After it became public that Kang Daniel and LM Entertainment were having a contract dispute, it seemed like only a matter of time before the reports about him trying to terminate the contract came true. Moments ago, it was revealed that he’s now trying to do exactly that.
On [March] 21, singer Kang Daniel’s legal representative Yulchon LLC submitted an application to the Seoul Central District Court for an injunction against LM Entertainment for the suspension of his exclusive contract. Yulchon lawyer Yeom Yong Pyo (head of sports entertainment conflict department), who is in charge of this case, revealed, “Without the prior consent of Kang Daniel, LM Entertainment signed joint business contracts that sell Kang Daniel’s exclusive contract rights to third parties. The application for injunction was submitted as [LM Entertainment] completely breached [the terms of] his contract.” He explained, “The decision for injunction is typically determined quickly in approximately one to two months, and if [the request] is accepted, Kang Daniel can immediately begin independent activities in the entertainment industry.”
He added, “Kang Daniel feels bad that the incident has become a legal [matter] and expresses his deep apologies to the fans who cherish him. He shared his hopes for the incident to be resolved as quickly as possible.”
I don’t know much about his company, but I do know they recently tried to file a trademark for one of their artist’s personal name recently, so as far as I’m concerned he needs to get out as quickly as possible.
