The agency of the group Fifty Fifty (Sena, Aran, Kina, Sio) has filed a lawsuit, accusing producer and the CEO of The Givers, An Sung-il, as the external force attempting to take away their members.
On the afternoon of the 27th of June, Fifty Fifty’s agency, Attrakt, announced they’re filing a lawsuit with Gangnam Police Station against An Sung-il and three others, they wrote,
Ahn Sung-il also known as SIAHN, a producer, is the CEO of the comprehensive content development group ‘The Givers’. He played a leading role behind ‘Cupid’.
Fifty Fifty gained attention with their song ‘Cupid,’ released in February, which unexpectedly entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart and continued its successful run, raising their popularity.
Attrakt claimed that external forces had approached Fifty Fifty on the 23rd and the CEO even conducted an interview and said he will reveal the names soon and fight to keep the members. Later on the 26th, the agency accused Warner Music Korea and sent them a statement of proof, they also demanded an explanation. In a statement to the press, Warner Music Korea denies the accusations and expressed regret such rumors have been spreading around.
In a weird turn of events, the group’s fan café had also suddenly shut down today and the agency further blamed the said external forces of shutting it down. They have since retrieved the fan café.
