NewJeans Agency Answers Accusations of Not Allowing Idols to Learn Lifestyle – 11 hours ago


Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – NewJeans’ agency, ADOR, released an official statement to answer the controversy that stated that they did not provide access to education for their artists.

“Regarding member education, ADOR has recruited tutors and scheduled classes based on the needs of NewJeans members. We continue to do this, and even recently, we held a separate language class for Hanni. This also applies to Korean language education. Academic issues and “Privacy issues are very important personal decisions for members, and the company never makes decisions at our own discretion,” read the agency’s clarification, as quoted from SoompiThursday (23/11/2023).

Previously, on November 21, Hanni, a member of NewJeans, did this live and said something that made fans uneasy.


“There’s something I want to say. I told the company that I wanted to take Korean language classes more often, but they said it wasn’t necessary. Because they said I didn’t need it.”

Hanni then added, “My last Korean lesson was two years ago.”

Many fans were disturbed by the fact that Hanni was not allowed to take Korean language lessons by his agency. Some people argue that not providing access to education is a violation of human rights.

The next day, Hanni made a post stating that there had been a misunderstanding.

Hanni wrote, “About a year ago, I told my manager, who had resigned, that I wanted to take Korean language classes again and he immediately answered very lightly, so I took it as a joke and also thought it was quite funny. I just wanted to share I had a light story with you but I think there was a misunderstanding. The conversation has not reached the label or the CEO because it was just a light conversation. I feel very sorry about this. There was never any intention for what I mentioned yesterday to become this big. I hope there is no misunderstanding and don’t worry!!”
