MBC Edits Claim That SEVENTEEN “Built” 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.

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.”

ARMYs felt that the subtitles were inaccurate because they seemed to disrespect BTS’s contribution to HYBE’s growth. 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. However, many fans still couldn’t erase what they had done, and could not see MBC in the same way anymore.

Even though they edited the subtitles, I will never be able to forget what HYBE and MBC did.

Fans also found that they had edited the subtitles on Naver and Nate TV platforms.

Fans also looked at BTS HYBE’s revenue guide:

2018: 98% (about 100 %) 2019: 97% (about 100 %) 2020: 92% 2021: 70% – Relocation to new headquarters 2022: 67% 2023: 60% (estimated)

2018년: 98% (약 100%)
2019년: 97% (약 100%)
2020년: 92%
2021년 : 70% – 신사옥 이전
2022년 : 67%
2023: 60% (예상) pic.twitter.com/08scp9SD3i

Numberwise, BTS accounted for most of HYBE’s sales and maintained 60% last year without being active as a complete group.

BTS accounted for 67% of Hybe’s sales in 2022 w/o a tour, or a full comeback

and 60% in 2023 without an active OT7

While others sold 10M in a year and still are only a contributer to the rest of the 40%…

On the other hand, it seems that the subtitles still have not been edited on the official MBC website yet.
