It has been reported that members of the group OMEGA X, who were alleged to have been verbally and physically abused by their agency’s CEO during their overseas tour, bought flights at their own expense without financial support from their agencies and headed back home.
According to SBS Entertainment News’ exclusive report, 11 members of OMEGA X and one manager of the agency who was in charge of overseas tours boarded a flight to Korea departing from LA on October 24 (Korea Standard Time).
Originally, the members of OMEGA X were scheduled to depart through LA Airport on October 23 after completing their overseas tours, but the agency’s CEO unilaterally canceled their flight tickets early in the day and stranded them in the U.S. The CEO attempted to explain to SBS in a previous statement that it was predetermined due to other reasons and that they were not being stranded.
As a result, some members reportedly bought air tickets from their personal expenses with the help of their parents in Korea and came back home.
According to SBS, Kang, the CEO of the agency, was stopped by hotel guards in the U.S. for making a fuss or knocking on the door in the hotel hallway where the members were staying, and it was belatedly known that local police were dispatched twice.
Earlier, CEO Kang shouted and lectured the members at the restaurant parking lot after finishing their performance in LA, the last city of the world tour, and in the process, she was stopped by the performance staff after pushing one of the members of the group named Jaehan (real name Kim Jae Han) who fainted in the hotel lobby.
CEO Kang explained in a press conference,
Attention is focused on whether OMEGA X members who returned to their home country via Incheon International Airport today (October 25) will express their statement regarding the incident.
Wishing for the member’s safety!
