HYBE was selected as one of the ‘100 Most Influential Companies in the World’ published by <TIME>. The list included Google, Tesla, and Apple. <TIME> introduced HYBE as the company that made the most significant public announcement within the last three years in Korea in October and explained it as “Currently HYBE is flying on a high altitude, thanks to the world’s largest supergroup BTS.”
In addition, <TIME> noted that, like Disney in the past, HYBE focuses on the artist’s IP (Intellectual Property Rights), developing into fan-friendly experiences and products. Also, it is paid attention that HYBE invested more than KRW 66.7 billion (about $59 million) in YG Plus at the end of January this year and acquired Ithaca Holdings Media Group in the U.S. for about $950 million in April.
