Agency Files Lawsuit Against Three Former K-Pop Group Members for $10 Million

Attrakt, a Korean agency, has recently filed a lawsuit for breach of contracts against three former members of the K-pop girl group Fifty Fifty. The agency is seeking compensation and penalty for the alleged breach.

Fifty Fifty, which debuted in November last year, gained attention through their song “Cupid,” which made it to the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The former members facing the lawsuit are Saena, Aran, and Sio. They, along with another member Keena, had previously filed an injunction against Attrakt in June, seeking to suspend their exclusive contracts. However, the Seoul Central District Court dismissed their application for an injunction in August, and Keena has since returned to Attrakt after withdrawing her lawsuit.

Subsequently, Attrakt terminated the contracts of Saena, Aran, and Sio in October. The agency has now filed a 13 billion won (about $10 million) lawsuit against the three former members. The lawsuit also names the parents of the former members and individuals from the outsource company The Givers, who are accused of participating in the breach of contracts.

Attrakt’s lawyer, Park Jae-hyun, stated, “We will do our best to carry out the lawsuit, keeping in mind that this lawsuit may be an important opportunity to establish a fair trade order in the entertainment sector beyond the simple recovery of damage.” This suggests that Attrakt views the lawsuit as a chance to set a precedent for fair practices in the entertainment industry.
