CARATs Are Just As Shocked At MBC’s Claim That SEVENTEEN Built Up HYBE’s Headquarters


Recently, a statement claiming that HYBE was built by group SEVENTEEN was aired on MBC’s Hangout With You. After the teaser release, they received much criticism and backlash from ARMYs.

다진것도 쌓아 올린것도 방탄인데?
무슨 소리야? 방송국만 모르네

In the original clip, the subtitles state, “The HYBE headquarters built up by SEVENTEEN.”ARMYs that saw the clip were furious and called it an “absolute distortion of history.”

흠… 그사이 수정을 하긴 하셨구나?

After this blew up on social media, fans found that the subtitles have since then been edited. The updated subtitles now state, “Welcome to HYBE’s headquarters. Even the members were in awe of the new building. 

Most recently, an online community post garnered attention as they wanted to make it clear that ARMYs only had beef with the production team at MBC and not with SEVENTEEN or their fans.

In the post, they revealed news articles showing that the new HYBE building was already built in 2019.

However, PLEDIS, which is SEVENTEEN’s agency, was acquired in May 2020.

The OP felt that BTS literally built 99.9% of the HYBE headquarters and that it was only natural for ARMYs to be enraged about MBC’s subtitle claim.

SEVENTEEN fans also felt that the subtitle was inappropriate and understood why ARMYs were shocked by the claim.

Netizen comments | theqoo “I agree, I’m a SEVENTEEN fan, and I can see why ARMYs would be angry. SEVENTEEN and their fans don’t think they built up HYBE. The production team really went too far on this.” “This is something to be angry about.” “Even SEVENTEEN fans are confused about this, just imagine how BTS fans feel.”

세븐틴 오빠들은 그저 가장으로써 플레디스 힘들게 먹여살리다가
거대한 건물보고 라면에 해산물 들어있다고 우리 성공했다고 좋아하는 오빠들일 뿐입니다 .. 월세는 안 밀리고 잘내는듯요

SEVENTEEN are just the head of the family and had a hard time trying to save PLEDIS. They are just happy that they have succeeded by looking at the huge building. They are never late on paying their rent.

아무리 생각해도 걍 개웃김
걍 놀뭐 출연진이나 세븐틴은 잘못한게 하나도 없는데
놀뭐제작진의 저 한마디에 걍 풍비박산 나버림

This is just f*cking funny. The show cast and SEVENTEEN members have done nothing wrong. It’s all because of the production team who chose the wrong words.

아 제발..존나 쪽팔림..우리한테 왜그러심? 이건 저쪽 제작진 측에서 사과해야지 ㄹㅇ…양쪽 다 어이없어하는 상황 무슨일인데 이게

This is so embarrassing. Why are you doing this to the SEVENTEEN fans? The production team needs to apologize for this. Both sides are just flabbergasted by this. What is all this…

캐럿인 내가 봐도 어이없음;;; 저희 애들은 플레디스를 세워 올렸습니다만? ;;

Even as a Carat, I find it absurd…our kids raised Pledis, right?

On the other hand, MBC has recently edited the subtitle claim on various media platforms.
