Boy group The Legend recently revealed that they filed a lawsuit for contract nullification against their company, SS Entertainment. Their reps have charged that The Legend have been unable to get lessons, others in the company are also filing lawsuits, they have no managers, they have no transportation, their dorm has no gas and electricity, and they’ve failed to receive whatever a ‘settlement table’ is.
A representative from The Legend’s side stated, “This past July 7, we have filed lawsuits asking to nullify The Legend’s contracts with SS Entertainment. According to the contract, SS Entertainment should have been doing everything in its power to help The Legend grow and improve in skills and talents, but they are not in a situation where they are able to do so. The Legend have been unable to receive lessons, which are key to an idol’s career. In addition, other employees of the label in charge of aiding The Legend’s activities have also been unpaid and are resigning. The employees themselves have also filed lawsuits against SS Entertainment.” The rep continued, “After signing the contract, SS Entertainment failed to provide managers or transportation for The Legend, and because they constantly failed to pay the utility bill at the dorm in time, the gas has been cut off several times. Currently, there is no electricity. According to the contract, The Legend must also receive a settlement table every 3 months, but SS Entertainment has so far only provided The Legend with two settlement tables, but even those had numerous flaws. When the group asked for recreated ones, the contents of the settlement tables changed. Afterward, The Legend have yet to receive further settlement tables.” The Legend and their side concluded, “SS Entertainment failed to fulfill its duties as a label for The Legend. The group has worked hard for their promotions despite the label’s lack of action, but the contract is no longer negotiable. From here on, The Legend will provide clear evidence supporting their desires to nullify their contracts with SS Entertainment and will follow the court’s decisions in all cases.”
It’s sorta sad in itself that this didn’t go mainstream until now and it was filed a month ago, and it kinda speaks to all kinds of shady shit that can go down when companies are out of sight and out of mind of the public.
Still, we haven’t heard the company’s rebuttal yet, but if most of this is true it makes them look absolutely terrible.
