-hyuk of copying her ideas to create the globally successful K-pop group BTS. According to a report by Yonhap, cited by Koreaboo, Hee-jin made these allegations during a recent audit, suggesting that Bang’s success with BTS was a result of imitating her creative vision. These claims have surfaced amidst ongoing audits of ADOR’s management practices and allegations of the company attempting to operate independently from parent company HYBE.

The audit also unearthed documents where Hee-jin directly stated to an “external person” that Bang Si-hyuk had copied her to form BTS, as reported by Hankyung.com. This controversy unfolds as HYBE, the conglomerate behind BTS, faces scrutiny over its management practices, with Hee-jin criticizing the timing of these revelations. She argued that the audit and its associated public disclosures were strategically timed to coincide with critical moments for ADOR’s current projects, including the promotion of the new group NewJeans.

Hee-jin’s comments have stirred significant debate within the industry, given BTS’s international acclaim and impact. BTS, formed by Bang Si-hyuk, debuted in 2013 and quickly rose to global fame, reshaping the landscape of pop music. The band members, currently serving in the military, have yet to respond to these allegations. Meanwhile, the K-pop community is keenly watching the developments of this corporate saga, which could have deeper implications for the relationships within the Korean entertainment industry.
