The girl group Fifty Fifty, consisting of members Keena, Sara, Aran, and Shio, has faced a new phase in their conflict with their agency, Attrakt.
Keena, one of the members, has decided to withdraw her lawsuit against Attrakt, which sought to suspend the exclusive contract. In response, Attrakt has expressed its willingness to engage in dialogue and resolve the issues amicably.
On the 16th of October, Keena’s legal representative submitted an appeal to the Seoul High Court regarding the motion to suspend the exclusive contract.
Regarding this matter, Fifty Fifty’s legal representative told Star News, “Keena has appointed a new legal representative and submitted the appeal.” When asked about the remaining three members’ appeal, they stated, “The appeals of the other members are still ongoing.” They refrained from commenting on the reasons behind Keena’s appeal withdrawal.
The 50th Civil Division of the Seoul Central District Court had previously rejected Fifty Fifty’s motion to suspend the exclusive contract with Attrakt. The court stated that it was difficult to conclude that Attrakt had violated its obligations to provide financial statements and failed to fulfill its duty to manage and care for the members’ health. In response to this decision, the members immediately appealed.
However, Keena has expressed her intention to temporarily halt the lawsuit.
In response, Attrakt conveyed to Star News that Keena expressed her desire to return to the agency, and they will engage in discussions to assess her willingness to resume activities and determine the direction. They cautiously added, “We have yet to discuss this matter with our representative in Korea.”
After this news was revealed, the group Fifty Fifty continued to expose the agency through their Instagram account. In the post published on the 16th, they mentioned a luxurious Gangnam accommodation, 90 million won worth of embezzlement by the CEO Jeon Hongjun, selling watches and cars to pay off debts, and emphasized that they had created negative public opinion by spreading untrue information. They also stated that the agency had not taken any measures to protect the artist’s rights and had neglected their responsibilities.
