Check out the full statement of CEO Kwon Jin Young below:
Lee Seung Gi has recently been engaged in a battle for truth due to a dispute with his agency Hook Entertainment over the unpaid settlement of music fees.
Earlier, Lee Seung Gi demanded for proof of contents from his agency through the law firm Pacific Ocean on November 17, saying that he had not properly received the proceeds of his music for over 18 years when he signed an exclusive contract with Hook Entertainment. Earlier, Hook Entertainment was in the middle of controversy after being raided by the National Police Agency.
However, on November 23, Dispatch released an alleged audio recording, which is the conversation between CEO Kwon, the director of Hook Entertainment, and the manager of Lee Seung Gi at a meeting on November 17, which caused a stir and the repercussions grew. Later, Hook Entertainment announced that the claims regarding not paying music profit earnings are false and they have cleared all debt relations between the parties when they renewed the contract with Lee Seung Gi around 2021. However, the legal representative Lee Seung Gii refuted Hook Entertainment’s statement and concluded that any further discussion with the agency is meaningless.
Meanwhile, Lee Seung Gi has been filming the movie “The Great Family” since early this month.
