Park Ji Won then came later and stated after NewJeans performs at the tokyo dome (after Min Hee Jin’s departure). HYBE was planning on putting NewJeans on a long hiatus. I couldn’t ask how long the hiatus will be, but Park Ji Won said that they are looking for a grammy-award winning producer, which would take at least a year and a half. He said that he would try to find one as soon as possible, but we felt that was how long the hiatus would be.

Ilgan Sports then reached out to HYBE about the parents’ allegations. HYBE acknowledged stating that they were planning on a hiatus, but claimed it wasn’t out of malicious intent.

“When we said we were putting them on a long hiatus, we didn’t mean they are gong to be exiled. Usually, after an idol promotes, they are given a hiatus. Then after that they come back and promote diligently. That is what we meant.”
