NewJeans Hanni clarified misunderstandings about being prohibited from taking Korean lessons
On November 22nd, through a fan communication platform, Hanni addressed misconceptions that arose from her live broadcast on November 21st.
During the live broadcast, Hanni shared that she had wanted to formally learn Korean but had not taken any actions to do so. Subsequently, unfounded claims circulated, suggesting that her agency ADOR had prevented her from taking Korean lessons. Hanni directly refuted these rumors within a day.
Hanni explained, “What I said during last Phoning call, I think there’s been a misunderstanding. About a year ago I mentioned to my manager, who left the company earlier, about how I wanted to start doing Korean classes again and she replied on the spot very lightly, so I took it as a joke and also found it quite funny.”
She continued, “I just wanted to share a fun story with you but I think there was a misunderstanding. That conversation has not reached my label or CEO as it was a very light one. I feel awfully sorry about this.”
Finally, she added, “It was never my intention for what I mentioned about yesterday to become this big. I hope there’s no misunderstanding, and don’t worry about it.”
