The CEO herself said to have felt a “synchronization” with Hye-in herself. 

New Jeans is the current hit group with a debut song “Hype Boy” under their sleeves hitting 100 million streaming of Spotify in about three months since its drop in July.

When asked of the members, Hee-jin mentioned Hye-in after debut with NewJeans, “The youngest member [Hye-in] is a cool and sophisticated person. She is talented with many hidden tricks up her sleeves. Despite her young age, she has both a profound aspect to her innocence.”

Min Hee-jin also invited Hye-in and other members to her house to talk about the group’s direction. In recalling the event, she revealed Hye-in’s reaction, “She listened to the song I was playing and noted down nonstop while saying the melody was really good.
