As August marks the tail end of summer, female solo artists have been making notable waves in the music scene, and this momentum is set to continue into the fall. Kwon Eunbi, who began gaining attention as the "Watermelon Goddess," has continued her rise with a new album. Jeon Somi entered the top 5 of the music charts, and TWICE's Jihyo achieved half a million sales as a solo artist. Other artists like Soyou, Jo Yuri, and Yerin also showcased their prowess. Amidst the dominance of groups, the achievements of female soloists have been particularly striking.
Former LOONA member Chuu (Kim Jiwoo, 24) and her previous agency, Blockberry Creative, are set to continue their legal battle as the latter has appealed the court's decision regarding their exclusive contract dispute.
In a landmark legal decision, the 12th Civil Division of the Seoul Northern District Court has ruled in favor of former LOONA member Chuu, effectively invalidating her exclusive contract with Blockberry Creative, the entertainment company behind the renowned girl group LOONA.
The fate of the validity of the exclusive contract between Chuu (Kim Jiwoo, 24), formerly of the girl group LOONA, and her previous agency, Blockberry Creative (hereafter Blockberry), is set to be decided in court today, the 17th.
K-pop idol Chuu has found herself at the center of a controversy following a recent YouTube Shorts video where she made a shocking statement about street food. The video, which was shared on an online forum Pann Nate, showed Chuu trying Tanghulu, a popular street food, for the first time. However, it was her response to the food that has sparked outrage among netizens.
As the dispute between Chuu, a former member of the girl group LOONA, and her agency Blockberry Creative (hereinafter referred to as 'Blockberry') continues to escalate, the Korea Entertainment Management Association's (KEMA) Disciplinary Committee has sided with Chuu.
