[Zenith News=Jieun Oh] Singer Kang Daniel will set up a one-man agency and prepare for his solo debut.
“Singer Kang Daniel has established ‘KONNECT Entertainment’ for his solo debut,” the company said in an official news release on the 10th.
Through the establishment of KONNECT Entertainment, Kang Daniels aspires to connect Korea with the world through his own activities.
Earlier, on the afternoon of the 9th, Kang Daniel met with fans through a surprise live broadcast on SNS. The show drew attention as it recorded 150,000 simultaneous users within one minute of the start of the broadcast. Kang Daniel thanked the fans for waiting and said how he was working hard on his music.
Kang Daniel began preparing to establish a one-man agency shortly after his independent activities became possible on the sidelines of LM entertainment, citing the entire injunction filed by the 51st Division of Civil Affairs at the Seoul Central District Court in March.
"The decision to set up a one-person agency is based on a variety of reviews of the company's form that fits his long-term activities," a staff from KONNECT Entertainment said. "The long-awaited fans were one of the reasons to make a quick debut, too. This is because a one-man agency that can move intensively and effectively is best suited to prepare for fast activities," they explained.
Kang Daniel went into legal dispute earlier this year as he judged it difficult to continue his contract due to violation of his agency's exclusive contract. In response to the injunction, the court suspended the effect of exclusive contract with LM entertainment, while it was decided that Kang Daniel’s entertainment activities were possible regardless of LM entertainment.
The court concluded that LM entertainment made a contract that transfers most of its exclusive contract rights of Kang Daniel to a third party on January 28th, 2019, and it was the action that not only went against the exclusive contract but also came to the point where it was difficult to keep the exclusive contract relationship intact by destroying the trust relationship underlying the exclusive contract.
Accordingly, the contract between LM entertainment and Kang Daniel was suspended, and it was decided that LM entertainment should not ask for the contract negotiation, signing, and entertainment activities related to Kang Daniel's various entertainment activities, and not to obstruct his entertainment activities.
Meanwhile, Kang Daniel plans to finalize the date for his solo debut soon and showcase the details of his debut project.
