I would say that since the Kim scandal Garam Lesserafim got out of hand I find it sad because they worked hard but since Garam left I admit that I hate them a little but I just wish them rest because if it continues like this she's going to get destroyed


While it was she who took her time to start them because she didn't want them to be too rushed and she herself said in an interview at the beginning of 2022 that she wanted to start NJ in the third trimester. Then as some members of NJ were originally at Source music and she wanted them transferred to ADOR this slowed down the process even more while it took time to redo the contracts and send SM staff to ADOR.

Both groups are talented and I understand that strategically it was better to start SSERAFIM before NEWJEANS.
The problem at HYBE is this multi-label system. By putting them in competition against each other, they would have had to be all under the same label.


Not at all the only label currently in the sea…. it's LOVE everything else goes well together! It's just that MHJ has eyes bigger than her stomach and always wants more but she drags NJ in her wake to have more leverage against Hybe.
