A statement from Jung Hyosung’s lawyer confirmed that the singer won’t be returning to SECRET and TS Entertainment.
Hyosung reportedly filed a civil lawsuit against the agency in September 2017 to apply for the nullification of her exclusive contract.
“I concluded that I could not continue with TS Entertainment anymore and sent the contents to the agency in June 2017. I tried to solve the problem smoothly but ended up filing a lawsuit.”
— Statement from Hyosung’s lawyer
The main reasons behind her application to cancel her contract were unreceived payments and the unauthorized transfer of her contract contents to another company.
These grievances are actually similar on many counts to Song Jieun’s contract nullification.
Hyosung also expressed a strong stand on her contract with TS Entertainment.
“The trust with TS Entertainment has already broken down. It is pointless to discuss it.”
As the lawsuit has now become public knowledge, there has been a great deal of pressure on Hyosung’s current entertainment activities.
Aside from being a member of SECRET, Hyosung has been engaged in solo promotions with a sexy concept and appearing on television programs.
TS Entertainment has released a comment about Jung Hyosung’s contract invalidation:
“We recently lost communication with Hyosung and learned about the lawsuit afterwards. It was unilateral announcement about her contract invalidation.”
