New Jeans creator Min Hee-jin won a very short-run victory this Thursday when the court ruled to block HYBE from firing her the next day. However, HYBE immediately took action to fire her two VPs and take control of the ADOR board of directors. This essentially makes Min Hee-jin a lame duck CEO with no power.

But if she was so tortured that she spent most of her working hours consulting shamans and scheming with her VPs to sabotage HYBE, why is she fighting so hard to stay? And why did Korea’s court system agree with her on this injunction? Tune in for another legal K-drama with real people and real K-pop.
