TS Entertainment And Jun Hyosung Fail To Reach Compromise In Legal Dispute
TS Entertainment refused to come to an agreement with Jun Hyosung at the fourth pleading held for the singer’s lawsuit against the agency.
On August 29, the Seoul Western District Court conducted the hearing to confirm the invalidity of Jun Hyosung’s exclusive contract with the agency. The trial resumed after two previous delays.
TS Entertainment’s lawyer stated, “We have no plans on negotiating with Jun Hyosung. Although we hope to conclude the case smoothly, concluding the case as the plaintiff pleases is the same thing as us not being able to operate as an entertainment company anymore.”
They continued, “We will not terminate the plaintiff’s contract. We can begin discussions for negotiations after the plaintiff repays the deposit. It is unclear from our point of view that the plaintiff wishes to terminate the contract due to personal circumstances.”
Jun Hyosung had previously filed this civil lawsuit against TS Entertainment in September 2017, but the agency denied all claims of issues with payments.
TS Entertainment’s stance is that it is not possible to terminate her contract as it still remains valid until 2021.
