On April 19, Seoul's Southern Regional Police Department revealed that GM Music filed lawsuits against 'Produce 101's Choi Eun Bin for contract violation and scamming.
According to reports, Choi Eun Bin visited GM Music at the beginning of 2016 and said she wanted to be part of rookie girl group Black Swan. However, Choi Eun Bin had already signed with Nextar Entertainment back in 2011. It turned out that she was a trainee at Nextar for 4 years, but transferred to GM Music as she found no hope at Nextar.
Then, following the label transition, Choi Eun Bin participated in Mnet's 'Produce 101', where she introduced herself as a Nextar trainee. However, GM Music was her actual supporter, and they claim that ever since she started receiving attention, she left the label with no notice, and is currently unreachable. As a result, GM Music decided to file a lawsuit because Choi Eun Bin showed no desire to return to Black Swan or the label.
Currently, netizens are in great shock following reports of this legal battle between GM Music and Choi Eun Bin.
