  • HYBE is truly taking the lead in ruining K-pop
  • I guess this is why HYBE continues to plagiarize without shame. They will just pay anything off
  • They covered the situations up and said everything were “references”, but anyone can see those instance were plagiarism
  • HYBE is really disgusting. Min Hee-jin, you are going a good job 
  • So everything is plagiarism…
