Who Are NewJeans?

NewJeans is a five-member girl group consisting of Haerin, MinjiHanniDanielle and Hyein. The group, produced by BTS’ company HYBE, is managed by a new independent label called ADOR. The CEO of ADOR is Min Hee-Jin, who is most known for her work with K-pop groups like Red Velvet, Girl’s Generation and F(x).

ICYMI, K-pop is very well-known for its large-scale debuts of new groups, which usually is a months-long process filled with video teasers, sneak peeks and introducing the members one by one to the public.

However, what made NewJeans so unique was their complete subversion of that debut formula. The girls released their first song and music video for “Attention” on July 21, 2022, without any warning. They then released four separate music videos for the same song called “Hype Boy,” another music video for “Hurt” and then their official debut song and music video for “Cookie.”

“Before debuting, our president would invite us each into her home for a meal, and there was one time she invited us over as a group,” Hyein recalled during an interview with Rolling Stone in June 2023. “She asked us, ‘How would you want to roll out teasers for your debut?’ I think she was curious about what we would say. I just said, ‘I think it would be fun to just have no teaser at all,’ and she said ‘Oh? That’s actually what we’re planning on doing!'”
