Tasty announced a couple days ago that they would be leaving their company, Woollim Entertainment, and if you said “who?” like I did, then I think that’s exactly their point.
Tasty started things by leaving a statement on their Weibo.
“Hello, this is Daeryong and Soryong. We’re announcing that after eight years, our time in Korea is coming to an end. There were many things that we could not negotiate with our company, and after much consideration we have come to this decision. Although our time in Korea is ending, we won’t stop making music.”
Woollim responded, surprised that they had left for China and that the duo had cut off communication.
“We have been working hard to support Tasty’s various activities and fulfill our joint goals. We completed recording a new song with the goal of Tasty staging a simultaneous Korean and Chinese comeback in June, but then we confirmed that Daeryong and Soryong had suddenly left for China without notice. After that, they cut off all communications with the agency. We have seen their social media posting, but we still don’t think that this is the worst-case scenario. We’re currently waiting to hear from Daeryong and Soryong.”
Tasty then took to Twitter to call-out Woollim on supposed lies about the situation.
“?? One-sided disappearance? What about the time we talked with the directors and the CEO? We told you thoroughly about the things we couldn’t understand and you told us that the company understands. To say now that we suddenly disappeared and it is unilateral…We don’t understand.”
“Recording a new song? Who is the one who unilaterally selected a song without listening to our opinions and then said they could keep pushing back the comeback date if we didn’t accept the title song? We’re the type that don’t like to explain every single thing, but the time has come when we have to.”
Right off the bat, let’s just admit that none of us know anything about right or wrong here. I didn’t even know who they were, much less their contract situation or anything else like that.
That said, Woollim being a fuck up wouldn’t exactly be anything new either.
