Yena’s label Yuehua Entertainment responded to the controversy over her recent track “Hate Rodrigo,” stating, “The new track ‘Hate Rodrigo’ was not taken down at the request of Olivia Rodrigo’s management.”
The agency explained on June 30th, “The video was removed from the platform due to the possible copyright infringement in certain scenes of the music video. We are currently editing it.”
“It is not true that the music video was made private at the request of Olivia Rodrigo’s company. We have not received such a request,” it added, saying, “Hopefully, there will be no further confusion caused to each artist and fans by unconfirmed reports, and we ask you to refrain from spreading speculations in the future.”
Choi Ye Na recently released her second single on June 27th, but quickly came under fire over the title track’s title being “Hate Rodrigo.” Following the controversy, her MV was set to private on June 29th. Media outlets initially reported that it was due to the request of Olivia Rodrigo’s agency but later made corrections on that.
