Band The Rose will undergo a legal battle against J&Star for contract termination and settlement problems.
On the 28th, J&Star revealed their official statement saying “Members Kim Woosung, Park Dojoon, Lee Jaehyeong, Lee Hajoon of The Rose have notified the company (J&Star Company) with a contract termination due to outstanding settlement, damage of mutual trust, violation of exclusive contract etc. However, the ‘violation of exclusive contract’ claimed by The Rose is not true.”
To follow, they added, “The contents and schedule regarding entertainment activities such as overseas tour and performances, broadcasts have been sufficiently revealed and agreed upon with The Rose. We have also agreed upon practice and makeup schedules and proceeded with all schedules. We have also provided The Rose with their balance account for their overall exclusive contract period. We have also confirmed that they received the account by checking face to face.
In addition, J&Star explained saying “The Rose have refused to communicate with us and notified us of the contract termination first, then also notified that they refused to carry on with performances promised with the fans and broadcasts. We have decided to take legal and factual measures in order to not leave bad precedents. We are also looking to penalty charges, claim for damages and criminal liability.”
To end the statement, they said “We have given strong support and investment towards The Rose for a long time so that The Rose could become a band that grows with the fans’ love. Nevertheless, we would like to express our big regret for them to damage and slander the company’s honor.
