Hook Entertainment has finally addressed the controversy over the recent conflict between the agency and Lee Seung Gi’s settlement of music fees and singer Lee Sun Hee‘s management-profit distribution.
Hook Entertainment announced its position on November 25 that when Lee Seung Gi nearly completed his exclusive contract in 2021, at that time he signed the exclusive contract with them again after checking the settlement details of that time period in an agreement to confirm the financial bond debt relationship with them and also explained the allegations of the relevance of singer Lee Sun Hee mentioned in some media regarding Lee Seung Gi’s alleged settlement issue.
Check out the full statement of Hook Entertainment below:
Earlier, Lee Seung Gi demanded for a 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.
Hook Entertainment then announced in an official release on November 18, “We received content certification of content from Lee Seung Gi and are reviewing related data accordingly and preparing an answer. We will try to wrap up the problem smoothly without misunderstanding between the two sides.”
In addition, Kwon Jin Young, CEO of Hook Entertainment, said on November 21, “If Hook Entertainment or any individual is clearly confirmed to be legally responsible, we will not back down or avoid it. We will be more careful not to cause any more concern to everyone.”
However, on November 23, Dispatch released an audio recording of 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.
In the alleged audio recording, which was recorded by Lee Seung Gi’s manager, CEO Kwon said, “Now with the mindset of let’s just go for it you are asking for the certification of contents to me. I’m going to put my name on the line and kill you. I’ll spend the rest of my life aiming only at killing Lee Seung Gi. I’ll really kill him. That Mother f@cker. I swear.”
Meanwhile, despite these controversies, Lee Seung Gi will participate in the recording of season 2 of the movie “The Great Family” and the SBS entertainment show “All The Butlers” as scheduled. In particular, he recently shaved his head to film “The Great Family.”
