NewJeans’ Comeback Plans “Still In Place” Despite Disputes Between HYBE & ADOR

K-pop girl group NewJeans is determined to release new music next month, despite an ongoing dispute between their label ADOR and entertainment giant HYBE. A reliable source, as reported by South Korean news outlet Korea JoongAng Daily, confirms that NewJeans will be releasing a new single in May, regardless of whether ADOR CEO Min Hee-jin cooperates with HYBE or not. The report comes after it was revealed that Min Hee-jin and HYBE are in a power struggle over the K-pop agency.

Last month, NewJeans announced the release of two single albums and a world tour in 2025. The first of the two releases, ‘How Sweet’, featuring its title track and a B-side called ‘Bubble Gum’, is set to come out on May 24. The second release was announced as the girl group’s Japanese debut on June 21, featuring the songs ‘Supernatural’ and ‘Right Now’. It is currently unclear whether this second release will proceed due to the dispute between HYBE and ADOR. Following the news of the dispute, ADOR CEO Min Hee-jin accused HYBE of “undermining” the success of NewJeans by creating a copycat version of the quintet. She has also denied allegations that she was trying to take control of the K-pop agency from HYBE.

For fans of the girl group waiting for the new music to be released, here’s something below to keep the anticipation fresh.
