The girl group FIFTY FIFTY, known as the “miracle of small planning agencies,” is facing a major crisis. Amidst the members’ health issues, external forces have approached, engaging in illegal activities such as encouraging the members to leave the agency without permission.
On the 23rd, their agency, Attrakt, publicly disclosed the current situation through a press release. FIFTY FIFTY, who conquered the U.S. Billboard chart just seven months after their debut, is now facing a dire situation.
On the 25th, Attrak’s CEO, Jeon Hong Jun, revealed the progress made since the press release through an exclusive interview with Sports Chosun.
Jeon Hong Jun stated, “Information about the identity of the external forces is coming through various routes. It won’t be long before the behind-the-scenes forces are revealed. The conclusion won’t be as the malicious intent of the behind-the-scenes forces desires. It will be a difficult time, but we will pursue legal actions until the end. As someone who has been in the Korean music industry for 30 years, I will fight against injustice and protect my honor.”
FIFTY FIFTY is the one suffering the most significant damage from this incident. Jeon Hong Jun expressed his greatest concern for the members, who will continue to be affected by this situation. He hopes that they can return to the agency soon and continue with their planned projects, including promotions in the United States.
FIFTY FIFTY achieved a remarkable feat among K-pop idols by entering the Billboard Hot 100, the main singles chart, in the shortest amount of time. FIFTY FIFTY will also participate as vocalists in the OST “Barbie Dreams” for the movie ‘Barbie,’ set to be released in July.
Stay tuned for more updates on the situation!
